Seems like Suda51 saw Frozen, played Dark Souls, and then got the lyrics mixed up.

The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Aonuma Looking To Incorporate Wind Waker's GPS-Like GamePad Functionality Into Zelda Wii U

Posted on Monday, September 9 @ 11:06:35 PST by Alex_Osborn

ZeldaproducerEiji Aonuma has been workinghard on a number of new games, not the least of which include the upcoming high definition remake of Wind Wakerfor Wii U. Fans of the franchise will be all too familiar with the game's sprawling open world, something Aonuma would like to incorporate in the first originalZeldatitle for Nintendo's tablet-centric console.

Speaking toIGN, he explained how the new uses of the GamePad inWind Waker HDwill most definitely spill over into the new entry in the series.
Of course, we’re looking at the new Zelda game for Wii U, and absolutely, working on these titles has influenced and impacted the development of the new Wii U title.

For example, in Wind Waker, we’re using the GamePad to travel around in the boat, using it almost like a GPS controller. I really want to take that mechanic and implement it in the Wii U game. I’m not saying that we’re going to be in a boat, but we’re going to be traveling around in the adventure. I think the GamePad is something that can allow us to make that as smooth and enjoyable an experience for the end user as possible.


But that's not the only upcoming Zeldagame Aonuma is pulling elements from, asA Link Between Worlds, the new 3DS title, will also be a major source of creative inspiration. "Also, with A Link Between Worlds, we have some brand new elements, some never before seen in Zelda play styles in that game," he added. "I don’t have any direct or concrete examples, but it’s definitely bleeding over into the development on Wii U."

What elements from priorZeldagames would you like to see incorporated into the new mysterious Wii U title? Sound off in the comments below and let us know.
