It was teased earlier this year at E3 2009, that a brand new The Legend of Zelda game was under development for the Nintendo Wii. However, back then they only showed us concept artwork.
Fans can expect the next project to be built from the ground up for the Wii. Since Twilight Princess on Wii was a port of a GameCube game, this upcoming game will be the Wii's first true Zelda game.
Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has said the new game will be something fresh and unique. It will be a complete overhaul that will break away from the long established Zelda formula and provide fans with a brand new experience. This is what he had to say in an interview with the Official Nintendo Magazine:
"It is something we used to talk about with Mr Miyamoto, and he and I agree that if we are following the same structure again and again, we might not be able to give long time Zelda fans a fresh surprise.
"So we have been trying something new in terms of the structure of the Wii version of the new Zelda game this time. I am really hopeful that people will be surprised with the changes we have implemented for this Wii version."
The game will be officially unveiled next year at E3 2010. At least, that is what they have planned for the time being. Furthermore, the use of the Wii Motion Plus controller has been confirmed for the game. We will bring you more information as it becomes available.
