New Wii Zelda Confirmed For 2010 Release + Nintendo DS 2 News

leave a comment »

Ever since the successor to Zelda: Twilight Princess was announced at last years E3, Ninty fans have been gnawing at the bit to get any info they can regarding Link’s next Wii outing.

What we do know is that it will be built from the ground up to take full advantage of the Wii motion control system, as opposed to Zelda: Twilight Princess which was essentially a conversion of the Gamecube version.

Now we have one other fact; the next Zelda title on Wii will arrive this year. The release window was confirmed by Nintendo president Satoru Iwata in an interview with Japan’s Asahi Shimbun. What wasn’t confirmed is whether or not the release window pertains to a Japanese or a Western release. My money would be on the former.

Further beans were spilled in what appeared to be a surprising revealing interview, as Mr. Iwata went on to talk about the next machine to follow up the wildly successful Nintendo DS handheld.

According to the Nintendo CEO, the successor to everyone’s favourite dual touchscreen handheld would boast very detailed, high resolution visuals and in-built sensors for detecting and reacting to player motions and gestures. This chimes in correctly with the rumour mill as of late, as Nintendo is known to be currently courting the very powerful Nvidia Tegra graphics chip for alleged inclusion into a successor to the Nintendo DS.
