“Wii U launched at the end of last year, so I’d like to be able to talk soon about the new Zelda game we are preparing for you on Wii U. But since I have to wait until you can see actual game visuals to talk about it in detail, I will instead talk about the driving theme behind our development.
Our mission in developing this new Zelda game for Wii U is quite plainly to rethink the conventions of Zelda.
I’m referring to things such as the player is supposed to complete dungeons in a certain order. That you are supposed to play by yourself. The things that we’ve come to take for granted recently.
We want to set aside these “conventions,” get back to basics to create a newborn Zelda so players today can enjoy the real essence of the Franchise. We actually had worked on this kind of challenge with Skyward Sword, but we weren’t able to put efforts in changing the linear structure of the game.”
This sounds like it could be promising! I can’t wait for Zelda Wii U… or I would say that if there wasn’t that other Zelda news today!
Holy fuck yes
