Pretty sure Gamefreak have a much bigger development team with way more resources at their disposal ... but even then this isn't correct. Nobody is asking for Gamefreak to be as consistently innovative or risk-taking as Zelda team. People are asking for an entry that innovates enough so that the next few entries also still feel somewhat new and novel. Not for every entry to be BOTW. Essentially after Gamefreak move on from one console, they should probably re-access the series and try to put a spin on it. That's already much more gracious and understanding than most people are to long running series that get milked ...
Well we don't know everything about this game yet. They did say they were trying new things.
Oh yeah, absolutely. They could always do something new and innovative and things are yet to be announced. Besides me personally, while I would have loved something like a 3rd person over back-view camera I mostly just play these games casually for a single playthrough. I just do not think the interests of people who do want innovation should be misconstrued as inherently wanting something unreasonable ... like a five year dev time for every game (that would be ridiculous!).
