Aonuma doesn’t think VR is well-suited for Zelda

Gameblog was recently given the opportunity to interview Eiji Aonuma, the producer of Zelda. At one point, Aonuma was asked about his thoughts regarding Zelda and virtual reality.

At least for the time being, the two aren’t a match. VR allows the player to see the world from their own point of view. With Zelda, however, the purpose is to watch Link grow.

Aonuma’s words are roughly translated as follows.

“You know, one of the interests of the Zelda games is to evolve Link and therefore see him grow. In VR, you would no longer see Link, you would see the world from your personal point of view, so I think it would not be very ‘Zelda'”.
