The Legend of Zelda Online FPS?

Wouldn’t that be great? Arguably the most popular video game franchise wandering into the realm of arguably the most popular genre? Well, it may not be as far-fetched as it seems. During a recent interview with the producer of The Legend of Zelda series, Eiji Anouma shared his feelings on a Link’s Crossbow Training sequel. He expressed how much he really liked the original Link’s Crossbow Training, and how he really would like to expand on that spin-off. He states:

“To tell you the truth, I actually wanted to create Link’s Crossbow Training 2. I thought that we should do something more and better in the field of the first person shooter, based on our experience of the first game. For example, I was thinking that maybe we could intensify the multiplayer mode. The original game was really just a solo game but I thought that we could add a true multiplayer mode with multiple users playing together, from remote areas, over the Wi-Fi Connection.”

It would be nice to see a game that was essentially a spin-off be put to use. Maybe one day… but right now Nintendo will probably play it safe. They seem to be in the trend of not venturing too far from formula. I’m talking about you Animal Crossing: City Folk.
