|The Legend of Zelda for Wii U
Here are some new screenshots of the next The Legend of Zelda game for Wii U, which will be coming in 2015. Producer Eiji Aonuma said that in the new world Link no longer needs to follow a fixed path. "This is a clean break from the conventions of past games in the Zelda series, where you had to follow a set path and play through the scenario in the right order. I believe this departure will create opportunities for new gameplay that have not been experienced in previous Zelda games. As you know from the Zelda series, the world in these games can be quite peaceful. However, it is a Zelda game, after all, so strong enemies will certainly appear, even in this setting. Powerful enemies appearing in such a peaceful world is one of the defining features of the Zelda series."
In an interview with VentureBeat, Aonuma said that the images you saw for this game, the character may or may not be link, he said "No one explicitly said that that was Link."
