The Legend of Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma has indicated that, after development on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild is completed, he would like to create another multiplayer adventure set in Hyrule.
That comes after the experimentation seen in Nintendo 3DS exclusive The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, although multiplayer has been similarly explored when Nintendo worked on Four Swords, Four Swords Adventures, Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks.
“I would like to take what I learned from Breath of the Wild and see if we can somehow fuse those learning points into another multiplayer Zelda,” Aonuma shared with IGN. “For example, with Tri Force Heroes, which followed a similar format of Four Swords, there was a multiplayer involved in that game.
Aonuma confirmed that Breath of the Wild would only offer a single player experience, and that, in looking to break long-held conventions, Nintendo will repeatedly uncover new ways to experiment with the series.
He added, “That’s definitely a possibility and we will continue to [experiment] throughout the Zelda franchise.”
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will release simultaneously for Nintendo NX and Wii U in 2017.
