Over the past few years, there has been a long running debate amongst Zelda fans. There are some who argue that the series needs to receive major changes, while others believe that Zelda games should pretty much follow the same formula. This is something which was brought up in an in interview in the latest edition of Nintendo Power. Shigeru Miyamoto addressed how different Zelda Wii will be compared to previous titles in the franchise. Miyamoto said, “I don’t think it’s going to be that radically different. So, it looks like some fans will have to wait until the next Zelda title releases before any big changes are made. We’ll be posting more tidbits from the interview over the coming days.

This quote comes from a Nintendo Channel E3 interview with Tom Hulett, producer on Silent Hill: Shattered Memories…

“Nothing’s been removed from the game to fit into a rating. It’s Silent Hill, it’s a scary franchise, it’s supposed to scare you. I know there are certain things you expect from a Silent Hill title. This game has all of that. We’re big fans. We expect the same thing, so we’ve worked hard to put it all into this game.”

A lot of developers are remaining true to their visions, even when it comes to creating mature titles for Wii. Just because it’s on a slightly more casual system doesn’t mean the team will be holding back.

– The town gate, where you choose a server based on what level of experience you are and what it is you want to do (for example, recruit people for a quest). The gate’s also home to Loklak’s information desk, helpfully telling you about special shop sales and special limited-time events.
– The main square, where you trade items, buy tools/materials, and combine purchased or found materials together to make new things. There’s also an “interior workshop,” an outdoor stand that creates furniture for your guest house (more on that below) if you bring the owner the right items.
– The tavern, where you pick up quests and eat food to power up your hunter before hitting the road. The bar’s also home to the town colosseum, where tournaments are occasionally held.
– The lodging row, where the guest houses are. The size of your guest house depends entirely on your hunter’s rank; the better you get, the more luxurious it becomes. You can also invite friends to your place to hang out if you like.
– The workshop, where you buy and upgrade/modify your weapons.
