Future Zelda Games Might Not Necessarily Be At 60fps

zelda_link_between_worlds-656x369Gamers without doubt would love it if all their games could run at a silky smooth consistent 60fps. The good news is that the latest Zelda game, A Link Between Worlds, does run at 60fps much to the delight of gamers and Zelda fans everywhere, but if you were hoping that this is a trend that will carry on to future Zelda games, both new and possible remakes, don’t get your hopes up, at least that’s what the game’s director wants gamers to know. Speaking to Game Informer magazine (via Nintendo Everything), the game’s director, Hiromasa Shikata stated that despite A Link Between Worlds featuring 60fps, “This doesn’t mean that all future Zelda titles will run at 60 frames per second.”

Apparently the reason behind the 60fps frame rate in the game is because they wanted it to look “smooth” and “crisp”. According to Shikata, “It’s really the concept of the game that changes whether you want to keep the volume of information in the game low and running at 60 frames per second. We kept it at 60 to make the 3D look smooth, allow the players to clearly see enemy movements, and keep everything moving crisply as with previous games. This doesn’t mean that all future Zelda titles will run at 60 frames per second.” We guess this is somewhat disappointing, but at the same time previous Zelda games did not run at 60fps either and those were just as fun, so here’s hoping that future Zelda titles will be fun enough where players can overlook its frame rates.
