Aonuma Wanted to Apologize to People for Mistakes He Thought He Made With Original Twilight Princess

A new statement from series producer Eiji Aonuma paints the video games giant in a very human light. When he was replaying Twilight Princess in preparation for the HD remake, he found “some negative things” that he didn’t notice at the time of its original launch. How did he feel about this? Apparently he was quite sad.
“To be honest, when I played it again, I wondered why some things turned out the way they did, and I also discovered some negative things that I didn’t notice at the time. I got quite down about it. I’m really happy we were able to fix those things in the HD remaster, but I was also overcome with the need to apologize to the people who bought the original versions of the game, even though I was so confident when we released it ten years ago… I want to go back in time and tell myself not to look so smug…” — Eiji Aonuma
Reading this quote makes me want to give Aonuma a big hug and tell him everything is okay. I’m glad he was able to improve Twilight Princess by re-releasing it on the Wii U.
