Eiji Aonuma on Why Hero Mode is Locked in A Link Between Worlds
Many know that A Link Between Worlds features a Hero Mode just like several previous iterations of Zelda games; however, we know now why the Hero Mode is not available from the beginning of the game like The Wind Waker HD. Coming from Eiji Aonuma...
"With The Wind Waker HD we naturally expected many people to have played the previous version, so we made the harder Hero mode available from the beginning. However, although it is a sequel, this time we have a brand new game. We felt that it was more suitable to have the players first enjoy the game at an appropriate difficulty level and then let them try a harder challenge."
