Aonuma interview from this week’s Famitsu implies that open world Zelda will be the standard from now on https://t.co/7LsWT2UaLM— Japanese Nintendo (@japanese3ds) April 4, 2017
The following is a rough translation; a more official translation will be posted once it becomes available:
Famitsu: Making the next Zelda game might be more difficult if you choose to make it an open-air game. What will evolve open-air? How will you make future dungeons? What will the next Zelda title be like?
Aonuma: I think that, in the future, open air games will be the standard for Zelda.
