Nintendo doesn't foresee Hyrule Warriors becoming a series going forward, talks about the idea of more Zelda spin-offs

What's next for Zelda?

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is the second Zelda spin-off in this style. Does that mean we can expect a Hyrule Warriors series as the years roll on? According to an IGN interview with Eiji Aonuma, that's not very likely.

"I do think circumstances could align like this again, but I don't think we're expecting this to become a series. We'd make that decision based on its creative merits, just like we did this time."

Producer Yosuke Hayashi was a bit more open to the idea, but it all depends on the fans.

"I think it depends on whether we get an idea that'll make all the fans happy!"

If this is the end of Hyrule Warriors, can Zelda fans expect more Zelda spin-offs down the road? Aonuma left the door open a tiny bit, but was far from confirming anything.

"Echoing my answer to the question above, we're always looking for valuable creative projects, but those only come about when several different conditions align. So, I think it's hard for us to have conscious control over the frequency."

Ya love to hear it! There are so many contemporary game designers with such a reverence for the franchise and each represents a way in which its essence can be recontextualized and tweaked in subtle ways to expand its scope.

Hmmm... That Retro Studios Zelda spin-off would be a thing of interest if ever made.

I would prefer if they gave other Nintendo franchises the Warrior treatment.

Im sure more Zelda spin-offs will come along we have both Hyrule Warriors, Cadence of Hyrule, Link's Crossbow Training, and the two Tingle DS games.

I also know some people who consider Triforce Heroes as a spin-off as well but Im not sure..

Warriors gameplay never seems to woe me. But i'd be stoked if they now did something like the oracle games.

Of course they'll make more Zelda spin-offs. All he says is "we'll make them once we have a good idea, not following a schedule." Good.
