Nintendo is hard at work on a brand new Zelda game for the Wii U. And while Wind Waker is great and will keep us busy until then, everyone is excited to see what Nintendo has in store for us. According to Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma, Nintendo aims not just to satisfy fans with the new Zelda, but to create a something unique that goes beyond what people expect. As part of the new Prima Guides Zelda box set, Aonuma signed a certificate of authenticity with these words to fans: “It has been 25 years since The Legend of Zelda was introduced to the world, and it is still going strong. This was made possible by the fans who love the series. In the next installment, it is my desire to create a unique experience that is beyond your expectations. We are privileged to have your unwavering support.” We haven’t heard much about the new Zelda game for the Wii U, only that it’s in development. According to various reports, we won’t be seeing it until 2015. Until then, Nintendo has a strong lineup of first party Wii U games for 2014, including Mario Kart 8, Bayonetta 2, and Super Smash Bros U, which is rumored for release in April 2014. local_offer Nintendo wii u zelda wii u stars Further Reading A photo of Nintendo’s first office in 1 Nintendo loses patent appeal, ordered to pay Dáibhí wotshissurname Fingers crossed for announcement soon, guys… jjbredesen December the 7th baby! http://iftodayisyourbirthday.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/december7.gif Tim van Broekhoven Omg I can’t wait! The Clockwork Being My bets aren’t on Zelda for that day but for something else. I’m more hoping for Miyamoto’s new IP. Daniel Gonzalez Pikmin spin off. jjbredesen Yeah i agree, but we don’t know if his new IP is a “muture” hardocore ip like Metroid and Zelda or a more “casual” ip like Mario or kirby. So depending on what the IP is it may not be shown at VGX. I don’t think Miyamoto is a huge fan of VGX, but whatever they show i can’t wait. I am hoping for a new Metroid, Star Fox or F-Zero but i know that Metroid has just started development, or will start when Retro is done with DKCTF, as for Star Fox i have no idea what they are thinking and F-Zero has not been seen since the Gamecube, but thats just me hoping… Zorpix what happens Dec 7th? Isn’t there a direct or something? EDIT: That’s right, the Spike thing. If SPIKE, the dudebroest of dudebro channels is hosting a Nintendo announcement, it must be big The Clockwork Being VGX Spike awards. Reggie said that Nitendo will be there and they have something for us. Zorpix Yup I googled it and edited my comment 😛 I remember hearing about it, just not the date The Clockwork Being Ah yes and I assume you are very excited. My expectations aren’t really high but seeing how Reggie was taking it my expectations are a little higher. Zorpix I’m kinda… excited, but reserved… I dont know what to expect XD The Clockwork Being Exactly! Magnus Eriksson Probably a new NSMBU DLC. This time 80 new levels featuring Toad. 50 sec long levels. Or the new Barbie Game. Lord Carlisle You don’t honestly think that. Magnus Eriksson No, not honestly. But Im afraid to hype myself up with the Wii U. So, better to lower the expectations. Lord Carlisle That’s definitely the better way of thinking, but I can’t help but hype myself up for a Zelda reveal on the 7th. The Clockwork Being Magnus or even a DLC about Princess Peach with 80 new levels BUT with 30 sec long levels! That or maybe just MAYBE the Glorious CD-i Zelda games. Magnus Eriksson Backward edition? That way they dont have to make new stages. Squid No, the DLC will be Nabbit’s robbery adventure. Jon I…. would actually play that because it sounds awesome. lol jjbredesen Yup there must be shown a hardcore nintendo game, they can’t show a new kirby at something like VGX it will be Zelda or M-sans new IP. Eiji Aonuma We have something that we can show off now, however we still need the approval of Satoru-San before we can do anything. baro93 Wise words Magnus Eriksson Holiday season 2016 X3Charlie I finished WWHD and ALBW. I need more! Sydney Ultrasyd The reason why I bought a Wii U, of course it will be awesome ! NintenScience Hello! Dáibhí wotshissurname Hello to you too. How are you today? I know, let’s have tea! What time, 5pm? No, wait, I have Snooker at that time. You know, I like snooker becaus of the accur… NintenScience What? Guest WHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAT LLLLLLL i luv fod u three NintenScience What?? Guest HAHAAHHAAH WUT? Do