The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening - Aonuma discusses Chamber Dungeons and more

Hello, I’m Eiji Aonuma, producer of The Legend of Zelda series.

During Nintendo Direct | E3 2019, we revealed a new trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening on Nintendo Switch and announced the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was in development.

Regarding the sequel to The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, which is still very much a mystery, we are currently diligently working on development, so please look forward to more news to come!

I also appeared on Nintendo Treehouse: Live at E3 2019 to show the first live gameplay of The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. Please take a look!

The original version of Link’s Awakening for Game Boy is a memorable title for me, which got me interested in The Legend of Zelda series. I wanted to cherish the feeling of exploring this small but deep, immersive world filled with comical characters that I experienced when playing on the small Game Boy screen, so the development team applied a “tilt-shift“ perspective, which really makes you feel like you’re looking into a miniature diorama.

We even incorporated these diorama-like designs into our E3 booth so that those who visited could feel like they were peeking into this miniature world.

One of the new features I talked about on Nintendo Treehouse: Live was the Chamber Dungeons, which is an all-new feature for the Nintendo Switch version.

Fans of The Legend of Zelda might already be familiar with Dampé who appeared in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and other games in the series. In Link’s Awakening, Dampé can be found hanging out in some peculiar remains on Koholint Island...

It’s here that you can try out the new Chamber Dungeons feature.

After completing a dungeon in the main adventure, you’ll earn rooms from that dungeon known as “Chambers” that you can rearrange to form a new Chamber Dungeon. Dampé will also task you with arranging dungeons that fit a specific criteria too.

I have wanted to include a feature like this in a Zelda game for a while, but I wanted to keep it simple and avoid making it overly complicated. So instead, we made it a puzzle-solving experience, where players can discover and complete the dungeon they arranged themselves.

Even if you’ve already beaten a dungeon in the main adventure, mixing elements and rearranging the chambers around can lead to some surprising outcomes. I hope you’ll have fun arranging and playing through your own Chamber Dungeons!

Finally, we announced that The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening will release on Friday 20th September!

The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening Limited Edition, which includes the game, a 120-page artbook and a Game Boy-themed SteelBook, as well as a special Link amiibo in the style of Link’s Awakening will be released on the same day!

I hope you’ll look forward to the release!

Metal Gear Solid movie director talks on how he would approach a Zelda film

Jordan Vogt-Roberts, the director of the upcoming Metal Gear Solid movie, gave his thoughts on the Zelda franchise and how he would approach a movie adaptation. He said the following in an IGN interview...

''The thing about Zelda is Zelda is not Lord of the Rings, right? You cannot forget how quirky and bizarre Zelda is. I think you need to find a way to actually fuse the traditional Zelda and the very new Zelda.''

''I think you have to find a way to very intensely fuse the pure just sort of fantasy of The Ocarina of Time and The Link to the Past, but then I think you need to find a way to incorporate the newer pseudo-tech stuff — you know, the lasers and Tron lines that happen in the newer games, but in a way that’s not overwhelming.''
