Hey there guys! Alright, we’ve got a fairly general mailbag this time. It might focus largely on prospects for future Zelda games and spinoff/crossover titles, but it’s got a pretty wide array of very different questions on those topics! We’ve also got some Breath of the Wild stuff, particularly how, of course, it might influence later games! It should be interesting to think about what will happen with the series from here on out! Enjoy!
Questions and timestamps:
(00:33) – If the Zelda series were to have a crossover with another series, which series should they pick?
(02:22) – What do you think about Nintendo’s “Hardware Gimmicks” with Zelda? What do you think it will be in the next Zelda title?
(04:01) – If you were to make a Zelda game, who would the main villain be, and what would the plot/story be about?
(05:35) – What elements would you like to see in a hypothetical Zelda JRPG? (Example elements: Characters/story/combat/mechanics)
(07:13) – Do you think that if Nintendo releases another Breath of the Wild-like game, or at least one with climbing mechanics, that there should be more bosses that share similar traits to Shadow of the Colossus bosses? Granted there is the Taluses, but more larger bosses that you climb on… granted it fits the game as a whole thematically of course.
(08:37) – Breath of the Wild’s development heavily focused on breaking the Zelda formula and challenging series conventions. In terms of future Zelda games, would you like Breath of the Wild to become a basis for the new “Zelda formula”? Or should Nintendo continue to break conventions further? What did Breath of the Wild do right that you wish to see in future Zelda games, and what could you do without?
(10:46) – So, what are your favorite Zelda games in these categories: Side-quests, characters, world, and items?
Can you guess the quote on the paper, the sound at the beginning, or any of the music? Include them all with your question and you might guarantee it gets answered! How about your thoughts about the questions? What series would you like Zelda to have a crossover with? What would you like to see in a Zelda JRPG? How about what the story and villain would be if you made a Zelda game? And what are your favorite games in the series for side-quests, characters, world, and items? Tell me in the comments!
