Spike just recently put up an interview with Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma. It’s filled with lots of questions about A Link Between Worlds, such as stealth elements, Ravio’s role, comparisons to New Super Mario Bros. U’s Nabbit, and whether it was ever considered for Wii U (nope). Aside from that, there are also some off-beat topics like localizing Marvelous: Another Treasure (directed by Aonuma many years ago).
You can find some excerpts from the interview below. Spike’s full piece is located here.
