Expect Surprises For The Next Zelda Title, Says Eiji Aonuma
Legend of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild is the latest and quite successful entry in the long-running Legend Of Zelda franchise. The game re-innovated the franchise with its beautiful open-world and addictive gameplay mechanics. While Breath Of The Wild released just a couple of months ago, and Zelda creator has promised surprises for the next Zelda title.
Speaking with Nikkei, Zelda creator Eiji Aonuma talked about the franchise’s future saying that Zelda is a big franchise which makes it difficult to make reforms according to the fans request. He added that the reform results in surprises for the fans. He added that while it is not easy to be able to answer everyone’s expectations but promised that the next Zelda title will have surprises for fans.
First of all I think the point that ‘this is a Zelda’ is big. It’s a series that has been continuing for a long time, if I am to put it in words then perhaps everyone would have thought it’s not that simple to do a ‘reform’.
Furthermore, that reform causes a ‘surprise’ to all our users who have played Zelda until now, since it exceeds their imaginations by a bit, and I think perhaps that’s why they, including the media, have welcomed it with the ‘zeal’.
It’s not an easy thing to be able to answer expectations of all our users, but through this game, I recognised again that the significance of continuing to create the series is right there, so in the future I’d like to repeat doing “great fusses*” and provide ‘surprises’ that exceed everyone’s expectations.
Legend Of Zelda series has a very interesting player base, and with Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild, players are challenging themselves with self-imposed tasks. Just recently, one player defeated two of the hardest bosses without taking any damage in Legend Of Zelda Breath Of the Wild.
