Zelda Wii U to “challenge the conventions” of the series

Nintendo are to once again “challenge the conventions” of The Legend of Zelda series, according to series producer Eiji Aonuma.

In doing so, he teased fans to “expect big things” stating that it is important for Nintendo steer the series in new directions rather than use a continued formula.

“Skyward Sword is a title where we took aim at all the conventions of the Zelda series”, Aonuma explained to Nintendo Power. “While that may have been difficult, I think that confronting those challenges resulted in something that has a great deal of value.

“When it comes to Wii U, we’ll obviously want to add new elements that take advantage of the capabilities of the platform. I think using that as a lens through which we once again challenge the conventions of Zelda is more important than just making another Zelda game. With that in mind, please expect big things from the Zelda series to come!”

  1. Would they be able to compete with skyward sword though? I mean, going from swinging the sword with the wii motion plus controller back to mashing buttons? They would have to make this worth the while which I’m sure is not impossible. I hope this works nintendo 😉
