During Nintendo’s E3 keynote there seemed to be one portion of the video presentation that caught many by surprise, and made us all simultaneously squee on the inside just a little bit.
Could it be…? Zelda in HD???
The answer is yes, and at the same time no. Nintendo hasn’t gone on record as saying that the footage was indeed a Legend of Zelda game in development. It’s merely being shown as an example of what Wii U can do with the franchise. The video also showed the new Wii U controller acting as a display for Link’s inventory, and a secondary display of the environment.
I may not be the only one who’s a sucker for the Zelda series. Afterall, I did purchase a 3DS at launch just due to the promise of the Ocarina of Time remake. But now it looks as if Nintendo has locked me in again for a Wii U purchase.
Touché Nintendo, Touché.