u evn science friands jjbredesen I tipped this article and no credit again? Well i hope he impresses me and i can’t wait for the game 🙂 CEObrainz Can’t wait either, there are many paths this new Zelda takes, hopefully it’s one I don’t expect. jjbredesen Yeah i am really excited! and i have honestly got no clue what we are going to get all i know is that it will be amazing! (I hope) I need a new game to play i have just finished OOT for the 25th time 🙂 and i am currently playing Minish cap for the first time. Only game i have not tried is sadly and i am ashamed to say A link to the past… Can’t wait!! CEObrainz Yep, although there are things I want to see such as Epona and an Hyrule full of life. jjbredesen Yeah i would like Epona to be used more in new ways and a HUGE overworld i am talking world of warcraft huge!! With loads of enemies and dungeons, that are creative and hard to beat, with creative challenges. The recent zeldas have been to easy i want a challenge! CEObrainz That would be great, like some random dungeon mechanic that’s used in a long side quest. Also loads more dungeons although some should be shorter then others, and lastly more interaction with NPC’s, akin to Majora’s Mask. Sdudyoy Call me crazy but Minish cap is my favorite 2D Zelda game, I love the rest of them but there’s something about Minish cap that I love. CEObrainz Hopefully this title alone will justify my purchase of a Wii U, but then again there are a tons of games I want already and I don’t have enough money to buy them all, then those that haven’t been released and I want to save for. Funkee Dynamite ya man, so many games on my list to buy still then on top of that 2014!! AAAkabob If it’s even better than Link Between Worlds my head might explode CEObrainz I recon it will be, as A Link Between Worlds seems to be a testing ground for some features they hope to implement on this title. At least that’s what a few articles a while back said. Magnus Eriksson Oh man… Im so afraid that they will take it in that direction. I love Zeldas the way they are, and is scared shit on news like this. But if there is a guy who can pull it off, its this guy. But I would prefer a 3D Zelda without too much new stuff… Squid I love that game, but I do hope the camera angle is different in this game. lonewolf88 EVERYONE STAND UP! HYPE! HYPE! HYPE! HYPE! HYPE! rp17 Um… when can i sit back down? Daniel Gonzalez Never. Nookling I live to hear him say this. That is really brave of him because we all have HUGE expectations. If it exceeds mine then I will he really happy! With the power of the Wii u I expect a giant game. Eiji Aonuma I can assure you this new game will be a unique entry into the Zelda Franchise. We had to break the conventions whilst developing this game and look deep within the history of Zelda to explore the non-ventured gameplay styles that we could offer with the Wii U Gamepad. Simon Stevens All aboard!! http://i2.minus.com/j5XK39C7lHBic.jpg NintenScience Shinkansen Zorpix 新幹線 Guest Come on. That is not the Nintendo hype train. This is: NintenScience xd Magnus Eriksson Thats not the Nintendo hype train. This is: http://themommygamers.com/wp-content/uploads/Ep9_TrainWreck-570×398.jpg WolfgangAmadeusMozart No, that is Microsoft’s Hype Train when they unveiled the Xbox One. NintenScience rofl Magnus Eriksson Yeah, sorry for that. I see the XBox logo now. That was not a Nintendo train. Here is one: http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs21/f/2007/248/1/8/Tog_by_erlwes.jpg Daniel Gonzalez Hahaha NintenScience FailBox One NintenScience lmao Squid That’s not the Ouya train? Daniel Gonzalez The Pachter train is the lonely one in the background. Poor guy. Magnus Eriksson No, that train cart is loaded with all Nintendos great innovations like the Power Glove, Virtual Boy, R.O.B and the Wii U Pad 🙂 Daniel Gonzalez Let’s not forget the Famicom and N64 Disk add ons. Squid I was going to say that was the EA train. Daniel Gonzalez I should’ve went with that. Quite sure Pachter has some love from Nintendo fans. NintenScience loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool DarkLegacy He’s more than likely crashed or gone off track lol Daniel Gonzalez Was he ever on track? DarkLegacy I think he just came off the track, because he was looking at the 3 trains DragonSilths Like the gaming industry was supposed to do? (Crash and go off track) NintenScience http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_American_video_game_crash_of_1983 DragonSilths I know. I was