No, it’s not Tingle RPG. Aonuma reveals to EGM some information about what to expect in the Zelda DS title. Some of it is restating what we know, but there’s some other interesting tidbits.
This is a basic reiteration of what we already know, but confirms a few things. It’s not a Four Swords game, it’s not made by Capcom, Aonuma is handling this game personally and the touch screen will play a large part.
“What I can tell you is that it’s going to use the touch screen for a very unique control system that people have never experienced in a Zelda game before,” is what Aonuma had to say on that. He continued saying, “I think one of the important elements of the Zelda series has always been that you feel like you’re in the world doing the things that Link is doing and touching the things that Link is touching. This time you’ll be able to use the touch screen and actually touch those items and objects yourself.”
What we’re looking at here could be a new Zelda experience unlike handheld Zelda games we have been exposed to in the past. The level of interaction will allow gamers to immerse theirselves into the game more than previous experiences. Hopefully this just doesn’t imply making the bottom screen a simple item selection screen.
