Eiji Aonuma Teases New Zelda on Wii U for E3 2014

Eiji Aonuma Teases New Zelda on Wii U for E3 2014

Because it's never to early to start talking about E3, right?

Nintendo may have broken a record here, folks. It's been less than five months since we put E3 2013 behind us and a developer is already teasing a game for next year's show. So who's the culprit? Nintendo producer Eiji Aonuma. The game in question? The new Zelda game for the Wii U.

Speaking with Mashable about Wind Waker HD and A Link Between Worlds, Aonuma was casually asked if there was anything to say about a new Zelda game for Wii U. His reply was oddly specific:

"I'll say more at E3 2014."

Though Aonuma has already confirmed there's a new Zelda in the works, information on the game is scarce. The producer recently told Japanese outlet 4Gamer that development on the all-new Zelda is "going well." Aonuma also mentioned the game will use the Wii U gamepad in "various ways."

With E3 more than 6 months away, Aonuma's statement doesn't can't really be considered an announcement. There's no way of knowing what he and his team will be ready to talk about next June. Even if the current plan is to show the game publicly at E3 - which is not what he suggested - development could be delayed for any number of reasons.

Obviously there's a lot of speculation here. You can only squeeze so much out of a single sentence. If we Aonuma at his word, expect to hear more about a new Legend of Zelda for the Wii U next year.

E3 2014 will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center June 10-12, 2014.

Well if its a tease for a WII U Legend Of Zelda that will generate hype and get people to buy the console. In the meantime, Ninetendo, could you please work on making a 3DS HD remake of Majora's Mask... you know the best Legend Of Zelda (yh i said it!)

I would very much like this. Majora's Mask was my first LoZ game and I'd like to go back and replay it, but it hasn't aged well at all. A lot of 3D games haven't aged well. I watched my friend play a little bit of Deus Ex : Human Revolution the other day and it's already starting to look bad. I don't even want to touch the original Uncharted for fear of killing my happy memories.

OT: I don't have a WiiU yet, I guess I have over a year to save up for one.

Zelda for the new nintendo-console....what a twist!
In other spectacular news: There will also be a new Mario for Wiiu.
Well, after this years E3 I am looking forward if they can come up with some uses for the gamepad...like, at all....

If our major news media thinks it's never to early to talk about 2016, then why not the next E3?

I hope it's a Zelda game with some new gameplay mechanics, the series has gotten stale, it's quite sad.

No doubt it'll be a good Zelda game. But I will keep my expectations low once we reach next years E3 I do that with any kind of game these days. Overhype can devastate you.

So its down to the upcoming Mario and Super Smash Bros games to raise WiiU sales until holiday season next year eh? Let's see how this goes with two other consoles in the mix.

So, next year they plan to announce when they might give us a reason to buy their system that came out... last year?

A zelda for the Wii U? Who ever would have guessed? I mean this is a ground breaking development in Nintendo's business strategy!

I wouldn't say best Zelda, Certainly memorable in how... Out There It was. It is a favorite of mine though.

Yes, because Skyward Sword didn't use 1:1 sword controls at all, comething no Zelda had ever done.

Well, we all know what my game of E3 is!:D As long as nothing goes horribly wrong of course, though Skyward Sword's lame initial showing didn't really hurt it in the long run.

When a Zelda producer says something must change, you know it's gotten stale.

And besides it's just controls, that's not a major change really.