just pointing out people being wrong before. iamserious Ooo who?? Ducked I like to compare Xbox One to a building… http://imageshack.us/a/img7/9670/1370840356116zps12f0458.gif NintenScience BrickBox One Daniel Gonzalez Gabe really looks happy with the weight of his success. DarkLegacy And I’ll start to think this http://a.pomf.se/xe8cd.gif Rinslowe The company you keep, lol. Daniel Gonzalez Happens at most launches. It’s kinda funny to watch when it’s broadcast on the news. NintenScience http://ps4daily.com/2013/12/playstation-4-launch-mayhem-hits-germany-video/ DarkLegacy That’s funny when it’s on the news. That’s mainly what makes me laugh lol Daniel Gonzalez Same. I prefer to wait until after launches to buy a console of my choice. Too many people out there who would mug or even try to murder you over one. Lol. DarkLegacy I’d do the same thing too. Buy a console later because there are a lot of people at launch who just rush in for one CEObrainz That’s actually hilarious to watch, I can imagine a group of people/friends coming up with a game plan to reach the consoles first. DarkLegacy Agreed. I would normally buy a console later, because there are a lot of people at launch that just rush in for one and mug it or even try to murder you for one Daniel Gonzalez When dealing with console launches, it becomes The Hunger Games. Ducked LOL! DarkLegacy I think I might and should’ve brought a PS4 later, because at launch there are a lot of people that rush in stores to buy a console. And buying a console later is alright Ducked I’m waiting to buy mine next fall. DarkLegacy When FFXV comes out, then you’ll buy one? Ducked Probably, I think FFXV comes out next fall DarkLegacy We will find out next year at E3. The reason why I said E3 was because SE didn’t confirm XV at Jump Festa, but they confirmed that 2.5 HD will be playable at Jump Festa val berger same here. PS4 has to build a solid userbase so companies can start creating more creative software for it. until then it’s gonna be streamlined mainstreamcrap for the EA target audience that won’t be worth buying this system. DragonSilths That’s a lot of hassle over a system that could break on you… DarkLegacy This happens always at launch. It’s probably why fans buy a console later because at launch, people rush in stores to get one Daniel Gonzalez So this is why there were system failures during launch. Nice job people. Yousif Alromaithi Thats freaking awesome. Man these people are nuts. DarkLegacy Happens at launch when a console is releaesd Rinslowe We can easily say why some PS4’s have been defective. But what’s their excuse? DarkLegacy Bricked Rinslowe At birth, lol DarkLegacy It’s probably a reason why we should buy consoles later rather than buying them at launch Jack5221 The 1st two guys got lucky skipping the brawl. Lol! Jack5221 LOL!!! iamserious LOL!!! That’s a huge turd! Rinslowe That used car salesman look takes the cake! Even more so than a giant turd in the background, lol. Classic, classic MS. seyedsadegh however i don’t like xbox one almost , but please don’t put contumely images val berger XBox already outsold the WiiU. So I would be more careful when chosing my words ;D And no, I’m far from being an XBone fan, but people tend to live in a strange mushroom-inspired dreamworld these days. The same people are predicting the WiiU to SKYROCKET every moment since forever. getting sick & tired. get real and get a wiiU if you guys really do care that much. and if you already got one, then this actually shows of your minority. So if you’re really brave fanboys, you should probably consider buying another WiiU. Jake Dougherty Yeah it outsold it but that doesn’t make it superior whatsoever. We aren’t talking sales here pal. val berger the truth is somewhere in between. sure, I wouldn’t exchange my wiiu for 100 XBox Ones. Or maybe I would to sell them and buy a WiiU then again. But in all objectivity, Nintendo really messed it up and it’s just completely weird to see Nintendofans who claim XBox-Fans would be overhyped. I really don’t like the whole concept of the XBox One, but I actually do understand and tolerate others who do, as it’s quite a piece of technology that manages to stand out and polarize, which is kinda unexpected in streamlined times like these. I could totally live with the idea of the XBox One being the competition to Sony and Nintendo, so what? This whole childish bullshit is just wasting webtraffic and time. WolfgangAmadeusMozart “XBox already outsold the WiiU.” You completely missed the