What an Open World Could Mean for the Zelda Series

So why does the gaming community and press have such high hopes for introducing an open world to the Legend of Zelda series? Let’s dig a little deeper to find out how this anticipation translates to what changes people are really asking for. (The Legend of Zelda, Wii U)

Exploration is part of the fun!

Pretty interesting article actually, and I agree with a lot of what it says. Skyward Sword had a lot of handholding and little exploration, you follow the set path and complete the objective, still a fun game though. I can hardly wait for the new Zelda, I'm hoping it'll surpass all my expectations.

I'm not sure what it means for the Zelda series, but I know what it means for the consumer! More fun! :D

Most Zelda games have been open world, correct?
I wonder which ones have been more linear?
I am just playing through Wind Waker (beginning stages), looks like I'll be able to sail away later on and discover things on my own...right?

A lot of titles had illusions for the open worlds. All the 3d titles are all sectioned off very well. They want to bring the idea of the 2d games into the 3d and let you go anywhere from the get go, let you do things out of order and still be able to progress. The 3d games suffered from a bad pattern of do the dungeon get item defeat boss and maybe use the item once or twice after. They want to go back to the original which you could do dungeons out of order and there were only a few key items that you needed to progress.

so happy l can look forward to another game. all l got on my wii u is monster hunter, lol.

this looks fantastic but c'mon, Link was shown to us at the consoles release, waited so long :<

Poor troll...

They showed a tech demo then stated they were in the very early stages of the game and that the TECH demo may not look like the title. Plus there are tons of fun games for the wiiu so you must be very close minded to only get it for monster hunter.

why are you grasping at straws to make it look like l have anything against nintendo? l simply don't enjoy any of their games out on the wii u right now, you going to force me to try something l know l won't like? Are you that desperate for an argument?

Learn what trolling is, kid, it means when you bait someone into reacting negatively for lols...l did no such thing. use your brain.

open world, i think all i can say is about time. open world seems just right for a zelda game

i am hoping there is coop as well whether its two players or four to further increase the replay value.

however even its just open world, it will still be fun to play.

Some of the statements that Aonuma have made have me eager to see there take on Open World.

I think this has the potential to be a NEW Industry Standard.

Can't wait to see more of this game could be the best ever Zelda game and if it is wow what a game it will be.
