Breath of the Wild has won over the hearts of fans and critics alike for its amazing gameplay and brilliant open world design. In line with this, producer Eiji Aonuma suggested that this might be the new standard for future Zelda games.

Answers About Breath Of The Wild

According to Gematsu, producer Eiji Aonuma and director Hidemaro Fujibayashi recently had an interview talking about their latest project and what lies next for the franchise. One question about the game was regarding Ganon and why his existence was merely a concept than an actual character. Fujibayashi claimed that they did not need to attach a character onto him role-wise as it would require a backbone. Because of this, it would become "obtrusive" for the game and would most likely hinder some various mechanics.

Similarly, he claimed that Zelda's main role as a "lesser performing student" was easier to write that way. Her current role also earned from the approval from the main staff among the other functional implications found in the game.

Another often asked question about the game is regarding where it fits on the timeline. The director merely claimed that it should be left to the player's imagination but Aonuma offered a more detailed explanation. He stated that the history of Hyrule changes several times throughout history and even the details in textbooks constantly adapt as well. For this game, he tackled it as if he discovered "new ancient documents" in the game.

Future Zelda Games To Follow The Same Format

Finally, the producer noted that the future of the series will most likely use BotW's open-air format. The game promotes exploration and allows players to create all sorts of methods to explore the vast lands of Hyrule. One player even found a way to fly across the entire map in only 10 minutes, as per Polygon.

Breath of the Wild was a great step towards modernizing the series while retaining some of the core mechanics. With this in mind, it seems like Nintendo has some major plans for the future Zelda games. Fans can play the latest installment on the Wii U or Nintendo Switch.
