Zelda devs share their hopes for what you'll do/see when you play Breath of the Wild

Coming from a GamesRadar feature...

Director Hidemaro Fujibayashi wants you to find surprises

"This time the focus for the planning staff was to work hard to ensure that there is always some surprise when you reach your destination. The world in this game is extremely vast, but we made sure that there is always something to discover whenever you see something suspicious, so I hope that players will enjoy uncovering the elements and secrets that we hid in the world as they play."

Producer Eiji Aonuma wants you to play with friends

"We've shown the world of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to you in various ways, such as at demo events. However, though there will certainly be players who play the game by themselves, interestingly enough, if you get together with your friends to play I think that you will find that it is hard to sit and watch quietly. I suppose that playing The Legend of Zelda games alone could actually be considered another one of the conventions of the series, so people enjoying this game together with friends is a new experience for the series.

"I think that we've made a game where it's really fun to give each other advice and speculate about going to different places and trying different things. I myself am planning to play the game with my children. With the Nintendo Switch version, you can take the game out of the house and play it by yourself, but I hope players then return home and get together to explore this vast world on the big screen with their whole family."

Zelda's voice actor in Breath of the Wild to do an unboxing of the game


Well that's a pretty interesting idea! It'll be kind of neat to see the voice of Zelda herself unbox the game. It has to be a pretty surreal moment for her.
