Posted November 07, 2018 06:20:22 The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker is one of the best-selling video games of all time, with over 1.5 billion copies sold worldwide.
And this year, we’ll be getting another big update to the series.
The game is being called The Windwaker 2018.
It’s a free update that’s being rolled out across a number of different platforms, and there’s a big announcement in store.
IGN caught up with the team at Nintendo to talk about what to expect, the Zelda community’s response to the news, and what you can expect in the game’s upcoming DLC.
IGN: I’ve seen you guys do some of the major Zelda events.
What was the inspiration behind that?
We’ve had a number things come up in the past, like the The Wind’s Up!
It just kind of happened naturally.
We thought, “Hey, let’s make it happen again, and let’s do something with it.”
It’s like a celebration for a year of the series, and a way for people to come together.
We want to make it a very special one, so it’s kind of like an event that everyone can join in.
It was kind of a fun thing to do, but it’s also a big event for the community, and it’s one that we’ll definitely be doing again in 2018.
So, there’s plenty of stuff we can do in 2018, and we want to continue to make sure it’s something that everyone is excited about.
We also want to do some new content, too, and make sure we’ve got something that’s got a good story to it.
I guess we’re all on the same page about that.
It also ties into the Wind Wakers anniversary, so we’ll do a celebration, and then we’ll get the DLC as well.
The team will be doing some of these events, like The Wind Up!
[in-game], which is a special event, where people can have a special celebration of the anniversary of The Wind in the Willows.
We’re doing some stuff that we haven’t done before, and that we’ve always been very interested in, so that’s one of those things we’ll certainly be doing in 2018 that we’re really excited about and looking forward to.
The WindWaker 2018 is being rolled on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, so you’ll be able to play it on all three platforms at the same time.
IGN’s Josh Holmes: I’m really excited to hear that, and I’m not sure what to say, because we’ve heard so much from the community.
I think it’s cool to have something like this that people can come and play with their friends, and hopefully the other players will be as happy as they are.
It would also be cool if we had something to do with that.
I’m glad we’re able to share that.
That’s definitely something we’ll look forward to doing.
[laughs] So, what will we get in 2018?
We know we’ve been getting the most recent DLC in the form of The Adventurers, but I guess that’s kind to tease us with some new things.
It seems like we’ve kind of been getting a lot of stuff in the last couple of months, and some of that stuff we’ll probably get in the coming year.
But I know that we are working on a lot more stuff in 2018 in the Zelda universe, so I’m looking forward for that.
What can we expect from the DLC?
is going to be a really big thing for 2018.
We’ll be doing it in 2018 and doing a lot with it, and also have some DLC that will be released in 2019.
The Adventurer DLC is going, I think, to be very special.
It will be a DLC that’s really unique, and is something that I’ve never seen before, like something that you can only play with other players.
It is going be a great surprise.
The Anniversary DLC will be great.
That will be an amazing addition, especially for a fan of the game, because it’s going to get a lot bigger in 2018 with some of our other DLCs.
I know there are a lot coming in the next year that we can’t reveal, but we will be bringing that stuff.
I don’t know if you can say the Wind Up Up!
DLC has been a big part of the Zelda series, but will it be?
[laughs, laughs] Yeah, I know what you mean.
There’s going be that, but the Legend of the Wind is going the opposite direction, and the DLC is really cool for it, but what I think people will be really excited for is some DLC where it’s a brand-new story.
Like we said, the WindUp!, so I think the Anniversary DLC, I guess, will be another big surprise.
But yeah, that DLC
