One of the most controversial and polarized opinions on the Zelda franchise is whether or not Nintendo should implement voice acting. With the emergence of the Wii U and an opportunity to start fresh on the direction of the Zelda games, will Nintendo use this to try something new?

So far we have seen that Link has access to a horse in Zelda U—presumably Epona—and can ride across an open field freely. As of now, we haven’t seen any other potential methods of transport; the footage we have seen is so minimal that the lack of information doesn’t matter because the possibilities for the game are, for the moment, endless.

Zelda games typically adhere to a certain formula and style of play: You explore the environment around you, collect powerful weapons and upgrades, traverse dungeons while solving puzzles, and they usually end with you saving the world, or even worlds in some cases. However, the release of Hyrule Warriors has illustrated that Nintendo may finally be coming out of their comfort zone and are willing to try radically different things with their existing IPs. In fact, it’s fair to say that Hyrule Warriors is more a Dynasty Warriors game than a Zelda game.
Could this be the start of an emerging trend? Is this something you’d like to see more of? Hit the jump to see what I have to say about it. Read more…
