Wii U Zelda game development “going well”

October 6th, 2013 by bash Comments

Development on the upcoming Wii U Legend of Zelda game, due for release next year, is “going well”, according to series producer Eiji Aonuma.

Speaking to 4Gamer, in a new interview translated by Siliconera, Aonuma also said that ‘A Link Between Worlds’ would use the GamePad in “various ways” in a bid to shake up the series.

The producer was recently quoted as saying that he was “tired” of making Zelda games. However, he said during the interview that he had been misquoted.

“When I say I’m tired, I’m not talking about making Zelda, but rather, the same constituent that has been used to make Zelda up until now,” Aonuma said.

“While on the subject, in regard to how we’ve always done things the traditional way until now: ‘Why does it have to be traditional?’ That’s the question I’ve been asking myself.”

Aonuma will discuss the Legend of Zelda series during a New York Comic Con panel next week in New York City.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
