Eiji Aonuma questions Zelda's traditions

Eiji Aonuma questions Zelda's traditions

"Zelda games have been rather linear"

Quote:
A lot has been made of how A Link Between Worlds shakes up Zelda's traditional formula, but it seems to have shaken up how series producer Eiji Aonuma looks at that formula as a whole too. In a making-of interview with ONM (in issue 105), the legend behind Zelda revealed that changing how this game works has had a profound effect on how he thinks about the series.

"The recent Zelda games have been rather linear," he explained, "as I thought players didn't like getting lost, wondering what to do, or where to go. However, I've come to question this 'traditional' approach as I felt that we couldn't gain the sense of wonder that existed in the original Legend of Zelda, in which you made unexpected encounters and where what used to be impossible would suddenly become possible."
Given that his team are likely tunic-deep in the making of the next Zelda game for Wii U, we can only imagine what effect that's having on the his next project - but it's pretty clear that he's not afraid to mess with our expectations: "We will, of course, continue to question and reconsider the approaches we have taken in the past without any reservations."

It's nice to see him trying to change things up for the series. Can't wait for the next game(though I still need to catch up on Skyward Sword)

Yeah. As long as they stray away from that type of stuff I'm down.

I hope this means loads more sidequests. I'm thinking Elder Scrolls-level here.

Better side quests rather than more. Did anyone find herding cattle in TP fun?
