Aonuma didn’t go into much detail of how the game is, but he did mention that the monster that was in the E3 trailer could be something that would require a high-speed chase across the countryside, a first for the series. Aonuma also delve into the decision of the art style saying:
“Rather than seriously considering something photorealistic using the real world as a model, the vision comes from inspiration by Japanese animation and such from the past that I may or may not have watched before. That’s how the [vision] came to be.”
To make this news more exciting, Aonuma revealed that the game now looks better than the E3 trailer that premiered earlier this year. While they are still working on it and how to properly develop a Zelda game on a vast and seamless world, Aonuma said that we are likely to see something about the new Legend of Zelda game at E3 2015.
The Legend of Zelda for Wii U is expected to be released sometime in 2015.
I don’t see how The Legend of Zelda on Wii U looks even better than it does now. If there wasn’t enough reason to get a Wii U already, a potential open world Legend of Zelda game would be it. It may take about a year for the game to be released, but I trust Nintendo on delivering a great Legend of Zelda game.
