The Next Zelda Five Years Away?

In a recent interview with Shigeru Miyamoto, conducted by SUPER Play magazine, Miyamoto had a lot to say about the next-generation games that will be released on Nintendo's Dolphin. However, Miyamoto was talking quite a bit about the true sequel to Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Miyamoto says that the sequel is already under development, but don't hold your breath on the release date.

"The Zelda which will be based on a new system compared to the Ocarina of Time, you have to wait five years for," said Miyamoto. "We are developing it for the Dolphin right now. But when we discussed it, we concluded that five years is an awfully long time. Those who played Ocarina of Time in college will have graduated when the Dolphin game is released! We think that's a long time. So we wanted to use the existing Ocarina of Time engine and the Expansion Pak to make a sequel to Nintendo 64 in the meanwhile."

You might be confused right now. Let me clear this up. The next title will be on Nintendo's Dolphin. For now, they will be bringing you a different game called Legend of Zelda: Gaiden. Which means that this is really going to be more of a side story to the Zelda series, and not a sequel. The side story will utilize the Nintendo 64 expansion pak to provide better graphics. You can look for Legend of Zelda: Gaiden to hit the store shelves late next year in North America.
