Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma recently provided a short update on the development of the upcoming Legend of Zelda Wii U.
In an interview with Famitsu, Aonuma said the team was “busy,” and added “When we did Skyward Sword for the Wii, at the end stages of development, I was in charge of the characters’ dialogue and the in-game text. And, now as well, it’s like it was then. I had to work on text today, too.But, the game has really taken shape, and things have gotten easier. That means things are progressing well.”
Aunoma stressed that with the game, they are striving for “something new,” which he compares to the development and release of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
“I think the base of our secret sauce has always been Ocarina of Time. But this time, the change in flavor will be like going from Japanese food to Western style food. Perhaps, players will be surprised.”
“Please look forward to it, because I think we’ll be able to make ‘something new’ like Ocarina of Time was,” Aonuma added.
