When Shigeru Miyamoto showed off the Zelda Wii artwork of Link at E3, the style of that image alone led many to believe that the next Zelda adventure would possess realistic graphics similar to that of Ocarina of Time. However, when all is said and done, it’s possible that the game could sport an entirely new look all together.

In the latest edition of the Official Nintendo Magazine, Eiji Aonuma spoke about Zelda Wii. One of the more significant things he said is that the development team has yet to decide on the game’s graphics. According to Aonuma, while he hinted at them being realistic, he noted that Zelda Wii could have a new style that we haven’t seen in the series up to this point.

Nintendo filed for the trademark on October 30, 2009 and the listing was discovered in the Japanese trademark database recently. The question is, will anything come of it?

Lack of Wii achievements

– Craig’s editorial is “Wii Need Achievements”
– Craig says the first contribution to this generation was the Wiimote, then the achievement system
– Get everything recognized with achievements in one account
– If the Wii had an achievement system, Daemon admits he’d play it more
– Achievements add an extra incentive to play games
– Downside to the achievement system is that some of them are dumb, encouraged to do dumb things
– Achievements can sometimes entice people to play games they would usually not play
– Disney has something like an achievement system, Jack says if Disney can do it, Nintendo should be able to
– Many Wii games have individual achievements (example: Wii Sports Resort stamps, which is a good start)
– Some Wii fans are against the idea of achievements
