A Nintendo executive has said Breath of The Wild is “a game that doesn´t give a damn about its plot” – and that it’s not meant to be a sequel to the beloved series.
The game is expected to launch in 2018, with a release window of 2018 or 2019.
The studio behind Breath of Abridged, Nicalis, has made its name with games like Kingdom Hearts and Breath of Fire.
But while Nintendo has not confirmed that it will be working on a new Legend of the Zelda title, a report from IGN claimed the company is “considering a new Zelda game”.
“There’s nothing wrong with a new title,” Nicali president Hidemaro Fujimaki told IGN.
“But we don’t want to just make a new game, we want to create a new world.”
“We need to make the right decision,” he added.
“We don’t need to be the first company to make a Zelda game.”
Nintendo’s Breath of a Wild has been criticised for its narrative and lack of character development.
A number of critics have criticised the game for the fact that it only features three main characters, which could be seen as limiting its potential for future sequels.
“Breath of the World and Breath Of The Wild are games that don’t give any shit about their plot,” Niyama said.
“It’s a game that’s designed for the sake of the story.
It doesn’t make sense to talk about it.
I don’t think there’s any point to talking about it.””
It’s not a story that we want a sequel, and we’re not interested in it.”
Nintendo has previously hinted that a new, standalone Legend of The Zelda title could come after Breath of World, and that Nicalisen’s previous title, The Wind Waker HD, could be a possible follow-up.
The Legend Of Zelda: The Windwaker HD was released in 2018 and is considered one of the best games of the series.
