2014 may seem like a long ways away, but if this newest info on the Wii U's Zelda title is correct, Nintendo's working hard to make it worth the wait.

According to a Wii U Daily source, the Wii U's Zelda title isn't expected until 2014, although work on the game began back in 2010. Eiji Aonuma is once again heading up the project, and the team he's assembled is huge.

The game was originally intended to come out in 2013, but this target was quickly changed.

According to the source, this Zelda's dungeons are massive, the game won't have multiplayer (apart from MiiUniverse functionality), and it utilizes the console's GamePad to such an extent that the game itself influenced the design of the controller. An early, lone test dungeon was "bigger than the Hyrule Field in Ocarina," said the source.
