I’ll just start with a little rant:
Hello to everyone in the Zelda Community. I am currently visiting Los Angeles in the United States.
Many people from the media kept asking me if the footage from the new Zelda game for Wii U is just a promotional movie, but that really is actual gameplay on Wii U. Also, I wasn’t kidding about how you will be able to reach the mountains that appear in the distance if you should choose to!

What you see in bold in this quote is something that should have been obvious since E3 2011 exactly 3 years ago:
Get on with the times, media people: no matter how contrary it is to your business model.
Let’s do this in music.
A Zelda game without boundaries. A Zelda game in which the world in itself is the puzzle.
A Zelda game that looks like a painting. A Zelda game vibrant in color and atmosphere.
Piano-based soundscape. Peace of mind and ambiant effects in the foreground.
A soundtrack like this is a fantasy no more, and suits the mood all the better.
I’m more than excited for the new Legend of Zelda on Wii U and I can’t wait to play it when it launches in 2015.
The rest is conversation.
…Wanna play? Buy a Wii U.
