Tears of the Kingdom got voted "Most anticipated game of 2023" at Famitsu.https://www.famitsu.com/news/202303/18296051.htmlHere's Aonuma's comment (translated with DeepL)>At the "Famitsu/Dengeki Game Awards 2022" held on March 18, "The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom" was selected as the most anticipated new title for 2023.>Commenting on the award, Aonuma, producer of the "The Legend of Zelda" series, said, "This is a very wonderful award.>The entire development team is delighted to receive such a wonderful award! In the previous title, Breath of the Wild, players experienced a new Zelda world where they are free to go anywhere and do anything they want, and in the sequel, Tears of the Kingdom, we have packed in even more new gameplay where players' freedom of imagination will change the game world. I am sure that all of you who voted for this game will be very happy with the results. I am sure that everyone who voted for this game will find it a fresh surprise, and I hope that you will enjoy the "unknown" Hyrule as much as you want to. Thank you! "Even more new gameplay"?"Changing the game world"?"Fresh surprise"?"Unknown Hyrule"?When is the next trailer?
>>631338428thats a kids game
>>631338428not necessarily my most anticipated ( that would be AC6) ,I'm still looking forward to playing iton my pc , kek>>631338478Bait , but I agree
>>631338428Well, yeah. Obviously there will be a bunch of new shit they haven't shown yet for some reason.>>631338478>kids gamePleonasm
>>631338428>"Even more new gameplay"?>"Changing the game world"?>"Fresh surprise"?>"Unknown Hyrule"?No shit its a new game
>most anticipated game of 2023Does this honestly come as a surprise to anyone?
>>631338428this is my most anticipated game of the year
>>631338428where's the fucking marketing manI guess they figure they can do whatever they want since virtually everyone already knows about this game
>>631338428>Zelda is bigger than FF in JapanWhat a time to be alive.
>>631341216It's very likely that they'll show more during April for the lead-up to the release. Since Nintendo's marketing tactics is to focus on one of their exclusives(like Bayonetta Origins during these past few weeks) then move on to the next, TotK's marketing will start ramping up really soon.
How easy will this game be to emulate?
Underground chads we are getting good
cant fucking wait to shit up every zelda thread when this drops. Payback for how you tendie faggots have ruined any discussion of any open world game for years now.
>>631341802Both Yuzu and Ryujinx both run BOTW at shit speeds, this game will almost certainly be worse. Year or more
>>631338478https://arch.b4k.co/v/search/text/kids%20game/nintendo derangement syndrome must be one hell of a condition
>>631341802>>631341928cemu had a money tap to improve it, maybe the same will happen to the switch emulators
>>631341586Zelda is jap goyslop
>>631341802Doesn't BotW run pretty poorly on Switch emulators?
>>631341926>shits up every BotW thread for over 6 years>people ridicule him>"cant wait to shit up every zelda thread when this drops. Payback for how you tendie faggots mde fun of me!"You forgot to mention how you had genuine criticisms about BotW and wanted to discuss them in good faith but evil tendies didn't let you
There is no Aonuma's comment on that page
We already have a 12 hours old thread up, we cannot allow ourselves to spread thin
>>631342051The point of this thread was Aonuma's new comment about the game.>>631342053Before BotW, Zelda wasn't really popular in Japan.
>>631340752>Does this honestly come as a surprise to anyone?not really. XV being crap is killing hype for XVI and that is the only other big Japanese game with a confirmed 2023 date
>>631339167>a bunch of new shit they haven't shown yet for some reasonThey're obviously hiding some big surprise, but yeah, it's really weird, as though they think anybody is going to play the game completely blind once it comes out. For awhile I was thinking it was going some kind of 2 world system (obviously the entire game isn't just going to be the same map again), but after the last trailer I started thinking Hyrule is going to change over time, either breaking apart or being rearranged in some way (that's possibly what the sky islands are for, almost like ActRaiser).
>Zelda got the award and not FFXVIit's gonna be a bloodbath
>>631342629XVI is generic slop
I barely see any discussion about it online and no creators even talk about it. I still think it's going to be great but where is the advertising?
>>631338428>"Unknown Hyrule"?It's the same fucking shit
>>631342731Hello, Forspoken shill
>>631342370It's in the video at 1:02:44
>>631342798Post this in the other thread, we need more support there
>>631342798>sequel takes place in the same area as the first gamebros.....wtf......
>>631341617There's nothing to show. 4 new spells, 2 new enemy types, nuts 'n' bolts crafting and a handful of new story cutscenes.
>>631342629Did anyone expect FFXVI to get it over TotK?
>>631342798They are 100% holding back a TON so they don't spoil anything but its hurting them.
>>631343025Everybody knows this. Don't bother arguing with trolls.
>>631338428>japanese excited for japanese flagship game
>>631342819Forspoken is even more generic
>>631343025I don't think it's hurting them much. Preorders are through the roof and they keep getting "Most anticipated game of 2023" titles.They just need to actually deliver.
