In a recent interview with The Legend Of Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma admitted that it is frustrating to create a sequel for one of the most critically acclaimed video games in history, The Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past. Here are his exact words:
“Yes, that’s a concern. Fans of the original game have a lot of fond memories, and when we announced this sequel I know that some were dubious about the idea of us adding to that game’s lore. The challenge is to pinpoint what it was about the original that people loved and to respect that, and so long as we do that I think we can make something those fans will like. It’s been a big point of discussion among the staff – how much fan service to give without blowing it. We’ve been thinking about how to make the new one in a way that will excite the fans without alienating people who haven’t played the original. We’re paying close attention to that.”
The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is set to launch sometime near November 2013.
