GoNintendo 'End of Day' thought - Nintendo Land: Zelda Battle Quest direct-feed footage

Thanks to Poopaloop for the image!


I'm so, so happy that my capture unit worked. It went pretty flawlessly the entire time! The only issues came up with my own hiccups while learning software. Please enjoy the first of many, many videos to come! See you in a few, short hours.

Awhile back, I promised that I was going to bring GoNintendo up-to-date as far as video quality goes. I wanted to make sure I had the best I could get for the Wii U. That meant a new webcam, camcorder and capture unit. While I don't have a ton of cash, I used what I had to piece together hardware that would get the job done. You guys are worth it! With Nintendo going HD on Wii U, it was time I did as well!

You already know I went HD on the webcam and camcorder. Today I get to show you the direct-feed HD side of the Wii U! I am ridiculously happy with how easy capturing footage was, as well as how great the final product looks. Our debut direct-feed, 1080p footage comes from the Zelda Battle Quest attraction in Nintendo Land.

You'll be checking out the second half of the third quest in Zelda Battle Quest. Why is each clip only 30 seconds? That's part of the guidelines I have to follow, as per Nintendo's request. I hope you enjoy getting a closer look at this attraction!

I've removed some of the clips in order to clear something with Nintendo first. I originally had 8 clips that showed a portion of the quest in sequential order. I want to double check that a sequential video series is okay, as long as each clip is 30 seconds. Until I hear back, please enjoy 3 selections from the planned series.



This Wii U and Nintendo Land were provided by Nintendo for coverage and review purposes.

@jasonmaivia Agreed.

I imagine that like with the '301 Views' glitch, such a system overhaul that both would need isn't seen as a necessity by TPTB, though.

Isn't it kind of cheating the 30 second rule if the clips are all sequential? =o

This is exactly what the accompanying document says:

- OK capture up to 10 minutes of game footage
- Individual video clips may not be longer than 30 seconds each


There have been some other games in the past where the guidelines specifically stated that the clips could not be sequential. This was not mentioned in the document anywhere. I read it over and over about 20 times just to make sure!

Isn't the 10 minutes of game footage a running total of each individual game?

And I demand Metroid Blast next.

The 10 minutes of game footage is for ALL of Nintendo Land, not each individual attraction. I know this because the document gives the same 10 minute rule for all other Wii U games that were sent by Nintendo to the press. In other words, 4 of my 10 minutes are gone.

Metroid Blast is indeed next.

I doubt you were planning to have footage of all Nintendo Land games anyway. But what do I know?

@Chosenoneknuckles

That isn't a glitch! It's the system "freezing" the counter to check if these views are legit or not.

I love the little detail with clothes tearing apart. That's the purpose of HD graphics and powerful consoles. Little details like that. I hope we see stuff like that on the real Zelda game.

Are you allowed to post (a photo or something of) that document?
It just seems like it'd be really interesting to see all the limits and what not they have set up.

Then again, if it says "you cannot talk about X" then there'd be no showing that either I guess >_<

Nicely done, RMC! It looks gorgeous! And it spells good things for the full-blown LoZ :D! Also, I was wondering, are you also reviewing Ninja Gaiden III any time this week? I'm not even sure if you got it as part of the Wii U package but again, just wondering...

Seems like NintendoLand really is a gorgeous game. I must admit, I was very dissapointed when I saw it at E3. After a time, it got mildly interesting, and at this point, I'm looking forward to it very much indeed. :)

Oh, and of course, thank you Kindly, RMC, for your hard work on all this. Seeing you grabbing the Triforce is epic beyond belifes. Belives? Damn word..

Seems dull gameplay wise, but it has nice visuals.

I know others are already asking but what capture device are you using for such nice footage... And is it over HDMI... If so is there any DRM stuff that frustrates your attempts... Or... Is it a legit device from Nintendo themselves?

RMC, I'm curious if Nintendoland has a opening video or not. If there is such a video, would you mind capturing that? It's a unusual request, but it's something I'm curious about. If not that, then maybe some Ninja Gaiden or Captain Falcon's Wild Ride.

RMC you just got the Triforce! Make a wish! Also, what are the rupees for?

Should Nintendo really give away the Triforce for finishing an attraction? I hope no one makes a Ganon Mii...

The clothes tearing thing HOPEFULLY means they're thinking about Link taking visible damage as his hearts decrease in a proper Zelda! I'd LOVE THAT! Been wanting it from Zelda for a long time!

It would certainly help create a vibe that I can take seriously again. <3

My hopes are up for this because Miyamoto has said that the Metroid minigame uses some ideas they were building for a new Metroid game. Woo!
