Back in January 2012 Nintendo put a Nintendo Direct in the late. They announced a bunch of stuff but the more interesting was the subtle Zelda news.
Aunoma said that they wanted to expand and "Rethink the conventions of Zelda", which are things we take for granted.
This is the chart Aunoma showed.
As you can see, Link Between Worlds not only gave you freedom of choosing the order of dungeons, but the entire game itself was much more open world in terms of structure giving you freedom that the past games didnt. and we can clearly think it might return for Wii U Zelda.
But what about that second one? "Play by yourself", it could mean Multiplayer, but considering the 4 Swords Adventures already exist, this set up could be for 3D Zelda in general.
What do you guys think?
