Jaffe Wants God Of War IV To Adopt A "Zelda Formula?"
Well, this ought to incite plenty of discussion. Thing is, there are multiple ways to interpret the quote in question...
Recently, we heard a rumor that both God of War IV and Syphon Filter 4 will be officially announced next month. Last year, various sources reported snippets of information concerning GoWIV, and this included the information that multiplayer was imminent. But what does the original creator of the franchise think about the fourth installment?
David Jaffe and his new studio, Eat Sleep Play, are finishing up work on Twisted Metal and as Jaffe is no longer part of Sony Santa Monica, he won't have any say in how God of War IV turns out (at least, we don't think he will). At any rate, when asked what he'd like to see in the next entry, Jaffe replied on Twitter:
"@PSNztstyle Zelda formula, multiple mythologies, more nuance to Kratos."
There are plenty of ways to make a game better, even if it's as amazing as God of War III. Improvements, upgrades, and enhancements can be made and if Jaffe had his way, he'd want a more Zelda-like formula and perhaps a heavier emphasis on the character of Kratos. But what does that Zelda comment really mean...?
