Nintendo Teases Zelda Reveal in 2010

newzelda?
Not to be lewd, but I imagine the current relationship between enthusiast gamers and Nintendo to be comparable to a young man and some sort of harlot. She keeps giving you tantalizing glimpses of her ankle while all the while promising that more is coming.

To continue with this tortured analogy, the “ankle” here is the concept art that Miyamoto was parading around at E3 ’09 depicting Link and some sort of ethereal being that looked vaguely like the Master Sword. In a recent interview with UK’s Official Nintendo Magazine, Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma says he hopes to show something “surprising” at E3 ’10, thus completing the promise of “more”.

Nintendo proved recently with Super Mario Bros. Wii that it still knows how to make titles for its old-school fans, and with Metroid: Other M on the horizon I think we can take this as a sign that Ninty is finally starting to show appreciation for the “hardcore”. Though the company is often criticized for its constant rehash of the same tired franchises, there’s no doubt that gamers everywhere still clamor for these titles. The question is, how much longer will we get strung along before we see some actual gameplay? What’s your opinion, though? Are you pumped for a new Zelda, and what do you expect from it?

  1. Personally, I haven’t played a truly fulfilling Zelda since OoT (MM was ok, but too frustrating). Windwaker was fine, and TP, well, I have yet to actually beat it still. (Dang water temple XD). I’m hoping that with this one, it might bring back some older elements, and leave out some of the recent, like massive water travel and wolves.
    And, I can’t wait to pick up Super Mario Bros. Wii.

  2. I’m hoping the next Zelda game is as good as Twilight Princess (easily my fave, but WAY too easy. 1st run: 1 death).

  3. Why is it called zelda when you play as someone called link? If some one can answer that ill be amazed.

  4. @ floorspider; becuase the princess is called Zelda i thnk.
    but I played both the old and the more recent ones that were on gamecube because I dont want to shell out for a wii but this might be the one to make me get one…

    Because Zelda is the princess that the game usually focuses on.

    I’m historically happy with Zelda. To be honest, WW has been my favorite to come out since the old NES games (I never got a SN, so OOT and MM were out of my grasp).

    By the way, I got stuck in the water temple too. I wont spoil it for you, but the answer is literally right in front of you. It’s so obvious that you overlooked it and you’ll kick yourself when you figure out what you were supposed to do.
