First Look at Wii Zelda (2009)

June 6, 2009 at 9:09 pm (Video Games)

A few days ago light was shed on a new Zelda game for the Wii. Apparently the project was so big that Miyamoto wanted to keep it private until significant and showable progress could be shown at next year’s E3. But hey, at least we have confirmation, a release window, and now, a concept art. The pic is to depict a much older Link, but one might notice that the acclaimed adventurer is no longer holding a sword to accompany his shield, but instead is followed by a mysterious spirit. Miyamoto was incredibly tight lipped aside from stating that the new game “is totally taken in a new direction”, WILL incorporate motion plus, and only continued to point out the fact he had no sword. Many rumors are floating around that this could be a new species, or, that this new spirit could be some sort of incarnation of the Master Sword and will play greatly into gameplay. That’s personally the way I’m taking it, but I’m still just happy that we have this much to see. We finally have some sort of tangible glimpse as to where the series is going next, and a firm and realistic window of 2010. (Just think, E3 2010 could be a gateway to confirm it for next holiday!) Miyamoto has played his cards right, they brought out some big guns at the conference, and now he is amply teasing us for a new Zelda. Check out the link below to see the snapshot.
