This is my most anticipated game of the year (yes, even over we know nothing about LoZ).

But c'mon, how many times are people going to call this game 2D?

Sakamoto-san has given plenty of interviews since this game's unveiling, and in pretty much all of them he's given the reason for collaborating with Team Ninja -- he wanted help making a 3D action game.

It's a 3D game. You can always move around in any direction (no restriction to a 2D plane, thus not making it 2.5D, either). Just watch the gameplay trailer.

In certain places, the camera angles suggest old school Metroid, but that doesn't make the game 2D. Heck, just look at the pic used for this story. If the game were 2D, Samus could only move left to right where she is currently located, instead of being able to move all around that room (and probably use the morph ball to go up that shaft).
