New 3D Zelda Lined Up for Wii U?
According to Satoru Iwata it appears possible that a 3D Zelda may be on the horizon for the Wii U.
“We will announce the launch schedules for new 3D Zelda and Mario games in the future, but this is not the right opportunity for me to indicate when we will make such announcements,” Iwata told IGN.
Iwata also noted that when developing new hardware, the team looks into how a Mario and Zelda game would pan out; essentially saying that they build the systems based on how those two franchises would play.
Regaridng the development team, Iwata says they ask themselves, “what kind of new Zelda and Mario games do the software creators hope to make on this?” “In the end, [success] all depends on what kind of wonderful entertainment opportunities a hardware platform can provide.”
