Containing so many places to explore and discover, the producer reveals that the game will take more than a week to fully complete. Meanwhile, a new video showcases the game's rather long loading times.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a Lengthy Game
Breaking out from the typical linear formula, the upcoming Zelda game boasts a wide array of place for players to explore. Because of this, series producer Eiji Aonuma stated that it will take players more than a week to '100 percent' complete the game, as per IGN. With this in mind, it seems like those completionist players might be stuck with this title before eventually moving on to a different game.
That aside, Aonuma also noted that creating the game was actually a 'long road' for the development team as they started the project with nothing but an empty field. In order to progress, they had to constantly revisit each level to keep adding elements and further enhance the overall experience. Despite this, it seems like the team was able to fulfill their goal of creating an even bigger world than Skyward Sword.
On a different note, Shacknews reports a new video that finally shows off the proper Nintendo Switch user interface (UI). Everything is quite minimalistic including when a game is booted up. The short clip also showed off the standard loading times for the upcoming Zelda game and it seems to be quite lengthy.
Loading Times and User Interface
To begin with, Breath of the Wild's UI is actually quite simple and plain with nothing quite eye-catching. It takes the Switch around 30 seconds to actually load a save file but this seems to be quite fitting judging by the scope of the game's world. With this in mind, fans should expect a longer loading time on the Wii U.
It is clear that Nintendo has poured their greatest effort into delivering the boldest installment in the franchise yet. However, will the risks they took be worth it when fans and critics finally get their hands on a copy? Players can pick up The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on Mar. 3.
