    Who wants Online Multiplayer? I do!
    C'mon guys, this has never even been done in a Zelda game, except for Zelda Four Swords and Zelda Four Swords Adventures.

    EDIT: Sorry Madara, I didn't realise, I think this may be a glitche.

    How did you post the same thread twice in 4 minutes? That time interval looks too long to be considered a mistake.
    Merging threads. Edit the OP now.

    I know there is another 3DS Zelda game in the works, possibly Majora's Mask?

    Online multiplayer in a Zelda game would be interesting, but I'm not sure how they would pull it off. The Four Swords games were kind of arcade-y, don't know if they'd go down that road again, or include something like that as a mode in a normal Zelda title. Maybe if you had a set number of co-op players that were characters from the main game or something, working towards the same goal. Think Skyward Sword characters--Link, Zelda, Groose, Cawlin, a Goron, a Mogma, etc., etc. You could have a team of baddies if you wanted, too. Other than that, I don't know. It would have to be more capture the flag or quest related, I guess. Couldn't really be a standard deathmatch sort of thing.


    There have been Majora's Mask rumors floating around for a while. A British game site posted a listing for a 3DS Majora's Mask recently, then pulled it about twenty minutes later. Lew 3107 said the site is kind of goofy and makes mistakes all the time, but that would be sort of a weird mistake to make, don't you think? We'll see. I'd rather have a full HD remake on the Wii U, though.

    I think the only online interaction that The Legend of Zelda should have is Miiverse integration to ask people for help. Any competitive online multiplayer in a game like this would just be forced on, in my opinion. Things like team deathmatch, capture the flag,
    and free-for-all wouldn't really work in a game like this, and minigames wouldn't make the game any better.

    I think a slight variant of a capture the flag thing would work, but I agree with you overall. I said in my previous post that it would be interesting, but I don't know that Zelda needs stuff like that. But they could figure out some way to do it, if they wanted to.

    I've always thought of Zelda to be a single player game. They probably could make it online if they wanted to and I'm sure they're creative enough to do so, but I also don't think it needs it.

    Oh yeah, a load of people think it should. Online multiplayer has become a big thing now, and people have been asking for it in just about any game that it could potentially work in. When people sign on later I will get people disagreeing with me, for sure.

    Not me. I think the whole idea is ludicrous, and I could not see it fitting at all.

    Online multiplayer is something I would like to see if they find a meaningful way of implementing it that compliments the experience rather than being detrimental to it, although I imagine it would be a long time before we saw something like that, even assuming it's a possibility.

    Well, if you believe the rumor on the homepage, then the Zelda being released in 2014 won't have anything more than Miiverse integration. So it could be a pretty long time before Nintendo decide to do something like that.

    Hmm, yeah, that's sad. But does it have Co-op? I also know Dark Link is going to be in it! And at least we'll have some people to help us. Wait, why not have a online Multiplayer experience as well as online? Wouldn't that be cool?! Like, a server or something!

    On another Nintendo/Zelda site, I saw that Dark Link would be in the 2014 Zelda game, but it also said his role is currently unknown.

    If Dark Link does indeed appear in the new Zelda game, I hope he has a larger role in the story.

    Well, if the new rumor is true, we now know that the next Zelda will not have online multiplayer. But apparently there will be some sort of "online component" beyond Miiverse help. What the heck could that be?

    Since there are minigames in the dungeons, I could see people competing at racing on Loftwings or horses while shooting arrows and throwing bombs and boomerangs at one another, seeing who can get the best score on minesweeper, etc. Or games like in 4 Swords

    I don't know how I feel about multiplayer Zelda. I would be pretty disappointed if they came out with a new Zelda game that is only a multiplayer competition game. On the other hand, I think the new game will be too big to also include multiplayer games with it.

    Personally, I think I'd be happy without multiplayer Zelda at all, unless it is just a little minigame included in something like NintendoLand.

    I think that the only way it would work would be to make it a small multiplayer that has some link to the story,I don't mean a multiplayer that you have to complete to finish, but a game that emphasizes the unique story and features that the new game would bring. What do you guys think?

    Oh sorry, I've been busy. I can't remember the link but I do happen to remember some of the words: It is unknown what role Dark Link will serve in this game. That's all I remember.

    Maybe if it was a re-creation of a part of the game where a number of characters were striving towards a certain goal. Maybe something that is hinted at, but never revealed in the main narrative. I could see that working, yeah.

    I would only want a Multiplayer Zelda if it was a remake/sequel or "like" 4 swords. Other than that No. I like my Zelda Singleplayer, not every game needs a Multiplayer. Thats what Ruined Bioshock 2 and several other games..

    I can't see them releasing a multi-player Zelda game for the Wii-U. I'm surprised they did it for a handheld but I guess it worked out. Unfortunately I haven't played it . That said, if they do, I'm sure it would be excellent as it's not like Nintendo to ruin an IP with such a cruddy game (forget Mario Is Missing).
    Tired of same old music? Give these a try. More to come.

    I'll probably be blasted for this, but Paper Mario comes close for me. My son loves it, though.

    If they came out with a multi-player Zelda game, I'd probably be pretty ticked about it, but I'd probably end up still buying it.

    Well Zelda multi-player has been done and is likely to make a comeback. Zelda Online would be different though, sending messages via MiiVerse, and having some way to co-op bosses or waves of enemies would be AWESOME. But it probably wouldn't happen, but the sales on Zelda would spike so we'll never know.

    I wouldn’t mind exploring the world of Hyrule with a friend on Breath of the Wild. Then again, I am glad to have experienced it alone the way I did. Still, now that I have spent so many freaking hours on it and explored so much of the map, having a friend to roam the world with and show each other secrets you found would be pretty fun.

    If they ever do this, I'll buy a plane ticket to Kyoto just to go take a dump on their desks.

    I’d love a 2 player co op in BotW. But I do love that I experienced everything alone the first time around, so maybe the co op mode only unlocks after 150 hours of gameplay

    Yeah, right!
    150 is waaaaaaaaaaay too much.
    I beat the game in 55 hours and about 70 shrines.

    Just leave your Switch/WiiU on while you're working. Tada! 150 hours in no time.

    Edit: I never said what I thought about this. Multiplayer Breath of the Wild would be awesome. Multiplayer turned me heavily towards that new Pokemon game for the Switch as well.

    It sucks that Wolf Link despawns. It should be with you at all times, unless it dies.
