Eiji Aonuma, the producer behind the Legend of Zelda series has told Game Informer that the Zelda Wii U demo was just a rough idea and that the actual game will look significantly better. Would you prefer the realistic Zelda shown in the trailer or another cell shaded adventure?
”The demo that we showed at E3 was really just more of a rough idea of if all we were to do was to take a Zelda game and put it in HD, this is what it might look like.
“We’re much more interested in looking at the power of the Wii U system and seeing how we can take advantage of that power to do things that we haven’t been able to do in a Zelda game before….
“One of our goals with [Skyward Sword] is to be the first step in illustrating for people how the Zelda series can change and evolve.”
Eiji Aonuma has also hinted to Game Informer that the next Zelda game for the Nintendo 3DS will be reliant on 3D to offer a brand new gameplay experience to players.
Aonuma said that he expects to be able to do something “very interesting” on the system. He gave me one highly suggestive hint, leading me to believe that the team is further along than just thinking about the new title: “It will be a game in which having 3D will mean something.”
