The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom turned out to be a way more distinctive and creative expertise than most had anticipated when Nintendo first confirmed that it might be a direct sequel to Breath of the Wild, however with the subsequent mainline instalment within the collection, it seems like Nintendo will as soon as once more look to move into utterly uncharted waters.
Talking in a current interview with Famitsu, The Legend of Zelda collection producer Eiji Aonuma confirmed that there are not any plans to work on DLC for Tears of the Kingdom, and added that the main focus now will as an alternative shift to the subsequent recreation within the series- which, he says, can be one thing “utterly new”, even when it does find yourself being set in the identical Hyrule as Breath of the Wild and Tears of the Kingdom.
“Within the first place, the explanation why we determined to make a sequel to the earlier recreation was that we thought that the gameplay was worthwhile to expertise in that Hyrule,” Aonuma stated. “If such a motive is born once more, we could return to the identical world once more. Whether or not it’s a sequel or a brand new one, I feel it’s going to be a totally new recreation, so I hope you possibly can sit up for it.”
And what type will that subsequent recreation take? Unsurprisingly, given how contemporary Tears of the Kingdom nonetheless is, there’s no concrete reply for that but. Aonuma stated: “I’m interested by what the ‘subsequent enjoyable expertise’ can be. I can solely say that we don’t know at this level what type it’s going to take.”
No matter what path Nintendo chooses to take the collection in subsequent, given how lengthy the gaps between mainline Zelda releases are usually, it appears secure to imagine that it will likely be some time earlier than we hear what’s subsequent for the franchise.
