After a two months break, the first episode of the second season of Zelda Unknown is finally here!
To start off with a bang, I have invited Dr. Wily to cover Hyrule Field, Epona and the possible return of Lon Lon Ranch in Zelda Wii U (including a short theory on the ranch itself).
PS: Closed captions will be added to all episodes of season 2 of Zelda Unknown.

+Commonwealth Realm What if you don't start the game off with Epona at first but rather have a chance at some customization by choosing and taming your horse from a group of wild horses you encounter early on? You could even name it whatever you want a la Twilight Princess?
the new zelda could also be placed even befor skyward sword. i mean look at it. link is not eaven wearing the tonik of the hero wich means that the hero do not even exist jet. he could also just not gain it jet but i do not think so because he have got the bow and arow an eaven epona. also the are many elektronik (or some thing like that) divices. you can see in Skyward sword that they also existed there but get lost.
I have a theory if this is placed after ocarina of time were link defeats ganon and link he married malon it could be possible that if malon is in the game they could most likely be family because they are decedents of the relation ship of oot link and malon
The bit of gameplay of Zelda WiiU I did see, what with Epona's increased AI, along with the fact that it was said that they're toning down the hand holding, makes me think that the game will play a lot like Shadow of the Colossus.
Now, I am become Hype, destroyer of patience.
Again, they're not "finding stuff." They're just discussing possibilities for different locations that could potentially appear. Unfortunately, its a bit too early to speculate too much, but we can potentially speculate on the locations that will appear, which could hint a bit on the setting, but we can't really know a lot about each individual location.
"For all we know, the game may have gone back to the drawing board, despite their claims of having stuff they could show."
This is incredibly unlikely.
What I meant to ask, was how are they still finding things to talk about?
And not that I think they have changed the map much, but 9 months is actually quite a lot of time in AAA game development. For all we know, the game may have gone back to the drawing board, despite their claims of having stuff they could show. Indefinite delays are rarely a good sign that things have been going smoothly.
They're not finding stuff. Its all speculation.
That said, its extremely doubtful the map has changed a lot. You can't just massively shift around a map of this size. That was a huge part of the development cycle. The map's design might've changed, but the layout? Sorry, not even 9 months is enough to change something like that so heavily.
Minor tweaks to specific sections of the map? Sure. Graphical improvements? Definitely!
But literally changing the entire thing? Its simply impossible and illogical. The world layout is an integral part of the game. At max it might get flipped like what has happened in past titles (TP Wii, OOT Master Quest), but its not likely to change too dramatically
But it's been 9 months. How can people keep finding stuff? And how do we know the game, let alone the map, hasn't radically changed in that time?
I'm just worried people are setting themselves up for massive disappointment.
+sugar1n I'm not convinced that horse Link is riding is Epona yet. Epona's appearance changes somewhat from game-to-game, but always is brown-ish red with a white mane. Unless this is a prototype design, I don't necessarily think this is Epona.
Now, in the Game Awards trailer last year, Miyamoto said the horse was Epona, but keep in mind, he doesn't work on Zelda anymore, that's down to Aonuma. Aonuma never said the horse was actually Epona.
Cool vid' CWR ! As always yes ! Everytime a pleasure to watch your work !
Recently I've got an idea for a sort of game, this game is
imagine some titles for ZU .
I give you mine and if you want to play that game too, give me yours ! =]
That was :
TLoZ : Hylia's Chronicles (or Hylia's Memories)
TLoZ : Towards Destiny (or Timeshift Hero but this one is too easy)
TLoZ : Sacred Realm Knights
TLoZ : Hooves of Pegazus
TLoZ : Wrath of Ancient Gods
Okay, strange idea, but what if Link Starts out in Lon Lon Ranch this time? A Central area with a plausible background for Link. He could easily be the descendant of The Hero of Time, and it would actually provide a way for Link to have a good relationship with Epona.
