Great news Nation! The Legend of Zelda is progressing well according to series producer Eiji Aonuma, as he sat down with Famitsu to give an update on the often delayed and highly-anticipated open world title (via Kotaku). Check out the official update below:

“When we did Skyward Sword for the Wii, at the end stages of development, I was in charge of the characters’ dialogue and the in-game text. And, now as well, it’s like it was then. I had to work on text today, too, but, the game has really taken shape, and things have gotten easier. That means things are progressing well.”

Aonuma has promised a different direction with this title and his comments assure fans that this version of Zelda will be breaking new ground:

“I think the base of our secret sauce has always been Ocarina of Time. But this time, the change in flavor will be like going from Japanese food to Western style food. Perhaps, players will be surprised. Please look forward to it, because I think we’ll be able to make ‘something new’ like Ocarina of Time was.”

Nintendo has always had a knack for captivating audiences with their uniquely creative IP’s, even if they have stumbled somewhat frequently over the past few years as well. With fantastic gameplay and a creative team that has been knocking titles out of the park for years though, I for one, can’t wait for this new title.

So Nation, what do you think of this news? Are you excited for a new Zelda game or have the delays caused you to lose interest? Sound off in the comments below and keep it locked here to GeekNation for all your video game news.
