Zelda: Nintendo looking at ways to incorporate DLC into series

Friday, 14th June 2013 10:28 GMT By Dave Cook

The Legend of Zelda series has remained DLC-free for its colossal span, but that may well change moving forward according to series producer Eiji Aonuma, who is now looking at ways to offer add-on content moving forward.

Speaking with Nintendo Life, Aonuma said, “We’re certainly looking at different ways to add on content that would enhance the experience for the user – maybe more places to explore or just to enrich the experience beyond what is on the disc.

“But we also have to take into consideration that if we charge for this content then it needs to be worth it for the user. So it’s certainly a balancing an act, but I can’t say that it is something we’re not considering.”

What do you make of the above? Can DLC help expand the Zelda universe, or does it have no place in the series?

    Yupp, that is the Point. I’m not against DLC in General, but most DLC arn’t worth the Money. I hope you can pull this off well Nintendo, but that we will have to see.

    @1 and some DLCs lock like they should have bean in the game right from the start. And don’t forget about Capcom, DLC ON THE FUCKING DISC!

    Nintendo tbh is the only campany I trust to make a DLC that is worth the money. Sone how I allway have the feeling, nintendo still have the joy and the fun of games as a priority, and not only dollas $-$.

    Right EA?!

    I certainly wouldn’t mind this. This gives Ninty the ability to offer a steady release of Zelda content throughout the years until the next title in the series arrives.

    Yeah, a new island, area, or dungeon to explore would be totally worth it (for a reasonable price).

    It would also be interesting to see some more experimental DLC like, a “Zelda through the Ages” that gradually transitions from 8-bit top-down to U-quality 3D Zelda as you play through it, or a darker Zelda storyline around Halloween…I’m sure they can come up with some exciting stuff.
