Following the release of Breath of the Wild’s Champions’ Ballad DLC, director Hidemaro Fujibayashi is already thinking about what could come next.
“I can't say at this point if it will be in sequels or in continuations, or what form it will take, but I definitely have lots of ideas and lots of motivation right now,” Fujibayashi told IGN.
“I think while we were working on both the main game and the DLC, it was a process of constantly getting lots of different, new ideas as we refined the game, and finding new things we wanted to do,” he added. “Even in situations like this, talking to people and finding out that people want to pet dogs gives me a lot of motivation, a lot of ideas for things we could put into the game.”
“What we learned from the DLC this time around is that it's almost like raising the world or enhancing the world,” produer Eiji Aonuma added. “In the past, we always had to start from zero again, to completion. Usually we'd be thinking, ‘oh, I wish we could add this, we could do that.’ What we couldn't do in that game, we would start fresh in a new game. But because we did a DLC, we realized it's a great way to kind of just improve that world, and kind of enhance it, and kind of raise it like your own child.”
Eiji Aonuma confirms to Famitsu that the Champions' Ballad is the finale to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and it is complete.
Maybe Eiji Aonuma is here hinting sequel (or prequel) to Zelda BotW, they could basically reuse engine, assets and world itself, something similar like they done going from OoT to MM. That would mean that we want wait too long for new 3D Zelda and that we could see new 3D Zelda in around 2019/2020.Last edited by Miyamotoo - on 22 December 2017
