Zelda Wii U Won’t Have An Open World Similar to Other Titles

So nothing like Grand Theft Auto it seems.

Zelda Wii U

Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda Wii U managed to make a very strong impact when it debuted during the Nintendo Direct presentation at E3 2014. Sure, there was plenty of discussion as to whether Link was a girl or not but more importantly, producer Eiji Aonuma revealed that there would be an open world this time around.

Of course, in speaking to EDGE (via NeoGAF), Aonuma revealed that, “Since we’re talking about open worlds, let’s state upfront that we don’t plan to have an open world in the same way other companies have been doing in recent years.”

What does that mean exactly? It could possibly mean that there won’t be dozens of jobs to farm cash or Skyrim-like scale and depth. Then again, it could also mean that Nintendo won’t be taking the same route as most open world games in terms of their gameplay. We’ll find out how it works as we head into 2015.
