It's so weird seeing this shit in Zelda, yet so right
Hilda just wanted to steal the triforce for herseld and had sent Yuga
Cia's is corrupted by Ganondorf's influence, but seals him again and tosses the two triforce pieces. Timeline fuckery ensues due to Sacred Realm shenanigans
Was that announced earlier or is that whole bit in the first post
This is not a zelda game, this is a Musou game and they are literally moving their lips in the cutscenes and only making grunting sounds.
Why would anyone be so retarded to defend this shit?
Yeah the chicks are hot, yeah the hentai is gonna be glorious but no voice acting with this kind of pretty cutscenes is full blown retarded.
Cia is less so because she's empowered by darkness and triforces and shit.
They're the guardians of the Triforce, though, so they kinda have to be a little OP. I agree Lana is a bit ridiculous.
Maybe they were going to do that back when they were thinking about Linkelle.
Cia: Link I love you
Link (via grunts and hand gestures): Oh sorry Cia, Zelda is having my babies
Cia: Fuck everything
And then Linkelle would have to go back in time to make sure she was still born.
But in this game it's not that.
Semantics, link doesn't do shit and is inside a bottle, you're fighting people as the fairy so she might as well be considered playable even if she isn't a technical "slot" on the menu
>Lana has three movesets.
>The only characters with as many, aside from Link, are Midna and Zelda.
>Shia is not only unplayable, but one of Lana's movesets is not being Shia, despite Link having a Great Fairy moveset.
>How was she kill?
I think she's killed by anyone you choose.
In this playthrough, it was Zelda.
Instea of shitty canon japanese grunting like fucking autists like it's currently the case?
With that weird aonuma puppet look of the 3D zeldas it worked. They looked like creepy marionettes, made one grunt and then kept their idle position. Here it's fully animated faces and lips
>Wanting a dub for Link & co, by Koei
"Neither my heart or my master sword have broken! We shall meet again! HYAAAAAAAAAAAA"
>Yeah, it would be that bad
He was the DARK FORCE trying to use Cia to get the Triforce for himself.
Cia was stronger once she had the Triforce and sealed him instead, becoming the villain.
Once Link/whoever defeats Cia, Ganondorf is set free.
SURPRISE GANON FINAL BOSS.
>Those long legs and plump thighs
>That dark skin with silver hair
I want to fuck her. Goddam why can't a girl like this exist in real life.
I can't bring myself to fap to dead girls
Cia seal him thanks to triforce
Link go grab dat mastah sword to defeat CIA
Mastah sword was also used to maintain Ganondorf sealed
Ganondorf wakes and start impaling everything, getting that triforce back home.
Sort of reminds me of how feminists rally behind Powergirl, and yet her huge breasts are the product of a joke that the artist had.
He really just said "everytime I draw her, I'll make her boobs bigger until someone notices".
Here is everything glued together.
No, you gay ass autist nigger piece of shit manbaby fedora-tipper.
In the previous games they acted like marionettes.
They grunted, and then moved around in the idle position while the text scrolled down.
They had no big ass cutscenes with detailed animated lip movement in 720p.
The previous zelda games worked like this.
>TEXT BOX FILLS WITH TEXT AND MAKES "DING" WHEN FULL LIKE A FUCKING TYPWRITER
repeat ad nauseum
>/v/ shits on people for embracing cancerous titles that ruin a series
>love generic animu slut Lana unironically
>hyped about a shitty musuo knockoff
>"u-us Nintendo guys are super critical of ourselves!"
You guys are dead to me.
This shit is making me post an equality shitty gif to represent how shitty I feel about this.
Dog tags are my hopes and dreams.
Point is Bowletta is not Bowser, and Shadow Bowser also isn't. And I refuse to consider the one in PiT the final boss because he could have very much have been a cutscene. It was just as a closure enemy, kinda like the final battle in Devil May Cry 4 with the cutscene showing.
>The OCs are more powerful than Ganondorf
Let me tell you, that's bullshit.
The entire thread should be uniformly shitting on her generic shitty design and uniformly rejecting this shitty cashcrab knockoff.
>But it has nothing to do with the main series.
>It's a spin off.
Yes, I'm sure the sales and hype surrounding Lana will in no way reflect on the Zelda series. You fucking idiot. I'll just say it now: you guys dug your own grave if you're a Zelda fan and you support this stupid shit.
