The Legend of Zelda-A World Divided by HeavyMetalHanzo The Legend of Zelda-A World Divided by HeavyMetalHanzo
This is a concept piece i did for Swedish gaming magazine LEVEL issue # 82.They recently wrote a big article about the future of the Legend of Zelda franchise.
The ideas was having one player be Link in the Dark world while the other uses the Wii U Gamepad as Zelda in the Light world,both puzzle solving and fighting they're way trough the game simultaneously.
Many thanks to their chief editor Tobias B. for contacting me and for using my Skyrule piece as the cover art.
Check out Level # 82.
Enjoy!

Nintendo

This is a cool gameplay concept. w00t!  Since Nintendo is planning to rebuild the franchise's gameplay from the ground up, your idea would definitely be a welcome suggestion.  Also, your execution of colors, lighting, expressions and design are reminiscent of the golden years of the Super NES and N64.:happybounce:   Plus, the pose that Link and Zelda take makes them look like they're looking boldly toward the future of their world, and serves as a representation of all the Legend of Zelda fans who are waiting to see how Nintendo will rebuild the franchise's gameplay style.  Keep up the good work!#1

I'd love to see the Wind Waker style evolve into something like this. As timeless as that style is I've sort of grown stagnant of it Skyward Sword took the "mature" style and did something fresh with it. Its time they do the same for Wind Waker style.

This is incredible man, its actually quite nice to see Zelda not seem so much like a damsil in distress from her dominant pose and expression. Everything unifies nicely :D

Beautiful piece, and the concept of the article is pretty interesting.

Have the developers recently said something about a possible coop mode for the next Zelda? I can't remember precisely... I'd love it, by the way.
Even just a spin-off multiplayer title similar to Four Sword Adventures would be great.

I think this is the most badass The Wind Waker style fanart I've seen! I really like your design for Zelda, I really do. The concept is really cool too – I'd love to control a Zelda that looked that awesome!

The game idea sounds cool, but I'd rather have it so that it was a kind of mirror-image thing where you could switch between link and zelda.... mostly because I don't have anyone who would play with me and I don't have a wii u....

Yes, I saw that magazine (I live in Sweden). But you made me hope that it was a real new game. :/
So a good job I guess. ^_^
