Acknowledging the passing of the 25th Anniversary of The Legend of Zelda, Eiji Aonuma confirmed today that Nintendo had already started on a “new voyage” (the entire message from Aonuma had a very “adventure-esque” theme) for the Zelda series. Aonuma already confirmed that an HD Zelda title was being developed for the Wii U, so could this new title be for the 3DS? Only time will tell.
Aonuma’s full quote is below:
“The long sailing time of 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 these voices become energy for the next voyage. Well, to tell the truth, we’ve already set sail in a new voyage.”
Could the ship theme have something to do with The Wind Waker, and a possible 3DS sequel set in the same timeline, or maybe even a 3DS re-release? We’ll see.
