After showing off The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, Reggie Fils-Aime briefly transitioned to the upcoming Zelda Wii U title. And by briefly, I mean a whole 37 seconds of coverage.
There was about a 15 second clip of Link riding Epona and then he stops as the camera circles our mute hero allowing us to survey Hyrule in all its glory. And how glorious it is. The game looks fantastic and I’m really digging the art style. Unfortunately it looks like we’re going to have to wait another year to get our hands on it. Nintendo is promising the game will be on the Wii U in 2016, but I’m assuming it will be a holiday title with how little we know about it.
“We’re working hard on the new Zelda game for Wii U,” Reggie promises, “because we want it to live up to your expectations – and 30 years of Zelda goodness.” It appears Nintendo is doing their best to spearhead those pesky rumors and speculation of Zelda Wii U being pushed back as a NX launch title. But while Nintendo is promising Zelda as a Wii U title, they’ve never said that it would be exclusive to that console. We shall see.
