News: Nintendo will hold a panel to discuss some of the changes that are featured in Link’s newest adventure.
Nintendo has revealed that they will be hosting a panel at the upcoming Game Developers Conference in San Francisco and it will feature three of the developers behind The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The panel, “Change and Constant - Breaking Conventions with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” will feature game director Hidemaro Fujibayashi, art director Satoru Takizawa and technical director Takuhiro Dohta. The panel is scheduled to be held at 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on March 1 at the Moscone Center.
For decades, The Legend of Zelda series has been recognized as a trailblazer in game design that has influenced countless other games and developers. The latest game in the series, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for both the Nintendo Switch and Wii U systems, introduces wide-ranging changes that break with many of the traditional conventions of the franchise. The panel will provide an in-depth look at how these convention-breaking changes were implemented.
The panel will take place two days before Nintendo Switch, Nintendo’s new home system, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild launch. For those who are not attending GDC, a video of the panel will be available at http://www.gdcvault.com the following week.
