Following the release of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, its developers have shared interesting statements about the game. Here we get more focused on the new format that the series has acquired.
Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
The message you have below includes declarations of Eiji Aonuma, producer of the franchise, on whether Breath of the Wild laid the new foundation for the franchise and the rest of the games will always be like that. When asked about this in a recent meeting with Game Informer, Aonuma responded like this:
With Ocarina of Time, I think it’s fair to say that it created a format for various titles in the franchise that came after it. But in a way, that was a bit restrictive for us. While our goal is always to give the player certain liberties, there were certain things that the format didn’t really allow people to be free of. Of course, the series continued to evolve after Ocarina of Time, but I think it’s also fair to say now that we’ve arrived at Breath of the Wild and the new kind of gameplay that’s more open and free. Yes, I think it’s fair to say that you’ve created a new type of format from which the series has come.
But we make sure that the Zelda style or the Zelda feel is really in the game. I think that is a very important point. Even if a game like Breath of the Wild has really big changes, as long as fans and players can feel like this is a Zelda game at its core when they play it, that’s really important to us in meeting expectations. of the fans
