The Bomber’s Notebook was used to keep track of sidequests on the original Nintendo 64 version of the game, but according to Nintendo’s Eiji Anouma, the company plans to make it more detailed in order to help players get a grasp on what’s going on in-game.
“We were told by Mr. Miyamoto that he felt there were a lot of users who finished the original without even noticing all the hidden events scattered around the town. He said that he wanted us to make sure users were more aware of them this time around.”
Regarding the reasoning behind the original game’s vague details, Anouma explained “When the game was launched, I believed that the real purpose was for players to overcome this pressure and experience a sense of achievement. On a portable console, users don’t have to choose when or where they play, they can keep on playing the game whenever they want. I think this should allow all users to enjoy that special sense of achievement.”
Nintendo has already stated that it will be altering the learning curve of the game for new players in hopes to making the game more accessible.