Nintendo cannot afford to support the Wii U any longer. Close to three years have passed since it release and it has barely sold 10 million units. That is abysmal even compared to the GameCube which was the worst selling home console in Nintendo's lengthy history.
Great video !!! Sincerely you've become my favourite youtuber, thank you for your time and talent, with Zelda unknown and the theories the wait for the game is not as difficult as it should be, greetings from Mexico!!! Keep going!!! The hype is still real!!!
If epona is the tru compenion in zelda wiiU it will mean that epona probely dies in the end of the game cose it is a common role in zelda games that youre compenion leaves you after youre quest is complete and what better wey to have her go out with her secrofising herself so that link survives to face the final boss. It will be a tutching moment and it is shure to make you as the player filled with rage and eger to sley whoever killed youre horce
i actually went over something recently, i posted the same thing a few months ago too (albeit less refined)
"Zelda Wii U/NX"
stop. It's a Wii U title, if i need to i'll go over all of the reasons that even if it was coming out on the NX (which is possibly even not a home console) it wouldn't be until late 2017 or early 2018 then i will.
they already said that the slow motion effect happens only when you vault off of the horse, in my mind that pretty much confirms that that's the only time that we'll see it
you spoke about getting the horse near the beginning of the game, there was a video analysis near e3 2014 which stated that the way that epona is trained to work with link implies that they've been together for a LONG time, it's highly likely that it'll do a "twilight princess" and we'll just have our horse from the very beginning
also ,i'd like to point out that epona's hair is all animated in real time, it's physics based. it's like the ribbons/strings of the moblin's spears in wind waker, it's really well done, around the time of skyward sword they told us that they weren't using mocap and that their animators were just that good, it's really impressive if they've captured both link's and epona's movements without human and horse motion capture this time around (which seems to be their preferred way of doing things)
it's worth noting that Aonuma specifically said that it's a traditional zelda world, he just said that it's seamless and much more vast this time, we'll likely get some horse-specific jumps or races or something but don't expect it to be too different to previous games
i doubt that lon lon ranch is present or we'd see it in the video (unless it moved south and we're actually standing in lon lon ranch in the video, which could make sense as the entrance to where we're standing is a path up a hill, it's even on the same side as lon lon ranch's entrance in oot.), i think it's far more likely that we'll just get ordon ranch if anything because it'll be more out-of the-way and there's not much hinting at a lon-lon ranch in this video
i wouldn't put much thought in to lon-lon ranch being a fortress in OoT, it looked like that because of system limitations, they wanted to make it an open ranch in the field but couldn't, the field alone made the n64 struggle, notice how the pop-in distance is a lot closer in hyrule field in oot? that too is because it couldn't handle having grass more than a few metres from link with the draw distance turned up so high. the reason that it has such high walls is because the n64 couldn't load the inside, it was too high a polycount to render simultaneously with the field. they were tricking you in the same way that majora's mask did with the stone tower temple being in the distance actually being a 2d image. Lore doesn't need to be applied to a system limitation
"thus we can assume that the inclusion of the ranch in the game will also mark the return of the characters malon and talon", don't assume that, if there was a lon lon ranch then it should visibly be right in front of us in the video, the only other place that could be lon lon ranch specifically is where we are standing and the herders here seem to be more eastern in character design. with the game's many large forested areas it'd make more sense to assume the inclusion of ordon ranch since there's less evidence against that point then there is evidence against lon lon ranch
adhering to your theory of this having lon lon ranch would mean that the game can't take place after skyward sword (which the world, technology, and design hint at) or after wind waker at some point (as the vegetation, plant species, artstyle, character design,, enemies, and world design hint at also). these are two of the most conmmonly speculated upon points, i wouldn't put down those valid points that have evidence because you're assuming something that has no eviidence
the desert in Zelda U is much bigger than even the desert in Twilight Princess, i can't see them making an area that vast and not giving it gerudo inhabitants unless it is filled with dungeons or ruins to explore, it's likely that they'll return (or at least be referenced)
+SuperNeonManGuy I think its likely Lon Lon Ranch could appear. That doesn't mean its a major part of the game, though.
