Nintendo Wants Zelda Producer To Create A New IP

EDGE has had the opportunity to sit down with Legend of Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma to discuss the upcoming Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and talk about his work at Nintendo in general. Aonuma let slip to the publication that Nintendo wants him to create a brand new IP and to also create more Zelda titles. He says that he has an idea of a new game where he can live as a thief but wouldn’t elaborate any further.

“Actually, Nintendo has been telling me to create a new IP. But then, they’re also telling me to make more Zelda games. I can’t really share much; I’m not sure I’m allowed to say anything. But I really like the idea of a game where I can live as a thief. That’s all I’ll say.”

    1. Or, Nintendo’s take on Thief, but a little more light hearted, and in the third person. What I’d like to see is a third person adventure game centered around a honorable thief. And I would like to see this game lack combat, where you must remain hidden, oe flee if found. As for the story, I’ll leave that to others (please add a story or criticism in the comments)

  1. Aonuma-San can freely enjoy creating his own game. I think since Zelda skysword he really wanted to create his own and now he can. I am looking forward to seeing him doing something else.

  2. Whatever he does for a new IP, I look forward to it… as long as it doesn’t hinder Zelda games. They take long enough to release as it is.

  4. Seems like Nintendo learned from the success of Splatoon, in that they need to invest in new ideas and new IPs, not just keep rehashing established IPs.
