2D Legend Of Zelda

Legend Of Zelda is one of the most popular franchises for Nintendo. With the upcoming Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild for Nintendo Switch, we might not be seeing any 2D Legend Of Zelda games. But according to Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma, there is a possibility for a 2D Zelda game on Nintendo Switch.

In an interview with GameInformer, Eiji Aonuma was asked if Nintendo considered merging Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild dev team with the development team that handles the 2D Legend Of Zelda for 3DS. He responded that even if they did it would not have been a good decision.

The dev pace is not really dependent on how many people are on a team, so combining them would not necessarily expedite the development pace. The 3DS team and the Wii U team have different approaches to game development, so I don’t necessarily want to combine them and have them think together, but rather have each think about what they can bring to Nintendo Switch from their own perspective.

Then he was asked if the 3DS Zelda development team were working on a new game for Nintendo Switch. To this he responded that “Yes, there is definitely a possibility”.

There are definitely good things about the 2D world and the playstyles of the 2D world. There are a lot of fans who enjoy that style. This Nintendo Switch style, which is the evolved style of gameplay is not necessarily… I want you to think of it more as an evolved style of 2D style. For the 3DS team, I am trying to make them think in a more evolved 2D-style approach.

It would be interesting to see a 2D Legend Of Zelda game on Nintendo Switch but for now, we are looking forward to Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild.

Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild will launch on March 3, 2017, for Nintendo Switch and Wii U.
