Co-op in The Legend of Zelda is one of those things that sounds good on paper, but really doesn't seem to always take the best shape in reality. The latest multiplayer Zelda game, The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, wasn't necessarily a bad game, but it didn't quite live up to the high standards set by other game in the series. When it works, it really works, but the problem seems to stem from the variable that can't be controlled by the developers: other players.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be solely a single player experience, though it seems that multiplayer Zelda titles aren't off the table for future entries. Eiji Aonuma recently spoke with IGN on the topic, saying that he would still be interested in producing another multiplayer Zelda game based on what he's learned from producing Breath of the Wild. Here's what he had to say:
I would like to take what I learned from Breath of the Wild and see if we can somehow fuse those learning points into another multiplayer Zelda. For example, with Triforce Heroes, which followed a similar format of Four Swords, there was a multiplayer involved in that game. That's definitely a possibility and we will continue to [experiment] throughout the Zelda franchise.
