Zelda Wii U is set “in an open world without barriers”

If any of us thought The Legend of Zelda A Link Between Worlds meant big changes for the future of the Zelda franchise with all the different ways the game changed up the formula from any and all past games in the franchise with the ability of renting items during the adventure and using that to have freedom in how you chose to attempt dungeons. if that was the case then we should definitely be expecting big things with the upcoming Zelda game for the Wii U, during E3 we were told that Zelda U is set to provide a whole lot more freedom then past Zelda games with an entire world and beyond to explore freely, in a place that I only can feel is reminiscent of Skyrim or Kingdoms of Amalur. Outside all the information we have previously known a small little blurb has appeared on the Japanese Nintendo website which holds a little bit of details about the upcoming Zelda game on the Wii U.

It states, “In an endless world without barriers, the biggest one in the series yet, Link will encounter new mysteries and tough enemies”. On another note some have also slightly mistranslated some of what the blurb says and have reported a new villain will also appear.

Either way it is good to know the world will be all about freedom and I can explore as I see fit, I also hope that this freedom carries over to the dungeons as well and we get to visit dungeons in any order we see fit. But I still wouldn’t care if the dungeons were scripted and had to be accomplished in this specific order as the world itself is full of new adventure for me to take on and challenging new puzzles that go along with it and I can’t wait.
