Multiplayer Coming to Zelda Wii U?

  • Admin

The Legend of Zelda has traditionally been a single player series, with the exception of Four Sword Adventures on the GameCube and it's re-releases. No main title in the series has included a multiplayer option. Is that about to change?

In a recent Game Informer interview, Eiji Aonuma hinted at the possibility of multiplayer coming to the future Zelda title.
The two-player functionality of Hyrule Warriors is actually something that has traditionally been done in the Dynasty Warriors series, but they’ve changed because of the hardware and the second screen on your GamePad. Instead of having a splitscreen on the television, you have one-player playing on the television and one on the GamePad. When I was talking back about making Zelda more than just a single-player experience? That’s something you will see in the future, maybe next year.​

While this could mean anything from Miiverse integration like we saw in Wind Waker HD to full blown Co-Op, nothing is off limits to Aonuma who has gone on record at wanting to try new things in the Zelda series.

What multiplayer options would you like to see in Zelda Wii U? Let us know!

I'd love to see something similar to the multiplayer that was in Wind Waker, using the GBA as a second controller to play as Tingle. In this case, the second player could use the Gamepad to play as an assistant character that could attack enemies, see the map and share hints, or whatever else.
