Aonuma confirms that Wind Waker HD will not have any new content
According to Kotaku earlier today, Eiji Aonuma has stated that the development team will not add anything new to the upcoming Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD.
If you think that means that the upcoming remake will just be the original game with an HD upgrade, however, you would be wrong. Aonuma assures that, “My main goal in making Wind Waker HD was to stay true to the original and really balance the game. When we released the GameCube version we weren’t able to fully do that and make the adjustments I felt were necessary to optimize the experience. So there will be no new content, but overall gameplay should be improved.”
Aonuma went into details about what he meant. “As for the overall balance of the game, in terms of number of dungeons and amount of content, I think it’s just right. But the one thing that I am trying to improve in Wind Waker HD is some of the process of getting to [some] places took too long. You would travel for a long time, and the payoff would not be there,” said Eiji.
This doesn’t mean that nothing will change aside from balance, however. In fact, players will be able to leave messages to others playing the game, which will show up as bottles. These bottles can wash up on islands or even appear in dungeons.
Some gamers believe that this project is just Nintendo trying to rush out a Zelda game to appease fans. Do you believe they are correct?
