Miyamoto Wanted ‘Zelda Wii’ for E3 2009, Hopes to Have It for E3 2010

Shigeru Miyamoto, Eiji Aonuma and the “Legend of Zelda” team have been talking. They’ve been talking about what “Zelda” is and what a new “Zelda” can be. Sadly, they’re still in the discussion process. Miyamoto explained that as much as he wanted to have a new “Zelda” for Wii to show at E3 2009, they’re still in an experimental phase with the game. Not wanting to leave everyone at the Developer’s Roundtable empty handed, he shared a piece of concept art for the game with us. The image featured a very “Twilight Princess”-looking Link standing behind a shrouded, childlike blue figure. Not a whole lot to go on, but still a sip of cool water in a “Zelda”-less desert. Miyamoto hopes to have a WiiMotion Plus enabled “Zelda” to show at E3 2010.