point, when they unveiled the system they failed miserably and the system received so much hate. Many people changed their mind when they started showing games and reversed all their policies (DRM, kinect required, 24 hour online connection, etc.), but that still the doesn’t change the past. val berger didn’t miss that point at all. actually I reached that point 6 months earlier and shared the same thoughts. but now went on, as the system isn’t doing so bad after all. I don’t like it either, but that doesn’t change the fact that nintendo would be superglad if their marketing & hype was at least half as good as microsofts. I don’t really think it’s very wise to complain about what they did as a Nintendo-Fan. Microsoft messed things up, but look at the state of the WiiU. Back in Summer, most Nintendo-Evangelists claimed the XBox One would be doomed and after Pikmin, Zelda and Mario the WiiU would SKYROCKET (my personal Anti-Word of 2013) and leave EVERYTHING BEHIND. Lol, take a look at U now ;D Rinslowe No, that one is the metrolink in Chatsworth. iamserious LMAO!!! Yousif Alromaithi Nice picture dude. lonewolf88 so your pretty much saying you want us to die i think you have a issue. Googs You’re a sick fucking bastard, making fun of people that died. WolfgangAmadeusMozart Looks like you took the wrong train, the right one is over here Deadpool U Trains? That’s cute I’d rather take a Hype PLANE! Mario Deadpool, when will your insanity end? Deadpool U That’s the best part. NEVER! Simon Stevens The hype continues! Deadpool U Yes it does! Simon Stevens note the butthurt xbot fan boys in the background, long live Nintendo! NintenScience roflmfao smguk XB1 sold 170,000 units in 48 hours in the UK and its taken Nintendo a year to sell 150,000 units Lol Simon Stevens http://www.troll.me/images/red-foreman322/youre-a-faggot.jpg smguk Ha what a sad pathetic little cunt that can’t handle the truth go back to cuddling your mario teddy you prick Simon Stevens Man your sensitive, lose your lipstick?, if your gonna act like a bitch you should look like a bitch 🙂 smguk Posting childish images nice comeback try growing some brain cells if you can’t handle facts grow up Simon Stevens Nobody wants to hear that bs on a wii u forum, fuck your sales chart and play some games, tosser smguk Is that a picture of your retarded face ha you look way too old to be posting childish little pictures what a fucking looser Simon Stevens oh no, you put boo boos on my feelings, my retarded troll face laughs at the fact that you can’t take jokes, lighten up shit head 😀 Mario LOL! Richard Collard I’d like to take a ride on that train. Let’s see if Zelda for Wii U can beat Majora’s Mask and Skyward Sword for my favorite Zelda games! If it does, then I’ll probably play it more than any other game. MM holds the title for that currently. Antar Rodríguez bayonetta 2, mario kart 8, monolithsoft´s X, smash bros, zelda u and people still think there is no reason to buy a wii U Josiah Parsons Well, those aren’t out yet. Come E3, TONS of people will suddenly see the reason to buy a Wii U. The Clockwork Being Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem man dont forget that one!! Alot of people are anticipating that game! Squid Yoshi’s yarn exists too. I loved Kirby’s epic yarn. DragonSilths Yoshi Land U* Magnus Eriksson Those games are not here yet. So until then it might be little reason to buy the Wii U today. Antar Rodríguez i never specified time, besides there is zombie u , mario 3d world, zelda ww, and some good not exclusive games like assasins creed 3 & 4 batman arkham series, cod so there you go, those are good reasons to buy it today Magnus Eriksson For some maybe, or rather the few. But for most thats obviously not the case. Antar Rodríguez well we certanly dont know if it was cause of the games or cause of the poor marketing efforts this last year but keep in mind that there are reasons to buy it, and nintendo has the way to turning things around Magnus Eriksson Hehe, you dont need to sell me one. I already own it. My concern is just about if others think its enough reason to buy it. Yes, the marketing was horrible. What was Nintendos plan really? Wildman I think they wanted to see if it could advertize for itself by word of mouth. They wanted to get folks talking. They sure did, but not in all the ways they expected. Rinslowe Maybe not, but Super Mario 3D World definitely is! I’m loving it more than I ever did Galaxy 2. And it’s getting up there with Galaxy… Can’t wait to get back