    Legend of Zelda MMO?

    Fellow Game Nerds,

Although all other Nintendo games have a console listed along with the rating, this particular title does not. This could very well mean that everyone's favorite adventurer will appear in an MMORPG.

    The official website for the Legend of Zelda games is called Zelda Universe, but the Entertainment Software Rating Board is not in the habit of handing out ratings to online content unless that content is also a game. Perhaps this is one of the big announcements Nintendo will reveal in its presentation at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in less than 12 days.

    I would enjoy this very much ... as long as group dungeons don't require me to make dinosaurs eat bombs.

    I love Zelda games so much...but I really don't see how they could make it into an mmo. I seriously hope they do a good job.
    WoW having more subs than SWTOR is the same thing as Justin Bieber having more youtube plays than Tupac. Just because its more popular doesn't mean its good.
    Warcraft Lore has gone from one of the most vast and interesting stories in all of gaming to a bad Thrall Fanfic by Chris Metzen.

    would need more active combat than regular wow-style mmo's, I could hardly imagine a zelda where ganon just stands still, hitting a plated link, with 15 other links standing behind him poking him with their master swords

    This is my feelings about it too. I just can't imagine it happening, If it does though... goodbye life.

    It could be more of an instant action kind of game ala DotA/LoL/LOCO..

    if it's an mmo as in you are am hyrulian and got to kill dekus standing in place and getting out fo the fire spamming 1 2 and 3... It is gonna be the most awful zelda game ever
    Yes, I am an Horde fanboy
    Yes, I am an Alliance fanboy
    No, I'm not gonna miss 50% of the game for some stupid ridiculous faction fight

    More material can never be worse than none at all, however what exactly would be the foundation of the game? Would we just be spoonfed with the "legends" of previous games? Would we all be hylians? What evil would there be? What role would the triforce play?

    It's frankly quite hard to imagine a Zelda MMO that has enough substance to work as a competitive/raiding MMO, instead of a story-driven singleplayer game.

    No. You wont be able to jump.

    And the Zelda universe(s) can't support a MMO.

    i think the main problem ppl have is that a mmo most of the time has two diff playable factions, so how will they work this out? else, ignoring that point, i could see it work, if you not try to expect to be playing as Link himself

    If they happen to do this online it should be a hack and slash with a huge world map with a leveling system.

    I can picture an online link to the past or OoT and it would be awesome but I honestly feel it wouldn't be the same.
    Link isn't a healer nor Zelda so you would be silly tarded "humans" and the other races out there so it wouldn't be the same.

    Thinking about it though, wouldn't it be awesome having zelda style dungeons and boss fights DUN DUN DUN DUNNNNNNNNNNN

    Please no leveling system.
    Just make it one giant online adventure game, without any grinds, runs, levels, gold, trades, etc.
    Just a FUN game.

    It has already been confirmed that its not for an MMO its just for there website that might end up having some mini flash games on it. An article is on kotaku about it.

    If this really turns out to be a Zelda MMO, I will be very excited. However, I am also very hopeful they don't decide on Wind Waker graphics here, and something closer to Ocarina of Time/Majora's Mask/Twilight Princess/Skyward Sword (to a lesser extent). Also, I hope there's a good variety of races. I'd definitely play Zora.
