As is always the case when it comes to Nintendo’s core franchises, we don’t know much about The Legend of Zelda for Wii U. We know that it’s been delayed a time or two, we know that it will release on the Wii U and we know that series Producer Eiji Aonuma is still one of the big talents behind the adventure.
Now we have a little bit of what Aonuma and his team have been going for with the development of Zelda for the Wii U. Aonuma spoke with Famitsu, as translated by Kotaku, about developing the game, and he offered that the core goal for this one was to create “something new.”
Aonuma pointed towards the success of Ocarina of Time and why fans loved it. He offered that that entry in the series was a big jump forward, and then he explained that he thinks “the base of our secret sauce has always been Ocarina of Time. But this time, the change in flavor will be like going from Japanese food to Western style food. Perhaps, players will be surprised.”
The Legend of Zelda is slated to hit the Wii U this year. We might also see it on the upcoming Nintendo NX, but I doubt we’ll hear about that in an official capacity before E3.
