Don’t fret, lovers of Zelda, word from Miyamoto himself suggests that Zelda will be coming to Wii U. Just this past March, Nintendo suggested that Zelda might not be coming to Wii U after all – instead heading to their next game platform “codename NX”. Today, Miyamoto suggests that while the game might not be coming inside 2015, it’ll still be coming to Wii U. Nintendo’s current hero console will, eventually, get the Link it’s been hoping for since inception. The greatest Zelda adventure to ever grace a console, of course.
Miyamoto spoke this week with IGN through an interpreter. He suggested that that Nintendo’s aim with E3 is to always focus on what’s coming in the immediate future – or potentially in the immediate future. As such, they’d be focusing on Star Fox Zero first.
“We have some really great Zelda footage and, at some point we will be showing that off, but not today,” said Miyamoto.
“We’re here to talk about Star Fox but Zelda is still coming to Wii U.”
Below you’ll see a video showing The Legend of Zelda for Wii U. While Nintendo is prone to change their mind on releases dependent on the market at the time of a game’s release, we’re still crossing our fingers for this one sooner than later.