>Getting this upset that a game doesn't have voice acting.
>Calling others autists.
Do they all need QTEs in their cutscenes too? There's no excuse not to anymore!
IT'S THOSE EYES
THEY HAVE THE SAME EYES
It's just not the same. She has brain damage thanks to only being half a person, she's not brown, she doesn't have white hair. She's barely aware of what she's doing and just shakes her body on instinct.
She's fun to play as but fucking hell they've trying hard to make me hate everything else about her.
It's kinda weird to see that Cia has very young looking face for that obviously full grown body.
But oh well i'll do my part, and just shut up and fap vigorously.
TecmoKoei please stop with the sexy walks my boner cannot contain
>Lana proves popular enough for her to become a mainstay of mainline Zelda games
>she ends up in Smash 5
>she gets her own spin off games like Tingle
>she replaces Zelda as the main woman of LoZ games
>Aonuma undergoes hormone treatment and surgery to look like Lana
>Nintendo renames itself "Lantenda" in honor of their best character
>Lana is the main character
>Thirsty ass niggas, waifufags have no problem with it
I would not worry normally just like with the fags around here crying for a FemLink, but this is a game aimed to build a fanbase in Japan, if the nipons love Lana too much the chances of that bitch has to appear in a main Zelda title are pretty fucking big.
>Barely any characters for a DW game

Why were people hyped for this?
How is it shitty design may I ask?
How is it a "cashgrab knockoff"? Nintendo are clearly trying to do something different, what's wrong with that? They did it with Mystery Dungeon, and that turned out great. I think you should go take a hot bath with rose petals, clear your head, realize that you're not going to change anyone's mind and redirect your anger at something that's actually important.
>/v/ complains that Zant was a shitty villain because he was just being used by Ganondorf
>Nintendo makes Yuga take Ganon's power for his own
>Tecmo makes Cia to use the triforce tha Ganondorf make her steal to seal him and continue being the villian without having to serve Ganondorf
>/v/ complains that Ganondorf is not strong enough
>Still better than the recurring Zelda characters we already have
>Genki Miku clone taken out of IDOLMASTER rejected characters
>Good in any way
You have to be a full weeaboo to think that.
>Why were people hyped for this?
Because it featured a dime a dozen generic retarded cutesy anime girl as a prominent character and /v/ is fucking retarded when it comes to fanservice.
>Cause they latch onto no voice acting being tradition for no reason and pretend all voice acting is terrible so it would ruin the game
There old zelda games also had 16 colors
>i don't care if anyone finds her attractive or not, she has an oversexualized/impractical design and that's what i corrected.
I just can't play a game if I've been spoiled, I lose all my enjoyment playing it. You know what's going to happen and in the back of your head you're always thinking about it when playing the game
99% of games have voice acting now and most are fine to amazing. It is very rare we get horrible voice acting and that is usually down to the script which would be shit spoken or not
>How is it shitty design may I ask?
Because she is completely generic. There is absolutely nothing new, refreshing, or exciting about her design. She only exists for boner material. She's a moeblob.
>How is it a "cashgrab knockoff"?
It's a knockoff of musuo games that does nothing inventive. It has cheap design. It has DLC.
I don't care if I change anyone's mind. I'm content angrily pointing out how you're all immense faggots for supporting this stupid shit.
It wouldn't be so bad if /v/ didn't see itself as apparently the last bastion of sane gamers who reject SJW nonsense, developer jewing, and awful design practices in gaming. You guys think you're so much better than other gamers, but you aren't. You guys just turn into complete fucking morons when it comes to Nintendo and/or tits and/or cute retarded anime girls.
Inventing a spoken language is not as easy as just tossing an invented alphabet, and if we take into account every single game has a different alphabet.
Shit is not going to happen anytime soon.
Kid Icarus Uprising doesn't stop the game to make you listen to people. KIU utilizes voice acting in a way a traditional Zelda game can never do.
That's why voice acting would be awful in Zelda: you'd read a textbox in a second and then feel obligated to listen to some guy finish reading. Eventually you'd get tired of the voice acting and just skip through everything.
I'm a minority in this, but I hate voice acting. I always turn it off. Text is better.
Voices bring too much reality to a game. Voiced moments in games never convey the intensity of it as well as text does or as well as your imagination can make it. It's why I prefer music and no voice acting. It conveys a mood better than voice actors.
