Reggie says Zelda: Breath of the Wild will offer the best of both worlds
Many outlets scored interviews with Nintendo’s top executives and developers at E3 this week, including E! Reggie was asked about Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and noted that it’ll have something for both new players and longtime fans, stating that it will be “the best of both worlds.”
“As [Eiji] Aonuma and the team were thinking about what to do next with Zelda, this thought of exploration, open air, the ability for you, if you want, to go try and take on the big bad boss right at the get go…it won’t go so well, but you can! You have all of that freedom. That’s what they wanted. … The game is a masterpiece.
There still is puzzle solving. You still are questing to find better and better weapons, to beat tougher and tougher enemies out there. Over the next couple of months we’ll share more and more about what’s the same and what’s different. There still are elements that are traditional to a Zelda game. We believe it’s the best of both worlds.”
By the way, as a bit of an aside, Reggie said that the item he hates the most in Mario Kart is the Blooper since he hates getting inked.
