E3 2015: The Wii U Still Has Plans for The Legend of Zelda Link just has to save Princess Zelda from the Temple of Delay first. 06.18.15 - 9:23 PM
Earlier this year, it was revealed that The Legend of Zelda for Wii U would would not be released in 2015. This, coupled with the announcement of NX, Nintendo's venture into smart phone gaming, gave fans good reason to worry that they may never play a new The Legend of Zelda on a console, again. The fact The Legend of Zelda for Wii U was completely absent from Nintendo's conference at E3 this week didn't help. Well worry not, fellow Hylian warriors. Shigeru Miyamoto jumped into action put your fears to rest.
This was the last we saw of The Legend of Zelda for Wii U at The Game Awards, back when it was still scheduled for a 2015 release.
Using an interpreter, Miyamoto confirmed, "We're here to talk about Star Fox but Zelda is still coming to Wii U, so don't worry about that. My thing with E3 is that we always focus on what's coming out in the immediate future. We have some really great Zelda footage and, at some point we will be showing that off, but not today." Shigeru Miyamoton is a legend in the gaming industry. During his time with Nintendo, he has created some of the biggest gaming franchises ever known, including Zelda, Mario, Star Fox, and Donkey Kong. He currently serves as the General Manager of Nintendo's Entertainment and Analysis division.
In case you missed it last year when it was announced, here's the trailer shown at E3 2014.
