The Legend of Zelda 2015

I’m sorry if you missed it, but Nintendo announced the next installment in the Legend of Zelda series for the Wii U yesterday during its digital keynote for E3 (link to Polygon’s article on Zelda 2015).

We don’t have a title, nor a story, but we do have the following from the producer himself (and you can hear it all at the link above):

  • First installment made specifically for the Wii U
  • Supposedly will harken back to a more open-world feel of the original Legend of Zelda

That is about all we know.

Zelda 2015 2

Needless to say, I’m more than a little excited about this game. The style seems to be a good mixture of Skyward Sword and Twilight Princess. It will be fun to see what Nintendo can do in HD with this franchise.

While I don’t know what an open-world Zelda is going to be or play like, I am interested to see what a Japanese development studio will do with what has become a decidedly American style.
