Legend of Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma has been doing interviews with various French sites. In an interview with Gameblog he was asked about VR in Zelda, here is his response (translation is from Perfectly Nintendo):
|You know, one of the main points of interest in Zelda games is to have Link progress, to watch him grow up. In VR, you wouldn’t be able to see Link, you would see the world from your own point of view. I don’t think it would be very “Zelda-like”.|
Check out the Perfectly Nintendo article for a few more of his answers, including one that I’m sure a few people will react stupidly to.