>Game is announced
>Board consensus seems that the game will be good
>Time passes, we more previews
>Board consensus turns on it, now its going to be shit
Every fucking time, through out the years, its always the same shit with you stupid faggots.
At this point you guys declaring a game bad means its actually going to be good.
>implying that voice acting in a Zelda game can't be the best thing ever
>implying you don't like Tetra
>implying you don't love Tetra
The initial release of every game is always "WOOOOW BLUNDER OF THE CENTURY, STREAM PROVES IT" here. You'll get a more balanced discussion of the game when more people are actually playing it, instead of being whining about Lana and Saria.

>before you think about commenting with something idiotic please do the following:

How about you come back when you learn proper grammar kid, and maybe then when your balls drop you'll see the appeal of titties.
I still have it preordered it, but no playable Cia is a bummer.
>more information becomes available and people change their opinions based on that information
Stupid assholes. Why can't you guys remain naively optimistic about everything indefinitely?
At least then it made sense and it worked well.
Here it's just "OH LOOK AT THIS CHICK SHE'S SO CUTE AND BUBBLY AND HAS MAGIC POWERS FOR SOME REASON AND SHE SINGS THE ZELDA THEME IN THE TRAILER, ISN'T THAT CUTE? OH BY THE WAY SHE'S THE GOOD PART OF CIA, DO YOU RIKE IT?"
None of that explains why its bad design. Don't care if she looks "generic", don't care if she's not "innovative", don't care if she only exists for boner material, that's all opinion. She isn't generic for a Zelda game in that she look Japanese rather than a European, and her being boner fodder is a good thing. Her colors don't clash, she has a symmetrical face which ties in with the "pure" theme and she's not covered in useless trinkets. Sometimes its better to have a well made Meatloaf than a shit Beluga Caviar.
Its a collaboration. It would be a knockoff if they had copied Musuo games with a lack of quality control. DLC is bad if we have to pay for it, I agree there. Doesn't make it a bad game, it makes Nintendo faggots.
/v/ doesn't see itself as anything, because /v/ is fucking data on a server somewhere.
>game is announced
>people are hyped at the potential
>more details get revealed.
>problems become obvious, potential isn't reached, people are disappointed
This isn't really surprising.
In this case, it's a Musou game (as people are finally realizing) with a limited cast, no online support, and DLC.
It's not necessarily a bad game, but the "hype" was for potential it didn't meet. Characters were left out (quite a few of them), gameplay wasn't anything new, graphics are shit for current gen, etc etc etc.
Again, it's probably a good game, but it had the potential to be great, and it won't be.
Midna has a unique design. Lana does not. I could right at this moment pull up about 300 different anime designs that look very close to or pretty much identical to Lana that only have slightly different shades of hair or eyes.
You cannot do the same for Midna.
>Midna was did not defeat Ganondorf.
I was watching this dipshit play on Twitch earlier. He actually managed to get killed playing on Normal on one of the earliest levels. Plus, he kept taking breaks on the stream to upload videos to youtube to get his shekels.
What a bunch of bullshit.
Movies more heavily rely on CG now and they're shittier than they've ever been. What's your point?
Modern forms of entertainment have lost a lot of their appeal precisely because they either aim too much for realism or their fantastical moments are so clean and plastic looking that it just looks artificial and difficult to immerse yourself in.
>Dies in the end

Fuck this gay earth
IS FIERCE DEITY LINK IN THE GAME!? THIS WILL DECIDE WHETHER OR NOT I BUY A WII U JUST TO PLAY THIS GAME! I MUST KNOW!
>takes off the mask
that was extremely painful for me to watch
You never played a Zelda game do you? She doesn't fit at all, but that's not the problem here.
The problem is that she is a character that doesn't fit in a game that was supposed to let you play as many Zelda character and on top of that she is basically the main character.
>None of that explains why its bad design. Don't care if she looks "generic", don't care if she's not "innovative", don't care if she only exists for boner material,
You're a fucking idiot. This part of your post was so stupid that I'm not even going to read the rest of your post because I'm sure it's similarly retarded. You're obviously not familiar with the term "moeblob", or you'd know that Lana fits that to a T.
I'd think Miyamoto got his hands on this games script
What's all this talk of the CIA being in this Zelda game?
