Skyward Sword’s Director Hidemaro Fujibayashi is Working on Zelda: Breath of the Wild
During a special E3 2016 livestream event, Nintendo showcased quite an extensive gameplay footage of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
During the gameplay footage, we saw a whole lot of gameplay mechanics and features. However, Nintendo has also stated that whatever we saw during the gameplay demo did not even make about 1 per cent of the game and there is a lot that remains to be seen.
Now Nintendo has confirmed that Hidemaro Fujibayashi, the Game Director who worked on 2011’s The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for Nintendo Wii is also working on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. In addition to this, Fujibayashi also worked on 2004’s The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap.
Since Fujibayashi’s games are known for livelier environments, expressive characters, and deep lore, we can surely expect great things from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
In relevant Breath of the Wild news, game director Eiji Aonuma has provided an explanation of why the studio did not include a Female Link in the game as it goes against the balance in the TriForce. To read up more, head over to the post!
While Nintendo has yet to announce a finalized release date, we can expect The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sometime during 2017 for Nintendo NX and Nintendo Wii U.