to HK, and back to my family – playing Mario, golden. Magnus Eriksson Yup, agree 100%. Its more fun than Galaxy (and that was fun too). DragonSilths Spend $300 now then let your wallet build up money. Or spend $300 later and like $240 on 4 games the same day? May as well buy a Wii U now and have it out of the way so you let your wallet recover for whats to come. Magnus Eriksson Maybe. There are good games now that can justify it, depending on what you like. I have a Wii U with Zombi U, Nintendo Land, NSMBU, NSLU, Assassins Creed 3, Tekken Tag, Mario 3D World, Zelda Wind Waker, Darksiders IIfor example. If you take Pikmin 3, W101 etc together with that I guess you could say its a decent collection (I have some 50 Wii games, a couple of hundred VC, Wii Ware and Indies too). So yeah, it could be justified I guess. DragonSilths Don’t forget Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. RyuNoHadouken i love how Ninkiddos always talk about the same line-up of games that arent even out or nowhere near out yet…lol Antar Rodríguez lol i love how ninhaters dont even know what to post anymore to get some attention RyuNoHadouken i own all systems, but i come here to lol at you mindless fanboys Antar Rodríguez great keep coming so we can lol at you too, i own all consoles too but i dont go as low as you by criticising other consoles or other games i dont like, as simple as keeping your mouth shut RyuNoHadouken i speak the real…i know, its hard to accept, but it makes you feel so much better when you can learn to live life politically incorrect Antar Rodríguez yeha you keep telling yourself that Mario Looking forward to it. darkcreap Great!!! Justagamer Awesome is all that is really needed to be said Madmagican Wow, I literally just saw this on the forums a couple hours ago ‘course anything zelda is always met with frothing mouths and anticipation CEObrainz Yep….frothing right here…. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TURI6iDdbac Daniel Gonzalez A Skyrim type of Zelda is about the only thing that would make me change my mind about the Zelda series. I was never a fan of it, but if it wen’t that direction. Sign me up. Oh, and hopefully it it’ll have that Zelda HD look to it back at E3. 😛 Nintedward ALBW is pretty darn fantastic so far for me. I hope the Wiiu game can be as good or even better! Guest @Nintedward:disqus!!!! Daniel Gonzalez @Guest!!!! NintenScience lol darkcreap Yep. I bought the special edition 3DS (golden and black) for it. It is awesome. Never seen such a great Zelda game in years. Magnus Eriksson Its even better than the game its modeled on. John Andalora Neat. However, I’m gonna keep my comments to a minimum, as I officially sold my Wii U today. Hope he likes this game more than I would’ve. Daniel Gonzalez Brace yourself for the large amount of possible hate. Not that you’re breaking a sweat over it. NintenScience xd Rinslowe Sheesh lighten up! Look around – there are no haters here, possible or otherwise. Lol. Just have a good time. 🙂 Daniel Gonzalez Lighten up? You turned me on. Rinslowe You my man are very welcome! And I mean that to all of “you”; both singular and plural 🙂 John Andalora I probably will get a lot of hate, but I sold it to a friend who I think will enjoy it a lot more than I ever could. He was very excited about the whole thing, and told me about which games he couldn’t wait for. If people hate me for thinking that it’d be better for someone else to get more entertainment out of the bloody thing than me, it’s their problem. Magnus Eriksson Shame on you tricking your friend to buy this flawed and failed product. What when he realize that you fooled him? Rinslowe It’s when one realises they’ve fooled themselves, lol. http://politicalhumor.about.com/library/blbushism-foolme.htm John Andalora Well, in that sense, then the cycle will continue of selling it to someone else for less than the cost of getting it until someone either likes it or destroys it. Until then, we just sit back and enjoy the ride. Magnus Eriksson wise words NintenScience lol Ducked I’m guessing the new Legend of Zelda game will be in for a release in 2015 Daniel Gonzalez More than likely. Magnus Eriksson 2016 Daniel Gonzalez Maybe even 2017. Magnus Eriksson If its that late I think it must have been pushed back. But my guess is honestly late 2015- late 2016. It depends on what they do to it. If its a 3D game in the spirit of its forerunners, my guess is 2016. Are they going for a pseudo-new-remake-game, than its possible its earlier as in 2014. If