Legend of Zelda and the Mario franchise are two Nintendo classics and probably for many are the company's best sagas. Because of this, the new deliveries of these titles fail to capture the attention of players around the world year after year.
A phenomenon, such as Reggie Fils-Aime, the President and Chief Operating Officer of Nintendo of America, in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter attributed to the constant efforts to renew the developers who work with these titles.
"This is where I'm going to give credit to our game developers," said Fils-Aime. "I think the best example of this is Breath of the Wild. The Zelda franchise, which I love and is my favorite franchise of all the time, I had a formula for Zelda games. You went to a dungeon, you won a mini boss, you got a weapon that made it possible for you to move on to the next stage of the game, and then it continued. "
"The Breath of the Wild Development team opened all these conventions with a whole new design" he added. "You can start from the beginning and go and try to beat Ganon (…) Even in the weapon structure you can come forward and get new weapons, as was the former Zelda formula, but in the Breath of the Wild there are tons of weapons. The only problem is that they break. It's that kind of thinking to understand what's fundamental in the franchise. In this case, Link, Zelda, Hyrule's legends and constantly seek to renew and offer something new. . "
Fils-Aime added that this innovation was not only presented to the latter Zelda, but it is also a phenomenon that was replicated in Super Mario Odyssey.
"It's Zelda, it's Super Mario Odyssey, who constantly takes that approach," said Fils-Aime. "Therefore, these franchises last, and therefore, they become important products of each generation to experiment and share with others."
