Nice

Another BotW like Zelda would be amazing.

I hope they bring back more classic Zelda monsters and bosses though. Imagine fighting Ghoma or Volvagia in the BOTW engine! ^^

And Darknuts.. I so wanted Darknuts, Stalfos (the OoT kind) and Iron Knuckles in BotW.

How about ReDeads?



Monolith often work on other first party projects alongside the main team especially in Zelda games, the more interesting thing here is how the technical side have been positioned as the internal team that frequently handles or helps with world building concept and designs which is why we've seen mainly open world games from them. Their current project is said to be more a more western style game.



Hm, i don't know if this is just to support the main Zelda team or not, but a fully Monolith-developed Zelda-game is intriguing

Western as in genre or western as in appeal?

All that is known is that it's a western style approach going by the listing they had when recruiting for the project.



So...they brought the Mario Kart motorcycle into Breath of the Wild for DLC.

They've been heading in a sci-fi fashion since Skyward Sword.

What if we can build our own Epona vehicle in the next Zelda. I'd love to scavenge a massive world for parts to beasts that we can ride. I'd love if they could be decked out with upgrades and abilities. Faster speed, jump abilities, flying abilities, magnet wheels so you can ride on metal surfaces. The possibilities are endless.

I know this is silliness and that many are probably groaning right now, but with as massive of a world as BotW offers, and with how useless the horses were, it would seem like a positive alternative to fast travelling everywhere. I like fast travelling, but I'm definitely not a fan of that loading sequence.

I just think at this point the Zelda lore is the most important thing, but everything around that is flexible and that as long as it's entertaining and authentic, we'll accept whatever direction they take us in.



Monolith helped on both Skyward Sword & Breath of the Wild so this is no surprise.

Useless? I was on a horse like, all the time. Fast travel only gets you so far and you can’t fast travel to explore because you can’t go to places you haven’t been to...
