Do you guys think we'll get some Zelda 3DS news at e3 next week?
Yes I believe there will be a mention of a Zelda game in development for the 3DS but whether we get a trailer or not depends on how far along they are with the game. It might simply be a remake announcement, no MM guaranteed as the remake in question though.
The problem with Zelda 3DS at the moment is that we have no idea when its coming at all. I don't think it'll be this year though, as I think Ninty would have hyped it up more by now.
I think we'll get nothing at worst and a short trailer at best. Not a gameplay trailer, maybe just a short, ambiguous cutscene. I'm hoping for a title and a some art in particular since that provides lovely opportunities for entertaining speculation.
Speaking of Zelda 3DS, what type of graphics would people like for it? I'm sort of tired of the Wind Waker graphics for hand-helds, so I'd like if they went back to the Ocarina-style (albeit greatly improved). Skyward Sword's graphics were good too, but I'd rather a more Ocarina-style game as far as aesthetics go.

As much as I love the DS, I'm kinda hoping for something more akin to OoT3D's style. The DS didn't have the best cel shading (unlike WW) and it kinda got old after two games. Sure, the 3DS could expand on that, make it look more like Wind Waker, though I'd personally want something more... fresh.
I love WW but I agree that it's probably true that they've exhausted WW style games... at least for the time being.
Either way, if Nintendo wants to get me hyped to buy a Wii U or finally cave to buy a 3DS Zelda's definitely the way to do it (or Metroid).
Zelda 3DS will more then likely be a game for this year, with Wii U Zelda either next year or the year after. As for its artstyle, wouldn't mind for it to be full 3D with a new look. What I would really love is if they give us 2 games like the oracles working with streetpass/spotpass.
CBA to multiquote, so I'll just sum up my thoughts.
Graphics. If possible, I'd love to see Cel-shaded graphics return.
Camera: Is it safe to assume that considering OOT managed to use the "standard" main console Zelda camera angle, our nezt handheld will follow in the same vein?
I'm personally quite optimistic we'll get something announced on the 3DS. Nintendo need a good E3 IMO given that they've had a poor year and the announcement of a new Zelda would, one assumes, generate great interest. I'm sure they could drag out 30 seconds worth of teaser.
Also, Spirit Tracks was a good three years ago (I think). Handheld gaps are rarely more than three years.
Edit: Yeah ST was at the end of 09, so the large gap is justified thanks to the 3DS. And for anyone who thinks that SS being out last year is a point against a game coming this year, TP was in 06 with PH in 07.
Or, you know, they can always say they were secretly working on Majora's Mask 3D. All they have to do is edit the OoT3D engine.Edit: Yeah ST was at the end of 09, so the large gap is justified thanks to the 3DS.