>>631342984I doubt it but it goes to show just how much has changed.The idea of a zelda game being much more anticipated than a final fantasy game was pretty much impossible, pre breath of the wild.
>>631343118Japs have an abhorrent taste in video games. Literally everyone else in Asia mogs them.
>>631342629Final Fantasy isn't as popular as it used to be, meanwhile Zelda's cultural influence has grown to the biggest its ever been.
>>631342918You niggers know you can have a sequel take place in a different fucking location right? Majora's Mask did it. Or you know, you could have some magical shit happen were the whole landscape rearranges itself since it's A FUCKING FANTASY GAME.
>>631343234Zelda has always been more popular than Final Fantasy
>>631343118Zelda wasn't a "japanese flagship game" before BotW. The series was much more popular in the west.And, again, it's about the new comment from Aonuma, than some inconsequencial award.
>>631343368Not in Japan it hasn't.
>>631343368Not in Japan.
I refuse to believe there are real people who like BOTW. It's more believable that it's all a giant psyop.
>>631343025>>631343075>t-they're just not showing the other map i-it'll be different i swearNeck yourself nigger
>>631343234People bitch about how BotW changed the formula and "betrayed the fans" (lol), but holy shit, mainline FF went off the rails years ago. After the garbage that was XV and now seeing what XVI looks like it's amazing it's amazing the series still has fans. It might as well just be a new IP; it looks about the same quality as all of SE's other recent new IPs.

Anyone notice that since ACfag stopped posting in these threads, they've just exploded in number? Are people really desperate to throw out bait?
>>631343654I find it hilarious how much they relied on him.
>>631341802They'll probably have some unique anti-emulation stuff so easy once those things are removed
>>631345654Blessed page 10 bump
>>631338428Why are zeldafags the only ones obsessed with these things? I don't see fortnitefags, minecraftfags or codfags like thisAlso i thought this shouldn't count because they voted FF16 too?
>>631342798>all those chasmsif you don't get revalis gale from the start or some other way to quickly ascend besides climbing this is going to be very annoying to explore
>>631345763Not only that but there were some moments where FF16 was the most expected game above TOTK, so totkfags are dishonests as fuck, same like when they say only Japan and digital count when it's convenient to themThat said FF16 is doing pretty well for being "exclusive" of a platform that barely any Japanese bought and risking too much with FF16I could see a more traditional FF17 notps5 exclusive doing even betterThat said only roasties care about these things
>>631340752On IGN, Spider-Man won
>>631347375I liked Spider-Man 1 but I'm not sure what there is to get hyped about. There's not much you can meaningfully change about it, you can't set it in another city and we already fought the Deadly Six. Where do you go from there? Two playable characters doesn't seem like enough. They could change the swinging, stealth and combat to have more depth to them but I doubt they'll do that. It'd require too much of a rework.
>>631345951Probably because TotK has a massive dedicated shitpost campaign against it from console warriors and discord raiders. Calling it a dead game that nobody cares about is harder to believe when the stats and facts paint the opposite picture.
>>631345951>That said FF16 is doing pretty well for being "exclusive" of a platform that barely any Japanese bought and risking too much with FF16There's Famitsu most anticipated rankings, and then there's COMG preorder numbers.The only thing potentially saving XVI (even if it's good) is the western market's "Sony cinematic game" audience.
why does this third worlder spend every day reading every single post in totk threads? genuinely astounding autism
>>631345763>>631345951Again, the point of this thread is Aonuma's message detailing more about the game.The Famitsu awards are what made him write this message and are the source.
>>631338428>new gameplay where players' freedom of imagination will change the game worldWith that Hylian fort in the place where the old park with the memory was in BotW I wonder if there's going to be a kingdom building minigame in Hyrule field.Like Ni no Kuni 2 or Dark Cloud 1/2.
>>631338478Video games are for children
>>631342629>>631342984>>631343257It's literally second place, shitposter kun
tears of the shitch
>>631349718There's a theory floating around saying that Hyrule will be completely devoid of life at the beginning as all its people disappeared and became souls just like in TP. We'll then need to deactivate the green spirals to make them appear again and possibly build camps.
>>631341802It'll probably be playable either Day1 or soon after release, but you'll need a modern CPU (Intel 12th gen or Ryzen 5000) for locked 30 FPS. At least based on how BotW runs.>>631342065Not really, it runs... fine: https://youtu.be/qyU6vYNDXkg?t=80 . The guy in this video tested with a 10400F (Ryzen 3600 equivalent), which is pretty shit by today's standards. Also I don't know how much memory speed affects emulators, but the RAM is garbo as well (2666MHz).The Wii U version runs way better AND supports mods, so there's no reason to play the Switch version on PC. That's why everyone suggests CEMU for BotW.
>>631350717CEMU hasn't had an update in a really long time, is it never being updated again?
>>631350453you wish the fatty from BOTW/TotK was as cool as the stud from OOT, tranny
>>631351289Wait that stats was for suicide attempts? I thought it was for successful suicides.
