The Legend of Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has told IGN in a recent interview that he wants to put a surprise twist on the open world element found in the upcoming Zelda title for the Wii U. He says that the team have taken onboard fan feedback from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword and want to utilise some of the feedback they have received and use it in the upcoming Wii U adventure.
“We actually had some feedback from Skyward Sword, where people were saying, ‘This is not exactly the Zelda game I was looking for, I was looking for a bigger open world. Unfortunately, I can’t go into details but I’m hoping to put a surprise, or kind of a twist, on my view of an open world game. I hope that you’ll look forward to it.”
“If we put all the feedback the fans write directly into the game, there won’t be an element of surprise,” he said. “If there’s a comment and they’re asking for certain element, I would think, ‘Oh, why not interpret this in a different way that you wouldn’t expect?’ That’s how we create a new element in a Zelda game. I always want to implement something new and surprising into every game.“
