Aonuma Briefly Talks About 30th Anniversary And Zelda U

zelda_wii_u_eiji_aonumaYesterday Famitsu magazine teased us with an upcoming interview with Eiji Aonuma and a few others where they sit down to talk about Tri Force Heroes, a brief discussion about the Zelda franchise’s 30th Anniversary, and the upcoming Zelda title for the Wii U. The moment many of us heard the news our minds started to wander about what the “brief” conversation about Zelda U would be about! We all know that the Zelda Symphony is continuing next year with new songs from Tri Force Heroes, that the 30th Anniversary of the Zelda series is next year, and that Zelda U is also slated for release as well. But I think most of us would like some more concrete information, like an actual name for the game and an actual release date too! Alas it seems as if both of these desires might continue to elude us as Nintendo continues to hold this information very close to the belt. In a small excerpt from the interview Aonuma did ask for our faith and patience in reference to Zelda U, which I believe most of us Zelda fans will continue to grudgingly have.

“We’re doing our best. Everyday we improve it bit by bit. It is something that requires plenty of time, however, so please believe in us and wait.”

Head on past the break to see what else he had to say.

Akira Himekawa’s New Manga is Probably Twilight Princess

himebo Akira Himekawa recently announced that they’d be producing another full length Legend of Zelda manga, however, they did not reveal off of what game the manga would be based. Well, Brian Gabriel of Hammerspace has deducted that the likeliest candidate is Twilight Princess. Himekawa had released scrapped concept art for a Twilight Princess comic some years ago, and looking at the silhouette of Link in the recent announcement picture, it’s clear that the design was pulled straight from the Twilight Princess concept art, sans Wolf Link.
This could be purely coincidental, chosen for convenience, or the silhouette may not actually be a match, but it seems way too precise to me. You be the judge, compare the pieces after the jump!

Zelda Wii U Plot Rumors and Possible E3 Appearance

caballo The Zelda fan-base was collectively vexed when Nintendo made the announcement that Zelda Wii U would no longer be released in 2015 nor be shown at this year’s E3, but Nintendo may be applying a bandage to at least one of these sore wounds. Zelda publication The Hidden Triforce was tipped off by a GameStop employee who overheard his store’s Nintendo Representative spilling fact after fact about Zelda Wii U, and amassed a nice list of rumors. The game is said to be compatible with several Amiibo, will not place Ganondorf as its main antagonist, and will be shown at E3 with a trailer and official art.
That’s only a taste of these rumors, devour the rest after the jump!

Miyamoto Will Appear at E3 This Year, But Iwata Will Not

e3gamersbliss_small1IGN has gotten word of Nintendo’s presence at E3, and there is apparently good news and bad news. The good news is that Shigeru Miyamoto will most certainly appear at the Expo. Miyamoto has proven to be the best person to show off Zelda materials on the E3 at live confrences, so let’s all hope he hits that subject this time around. Unfortunately, Satoru Iwata will not be there. After his health-related absence from last year’s E3, it is a shame to not see him there again. This time it is strictly for business purposes. Many of us love to see his digital self on E3 Directs and such, but this may mean we won’t get something like that this year.
