Eiji Aonouma On The New Look And Why Nintendo Wasn't Inspired By Skyrim

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was one of the most impressive games of E3 2016. After playing the game for over 40 minutes, we sat down to grill series producer Eiji Aonouma on why Nintendo is changing up the series formula, what inspired the game's look, and how Breath of the Wild is different from other open world games.

This Zelda game is dramatic change from previous Zelda games, we're curious why you felt like now was a good time to change up the formula.Aonouma: So this came up a little bit in our Q and A session earlier, but someone, a user who played Skyward Sword, said, 'We want to know what happens in the places you can't go to.' And I think for people, especially the Zelda fans, they have a curiosity to find out what happens in those places where you can't go, where you're not supposed to go. So we wanted to create a world where you can further that investigation, you can go further and further and continue to search for places where you can't go.
