Speaking with Game Informer, Eiji Aonuma confirmed that Hidemaro Fujibayashi will return to direct the Breath of the Wild sequel.
When asked if he was going to give himself more time to work on this game than 2000’s The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask:[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]”When I was making Majora’s Mask, the timeline was in a year. I was a little stubborn and I was going to make it from scratch and was really gung ho, but it turns out the staff was a little tired from that process. I’ve learned to give myself plenty of time. You don’t want to do it that way or else you’ll get white hair like me.”[/testimonials]
When talking about its world, he added:[testimonials user=” email=” name=” position=” photo=”]”One of the reasons we wanted to create a continuation was because I wanted to revisit that Hyrule again and use that world again, while incorporating new gameplay and new story.”[/testimonials]
