I look at this futuristic interpretation of The Legend of Zelda series as being similar to Clockwork Empire concept, proposed by Aaron Diaz. They’re both good and really cool, but I don’t honestly ever expect to see either of them happen.

This one more so than the Clockwork idea, as it is more than a just a rule #63 switch. This would make the series feel more like a Metroid game than a Zelda title. Still, maybe this incarnation of Link could be like Pinocchio where he’s striving to be a real boy. Or maybe the soul of hero from the past contained inside this robot shell and he’s fighting for the future. There really are a lot of possible directions.

Remember, I didn’t say this wasn’t a cool idea. I just said I don’t expect anything like this will actually ever happen.

    Does this Hero unit have a Triforce?

    The first time I played Twilight Princess, I was like “wait, no am playing inside a videogame reality or what” (the first time the darklings showed up). For the whole game I expected to wake up (in game) at some point, being like “sh*t! All was just a simulation”.

    Those who played FEZ, know what I’m talking about, the second time I had this feeling.

    Now regarding this reinterpretation – I’d play both of them. If its cool, so what. I only don’t like the DS games, too short, gameplay mostly crap, but cost way too much. Can not speak about Link Between Worlds

    Same with the FF ports for DS. Why does it always have to be 3D?!