This, in the animu crossover SRW, the OC is only really super relevant in the first few stages, the middle of the game when they get their obligatory upgrade, and the very end after all the anime plots have ended and they need a villain that they all have an excuse to hate on as an actual final boss.
Yes, voice acting adds an element of realism to the games. It makes them more grounded and "real" than just text, which is more like reading a story. Much like reading a fictional novel is less grounded in reality than watching a live action version of the novel since they are presented very differently.
Okay I'll do it, I ain't even shitting you just give me a sec.
Yeah everyone who has a negative opinion of Hyrule Warriors or Lana is just trying to fit in.
You could just wait to play it, instead of bitching about him bitching endlessly.
Seems like my only hope now is doujins with Cia making Link her slave.
it's not bad or anything
to be honest, it would be kind of nice to have her have a more plainclothes outfit for at least part of her introduction.
that way you could have a nice sexy reveal complete with the evil smirk
then everybody's boner is happy
You fags are so trying to fit in, it's so blatantly obvious. There's complaining about a game and then there's complaining about a game that you've never played because you saw someone playing the game for a bit. Nevermind the fact that you idiots probably don't understand japanese, so you don't even know what the fuck Lana does.
This happens with every new game release and it's so fucking stupid.
>I remember the same shit happened with MGR
Are you kidding? The hype when the game came out and the following weeks was huge, every page had a RULES OF NATURE thread.
It's only now people have agreed the game is just good not amazing
Yeah but she doesnt have brown skin and white hair.
It's a musou spinoff. What were you expecting, no fanservice girls whatsoever?
And anyone who hasn't played a later musou game should now that this'll be shit. I'm 90% sure that the only reason Nintendo went with this is because the franchise is dying in Nipland and they made this half-assed spinoff from a popular franchise to breathe new life into it again. It fucking shows with all of the reused TP/SS assets and the DLC jewagery.
As much as I've seen retards creaming over her, I've not seen a single post saying that she will be a good character. She is very obviously just moeblob fanservice with no personality.
Did you miss everyone debunking that even before the game was out? And again all the rules of etc threads, armstrong appreciation and just just talking about all the good bosses
because we were hyped over the idea what this game could be, then it turns out there isn't enough what we wanted. Smashfags are pretty stupid though. the roster is perfect, anything else is just gravy
>You fags are so trying to fit in, it's so blatantly obvious.
I'm not trying to fit in. I fucking hate most of the people on this board.
Lana is a shitty design. There is no arguing this. There's no denying this. Her sole purpose is to give fat losers boners because they like retarded airheaded girls that act like 5 year olds with no real personality traits.
The game itself just looks underwhelming and thin.
>Nevermind the fact that you idiots probably don't understand japanese, so you don't even know what the fuck Lana does.
Someone who has taken Japanese 101 can read everything in the webms in this thread. It is that simple. You can link one if you want and I'll translate it for you. I'm not even fluent. But the text is intended for children to be able to understand, so yeah.
I just don't understand why Agitha is in the game.
Like, she would be fine if the roster was much, much bigger. But as it's only 13 characters, her inclusion is just bizarre. Especially when you think of some of the characters that have been skipped over in favour of her.
From what I've seen, she doesn't even really do anything in the story or have any links to anyone. She's literally just there.
It's almost like she was added JUST to get our hopes up of all sorts of weird characters getting added. In the end, she was the only actually weird choice.
Is Cia actually in love with Dark Link?
This scene perplexes me.
post your face when best girl dies and doesn't get the Hero's dick
No, they're saving them for the sequels or the DLC.
Lana is a pretty smart choice and move from a business perspective actually. Japanese gamers who aren't familiar with Zelda will be all over that.
If anything, I'd be more concerned what shitty spinoffs and total moeblob characters like Lana could mean for the future of the series.

He literally means the first two or three stages, a single stage in the middle of the game, and the final chapter. The early parts require an original character to bring the other stories together under one group, they get a tiny bit of focus in the middle to keep them from entirely fading from the story, and then they get to take the ending so it doesn't seem "unfair", picking one franchise as more important than the others.
Zant got fucking blown up by Midna, and he still came back in this one. Ganondorf and Vaati are constantly crawling back from the dead.
If they ever did want to bring her back in a future game, they can find a way. Especially with the time travelling stuff.
Guess what faggot? You don't have to play it.
