Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Iwata Hopes To Reveal Zelda Wii U In The Not-Too-Distant Future

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has stated that the company hopes to reveal the next iteration of the Zelda franchise on Wii U in the not-too-distant future. Iwata stressed that Nintendo is concentrating on developing and marketing The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD for Wii U. Presumably once that is it out-of-the-way then they will be ready and able to show off the new Zelda title for Wii U.

“It is true that Mr Aonuma’s team has been working on a new Zelda title for the Wii U. But the only announcement we have at this time of software which will soon become available is WindWaker HD. But they are actually working on an exclusive new Wii U title in the Zelda franchise and I hope in the not-too-distant future, we will be able to make the relevant announcement.”

Predictions for LT console sales:

PS4: 120M

XB1: 70M

WiiU: 14M

3DS: 60M

Vita: 13M

I think we may see it in the next Nintendo Direct, if they were so very nearly going to show it at E3.


Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

^This! A teaser trailer at the end of the W101 direct is what I'm betting on. Afterall, they said the direct would be "mostly" about W101 hehe.

They should put a little something something into the Wind Waker box regarding the next Zelda? A Trailer or a behind the scenes or something.

Ongoing bet with think-man: He wins if MH4 releases in any shape or form on PSV in 2013, I win if it doesn't.

December Direct.

Should have shown something at E3. Even a little teaser would have been nice. Oh well it's coming.