I also think the Gerudo are very likely to appear as well.
In regards to Lon Lon Ranch appearing after Skyward Sword, though, do note that Lon Lon Ranch's first chronological appearance is Minish Cap. So its certainly not out of the realm of possibility. (I highly doubt the game actually does take place next chronologically after Skyward Sword, though.)
(a bit off topic sorry) I have to wonder, could the new Zelda possibly represent another timeline shift? in the gameplay trailer we see what appears to be a lookout tower similar to Win Walkers that you find on the great sea. Assuming those are of the same origin that means there are 2 possibilities, the first that under some strange circumstance the great sea was de-flooded (perhaps after the events of spirit tracks, when link is already on a new continent), or maybe a new hero arose after Gannon broke free and the gods didn't have to flood hyrule like they did in WW. I know its a hell of a stretch but its something
+Commonwealth realm yeah thats probably the most likely shot. I imagine the whole of the Zelda team is kinda annoyed that they were pressured by fans into making a canon timeline. like you said before it might just be a total reimagining of the series
jak zwykle świetny materiał :D oby tak dalej, ale brak oficjalnych newsów i przesunięcie daty tej zeldy na dalej niż 2016 mnie trochę martwi... (tak... usunęli Zeldę WiiU z oficjalnych premier 2016, i dali zamiast tego TBD, to be determined)
as always, great video :D keep it but, but lack of official news from Nintendo and the release date not being even 2016 makes me worried a bit :P
chyba każdemu na tym zależy (każdemu z fanów nintendo), ale chyba sam przyznasz, że nie wydanie tej gry na WiiU byłoby lekko mówiąc ciosem w plecy dla wszystkich posiadaczy tej właśnie konsoli.
Pozdrowienia również z mojej strony :)
+Maciej Podsiadło Zobaczymy, dla mnie zalezy na tym aby gra byla najlepsza w serii Zelda oraz zeby NX byl jak najwiekszym sukcesem dla Nintendo. TBD byla takze data premiery w kazdym raporcie po ogloszeniu opoznienia gry, wypowiedz Reggie na temat 2016 roku byly zwiazane z tegorocznym E3. Oprocz tego nie posiadamy zadnego potwierdzenia kieda gra zostanie wydana.
Też tak myślałem, że skoro 30 rocznica to chyba czegoś takiego nie odwalą, ale jednak data premiery została zmieniona z 2016 na TBD, czyli sam już nie wiem za bardzo o co chodzi, a brak newsów mnie po prostu dobija. Poza tym martwi mnie fakt, że ta Zelda może zostać wydana właśnie TYLKO na NX, a biedni posiadacze WiiU zostaną pokrzywdzeni :P. Nie obraziłbym się gdyby zrobili tak jak z Twilight Princess, wersja na WiiU z gamepladem i wersja na NX z lepszą grafiką (zapewne) i jakimś innym gameplayem do nowego kontrolera (jeśli takowy będzie). Jednak jeśli gra nie wyjdzie na WiiU to bardzo się zawiodę.
i'm just hoping that you get the call for epona at/around the same time. epona returns pretty soon in twilight princess, but you don't get the whistle until the lead up to the sky temple. that was a huge time to wait for something much more convenient than looking for a patch of "horse grass". :/
even if you didn't get her immediately i'd like the call first, like in OoT. give it another use, or tie it to the already useful musical instrument, which i'd kinda like to see make a proper return.
+zetsubou1v1 I hope we will have a whistle available from the beginning. It would be a pain in the neck to explore this massive world on foot without your horse. It might be the biggest seamless open-world map ever made.
Yes, more Commonwealth realm Zelda theories! I love these, they look into detail at every part of Zelda and make every aspect feel like they're gonna be astonishingly amazing, as if each section were the main focus of the game. That said, Nintendo basically does make every section of their games their main focus of their games, that's why so many of their games are just so great. Man, I'm excited. Now if only they'd do another Nintendo Direct. It's been ages
Why Nintendo will not give us nothing on this game are they trying to kill it ? Plz tell we will see something hopefully this trailer may not mean anything because they may be revamping that ur opinions?