they are downplaying 3D and instead choses to do something like ALTTP/ALBW, then 2015. My guess is that if they will do something much more cost effectiv, then 2015. Albert Lucero Jr Let’s hope not. A big reason for Wii U’s struggles is due to game delays. They can’t do that in 2014 or they will sabotage their own system. I plan on getting a Wii U as soon as Zelda comes out. I’m hoping they make it great as they keep saying. The rest of the 2014 looks great as well as long as they don’t delay any of the games. Rinslowe I think they could easily hold onto Zelda for 2015. Next year has Donkey Kong, Kart 8, Smash and X for first party titles. X on it’s own will likely satisfy the majority of RPG fans like myself for a good portion of the year. Assuming it’s released at the end of Q2/ beginning of Q3 and especially if it has online multiplayer. I believe that and some third party support makes it a pretty robust 2014 already, no? Bayonetta 2, Watchdogs, Project Cars, Fast Racing Neo… Albert Lucero Jr Let’s say they do push Zelda back to 2015 which is not a bad thing if and that’s a big IF Nintendo doesn’t delay any games. That is also very important because that would mean that Smash would most likely need to be released in either November or December of 2014 for the huge Holiday season since Mario Kart might be released in early to middle part of the year. If no delays happen than yes it could be successful but if games get delayed than that will kill any momentum for the Wii U. Rinslowe Agreed. Nintendo need to stay on a prompt 2014 schedule with the titles already slated for release next year. Maintaining the positive momentum of their recent titles, especially SM3DW is paramount to Wii U’s success. Zelda will slay the market, either way. But that doesn’t lessen the importance of 2014 for Wii U overall. Ducked So you’re saying you think the new Legend of Zelda game will be out next year? Albert Lucero Jr They have hinted that it’s further along than anticipated. Nintendo needs a great Zelda game for the 2014 Holiday season. If Nintendo has Zelda, Mario Kart and Smash out in 2014 along with Donkey Kong, X, Bayonetta and Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem than the Wii U will take off in sales but Zelda has to be a part of that for the Holiday. In my opinion Kart should be released in March or April and Smash should be released in June or July to keep the momentum going. Ducked I just can’t see it being out next year, it seems to soon. Nintendo will have some other games for the holiday season, Smash Bros, Yoshi, and another unannounced game. It be great for Nintendo to have the new LoZ out by next year, but I can’t see it happening. 00EpicGamer00 There is a high possibility that it could be out next year. For instance, I remember Miyamoto saying that the game will be released in 2014, a while back, when the whole “Zelda tech demo” was new and stuff. Also, (I don’t remember the exact year, but) I believe they started production on this new Zelda in 2012…..so if 2014 is the due date, that’d mean Zelda will be in production for 3 years. And I remember Aonuma saying that he wants to create Zelda games in 3 years, instead of the usual 4. Ducked I remember hearing it be out 2014, but that was over a year ago. Nintendo is working hard on the next Smash Bros, and currently finishing up on Mario Kart 8. (which are the biggest sellers) Not counting Yarn Yoshi, and Fire Emblem crossover. Maybe we’re get a new Metroid, or another HD remaster game. But I wouldn’t expect a 2014 release.. majora :D I’d rather have it in 2016. Masterpieces take long to produce. Albert Lucero Jr Well that would depend on when they started making. In my opinion Nintendo can’t afford for it to come out that late. If they can have all the games I mentioned come out in 2014 along with watchdogs and possibly some 3rd party support and than surprise us with maybe Metroid, Star Fox and FZero for 2015 than Nintendo would be sitting much better. Rinslowe Is it too much to ask for just one little teaser trailer? (stares out of window… and lets imagination run wild). Magnus Eriksson of course not. Here is a new screenshot: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-zM0zovl17LM/T08CrGX7ZLI/AAAAAAAADSI/arMPCoCoXO4/s400/cdi%2Blink1.jpg Rinslowe I’m in mainland China right now – can’t open the link (no pun intended) or see the pic. No VPN, on this old laptop either. Tell me what I was supposed to be looking at. lol. 