The Legend of Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has revealed in the latest edition of Japanese publication Famitsu that he hopes to create an experience with Zelda Wii U that feels as new as things did when The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was released back in 1998.
“When we did Skyward Sword for the Wii, at the end stages of development, I was in charge of the characters’ dialogue and the in-game text. And, now as well, it’s like it was then. I had to work on text today, too,” he said with a laugh.
“But, the game has really taken shape, and things have gotten easier. That means things are progressing well.”
“I think the base of our secret sauce has always been Ocarina of Time. But this time, the change in flavor will be like going from Japanese food to Western style food. Perhaps, players will be surprised.”
“Please look forward to it, because I think we’ll be able to make ‘something new’ like Ocarina of Time was,” Aonuma added.
