With the success of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword on the Nintendo Wii, producer Eiji Aonuma has already leaked a Zelda game coming to the Wii U, and recent comments cause some to believe that there is another Zelda game coming to the 3DS:
The long sailing time of creating Skyward Sword, a game to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Zelda series, has just come to an end. The voices of those who’ve played it from around the world reach us. We hear their admiration, comments and their criticism too. All those voices become energy for the next voyage. Well, to tell the truth, we’ve already set sail in a new voyage.
Personally, I have stated that Nintendo needs to exploit their original franchises like Activision does with Call of Duty, but are two Zelda games in 2012 too much? Or are you excited to see two interpretations on different platformers?
Every gamer who has ever called themselves a gamer has played at least one Zelda game. Perhaps Zelda would be considered a “hipster’s game,” for they who jailbreak their Ps3 and pimp their PC with liquid-cooling for Crysis, but we have to consider that incredibly long-standing game titles stay popular for a reason (sorry, Final Fantasy, you would be an exception to this).
Is it possible for a game to better with each sequel? Yes, yes it is. Zelda: Skyward Sword has been considered by IGN to be “the greatest Zelda game ever created” –woah now.
