"To tell you the truth, I actually wanted to create Link's Crossbow Training 2," he told gamesTM in an interview. "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".
The "more" he wanted was an expanded multiplayer mode, but Nintendo would have none of it. "The fact of the matter is that a lot of people inside Nintendo insisted that I should work on a new Legend Of Zelda title rather than working on more Crossbow Training".
Hey, Aonuma. Back to work.
