The Legend of Zelda has been touted as one of the most popular games for Wii U console and some have even suggested it has contributed to the next-generation console’s competitiveness with other systems like Playstation 4 and the Xbox One.
Game developer Eiji Aonuma revealed that graphics for the game have “become something more amazing” since its trailer debut at E3.
“Everyone has been imitating this (snaps fingers) (laughs).
I was told by many people that it was “beautiful,” he told Japan-based Famitsu during an interview.
“I thought about various ways to make the graphical style fit the vast new Zelda world; imitating the real world attached an important feeling of realism, and making it look different to the past [Zelda titles], this was done by drawing inspiration from Japanese animations.
Now, compared to what we showed you at E3, it has become something even more amazing.” His comments, however, did not clarify what particular aspects of the game’s graphics have been improved, sparking confusion among gamers.
Developers held a Nintendo Direct event last week where it is rumored they would release new trailer footage for the game.
Nintendo has released a calendar of upcoming release dates for several of their titles, including The Legend of Zelda, which has been set for a end-of-year 2015 release date.
Many gamers are speculating, however, over the possibility of Nintendo further delaying the game’s release date.
The Legend of Zelda game for the Wii U is rumored to include the Master Cycle, a motorcycle used by character Link in the Mario Kart 8 game.
“The development team showed me how the Master Cycle races on the track, and I was overwhelmed by how great it looked,” Aunoma wrote in a MiiVerse blog post, according to the Christian Post.
“It looked so cool that I also want it to appear in games I work on,” Aunoma said.
