Nintendo is working on a new Legend of Zelda game. And according to Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto, the game will be easier to play.
In an interview with German site Gaming Media (via website 1UP), Miyamoto said that Nintendo is “creating a new way to play the game”. Continuing, he added, “We are trying to make Zelda, which has become very complicated, easier to play.”
As 1UP points out, Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma said in late 2009 that if Nintendo continued to follow the same structure, it might not be able to offer fresh surprises to players. “So we have been trying something new in terms of the structure of the Wii version of the new Zelda game this time,” Aonuma said at the time. “I am really hopeful that people will be surprised with the changes we have implemented for this Wii version.”
That “surprise” better not be Zelda but easier.
