Monolith Soft is a Japanese developer that is a reliable asset to the Zelda development team. They assisted with graphics design and other artistic elements for Skyward Sword. According to Zelda: Breath of the Wild producer Eiji Aonuma, Monolith will be working on the topographic arrangements of Hyrule, a role that Aonuma says is “minor, but still fairly important”. Aonuma explained that Breath Of The Wild will contain the most open-world version of Hyrule yet. Because of this, he feels that it’s vital that the game make the land not all look the same. As a result, Monolith will work on mountains, hills and gullies. Aonuma says that they will be all over the place.
This won’t be the only game coming this year that Monolith had involvement in. After Zelda: Breath Of The Wild releases on the Nintendo Switch as a launch title on March 3rd, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is planned to release sometime in 2017.
The last time I was this early, sickr still had a blog about the Vita.
I think he still has it 😂
Dammit, I thought you guys would have forgotten about that! XD
We will never let it go sickr 😂
You do? I’d like to see it!
It’s dead :( I didn’t have time for it and needed to focus my efforts on My Nintendo News. For the best!
What happened to myrarenews?
That was the PS Vita site. I just changed the domain name but again I realised I needed to focus on MNN :)
It’s dead….just like the Vita.~
I cannot wait for this game!!
The longest month approaches, February!! Or should I say, THE MONTH BEFORE MARCH.!!!
Its hell month. The new saying should be “a countdown watched slows the freaking universe down!” But you can’t help but watch your countdown… MARCH 3rd FREAKING GET HERE ALREADY YOU DOUCHE!!!!
But isn’t February the shortest month? /s
Lol but its the last month of the wait
I doubt they had a minor when the environment is as beautiful as Xenoblade’s games.
Damn MonolithSoft seems to be a very important subsidiary for Nintendo these days!
May i just say that monolith plays such a big role in Nintendo then before which is great cause i love my self some monolith games
Very pleased to hear this, Monolith is a fantastic company, I can’t think of one bad game that they’ve either created or assisted in. ♡
I’d say making sure the landscape isn’t boring is pretty fucking important!! I’m glad Monolith is on the job!
With an open world game, working on the landscape is far from being a minor job. *shrug*
I really don’t find that comment from Aonuma-san really helpful.
