With the upcoming release of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on the Nintendo Switch, many 2D Zelda fans have been wondering where that leaves them. Will the series transition away from 2D games, similar to what has happened with the Mario franchise?

In a new interview with Game Informer, series producer Eiji Aonuma shed a bit of light for these fans on the issue.

“The 3DS team and the Wii U team have different approaches to game development, so I don’t necessarily want to combine them and have them think together, but rather have each think about what they can bring to Nintendo Switch from their own perspective.”

That sounds to me as though Aonuma is saying that there’s a distinct possibility that the teams who worked on 2D Zelda games previously for the Nintendo 3DS will continue to do so once that console is phased out in favor of development for the Nintendo Switch.

What do you think?
