The Wii U has been in stores (or not if you’re trying to get your hands on a Deluxe Set) for about a week now. We’re getting a sense of what it can do, but the true potential of the system remains (hopefully) untapped as of yet. The Zelda series is a go-to title for Nintendo to show off what their consoles can do. In that spirit, the folks at GamesRadar have compiled a list of what they want to see from a Zelda title on the Wii U. Take a look after the jump.
The list, which you can find here, features some obvious things such as plenty of GamePad functionality, but also features some things such as wanting to see a return to playing as both adult and young Link. Some of them I’m not so sure a Zelda title needs per se, but I don’t exactly think any of these things would hurt the next Zelda game. Except perhaps the idea that it needs to come out soon.
Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to have a new Zelda game soon, but that is not, nor will it ever be, Nintendo’s policy when it comes to Zelda. Shigeru Miyamoto famously stated that “a delayed game is eventually good. A bad game is bad forever.” I think the Zelda series is the perfect embodiment of that philosophy. When Zelda gets delayed, we get things like Ocarina of Time and Skyward Sword out of it. Rushing it just so we can have more than one game for the Wii U would be pointless and wasteful. So what about you? What’s your reaction to this list? Comment and let’s find out!
