Aonuma on the Sapce World 2000 Zelda Demo - "This isn't Zelda at all."
We recently reported about Aonuma's statement regarding cut dungeons from The Wind Waker and now we have another statement from the IGN interview regarding the Space World 2000 Zelda GCN trailer that revealed an Ocarina of Time inspired art style and Aonuma's opinion on it. He said, "No, this isn't Zelda," and that he thought it "was more like a continuation of the previous version." Eiji Aonuma did not like it at all and wanted to make something entirely new, which later became Toon Link. You can check out full quotes after the break...
"I saw that movie and I thought, "No, this isn't Zelda. This isn't Zelda at all," I felt like this wasn't what I imagined Zelda to be. It wasn't the Zelda I wanted to make. That video clip didn't actually contain any big surprises. There wasn't any kind of revelation going on. It was more like a continuation of the previous version. Yeah, that's right. I wasn't interested in it at all."
