Legendary Zelda developer Eiji Aonuma has said the next entry in the franchise will offer "more than just a single-player experience", leading to speculation multiplayer could soon appear in the franchise.
Speaking to Game Informer to promote the upcoming release of Hyrule Warriors, the video game veteran was asked whether the co-op gameplay in Dynasty Warriors' spin-off would be replicated in the next entry in the main series.
"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," he said. "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."
Though we only got our first look at the gameat this year's E3, Aonuma revealed Nintendo's Wii U Zelda game during an online presentation back in January 2013. A tech demo for Zelda HD was shown when Nintendo unveiled Wii U at E3 2011.
