You thought, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was badass, just wait for the next Zelda game that’s currently in development, as you are reading this article.
Eiji Aonuma the Japanese video game designer, video game director and producer who work for Nintendo and his team are in the process of developing the next Zelda game, according to a note in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Master Works, an official artbook dedicated to the game of the same name.
The details are scarce from Aonuma’s note, but it’s certainly not surprising. Work on the Legend of Zelda tends to be very cyclical, with Breath of the Wild (Game of the year) starting almost immediately after Skyward Sword finished in 2011. This new Legend of Zelda IP will not be tangible for a long time Aonuma was still rethinking Breath of the Wild’s core fundamentals by the January 2013 Nintendo Direct.
In the ten months since Breath of the Wild’s release, Aonuma has stated that open world Zelda is likely here to stay, but also that the handheld Zelda team behind games like A Link Between Worlds remains separate and could stay 2D even on the Switch.
At E3 last year, Gameinformer interviewed Shigeru Miyamoto about Zelda, and how they plan to speed up development of future games to eliminate those four to six-year gaps to complete and perfect for the supporters of Nintendo worldwide.
