Glad to hear that Nintendo will be pushing this game to new territories thanks to the added horsepower of the Wii U.

I can't imagine the PS4 would be able to handle this. JK. I am glad to see an HD Zelda. I can't wait.

I understand why this game is only possible on Nintendo platform, but what makes it theoretically impossible for other platforms, is unclear.

Other consoles don't support an >integrated< second screen controller (Dont compare the Vita) Also Nintendo games are designed around Nintendo hardware, limitations and all. They are wizards when it comes to finding solutions and work arounds to limitations, its part of their entire creative process and part of what makes their games so awesome. Probably a concept that most on here fail to comprehend or appreciate...

I can see people taking this out of context

He is saying the Wii-U allows them to create the vision they have for the next Zelda due to the vastly more powerful hardware compared to the Wii/3DS

Glad to hear they are utilising the extra power they get from the Wii-U

Game is going to be amazing!

He also used as an example that the Gamepad will allow them to make an explorable world like the original Legend of Zelda, while making it more intuitive with a Gamepad map. (And also being able to sell to 100% of the install base, sorry, PSVita/iPads don't cut it!)

and plus this game is designed around the controller with a screen attached to it. dont see a screen on the other systems which is basically a upgraded last gen console
