Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has told Official Nintendo Magazine that collecting rupees will be very important in The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds.
In an exclusive interview which appears in the new issue of Official Nintendo Magazime, Aonuma discussed his working relationship with Miyamoto, Wind Waker HD and A Link Between Worlds.
On the subject of A Link Between Worlds, Aonuma said: "Collecting rupees, the currency of the Zelda world, will be very important in this game. You might think that was the case with all the past games too, but I must say that this time it will be more important than ever and you will need to collect a great deal of them."
So why do you need to collect so many rupees? Aonuma wouldn't tell us more but could it have something to do with the shop, a screenshot for which was displayed on Miiverse following the latest Nintendo Direct?
Aonuma explained that the shop - manned by a Nabbit lookalike - will be a very important place in A Link Between Worlds as it is different from past stores in the games?
He said: "Shops in the past Zelda games sold things that would run out once you use them like arrows and bombs, items that needed replenishing. They have never sold an item that doesn't go away after each use like the boomerang or the hookshot."
Will you have to collect lots of rupees to buy these items? Hopefully Aonuma will reveal more soon.
