The last trailer left me relatively cold while watching it during the direct. Therefore, I understand the sentiment of the thread title.
But Nintendo only really has a problem, if a lot of people who are not satisfied with their marketing now, loose interest in TOTK completely and do not watch subsequent trailers/reviews. I would argue that that’s not the case for most. So, they still have time to convince people.
I don’t have to be convinced. BotW is my favorite game of all time. I am sure, I will have a good time with TOTK, even if my biggest fear right now would turn out to be true. That would be focusing too much on the YouTube crowd who made a lot of funny videos about combining abilities and items to do awesome stuff. I liked watching these, but my own playthrough of BotW was mostly about exploration, enjoying the calmness and nature of Hyrule as well as puzzle solving.
I am sure this is all still in there, but the main focus might be shifted to other things.
Interestingly, after the direct I started watching the trailer analyses and that excited me a lot. Not much is confirmed but the implications are promising. I kind of get the frustration about the lack of concrete answers but personally I also would dislike getting every detail spelled out in advance. I want surprises while playing the game.
Now for example caves could be just some boring tunnels and some mining sites (that one in the trailer didn’t look that interesting to me), but since there are underground sections implemented, it is also a possibility that there are ice caves, subterranean lakes, lava rivers, tombs and catacombs, sunken cities with traces of ancient civilizations, moss overgrown underground woods, mushroom caves full of bioluminescent funghi, and so on…
These possibilities excite me and cause I am buying the game anyway, I just hope to be pleasantly surprised.
Other people want to know for sure what they are getting and might need another trailer showing these underground areas in detail and that’s fine. I hope Nintendo doesn’t overdo it or maybe waits for that until the launch trailer (which would be easy to ignore for me and still be early enough for people buying the game at launch). Or people just wait for reviews.
So in the end, I don’t think it is a big deal that the marketing until now wasn’t convincing for everyone yet.
