Two things have happened recently: Nintendo, the company that does E3 best, has started slowly de-emphasizing the big convention, choosing instead to focus on its Nintendo Direct webcasts. And secondly, Nintendo’s Zelda series has been taking a bit of a beating lately. True, both Ocarina of Time 3D and Wind Waker HD were excellent, but they were only remakes, and while A Link Between Worlds looks nothing short of incredible, it’s not here yet.
The last big Zelda game was Skyward Sword, and it is widely acknowledged as a letdown, and the first serious misstep for the franchise. The console Zelda series seriously needs to return to form, and maybe the Wii U game, which is said to be breaking all the twenty five year plus conventions that this franchise so strictly adheres to, will be that game.
We’ll know soon: The Legend of Zelda Wii U is getting a reveal at E3 2014, reports Mashable. This comes directly from the horse’s mouth: Aonuma has explicitly stated that he will ‘talk more about the Wii U Zelda game at E3 2014.’
Please be excited, folks. Let’s see if Zelda can keep up in the modern gaming market.
