I'm going to have to agree with whoever said ZI is just trolling us with these rumors--I feel like this especially after the "confirmation" of the German translator or whatever.
These sound like they could be plausible extrapolations of previous information that we've gotten. But mostly these rumors just sound crap, and I hope they're untrue. I'll take them one at a time.
Zelda Wii's official title is "The Legend of Zelda". There will be no subtitle.
Yeah, no. Just because there was no subtitle on the poster revealed last year doesn't mean there is none. Also it's a terrible idea. Sonic the Hedgehog 2006, anyone?
The game tells a story several hundred years before Ocarina of Time.It also answers the question of how the Mastersword came into being.
I'm meh on this one. I think I sort of preferred the original rumor about this game starring the Hero of Time 7 years after the child ending (and MM). Frankly I don't really care when the game takes place so long as the game itself is awesome.
The fairy-like girl plays is a very important character in the game. Her Name is Zordiana.
The first part is duh, and the second part--yeah, I liked "Adelle" better.
The Hookshot is also in the game and it has new abilities. It will not pull you immediately to the target you aimed. Now it is possible to swing with the Hookshot, like with the Grappling Hook from WW.
So one of the brand new abilities of this new Hookshot is the amazing ability to aim at a target and not immediately pull yourself over? THIS IS REVOLUTIONARY STUFF! Um, yeah, this is almost certainly a false rumor. The Hookshot as Grappling Hook has some potential, though.
The Hookshot makes no use of Wii Motion Plus.
Sometimes you have to "draw" a specific symbol on a door with your sword, to open it.
Because that was such a huge hit with fans in PH and ST. Plus, who the hell draws with a sword
? Are people actually believing any of these rumors?
The Bow-Control is very similar to the Bow-Control in Wii Sports Resort, as the script shows.
Script? What script? Also, I've never played Wii Sports Resort, so this is meaningless to me.
However, from everything I've heard from those who have
played Wii Sports Resort, the Bow just got a lot more difficult and complicated to use and will be particularly inefficient in the heat of battle. Oh joy.
There are two levels of difficulty. Aonuma put it through. Miyamoto didn't want to include it.The Normal-Mode for amateurs. The Hero-Mode has no "Super Guide" included and the enemies tougher.
I actually don't have a problem with this. While I would play through Hero Mode, the completionist in me would probably have to play Normal Mode too just to experience everything.
Assuming all of this is true, of course, which I still doubt heavily.
The On-Stage Dungeon, which is also playable at E3, isn't a Dungeon as we know it from the Zelda series. When entering a Dungeon, you will not notice you are in one. It will be a smooth gradation. There will be Dungeons with no Bosses and Bosses with no Dungeon. The "Dungeon" you are able to play at E3 will be an Ice-Level. It will be the frist "Dungeon" in the Game.
This sounds like pure extrapolation from a previous Nintendo comment, "TP is the last game of its kind." How exactly does one move gradually from overworld to dungeon? Dungeons are almost invariably indoors. Sure there are exceptions like WW's Forsaken Fortress and Forbidden Woods, TP's City in the Sky, and even those courtyard rooms in OoT's Forest Temple. And especially starting with an ice stage? This just sounds like too much of a stretch to me.
