Cammie D hints at Zelda this year, puts steak dinner on the line


If the new Wii Legend of Zelda doesn't come out this year, Nintendo's Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing Cammie Dunaway is going to owe Wired's Chris Kohler a steak dinner.

In an interview conducted earlier in the week, Dunaway hints strongly that we'll see the new Zelda this calendar year. She was so confident, she bet a steak dinner on it. Release dates for Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Metroid: Other M were confirmed at Nintendo's media summit earlier this week, but Dunaway went out of her way to tell attending press that Nintendo was only showing titles for the first half of 2010. The second half, the exec told Wired, should be just as strong.

"One of the things that’s true for Nintendo is that we’re not driven by a calendar for our release dates," she explains, leaving the door open for Kohler to be on the receiving end of said dinner. "When the games are ready to go, when the quality is perfect, that’s when we release."

We may get to see the quality of the new Zelda this June -- Nintendo is expected to show off the title at E3 this year.
