Future Zelda Games Might Have Free Exploration – Aonuma

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild director Eiji Aonuma had earlier revealed the existence of a new Zelda game which was in development, now he has also given a faint idea of what to expect from future Zelda games.

Breath of the Wild had an open world and exploration which allowed the player to do whatever they wanted and it seems that game design formula will be present in future games as well.

“You know, I can’t speak to what other people, other companies will do in their own games, but I think for me, especially just in terms of the Zelda series, the incredible freedom that this game offers you and how well that’s been received…to me, it means that freedom, that level of freedom is something that needs to be maintained in Zelda games going forward. My eyes have been opened to how important that is,” he revealed to IGN.

“So for example, if there was like, ‘you can’t do this because you don’t have the right tools’ or ‘you don’t meet the certain requirements,’ players are going to not want to do that anymore. So we wanted to very much incorporate that.”

“Going forward, I think we would definitely consider that way of thinking when we create something in the future”

This is good news for people who loved Zelda: BotW and want more of the same in future games.

We do not know when a new Zelda game will be released but it looks likely to be 2019 or 2020.