🙂 majora :D CD-i Zelda Rinslowe Never underestimate the power of a crappy laptop and the great firewall of China, lol. I’ve been spared. Daniel Gonzalez Wii U will be doomed if that game hits the console. JB … but those graphics though… Lol WolfgangAmadeusMozart Mah boi, the King is returning in HD ! http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/jvVe6oT0z0Q/maxresdefault.jpg Albert Lucero Jr Or even an image of what art direction they will be using.. Rinslowe I’d be lying if I didn’t say that my wonder is equaled by my nervous anticipation on that topic, lol. I’m sure it’ll be great and for what it’s worth I’m sold without proof. It’s just that I also hope whatever art style they choose, it’s one that also appeals to a mass audience for Wii U’s success. nf_zeta The thing about these short sentences that gives me more hype than when any other company says it is that Nintendo usually actually delivers on what they say. josh I’ve been following the series since i was 8. I’ll be 29 when this comes out.. this sucks.. I hope the wait is worth it. As much as i liked windwaker, I think i’ll officially retire if they come out with another cartoony, maybe fruity looking zelda game. Nevermind the gameplay.. im sure it will be great. RyuNoHadouken i hear ya…im 35..have beaten every Zelda game besides SkywardSword…never played it because the graphics weren’t pleasing to my eyes and the prologue i read didnt excite me…enough with this cartoon crap…gimme a life-like Zelda game with ultra realistic graphics!!!! NintenScience http://www.zeldauniverse.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/Zelda-Wii-U.png Azure PLEASE Link: faces of evil 2 NintenScience No. Azure Alright i’ll settle for Wand of Gamelon 2 NintenScience Wii U/PS4 master race DarkLegacy Xbox one low master race loooool NintenScience xd companyoflosers they really should have touched on the next wii u zelda at the last e3. honestly i expected at least a mention. by now though i wish we could at least see some concept art or a clip. just give me something visual nintendo, anything. id even take just the title! GameBoy1979 Hopefully Nintendo has secretly been hard at work finalizing an actual playable Zelda U game that will be available for sometime sooner than 2015; maybe even early 2014. As much as I want a great game & appreciate careful attention to detail, aesthetic, & playability, this is the ONE game that I have waited on up until this point with the most anticipation & wish they would double the development team so we can get the game sooner, haha! I can’t take it much longer!!! DragonSilths Just an idea, but let me know what you guys think about it. For each Temple, the item you get at the end of each Dungeon after beating the boss is what Link needs, however Link himself cannot go into these Temples. Only the chosen Sages can. For example: Fire Temple – You play as a Goron. Water Temple – You play as a Zora. Forest Temple – You play as a Deku Sprout. Light Temple – You play as Zelda. Not sure about the other temples, lol. Re-dead for the Shadow Temple…lol. Damian Waga I really hope they take the visuals to a Majoras Mask/Twilight Princess theme mixed with the smooth, fantastic animations we saw at the CGI reveal of Mega Man (Basically final fantasy animations) Luciano Ok,waiting for next Nintendo Direct and more info in 2014 Rocky I would like to see a Zelda M.M.O game for Nintendo. Male or Female Link; from the early link, young link, toon link, twilight link and so on. This could perhaps be better than Final fantasy online haha. C4 “Female Link” Why not Zelda? 🙂 Geoffrey Tasker It’s not the new zelda they already said that would be shown for the first time at e3 2014 Sylux Eiji Aunuma enough talk show us something pls 🙂 We allready know you want to surpass all expectations on the new Zelda, you always do, (always succeeding is a debateable part though) Both Zelda Windwaker HD and Zelda a link Between worlds succeeded though, as of now even Ocarina of Time is no longer my second favorite, but a Link Between Worlds is, my no1 is still unsurpassed and still is A link to the Past, but ALBW certainly comes VERY close, just started on Hero Mode. Same can be said on Metroid, the snes smash hit is still holding strong on 1 followed by MP2 Echoes on a good second. I doubt if the Snes classics can and will ever be surpassed… Marcos Parreira If the graphics are like the tech demo… there is just no game from Microsoft or Sony that can beat it. I’m sorry, but it will have all a game needs: great controls (GamePad), great history and great graphics.
