I like it. The only thing I'm perplexed by is the article states the shadows make the game more realistic. Realism is not what Wind Wake was going for lol.

They took away the flatter more 2d cartoon look. That was the whole point of WW's artistic direction and appeal.

They're still experimenting with the art styles, mr. Aonuma himself said so.

They're under shade. What you like, TC, is probably that cel-shaded type of shading. It's still there according to the environment shots, but Link and Tetra aren't under sunlight in that screenshot. They also don't have shadows on the floor (again, because they aren't under direct light), but that again doesn't mean they won't have shadows once they step into the light either.

the perfection of the imperfection is true perfection :3

original link have a more cartoon like face that isn't perfect but is really like-able...


the new image remove the imperfections on link face and body and give you a smooth link that look like a toy rather than a cartoon :)

but remember it is just a "what about this look?_?" thing for nintendo and the final product can be totally different or the same...

Yeah looks uglier. Not bad, just worse than the original.
If you disagree with the views expressed in this post, feel free to put me on ignore.
