The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild continues to be a huge hit for Nintendo, in part due to its fresh take on the storied franchise. Fans better get used to this feel if a recent interview is any indication. Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma recently discussed the future of the franchise with Famitsu, and although the publication won’t release until tomorrow, early translations have made their way to the internet.
In response to a question about future
Zelda games would be like, Aonuma stated that he believes the “open air” concept will become the new standard for future Zelda titles:
Famitsu: Making the next Zelda game might be more difficult if you choose to make it an open-air game. What will evolve open-air? How will you make future dungeons? What will the next Zelda title be like?
Aonuma: I think that, in the future, open air games will be the standard for Zelda.
Personally, I’m not sure I’m as sold on the concept as Aonuma is, though it’s certainly hard to argue with success. What do you think about
Breath of the Wild being the standard for the Zelda franchise? What would you like to see change going forward?
