The Legend of Zelda


 

Breath of the Wild‘s huge open world may be the new baseline for Legend of Zelda games, according to series producer Eiji Aonuma.

Speaking in an interview with Famitsu (via Polygon), Aonuma hinted that Breath of the Wild‘s setup could be a new “standard” for the series.

“I think that, in the future, open air games will be the standard for Zelda,” Aonuma said.

Aonuma also spoke of other ways the series has evolved, commenting that Ganon appeared more as a conceptual threat than an actual “character” so as to not get in the way of Breath of the Wild‘s non-linear story. He didn’t say whether the villain role will remain so ambiguous in future titles, however.

At last report, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was breaking all of Nintendo’s sales records.
