The lights are on
According to series creator Shigeru Miyamoto, Nintendo's new Zelda game for the Wii U is coming along nicely -- and was nearly shown at this year's E3.
We just spoke with Mr. Miyamoto about many of Nintendo's upcoming games, including Pikmin 3 and Super Mario 3D World, but when when we asked about a new original Zelda game for Wii U (which has been rumored to be out in 2014) he said that the game is farther along that many thought. Actually, the company had considered showing the game at this year's E3.
Miyamoto said, "We're also working on a new Wii U Zelda game. Work on that is progressing fairly concretely. In fact, we were thinking about showing it here at E3 but decided to wait just a little bit longer before sharing it with everyone."

Miyamoto's picture is perfect for this news, the only thing missing is the, u mad?
theyll probs do wut they did last year and show it in two weeks with nintendo direct
When a new Zelda comes out, Wii U consoles will fly off the shelf.
I'm patient enough to wait Mr Miyamoto.
That would have been great to see. But enough awesome games were shown, so I hold no grudge.
Kind of glad he didn't. we already have two Zelda games. besides, I know the Wii U needs games, but you can't just play your entire hand at one time. They need to be spaced out. Probably why we didn't me Metroid or Star Fox and the like. For now, what they've shown is more than enough
I can just SMELL the post-E3 Nintendo Direct.
Notice how he says we will see it soon. Notice how yarn yoshi, miiverse pictures and the pulling of basic models was ignored? They didnt even really mention sonic lost world. Perhaps they will have another direct in the near future IE september or october
I'm happy about announcements like this. I've just decided that Xbox One is no longer for me, so I think Wii U or PS4 will be my next purchase.
im still waiting for the zelda game that was announced in 2000. The one where they showed the amazing link vs ganndorf demo and then trolled by releasing i think it was wind waker, the ugliest stupidest paper mario version of zelda.
COME F*CKING ON. You could have knocked it out of the park.
Well, this would have made their presentation actually interesting. The only thing I got out of it was a release date for Pokemon X/Y and a name for the 3DS Zelda... I'm sorry, but I do not get excited for Mario or Donkey Kong...
NOOOOOOOOOOOOO- jk. Nintendo still dominated in my opinion. This was all-around the best E3 ever for me.
Darn it! I'm glad I have a wii u, so if my internet ever failed on my xbox one I pre ordered today. Lol
Nintendo conference wast the same without you Miyamoto
I guess this makes sense. They've got the new 3DS Link to the Past sequel and the Wind Waker remake coming up this year.
There's more than enough Zelda for 2013. Anyone not happy with that is just...
Well, there's something wrong with them.
