It’s hard to believe that picture is still all we’ve seen of the next big Zelda game. Eijii Aonuma, the director of the Zelda series, has revealed a few snippets of information about the already eagerly anticipated game.
Speaking in a interview earlier today, Mr. Aonuma had this to say:
“We’re taking advantage of MotionPlus. It’s become very natural – the movement of your arms is precisely reflected in the gameplay. Thanks to the technological advancements, we hope the gameplay can be more accessible to people.
“We’re making efforts regarding the total flow of the Zelda game. So far, the basic flow of the Zelda games is you’re exploring a field, you go to a dungeon, you conquer it and return to the field. We’re looking at altering that traditional flow. That’s all I can say.
“You will have to wait until next year when we can elaborate on this and many other things. But what I can tell you is that yes I have read some of the speculation, and some of it is right! That is all I can say at the moment.”
Eee, Nintendo can be such a tease! We by and large knew all this already, it really seems we’ll have to wait till next (most likely E3!) before we get any new substantial information. As for what speculation has been right, I wonder which he is referring too? My guess it would be that the being in the picture is the incarnation of the Master Sword, a theory which has gained large acceptance amongst Zelda fans.
