Miyamoto Confirms There Will Be Plenty To Do In Zelda Wii U Overworld

Mr Miyamoto has been busy lately catching up with popular YouTubers and answering their questions. iJustine managed to get some Zelda Wii U information from Shigeru Miyamoto who clarified that there will be plenty to do in the game’s overworld. You’ll have so much to do that you’ll forget what your main mission is, though I’m sure you’ll get back on track eventually.

You showed the Zelda trailer and that’s such a huge world. How is that going to be for you guys to approach as far as gameplay and story, because it’s such a huge world.
With Zelda games, what we’ve always done is try to make them where you enter this big world of Hyrule and there’s a lot to explore and discover, but because of the hardware limitations, what we’ve had to do is segment off each area and piece those segments together in a way that make them feel like a big world. Now, with the hardware capabilities of Wii U, we first started by saying if we can take an entire world the size of the world from Twilight Princess, and make that the size of one of the areas in the game.

Do you see that as a game where people will go to complete a certain mission and they end up doing fifty things along the way?
Yeah, there may even be times where you forget what your goal is, because you are doing other things on the side. There may be times where you go in to one big one long dungeon, or you’re headed for a dungeon and doing other things on the side. What we’re trying to do is design it in a way where you don’t have to play it for a super long time, but more matched to today’s lifestyle where you can think for a little bit, and say “maybe I just want to play for a little bit today and do this one thing.” and get that thing done, then take a break.

 

Thanks to those who sent this in.

  2. Good. Now people can stop whining about not seeing anything to do in the world. The footage shown at The Game Awards was a (very good) teaser, they’d clearly want to save the big stuff for E3 and future Nintendo Directs.

  4. I want this game to feel like Majora’s Mask in terms of the importance of NPC’s. In that game, they each had some sort of significance and they weren’t just thrown in there for the fuck of it.

    Have people in the Zelda Wii U overworld, but establish their presence and don’t make them forgettable. Don’t have them just say “Press the A button to…”; making them have substance ultimately makes the overworld seem more lively and impactful and therefore a more memorable game.

  5. Just when I thought Nintendo couldn’t top 2014…smh. It looks like their gonna do it and then some in 2015. Xenoblade Chronicles X, Star Fox Wii U and the new Legend Of Zelda will be massive must haves

  6. I always new there would be plenty to do. I don’t understand all the people complaining about the world being empty when they haven’t even seen the game yet! Hell, they don’t even know the title of the game, and still complaining about it… (here’s looking at you Nintendo Voice Chat on IGN) You have only seen what Aonuma wanted you to see. Nothing more, nothing less. I cannot wait for this game. Literally. I’m gonna go to Nintendo and demand an early copy..

  10. Just like Xenoblade Chronicles, yay! Even better is the fact we won’t have to worry about 25+ side quests making us too overpowered for the next dungeon, unlike Xenoblade Chronicles. I won’t make the same mistake I did with Xenoblade Chronicles for the New 3DS that I made with the original game, so I will only do the side quests AFTER I’ve completed the dungeon in the current area. Unless I’m getting curb stomped into oblivion by the dungeon then I’ll go back & do some side quests. With any luck, they’ll balance it better for the New 3DS by either raising the level cap past 99 & increasing the difficulty or making the side quests give out less rewards.