>>631342798The only "unknown" thing is the reason behind the price tag lol
>>631338428He's hyping up his DLC too much
>>631351495Hopefully the next trailer reveals the reason
>>631342629Only tendies care about awards though
>>631353546What will the cope be when the same shitty trailer as always?
>>631342918now that I think about it, nearly every single sequel I can think of takes place in a brand new area. Only one I can think of is Clear Sky and everyone hated it so they had to actually try for CoP.
>>631351495It's the only Switch game to use a 32GB cart. This isn't exactly a secret.
>>631357943think harder you don't even have to go outside the Zelda franchise Kamigami no Triforce 2
>>631357065BotW got it's big trailer 2 months before release
>>631342798why does it look worse than botw?
>>631361645Because it's not BotW. It's emulated, modded BotW.
>>631338428so the most anticipated game for 2023 is a copy paste titel.media will hype that shit way to much.again
There will be at least three sites that give it a 7/10 and people will shit their pants in rage, as is tradition. 8.8.
>>631361262Answer my question.
>>631362589You're a retard.
>>631340752There isn’t much else. Square Enix has been shit for years.
>>631338428>FamitsuNips will fellate themselves all day, the actual most anticipated game of the ear is Starfield.
>>631341802Not very. BotW is quite hard to emulate on the Switch emulators compared to CEMU. 2-3 months if you're on really good hardware, IMO.
>>631367370>the actual most anticipated game of the ear is Starfield.Nips probably haven't even heard about it
>>631338428kinda crazy to see Zelda being this popular in Japan, beating even fucking FF.
>>631367538I emulated Pokemon Scat and Vomit on day one, it won't be hard at all.
>>631350960the fuck? it literally got a release last weekhttps://github.com/cemu-project/Cemu/releases/tag/v2.0-29
>>631367907So did I, not every game is the same.
>>631338428>we have packed in even more new gameplay where players' freedom of imagination will change the game worldMay we see it?
>>631338428>more new gameplay where players' freedom of imagination will change the game worldI hope he's just leading with the shit people want to hear, because new content of the same type that BotW already had is literally the worst case scenario
>>631342065No, not really.
>>631349847yes but don't tell that to millennials
>>631342731Hi, famitsu sales thread poster!>>631343378Yes it was. Nintendo's biggest sellers are Mario, Zelda, AC, and Pokemon. It was always a pillar in Japan.
>>631340752*blocks your path*
>>631338428No zelda direct no preorder
>>631338478You're in every thread
>>631343025The baiting trolls you're replying to know that. They just want their (you)s and hopefully to annoy all reasonable, organic posters. They squat on these threads all day long trolling, hoping to rope in fresh (you)s.These specific ones are by far the most pathetic posters on the entire platform.
>>631351443Still really fucked though, that's probably the highest of any demographic ever
>>631341989ok disney adult
>>631370312As far as we can tell from leaks, dungeons seem to be back and you can craft a shit ton of cool things. That's all neat.
>>631349718Considering that you can build multiple vehicles, why not have settlement building as well? Considering they spent 6 years on this, who knows how far they went in that direction?
>>631372549All we know for certain is that there are interior areas with varied architecture, meaningless if they all end up as mechanically lame as the labyrinths or forgotten temple anyway
>>631351443Those numbers aren't accurate anyway. That's just a meme used to irritate/demoralize trannies.
How many more enemy types do you think they'll add? I saw recolored Bokoblin things and was so disappointed. Can't believe it's going to be the one Zelda I didn't buy day one release if at all
>>631373096There's like six new types from what we've seen so far>bigger fatter Bokoblins>the giant block golem>three-headed dragon on a bridge>flying frog-looking reptiles>Redeads >gorilla-looking Moblins from the artbookit's not much but it's still an improvement
>>631373359Art book also has several different creatures with big hinox-style eyes
>>631371637What little we've seen of Starfield so far looks a lot worse than what little we've seen of TotK, and BotW already shat all over Skyrim.
>>631371705Lol, everybody already preordered after the price leak.
>>631343239What other video games do non-Japanese Asian countries make besides Genshit?
Is there any reason to emulate the switch version of BotW over the wii u version?
>>631372783It was based of off thishttps://archive.vn/wJHBu
>>631374717No, Wii U emulation is better
>>631341802Probably fine if you have a good machine might take a couple months
>>631358730Actually there’s been several 32GB games like Witcher 3 and AOT 2.The actual size that we haven’t seen as a cart is 64GB.
>>631338428Pokemon SV was nominated for Game of the Year? What a joke. If they needed to have yet another Nintendo game as a nominee, they should have have Xenoblade 3, but the omission of that game is not as bad as the inclusion of Pokemon. Holy shit. That's like Cyberpunk 2077 getting nominated.
>>631375561Xeno3 won best RPG of 2023
>>631375561Wasn’t Xeno 3 nominated for GOTY last year?
>we will not have TOTK emulated on CEMU day 1it hurts
>>631341802>Game will leak a week beforeone month
