The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is finally here and released after a long 5 year waiting period since the last console release. This was the longest since A Link to the Past and Ocarina of Time which lasted an incredibly long 7 years. Luckily to help bridge the gap between Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword we had several different releases on the DS and 3DS to get us by, but now that the wait for Skyward Sword is over and thanks to the Zelda Wii U demo, we now begin the long wait for the next console Zelda title.
On one of the segments of Iwata asks, Iwata asked if it would be possible to complete a brand new Zelda game within 3 years. To read the discussion from the segment for yourself be sure to keep reading after making the jump!
I really don’t know what to do! (laughs) For the next one, if we will build on the methods we established this time, we might end up getting into a rut.
That’s difficult. I’m thinking about the next game, too, and I feel like the hurdle is really high.
But there is a lot left that we didn’t do this time.
You have limited time and people, so there’s bound to be something left over. But five years is a long time. (laughs) Can’t you do it in three years next time?
Sorry! You’re right! (laughs wryly)
Sorry, I’ll think of something that can happen in three years!”
So is it really possible to fully complete a Zelda title in less than 3 years? We know Majora’s Mask only took 2 years to complete, but it also used left over ideas and the same character designs from Ocarina of Time. So why couldn’t Zelda Wii U do the same? It would be nice to re-explore the world of Skyward Sword, see if Link went on an adventure after the end, see the formation of life in Hyrule by the Skyloftians and all without dealing with jagged edges would be amazing! If you fell inlove with Skyward Sword like I did than I’m sure you would love to see a follow up with the same characters you connected with or it could be a brand new game on it’s own and reuse the same character designs as OoT, WW, Tp or SS.
How do you long think a new Zelda Wii U game would take to complete and release? Do you think they could actually make another perfect Zelda title or would it end up feeling rushed? Leave us your thoughts in the comments below and remember to check back for more updates!
