As announced the other day, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is on the cover of Game Informer this month, which means the game is getting month-long online coverage on the magazine’s website. There will be various features, covering the following topics:
- how the game truly re-examines the Zelda formula
- plenty of details about the new dungeons
- what’s in store for the future of 2D Zelda games
- Eiji Aonuma’s favorite Zelda games
- and more…
For the latest update, Game Informer shares Eiji Aonuma’s Top 3 Zelda games, and also reveals which one he thinks is the most underrated.
At #3, we have The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, because he tried to make a game that would be even better than the legendary Ocarina of Time.
At #2, we have… well, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Eiji Aonuma explains that it’s beause it’s a game that gave him the opportunity to create a 3D world.
And at #1, we have… The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. This may seem like a rather odd choice, but there’s actually a good reason it ranks first in Eiji Aonuma’s Top 3. Basically, with this game, he proposed a new style of gameplay (with the stylus), and it was the very first time he was producer, so he has a lot of sentiment for it.
Finally, the one Zelda game he thinks is the most underrated is… The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, as he really wish players had played it a bit more. It’s, in fact, a game he does love a lot.
