I agree the WW:HD characters kinda look like plastic figurines, perhaps this was a stylistic decision as it reminds me a LOT of the Pictograph / figure colleciton side quest? Who knows.


i rather like the plasticy look

I've not seen a huge amount of WW HD content in order to compare it to the original but broadly speaking I don't mind the inclusion of bloom too much. It's the changing of the block lighting/shading mechanism on the characters that really kills it IMO.

It's about as red hot as my comment the other day on Facebook which was just

"Thanks for your feedback."

I never really liked Skyloft tbh, it had potential but as the hub and sole town it’s so static and lifeless. 10 years on from Majora and Clocktown its staggering what a large backward step it is. There are a few fun sidequests but its not really anywhere that was enjoyable to hand out it.

It adds a lot to the various weather effects in the game. Plus the interiors and exteriors feel far more distinct because the sun actually feels bright.

It really does, shame they couldn’t have kept the character models from the GC version with the Wii U’s better lighting. Although maybe they tried it and thought it looked terrible :lol:

Are the character models any different? In the comparison shot shared from yesterday it looks like the base model is the same but the lighting and shading is what has been changed to alter the appearance

I don’t know if the models are any different but they definitely don’t look as cel-shaded? They could be the same and the lighting could have just caused them to have the slightly plasticity look?

Skyward Sword was my least favourite Zelda game by a long way. There was so much about it that I hated. :lol:

Not that I'd ever buy this new version, but I'm interested to see what they change (if anything) other than a visual spruce up.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.
