The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild which launched in March has inspired many developers and one such developer is Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata. GameSpot managed to catch up with him during PAX West and talk about what he has planned next. Interestingly, he really wants to recreate the feelings that players experienced playing the open world Zelda game in his next title. Here’s his thoughts:
“I’ve heard a lot from the dev team and their reactions to having played it (Zelda Breath of the Wild) . But just from hearing the stories and the feedback, you know, we can tell that it’s a really complete game,” Tabata said. “It’s very polished, almost a perfect game in that regard. And our goals are probably to take that experience that players felt with Breath of the Wild, but with our own technology and our own know-how.
“We have in our disposal to create a very, very high-quality game with a strong visual element to it, while creating a world that’s really immersive and really beautiful. That’s probably our goals in terms of what we want to be with our next project.”
