What I find interesting is that the art style also largely matches what's in the DX version photographs, it's only the opening movie that it directly contradicts.
May those who accept their fate be granted happiness;
Those who defy it, glory!

I suspect that players in Japan vs the US/Europe were primed differently. All the territories shared the actual core official art (the stuff from the manual, etc). But it was accompanied with very different supporting art, including a bunch of Japan-only chibi stuff and a bunch of realistic stuff that was mostly used outside of Japan. For example:
Japan-only art used in guides, magazines, and ads:
The Katsuya Terada artwork that was used in American and European game guides:
Side note: I really miss Terada doing artwork for Zelda guides (though making Marin blonde was heresy). And damn, the German LA player's guide has a lot of unique art never seen anywhere else. I would love to get my hands on a copy of that thing.

I doubt the Capcom Zeldas will be remade, they seem to get ignored. Feels like their absence in Hyrule Warriors was one of the signs, they don't tend to be referenced like the other games, do they? I wouldn't mind OoA remade though, but a new game would be the best.
