Zelda Multiplayer Could Be Next After Breath of the Wild

Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma says he'd like to take what he learned from Breath of the Wild and make a multiplayer game around it.


The Legend of Zelda series is no stranger to multiplayer games, and it looks like we could get a new one after Breath of the Wild. Franchise producer Eiji Aonuma says he'd like to take another shot at making a multiplayer Zelda game.

"I would like to take what I learned from Breath of the Wild and see if we can somehow fuse those learning points into another multiplayer Zelda," Aonuma told IGN. "That's definitely a possibility and we will continue to [experiment] throughout the Zelda franchise."
