Downloadable content has become a big part of the games industry, and can often set a title apart from its competitors if its add-on content is just as good quality as the game itself. We’ve seen DLC in such Nintendo exclusives as Fire Emblem: Awakening and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity, but could we now be looking at additional content for The Legend of Zelda, and more importantly Zelda Wii U? In an exclusive interview with Nintendo Life, Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma has said that it’s certainly a possibility, but the content would have to be “worth it for the user”:
“We’re certainly looking at different ways to add on content that would enhance the experience for the user – maybe more places to explore or just to enrich the experience beyond what is on the disc. But we also have to take into consideration that if we charge for this content then it needs to be worth it for the user.
So it’s certainly a balancing an act, but I can’t say that it is something we’re not considering.” – Eiji Aonuma
