Shigeru Miyamoto has unveiled some new information about Zelda II in an interview, and confirmed that the game will be coming to the Wii. We can probably expect a load of Wii - DS functionalities and maybe even a FPS-mode...
Zelda II was released 20 years ago!
Don't forget re-released on the Gamecube.
I don't own a Wii, but maybe someday.
Zelda II is what they called Zelda: tp before calling it tp.
I don't own a Wii but I like zelda. Hope you guys have fun with it.
If another Zelda is indeed coming to the Wii that's great news. Too bad they didn't have much mention about it in the press conference which seemed to be a big screw you to the hardcore crowd. It's sad that we still haven't seen or heard about alot of the good games. Star Fox could be interesting with Wii, Pikmin 3 is something that really needs to come out, Another F-Zero would be awesome as well yet we have heard nothing.
For me a new Zelda coming to the Wii wouldn't not be good news.
I'm a Nintendo fan that has jumped to Sony for the time being.
I say create a decent Zelda for the next Nintendo. Hopefully one with middle to decent hardware and I'll jump back to Nintendo again.
I don't think the Wii has the graphical horsepower to create a Zelda for this generation.
Any Zelda that comes out on the Wii will just look laughable compared to other RPGs of this generation i.e. Oblivion, Final Fantasy and Fallout.
I'm sure it will be good. All Zeldas are, but it won't be as good as it could be.
Save it for the Wii2
Twilight Princess graphics were great, and it was released alongside the Wii, before Nintendo even had a chance to push the Wii's graphical power. The one flaw in Twilight Princess was the controls. This new Zelda will probably have similar graphics to Twilight Princess, but it will have 1:1 swordplay. I'm personally hoping for a direct sequel to TP. What about the Twilight realm?
TP did not justify a Zelda game for the Wii, it was a GCN port with a Wii-mote scheme.
I'm glad they are making one and i hope they use the Motion plus.
edit:"I'm sure it will be good. All Zeldas are, but it won't be as good as it could be"
dude you logic fails HARD, this zelda game wont be the last.
Why wont here be a nother Zelda game after this one?
you got it all wrong, Nintendo developed TP for the GCN. Because the Wii was about to come out to the public, they decided to work on it for another year.So they can make the control scheme optimized for the Wii. They didn't build TP with the Wii in mind it was originally meant for the GCN.
@sidar that was exactly my point. If anything, the seccond Zelda on the Wii will be better than TP was. Especially with Wii Motin Plus! I was, however, quite dissapointed when Nintendo lacked mention of Zelda @ the press conference.
Miyamoto basicaly confirmed Mario galaxy2, Zelda Wii, and Pikmin 3 last night. goto: IGNWii.com
They should've announced this durig the conference though. tbh
Wii isnt powerful enough for a Zelda? And they let that kind of Fanboy statements stay on the front page. Please.. That kid wouldnt know a quality title if it bit him in the ass. You jumped to Sony 3 gens ago, not this one.
Cuz I felt Nintendo wasn't catering to my needs as a hardcore gamer... but I feel I must add as a long time Zelda/Nintendo fan,that this new Zelda should proly have some voice acting in it if I'm gonna consider it to be "next gen". I was very disappointed to have to read text still this far in the current console generation.
" that this new Zelda should proly have some voice acting in it if I'm gonna consider it to be "next gen". "
No thanks...=/ that would kill Zelda franchise for sure.
Well, final fantasy did it. i mean, i cant remember any other game that still uses text speech. voices would be cool. it would be funny(yet lame) if link got a taking sword. and the sword talked through the wiimotes speakers. would be interesting... wonder if they are going to use that motion plus thingy..
has not spoke yet. If the devs do it right I'm sure they could still make him the silent hero. I think that is the way Link should be but not everyone else in the game. IMHO games should move past txt based speech. Yes, this can lead to some really horrible voice-acting moments (ie-2Worlds) But I'm tired of hitting the button constantly to make the txt scroll. Or having to get up and walk to the screen to get a closer view of some critical info that was chosen to be put into a tiny font in an absurdly weird color.
wind wanker 2 please.
Zelda games are usually pretty good. Any updates to bring the franchise up to modern standards but keep the classic gameplay value is always a good thing. And yes, the Wii is quite capable of it..just that no one seems to want to bother to "push" its capabilities..
actually voice acting would excel the Zelda experience. It won't, by any means, kill, or deduct from the already awesome games that are the Zelda series. Adding voice acting to LINK would probably mess up the experience, but not to every other character. I understand that it would be difficult since you get to name your character and all, but if you were mandated to have to be called Link then there would be no interference with voice acting. Zelda is just dying to have voice acting put into it. Just not to Link
Maybe Some characters, but if people expect link to have a voice....i dont even wanna think about it.
I hated the control with the wii remote so I just bought it for the gamecube. Now, I'll just have to deal with it...........
All they really said was they were being developed. Big surprise. You can probably bet that a new Mario and Pokemon game is being developed too. The more pressing issue is what is around the corner for the Wii.
This is a confirmation. I'm waiting for a teaser trailer.
It should be completely FPS, with the new motion thingy for the Wiimote, and all combat should be done using it. It make the fighting awesome and engaging.
can't remeber from were, maybe a magazine or website?
but there was a rumored remake of a Zelda game in First Person.
as in Sword and Shield - Wiimote and Knun-chuck (boomerang, net etc)
will definitely require the New Wii Motion Sensor add-on to make Links sword and shield more accurate (you know, how we expected the wii mote to work when it first came out, talk about empty promises)
this would be sick, Link Sword and Shield
FPZ = first person zelda (i coined the phrase b!thces)
It sounds like this game could possibliy
be over rated
true dat nintendo are sooooo boring and predictable same old crap as usual
is this the one with the emo link :D?
Misleading title. This is not information, it's pure speculation. Rubbish article.
"We can _probably_ expect a load of Wii - DS functionalities and _maybe_ even a FPS-mode... "
It is an interview clearly stating that a new Zelda is in the works.
ZELDA HAMES ARE COOL BUT REALLY.
