Speaking with GamesIndustry in a Q & A at E3 2013, Nintendo’s Mario Bros. creator Shigeru Miyamoto more than hinted at a new Wii U Zelda game.


Miyamoto assures that teams, “are hard at work” on a Wii U Zelda, a title that would surely help the Wii U along in terms of selling consoles. Miyamoto says that Nintendo even considered showing progression on the game at E3.

“Development on the new Wii U Zelda game, we’ve pretty much determined our direction on that and the teams are working hard on that,” confirmed Miyamoto.

“In fact, we actually did consider showing it at E3 this year but we were worried that if we showed the new Wii U Zelda game then that would attract all of the focus, and really what we want people to be aware of and pay attention to here at E3 are the playable games like Pikmin 3 that we have coming in the immediate future, because a lot of fun is with the games that are coming out this year.

“So that’s why we decided not to show it this year at E3, but it’s certainly something people can look forward to.”

The legendary Mario creator hinted at a possible Zelda Wii U reveal this year still.
