Zelda series director Eiji Aonuma revealed that he thinks developers at Nintendo (himself included) are often too careful with game development and take too much time to get games out the door.

Let's hope this doesn't remove any of the quality.

Nintedo's stance since the days of the N64 "Quality before Quantity". That's ok for 1st party games but the fact that most devs making games for the 360 and PS3 are just skipping the WiiU is unfortunate and it's only going to get worse when next gen sets in. With any one aside from nintendo at least.

nintendo made majora's mask in less than a year -_-

^technology also wasn't as advanced as it is now. the average time it takes to make a game is about 3-4 years when work is put into it.

DarkBlood1378d ago

well the locations in the game is kind of centralised, not to say OOT wasnt in that sense.

so it just seems easier to do i guess

Back in those days things were different. If I remember correctly, goldeneye was made by a team of 12 people. Games are much more detalied nowadays due to more detailed graphics, animations, and voice acting. Plus mm used a lot of precedents set in ocarina of time, so it took less effort.

Nintendo, STAPPP!!

shut down DAT mario factory now

kirbyu1377d ago


shut down DAT disagree factory now

Hey Wo there. Stop that. I might be a straight up Playstation fan now but I grew up playing Mario on the NES. They better not shut down that Mario Factory, they just need to create some new IP's to compliment their collection of classic IP's.

ElitaStorm1377d ago

i grew up playing mario aswell but dont you think it would be great to see another new IP just as fun as mario then a new mario?

NameRemoved00171378d ago

Better for the game to be polished at launch than to be an unfixable pile of crap.

mitchell11881378d ago

COD on vita for

BosSSyndrome1378d ago

At least that's a fixable pile of crap.

fatstarr1378d ago

thats fixed with DLC patches Lmao.

sway_z1378d ago

There's a fine line between quality & quantity...Ninty need that balance.

TXIDarkAvenger1378d ago

I believe they have that balance. They don't pump out shitty half-done games and add paid DLC later.

New Super Luigi U says hi ;)

_QQ_1377d ago

New super Luigi isn't bad DLC, an entire game for 20$? and almost a year after the original game released.

AznGaara1378d ago

If Naughty Dog can churn out The Last of Us in 3 years I'm sure Nintendo can do the same with Zelda.

AsheXII1378d ago

Zelda games are a lot bigger and more gameplay driven than TLoU though.

dantesparda1377d ago

wait, what? alot bigger and more gameplay driven? give me the copies of Zelda you've been playing

_QQ_1377d ago

@dantesparda Skyward sword takes at least 30 hours to beat skipping side quests ect, Last of us is said to take max 18 hours.

dantesparda1377d ago

ok, i'll give you longer/more time, but more gameplay driven? really?
