(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Nintendo revealed this morning during its Nintendo Direct E3 conference details of its next installment in The Legend of Zelda.
The “new world of Zelda” is scheduled to be released sometime in 2015 for the Wii U, making this the first game in the series to be on the console, Polygon reports.
“As far as what you can do with such a vast field to explore, as soon as those boundaries are removed, it means you can enter any area from any direction,” explained Nintendo’s Eiji Aonuma during the conference. “So the puzzle solving in this game begins the moment the player starts to think about where they want to go, how they want to get there, and what they will do when they arrive. This is a clean break from the conventions of past games in the Zelda series, where you had to follow a set path and play through the scenario in the right order.”
With this new open world concept, players will have to be on the lookout for enemies as they travel through the game.
“Powerful enemies appearing in such a peaceful world is one of the defining features of the Zelda series.”
