Transcript of Legend of Zelda

The Legend of Zelda was directed and designed by Shigeru Miyamoto and Takashi Tezuka. Miyamoto produced the game, and Tezuka wrote the story and script.

They were also designing the game Super Mario Bros. Their main objective for these two games was to make these two into complete opposites. Super Mario Bros. was to be made into a linear game that followed a strict progression, while The Legend of Zelda. Unlike Super Mario Bros., in this game you were set into an open world that made you make the decisions. You were in control of the world and you picked how you wanted to play, thinking about your next move. The Legend of Zelda is a iconic series that follows our emerald-clad hero, Link. The style, elements, and story may change, but the basis of the game stays the same. You go on a journey to save the fabled princess, Zelda, and have to defeat the great evil that has plagued the land. You explore dungeons, caves, and towns, meet gods and mystical creatures, and learn that the people you knew were not always who you thought they were. You meet new characters, both good and evil. You must fight against the odds to save the princess and the land. Miyamoto's Inspiration Zelda's name was actually inspired by the writer of The Great Gatsby's wife, Zelda Fitzgerald. Miyamoto thought the name was "pleasant and significant" so thats what he named her. The Legend of Zelda

2002 At the same time . . . The Main Character Link . . . Had his style actually influenced by famous disney character Peter Pan. That may be where the inspiration for Link's famous emerald attire. That would also explain why, like Peter Pan, Link battles his shadow. Another big similarity is that Link is often occompanied by a fairy who helps him immensely in his journey. Miyamoto drew his inspiration from his experiences as a child living in his town Kyoto. Normally he would explore nearby fields, woods, and caves. He wanted the players of Zelda to have the same feelings of wonder and exploration he felt as a child. He wanted them to experience all those wonderful feelings he once felt. Gameplay This game is a mix of action, adventure, RPGing, and puzzle gaming. The game is from an overhead perspective and moves along with him as he travels throughout the world. The game has a very large, complex, outdoor map with varied environments. The game itself is said to be one of the pioneers of the Role-Playing genre. Even though its often not consider to be part of the RPG genre because it lacks a few key elements such as experience points, a lot of it has features common with today’s RPGs. Many of the things about this game have been adopted by today’s modern RPGs. Link is meant to be a character that the players can identify with and look up to. He’s a coming of age motif for the players. Link starts his journey out as an ordinary boy but over time he gets stronger and is able to defeat the ultimate evil. The series itself has inspired many games consisting mainly the character Tingle. His games have been Freshly-Picked Tingle’s Rosy Rupeeland, Tingle’s Balloon Fight, Irozuki Tingle no Koi no Balloon Trip, Ripening Tingle's Balloon Trip of Love, and Dekisugi Tingle Pack. Link has changed from series to series. His facial expressions are iconic and are rarely lost and his legendary sword, hat, green tunic, and shield are always there. His appearance can differ but his character always stays really similar. The way he is drawn or played in the game may also change but he will always be our silent hero. The games have also influenced other huge games such the game Animal Crossing. The Music The music has played a major role in all games and is known today as the most recognizable gaming music. This series is one of the only ones that has carried their music through the years and incorporated them into all games. Cultural Influences Have Been . . . This game has influenced things from celebrities, wrestlers, films, and literature. One example is Cody Runnels, professional wrestler, says he replays A Link to the Past annually and his wrestling boots even feature the iconic triforce symbol. The games can have very complex backstories and you may have never even realized it. The game connect with each other in strange ways and there are always new secrets to be discovered. You learn something new about the series everytime you play it. Throughtout all the games there a huge thingd hidden, some hilarious, some great, and some terrifying. The games have taught us to check every little detail because you never know what could be hiding. By Katherine Cerda Sources: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legend_of_zelda
