Producer Eiji Aonuma, on the other hand, hinted of new "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" DLC as he talked about how the expansions allowed them build on the world without having to do a full-on sequel.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was an incredibly popular game and is sitting pretty high in Metacritic. This freedom has given Fujibayashi a kind of vigor to bring new content to the series, which could spark all kinds of interesting things for the next game (or DLC).
"I can't say at this point if it will be in sequels or in continuations, or what form it will take, but I definitely have lots of ideas and lots of motivation right now", Fujibayashi told IGN.
"I think while we were working on both the main game and the DLC, it was a process of constantly getting lots of different, new ideas as we refined the game, and finding new things we wanted to do". He even mentioned that something as little as finding out that players were really wanting to be able to simply pet the dogs found in-game ultimately became huge motivating factors for him.
Hard to expect revelations in a short time, the timing does not seem ripe for the presentation of a new Zelda, in any case, the confirmation of the fact that the works are underway is undoubtedly a positive news.
"In the past, we always had to start from zero again, to completion. But because we did a DLC, we realized it's a great way to kind of just improve that world, and kind of enhance it, and kind of raise it like your own child". Nintendo usually do not announce their games early so we could see the game next year followed by a launch in 2019.
