Wii U GamePad’s Dual View Compromises ‘The Legend of Zelda’ Gameplay

By on

After The Legend of Zelda was featured in the Nintendo booth during the recently-concluded Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2016 event, fans can?t seem to get enough of the game until producer Eiji Aonuma revealed that the Wii U Gamepad?s dual view is affecting Zelda?s gameplay.

In his interview with Wired, he said ?We realized that having something on the GamePad and looking back and forth between the TV screen and the GamePad actually disrupts the gameplay, and the concentration that the game player may be experiencing. You have your car?s GPS system on your dash. If you had it down in your lap, you?re going to get into an accident!?

Clearly, Aonuma wanted the single screen display for The Legend of Zelda and with ?Breath of the Wild? coming to NX soon, it is a challenge to put two things under different gaming concepts. He also added, ?I?m not going to create something where the users are going to have a different experience.?

Apparently, the arrival of ?Breath of the Wild,? a direction for Zelda, is a sure sign that Nintendo hopes to create another project that seem to have put the company in the spotlight. Moreover, it is the Nintendo team who was given credit for being creative enough to conceptualize new stories for Zelda.

Meanwhile, TheBitBag recently revealed the artwork for The Legend of Zelda and by the looks of it, there will be some cliffhanger situations and a lot of climbing to do. During the E3 2016 event, it is also the only Nintendo game playable in their booth.

Aonuma also said that fans can now expect different other games for the Nintendo console once they establish the success of The Legend of Zelda.

The Verge, on the other hand, thinks that The Legend of Zelda has been the biggest game at the event simply because it changed a lot in so many ways. In an interview with Nintendo?s president and COO Reggie Fils-Aime, he said ?We think we?ve struck a chord. And we?ve struck a chord with what is a very important franchise for us. A franchise that is going to be key to our long-term success.?
