IGN managed to chat with long-term Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma and Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity producer Yosuke Hayashi on the eve of the launch of the long-awaited Warriors game. The site was interested to see whether Nintendo had plans to make Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity its own standalone series which would work alongside future mainline Zelda games. Here’s Mr. Aonuma and Mr. Hayashi’s response.
“I do think circumstances could align like this again,” explained Eiji Aonuma, “but I don’t think we’re expecting this to become a series. We’d make that decision based on its creative merits, just like we did this time.”
“I think it depends on whether we get an idea that’ll make all the fans happy!”, added Hayashi.