>tfw I understand everything that is wrong with LanaCia but I still want to defend it because they're qt
What have I become
>Japanese gamers who aren't familiar with Zelda will be all over that.
They aren't familiar with the characters, so lets introduce a new character who is even less familiar
Even if you weren't wrong about the first part that is retarded. Zelda is less popular there than the west but is still hugely popular
>Cia traveling to different routes and fucking each Link.
My boner is ready.
Because some of the better selling games in Japan are now pure pandering material.
Agitha is a loli, doesn't require much time to model since she's essentially just reused TP assets - and was a popular TP character in Japan.
I can assure you that this game was created under crunch time and the only reason they went with TP, OoT (3D) and fucking SS is due to the reused assets.
Have you seen the sales?
Ever since PH, the Zelda franchise took a huge nosedive over there. And since Nintendo largely lives in a bubble where they'd rather cater to Japanese gamers over the rest of the world, it makes sense.
His first appearance, really
He was the final test for Link to obtain the Triforce of Courage: after that hard as balls quest, the final challenge he faced would be the only other warrior as skilled as him
Of course then OoT happened, made him an surprisingly difficult out-of-place midboss, and he's been in the fandom seat ever since
I just want to curbstomp everything as Ganondorf. I hope there's a hypothetical route where he kills all the heroes, kills Ghirahim and Zant, and then assumes absolute power with the Triforce under his command.
>Is it seriously nothing but waifus, Link, Darunia, and Ganon?
Why are you even mad about this? This is what /v/ asks for with their wallet. You are telling developers with your wallet that you want shallow eye candy, and you're getting it.
>implying you wouldn't fuck Iza so hard you'd tear her pussy down to her asshole and give birth to the Rito
Why don't you just look at some of the character models or the DLC skins and see for yourself?
It's so fucking obvious this game is the byproduct of crunch time and reused assets. Of course neither Nintendo or Team Ninja would ever be willing to admit it in an interview though.
I can't remember how he came into being in 4 Swords, but to me it made sense there.
Link was already split up into four, so you could easily argue that his dark side split off as a result of the Four Swords too.
Christ why did they have to off her?
>Include interesting characters like Zant and Ghirahim
>They're never in the Story mode
>They never interact with other characters
This must be a lie. I saw some screens of what looks like them in a cutscene with Ganondorf.
>B-But you don't need to play it!
>B-but you should be happy for what we have!
>B-but they'll release a better sequel!
Guess what, fagbutt? It's two-thousand-and-fucking-fourteen and games now have a budget ranging in the high millions. The average musou game has over fourty characters. This game has the full backing of Nintendo and decades of rich franchise history to choose from. The idea that this is an acceptable product in any shape or form is pathetic pandering from butthurt fanboys who'll lick the shit from the floor if it means being fed. Koei were handed a fucking goldmine and they could've worked with it and produced some top-quality content. We could've seen some of this series' legends being given new life on screen and instead we got waifu-pandering, outright lies and 'please understand'. You're being sold a shitty product in the most exploitative way and just because you're too brainwashed by a little T&A to see it, doesn't mean everyone is.
I guess that is an actual part of the plot. Still I feel like that's fudged up at least. The story behind AoL is that the King couldn't trust anyone with the triforce of courage so he made an elaborate series of blinds to test a hero capable of it. Yet a wizard standing feet from it is the one that provides this final test for it.
But I guess if I'm challenging that I should ask why Dark Link give Link's blood to Ganon. I mean... He'd have the triforce then... right?
>Either work an extra day or two to make Cia playable
>Make a second nico stream where you marathon through Twilight Princess
Japan knows how to delicious brown.
Yes you did, faggot. If not you specifically, most of this board has. Just look at how many "hurrr I wanna fuq dis gurl so hard omg dem eyes tfw i will never lick her butt sweat ;_;" posts there are on this shit ass board. You faggots are directly responsible for retardation like this.
But all the zelda games have different styles. That means they'd have to edit the models a huge amount for them to even fit. And you still have no actual proof than you think they might have
>She only exists for boner material. She's a moeblob.
Compare the models son, the characters outside of the ones shown early on (Link/Zelda/Ganon/Impa/Shiek) are actually redesigned. Everyone else is virtually identical to their original appearance.
Wind Waker wouldn't work thanks to the art style, the models, the textures, etc. Including WW representation would mean working from the ground-up, which neither Koei or Nintendo wanted to do apparently.
