Earlier this month, Nintendo launched something called “Nintendo News” on its Japanese website. Think of it as a weekly online magazine in a way.

The latest issue, posted a few days ago, features some comments from Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma who reflected on the series. Aonuma spoke in one part about how discovering treasure is one of Zelda’s most enjoyable aspects.

On the topic of finding things when you go on an adventure, Aonuma said:

My son is in elementary school, and he asked, “What is so fun about Zelda anyway?” I tell him, “Finding treasure is the most fun!” Even if it is only one rupee inside the treasure chest, I think (laughs). Whenever you find a treasure chest, there is always a “Yes! I found it!”-sense of accomplishment, and when you open it, it is just so fun to hear. To discover a new item, I think I find pleasure in both the surprise and the opening.
