Aonuma Drops Hints On Next-Gen Zelda


Speaking to US Magazine Game Informer, Zelda creator Eiji Aonuma has talked about how Zelda could make the next-gen jump to the Wii U.

He revealed that revealed he’s planning to take advantage of Wii U’s power with the console’s first Zelda, whilst also hinting that another 3DS Zelda is in development.

“The demo that we showed at E3 was really just more of a rough idea of if all we were to do was to take a Zelda game and put it in HD, this is what it might look like. We’re much more interested in looking at the power of the Wii U system and seeing how we can take advantage of that power to do things that we haven’t been able to do in a Zelda game before..One of our goals with [Skyward Sword] is to be the first step in illustrating for people how the Zelda series can change and evolve.”

When asked if they were planning to do an original Zelda for 3DS, he said that he expects to be able to do something ‘very interesting’ whilst adding “It will be a game in which having 3D will mean something,”.
