The Legend of Zelda Wii U Will Be ‘Something New Like Ocarina of Time Was’

'Players will be surprised.'

Zelda Wii U

The last time we heard about The Legend of Zelda was in March of 2015, when Nintendo announced they would be delaying it into next year. It’s been a long, painful year since- but today, we finally got to see a little, teensy bit of what is going on behind the curtain,when director Eiji Aonuma discussed the new game in Japanese magazine Famitsu (transcribed by Kotaku).

“When we did Skyward Sword for the Wii, at the end stages of development, I was in charge of the characters’ dialogue and the in-game text. And, now as well, it’s like it was then. I had to work on text today, too,” he said with a laugh.

“But, the game has really taken shape, and things have gotten easier. That means things are progressing well.”

He discussed what players can expect from this new game, hinting that it will be ‘something new.’

“I think the base of our secret sauce has always been Ocarina of Time. But this time, the change in flavor will be like going from Japanese food to Western style food. Perhaps, players will be surprised. Please look forward to it, because I think we’ll be able to make ‘something new’ like Ocarina of Time was,” Aonuma added.

As long as it is as awesome as The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds was, I don’t think I will have any complaints.

The Legend of Zelda is set to launch by the end of this year on the Wii U, and, presumably, the Nintendo NX too.
