We all know that the new original Zelda game on Wii U is going to be amazing when it finally releases. One thing we haven’t spoke about though is the Zelda Wii U map size, with Nintendo promising an open-world environment that could be a dream come true for old fans of the series.
Big worlds are expected whenever a new Zelda game is in the pipeline and this Wii U game may end up with boasting the biggest world for Link and his companions to travel in.
While it is obviously still too early to see the full map, Zelda producer Ejii Aonuma has however given us a tease on what players can expect in terms of map size.
When speaking to MMGN during E3, he actually compared the Wii U Zelda map to the size of Kyoto – a real life city in Japan. Those familiar with the area will know that it is a massive city, so there can be little doubts that this game isn’t going to cut any corners in relation to scale.
Aonuma also said that during a player’s travels, he or she will go from place to place acquiring new abilities, but also new knowledge as well in order to progress further on in the game.
Let’s hope that it isn’t too long until we see the actual map in front of us. If you are a hardcore Zelda fan, tell us what you are most excited about for this game.
Do you think it could end up being better than A Link to the Past?
