This month, one of gaming’s biggest buzzes comes from none other than The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which took home much praise for its open air game play and its rebooting the franchise from its traditional elements. So, what are we going to do at Gamer Professionals? We’re going to continue to beat that dead horse because to talk about the game in a handful of articles doesn’t do it any justice whatsoever.
Being the person who was able to take on the demo at E3, the mechanics and game play are so vastly different from what we’ve been used to. Personally, I’d love to see a Zelda that goes into the multiplayer sphere again. It did in Triforce Heroes, but never went beyond that and was rather tepid in its critical response.
For Breath of the Wild, though, it’s inspired head Eiji Aonuma to possibly explore the multiplayer Zelda genre yet again.
“I would like to take what I learned from Breath of the Wild and see if we can somehow fuse those learning points into another multiplayer ZeldA.” – Eiji Aonuma
From the multiplayer side of things, we’ve had Four Swords Adventures, Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks minigames, and Triforce Heroes. Given how different Breath of the Wild is for the series, what can we possibly see in store? There is a younger team developing the new Zelda based on currently popular trends in the gaming industry; can this team make a multiplayer online Zelda experience that takes our breath away?
