Aonuma: "Possibility of Another Zelda on Nintendo Switch"
Coming from an interview with IGN, Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has talked about the possibility of another Zelda title coming to the Nintendo Switch eventually. Aonuma stated that he has not "been able to fully use all of the new features of the system" and that "there could be the possibility of another Zelda on Nintendo Switch." Aonuma also went on record saying:
"I think the core element of Zelda gameplay kind of stays the same. There's the main character development as well as characters you meet along the way, and then you learn new things as the character develops. With that said I think we could keep all that, and then I do wonder how we can expand from here with that in mind."
Shigeru Miyamoto also gave a few words on the topic. Miyamoto said, "Mr. Aonuma is the producer for Zelda. If we don’t create another one, he’s going to be out of a job, that should be his motivation for another one." He went on to say:
"As a company, Nintendo releases a main series in our key franchises for every new hardware that we've put out. If we release another hardware, that'll be another new Zelda."
Breath of the Wild is launching on March 3rd, 2017 for both Nintendo Switch and Wii U. The next game may very well be in early stages of development as is customary for product creators. We will keep you updated should any more news surface regarding this topic!
