Zelda producer on Wii U game -- "It's going well"

Eiji Aonuma speaks positively about upcoming Wii U Zelda game, says it will use GamePad in "various ways"; wants to shake up series with new game.
Development on the upcoming Wii U Legend of Zelda game is "going well," series producer Eiji Aonuma told 4Gamer in a new interview translated by Siliconera.

"It’s going well!,” Aonuma said, explaining that the new game will use the Wii U GamePad in "various ways." None of these were specified.

Also in the interview, Aonuma was asked about his recent comment that he is "tired" of making Zelda games. This quote was misinterpreted, he said, because he really meant he is tired of making games based on the same formula. (The Legend of Zelda, Wii U)

You're GAWD DAMN RIGHT it's going well. As good as SS was, the series could use a different direction. It's too bad we have to wait til probably Winter of '15 to get the game. I'm not sure the world can keep going on the way it is long enough for me to play it....

let me at least play this game first before America becomes a full-blown Nazi military state...

... oh no... they can hear me...

They may have been aiming for 2015 release, but now they need to make it sooner than that in order to boost sales, so more 3rd party devs. get on board early.
The 10th Rider  +   348d ago
Actually, there's been evidence pointing to them aiming for a (probably late) 2014 release. Which would be awesome.

Dude, that 3rd party ship has sailed.. a LONG time ago
Chrischi1988  +   348d ago
Actually it has not, just because Betheshda says so. People who say this, do not know, how marketing and business works. You go there, where the money is, if there could be enough money on Nintendos platform, then even EA stated it will come back.

Can't this game come any sooner?
I really cannot wait for it.
Misaka_x_Touma  +   348d ago
more likely early 2015
ritsuka666  +   348d ago
Man,this is going to be the biggest, most ambitious Zelda game to date?
chrissx  +   348d ago
I will get a wiiu for this game.
filchron  +   348d ago
might get it. if its better than ocarina of time and doesnt have a wack artstyle. its time for zelda games to lead the next generation like they did on N64.
Chrischi1988  +   348d ago
Yeah, better than Ocarina of Time, just like that^^
filchron  +   348d ago
not "its going extremely well" or "this new zelda game will blow your minds and will dethrone uncharted in terms of visual presentation"? just "its going well" ok :/
filchron  +   348d ago
i dont get the disagrees. do you guys not want the new zelda game to raise the bar and set a new standard? i know you guys are cutting nintendo some slack because this is their first HD console but geez come on. demand more from your first party games. maybe then more 3rd parties will jump on.

Agreed!

Nintendo has always been modest in the development of their products, and I am assured some of the best gaming on the Planet..
clouds5  +   348d ago
Can't wait :) It was a good decision to get a WiiU.
EXVirtual  +   348d ago
I'll pick up a Wii U as soon as this comes out. I loved TP and SS. But if X comes out before this, then I'll get a Wii U sooner.
BosSSyndrome  +   348d ago
I guarentee X comes out first. WAY first.
DoggyBiscuit  +   348d ago
ZeldaU will be epic I just know it I don't care what art style they go with just give me some ganondorf and a kick ass story line and I'm all In
Chrischi1988  +   348d ago
Yeah, the best Zeldas are the ones, where Ganondorf is the endboss. So I hope they wont forget to include Ganon as prime evil ;)
Jagsrock  +   348d ago
Gah I want to see it so bad.Come on nintendo throw us a screenshot or even some concept art, pleaseeeee!
LOL_WUT  +   348d ago
If it doesn't look like that tech demo then i'll be disappointed it'll be a good way to show off what the console could do ;)
marloc_x  +   347d ago
I feel it will surpass it WUT, we are in for a treat!
Anyone worried about Zelda U just needs to look at the e3 2011 tech demo, and realize that as good as that looks the finished game will be better.
