Idea for Zelda 3DS 2

((Because I want people to be able to see updated ideas))

Hundreds of Years have passed since Spirit Tracks. We move on to the next type of technology. Not bi-planes, but instead submarines.

Cue epic Zelda trailer music.

Waters flood Hyrule again after Link kills Ganon. Master Sword disappears with Ganon's head. Pan-zoom to a nearby submarine. Link and other people are in it. The group is in an ancient ruin underwater that's covered in moss, algae etc.

Cue passing a lot of familiar places under water. Someone notices a sword in a pedestal, it looks valuable so they naturally send Link out to get it. Que Link wearing Zora Tunic/Armor. He swims out and inspects the sword. It has a golden hilt and a blade that shines with light. Link grabs the sword and it pulls out of the Pedestal slowly, leaving behind a glow. Link holds the sword in his left hand, and grabs his forehead with his right, he must have a headache of some sort. Link splits into four copies. Then some kind of evil surges out of the pedestal in a shadowy form. and roars at Link.

End Trailer.

Now. The game would not take place entirely underwater. There would be an open world on land, ocean, etc.

On Land
In the land parts of the game Link would be able to ride a horse, or he could take a train for fast travel. For those of you who don't know what fast travel is, its travel where you just go through a loading screen and you get to your next destination. When walking/riding a horse you would be able to explore hidden grottos, caves, towns villages that don't have a train connected to them. You could invest rupees into making train track to a village. Could also get magical warps to locations.

The Ocean
You could take boats in cities as fast travel to other known islands/land masses.
You could also have your own little boat that you can use to explore the ocean independently. You could find secret islands with more secret places on them or villages without a ship route. You could also invest rupees into ship routes for these places. Could also get magical warps to certain locations

Under Water
When under water you could explore stuff, find treasure, find under water races, find secret water caves to explore etc. This would probably be the only thing without a fast travel option at the beginning of the game. Later on you could probably get some magical warps for it.

In single player, it would be just you. You would have the little magical panels for making copies of yourself. Like MC.

In Co-Op there would always be the number of Links depending on how many people are playing. You would also be able to split up in towns, dungeons, etc. The only problem I see with this is people wanting to split up on the land mass.

didn't we already have a topic for this exact idea? I definitely saw it earlier today.

I thought this was gonna be another modern day Zelda or something to that effect, but was pleasantly surprised.
I can't say I'm fond of the story idea, but a Zelda that's on the scale of Wind Waker but with underwater segments too would be pretty cool, I always loved underwater segments of Zelda games.

I remade it so it would be easier for people to see updates to the idea.

That sounds like a console Zelda game. A 3DS cart would not hold enough space for all that.

fair enough, not like the old one was that long, or buried that deep in the 3ds boards though...

Thats also a worry..The online would be better on console anyways. But everyone on the Zelda WII U board is an elitist pretty much.
