If you’ve been following the recent monsoon of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild footage that has surfaced then you know that it is a massive game with tons of things to do. It’s so massive, in fact, that Nintendo is receiving help from a certain developer that is known for creating massive game worlds.
Nintendo has confirmed to Game Informer that Xenoblade Chronicles developer Monolith Soft is helping them bring the new Zelda game to life. Shigeru Miyamoto said the following:
“Yes they are involved in this Zelda. People from Tokyo and Kyoto are working together on this. There is a team of over 100 helping work on this project, and their work has really been helpful.”
Xenoblade Chronicles X was the last game that Monolith Soft developed, which launched exclusively for the Wii U last year. One of the game’s biggest praises was just how impressive its world was in both size and density, with the game also containing a couple hundred hours of gameplay for completionists.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is set to launch for Wii U and NX in 2017.
