Nintendo has released some new screenshots for upcoming Zelda title Skyward Sword. And is it just us, or are things looking a little...altered?

The original screenshots released during E3 showed a game with bright blue skies and an even brighter green tunic on our hero. These screens, from what look like the same areas, are noticeably darker, not just in terms of lighting, but colour as well.

I hope it's just a quirk of the screens, and not some knee-jerk measure in response to fan's reaction of the game at E3. I thought it looked great!

Just make a cute Windwaker cell shaded style Zelda (that is much closer in substance to the best Zelda ever made: A Link to the Past) and I will be happy. Who cares about 'realistic' link?...unimaginative 12 year olds without a drop of creativity, thats who.

Those purple plumes of smoke that erupted when you killed a guard in Windwaker were so Disney and awesome, I yearn for more.