+Durand Lewis Because they want to be 100 percent sure that the game will be as good as it possibly can be and ready before they show it again. My guess is that this game will take a Fallout 4 at next year's E3: Announcement that it will be a dual release or an NX launch exclusive, followed by a 15 minutes or longer gameplay demo, tons of concept arts, commentaries by Eiji Aonuma and Shigeru Miyamoto on the development and finally a holiday 2016 release date announcement.
In term of changes and revamps:
They might improve the graphics (though in my opinion they are superb even compared to games such as the Witcher 3) and add more content and perhaps even dungeons and side-quests to the game. Majora's Mask 3D's success could also cause more elements to be brought back from that game and implemented in Zelda Wii U: a variety of lengthy multi-stage side-quests, NPCs that feel alive and realistic, time manipulation and include a 24 hour real time day and night cyclet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rh00rTykob8.
+H LO Season two will not only be about provinces, as I have almost drained them all at this point, but also discuss how central game elements could impact the game. And thank you for the continuous support!
I just want to feed Epona apples and have memorable interaction with her. Of course that makes it more soul crushing if the devs decide to do something like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SclbRYmGG9A (Agro doesn't actually die, but it still hurt so bad)
I have to just ask this could there be a possibility that it is kid link grown up after both events of ocarina of time and Majoras mask after since saying he isn't wearing the green outfit and since he never got to be the hero of hyrule and he's going on his own adventure maybe?
+ECHO1live GAMING I've heard this statement cited several times. Unfortunately, everyone who says that Zelda U's Link is a new Link provides zero sources, and I haven't found any, either. I think it was a baseless rumor.
And personally, I think you were right in the first place. The map we see looks like an updated Ocarina of Time map, with additional areas added outside of the regions explorable in Ocarina of Time. Its also got the Great Bridge of Hylia, but the Bridge looks newer, almost as if it was recently built.
If someone can find the source that reveals specifically Zelda U's Link is a "new Link" I'd sure love to see it, because I haven't found anything of the sort. The closest is Aonuma saying "I never said it was Link" at E3 2014, and later admitted it was (but he didn't say it was a "new" Link).
+Commonwealth realm What exactly does that signify to you? Because I thought that it helped my theory, because if there is the ocarina map, Twi- princess map (where they could have slightly moved or expanded Hyrule after Ocarina) and the original LoZ, then it shows that it would fall in the same timeline split as Twi- princess, because there's the kingdom from that game, but also scientifically, the map from the original would be formed naturally. A game after Twi- princess would after all be parallel to the original, although in a different timeline.
+Quin Skew The map is a fusion of LOZ (east), Ocarina of Time (centre and north) and Twilight Princess (west). If you place the maps and compare those specific instalments to Zelda Wii U's map, you will see the pattern.
The PC community has grown a good deal in a really limited time frame and there isnt any reason to believe the game wont be equally as addicting for Xbox players. The site states its something PUBG Corp wants to add down the road, perhaps as soon as the game is finished, as shown by a Microsoft representative.

The Honest to Goodness Truth on Pubg Warrior Pack
Nevertheless, its always tough to locate a trustworthy seller of a Black Desert account on account of the risk involved in these sorts of transactions. Bring on such a desert map! We guess because its about becoming the lone survivor, even if theres a lot of teamwork on the way.
The game will probably remain in early access for some moment. It continues to attract new players that are hoping to get that sweet, sweet chicken dinner. This usually means youre have to begin downloading the game at midnight, and after that begin playing once PUBG is installed. There isnt just one play through of Black Desert that ends up the same because its up to the player to determine the method by which they level. Because of this, players will need to use the Xbox Game Preview program to be able to play the game. Xbox One players might have to wait somewhat longer for the full-release edition. They will also be able to purchase some exclusive content in the form of special cosmetic packs.
