The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Miyamoto: Zelda Wii U Is 'Vast' Rather Than 'Open World'

Posted on Friday, July 4 @ 05:33:49 PST by Alex_Osborn


Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamotowould rather not characterizethe nextThe Legend of Zeldafor Wii U as "open world," despite the company opting to use such language when describing the game during its E3Digital Event.

"I prefer not to use the generally used term 'open world' when developing software, but we used this term [at E3] in order to make it easier for consumers to understand," Miyamotoexplained during a Q&A with investors. "This term means that there is a large world in which players can do numerous things daily."

The legendary game designer then went on to elaborate, adding:
In the traditional The Legend of Zelda series, the player would play one dungeon at a time. For example, if there are eight dungeons, at the fourth dungeon, some players may think, 'I’m already halfway through the game,' while other players may think, 'I still have half of the game to play.' We are trying to gradually break down such mechanism and develop a game style in which you can enjoy The Legend of Zelda freely in a vast world, whenever you find the time to do so.

The Legend of Zelda for Wii U is set to launchsometime next year. Here's to hoping it doesn't get pushed to 2016.
