According to the official Nintendo Japan website, Link will face off against a new “formidable enemy” in the upcoming Zelda U. While there are no details on the new enemy, this does at least confirm that we will experience a new threat and a new mystery. The direct quote is as follows:

This software is a Wii U Edition new legend of Zelda series. Faced with mysteries in the world of Zelda spread indefinitely without boundaries, a new link, a new nemesis.

This is the first bit of news about the story that we have heard since the reveal at E3. It isn’t much to go on, but it opens the game up for a lot more discussion on the story, timeline placement, and so on. Does this mean that Ganon will not be part of the story? Maybe we will see a Twilight Princess twist as we did with Zant. The point of the world being “spread indefinitely without boundaries” is also very intriguing. From our E3 coverage of Zelda U, we know Aonuma stated that the team was getting rid of boundaries, but just how far is “indefinitely”? Honestly, at this point, it’s all just speculation as to what this news means for the series, but that’s the fun of not knowing, right?

What do you think? Are you excited for a new villain? Do you think any villains from past titles will make a return? Let us know in the comments section down below.
