Personal review

This demo shown to the public does not represent the game that is being developed.
(this video has been extensively restored from shaky, partially obscured shot of the original being played on an HD screen. While it cannot possibly be 100% accurate, it represents the original very well and contributes no significant errors.)

Editor note

It is reported that the smallest dungeon in the game is as large and Ocarina's Hyrule Field. The larger dungeons will actually be divided into multiple sub dungeons and take more than 2 hours to complete. Each dungeon will offer 'a unique gameplay experience'. Kind of like each dungeon being a completely new Zelda game. The game is expected to utilize all 25 GB of available storage on the BluRay. The graphics will be 1080p. Well more than 200 people divided into multiple teams have been working on this game since 2010. There will be online features line Miiverse and in-game tip sharing, butv no online multiplayer. Its built on a custom engine, as expected. As of 2012-09-14, the tech demos and screenshots previously seen by the public are not representative of the game except for the image of an adult Link playing an ocarina in the forest. Much of the game's design has been based on features of the tablet controller. Some tablet controller features themselves were suggested by members of the Zelda Wii-U team. If the team does as they say, then this game will take advantage of NFC, 6-axis motion sensors, touchscreen, camera, handwriting recognition, microphone, stereo speakers, rumble features.
