Iwata Asks: the essence of Zelda (part 1)

Link

The first part of the recent Iwata Asks is now translated for our reading enjoyment. And what was Satoru Iwata‘s agenda for the little sit-down? The indefinable essence of Zelda. He was trying to tap into the essence of what makes a Zelda game, well, a Zelda game – the traditional Zelda game we’ve all come to love. Does The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess make or break the series?

They touched on the various elements of developing such a well-established game like this series, and were able to discuss a whole spectrum of ideas: from the no-longer-lefty decision they had to implement on Link, to the progression of puzzles in the dungeons, and down all the way to the interaction and dialogue between characters.

Too bad part two of the interview (the one with the combat vid’s) still doesn’t have the translation, but we’re bound to get a whiff of it soon enough. In the mean time, we here in QJ are wondering: what’s your take on the “essence of Zelda”?
