The Legend of Zelda Wii U producer Eiji Aonuma says fans of the series should “expect something new” with the new game.
In an interview with Famitsu, which was translated by Kotaku
, Aonuma revealed that development of the latest Legend of Zelda
is “progressing well” and that his team has been kept very “busy”. He specifically stated:
“The game has really taken shape, and things have gotten easier. That means things are progressing well.
I think the base of our secret sauce has always been Ocarina of Time, but this time, the change in flavor will be like going from Japanese food to Western style food.
Perhaps, players will be surprised. Please look forward to it, because I think we’ll be able to make ‘something new’ like Ocarina of Time was.”
We have to bring special attention to the metaphor Aonuma used. Let us know in the comments below what comes to mind when he says change in gameplay from Ocarina of Time
to Zelda Wii U
will be like going “from Japanese food to Western style food.” Will it play more like a Western RPG?
Nintendo expects to release The Legend of Zelda Wii U
sometime in late 2016, and there are rumors that the game could skip the Wii U and launch exclusively on the Nintendo NX or on both consoles simultaneously.
We can’t wait to see what it has in store for us.
