Sure, most people haven’t even gotten their copy of Spirit Tracks yet, but can we really complain about new Zelda Wii information? Didn’t think so. Eiji Aonuma recently chopped it up with IGN about the highly-secretive new title, revealing a portion of its inspiration.
“With Twilight Princess, we challenged ourself to create the most vast and realistic world the series had ever seen, but we don’t feel that we were able to fully complete this objective. With that as a starting point for our improvements to the series in the future, we are of course working on a new game for Wii.”
He went on to effectively call Twilight Princess a building block for future titles:
“For any game to be remembered for a long time, just like Ocarina of Time was, the game must give the strong impression that it has set a new starting point for future sequels to build upon. We are working to further improve upon the experiences found in Twilight Princess so that our future games can realize these innovations.”
Good? Bad? Rebirth of the franchise? Death of the franchise?
