As The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild will be the first Zelda title that will include voice acting, with the exception of Link who will remain voiceless, fans may be wondering what motivated producer Eiji Aonuma to make this change.
Polygon had the chance to get a further insight into Aonuma’s decision in a recent interview, here’s what he had to say:
“It’s really difficult to leave an impression on players with just text, it’s not that I made everything voiced. But I have these moments where I want to leave impressions on users. I add voice there”. Aonuma also expanded further by saying that the first time he heard a character with a human voice it “touched his heart and was really striking emotions”.
The upcoming title, that will be released on the Wii U and the NX in the future, will have voice acting but will not be fully voiced.
