Eiji Aonuma Explains Why Zelda: Breath of the Wild Features Partial Voice Acting

Zelda Breath of the WildAs we all know the Zelda series is known for not having voice acting in any of the games so far. But yet the first thing you hear in the Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a Voiced Character, which was mind blowing! Many people are asking though, why are they doing partial voice acting (not everyone will be voiced, especially not Link) now of all times? Well Eiji Aonuma has spoken as to why he felt  Partial Voice Acting should be added to Zelda:

“It’s really difficult to leave an impression on players with just text, it’s not that I made everything voiced. But I have these moments where I want to leave impressions on users. I add voice there”. Aonuma also expanded further by saying that the first time he heard a character with a human voice it “touched his heart and was really striking emotions.”

So there you have it, plain text just isn’t enough to get across the emotional message Nintendo is trying to convey with this new Zelda game. If you follow GameXplain you know that this is very close to their reason that they wanted Voice Acting in Zelda… Nintendo Ninjas confirmed! Anyways, what do you guys think about the partial Voice Actin in Breath of the Wild? Let me know in the comments below:
