Two of Nintendo’s biggest names, Shigeru Miyamoto and Reggie Fils-Aime, were recently interviewed by the folks over at Club Nintendo Magazine, the largest Nintendo magazine in Latin America. As you could guess, they shared a few words about Zelda.
Club Nintendo: How are you? It’s been two years since we brought you an Epona figurine with you on it. Do you remember?
Shigeru Miyamoto: Of course, thanks for having me.
CN: The fans want you to develop a title like The Legend of Zelda with all the functionality of the Wii, like the Wii Motion Plus. We know we have a Zelda on Wii already, but it was a title made really as a Gamecube project.
SM: Yes, we have The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess for Wii and Gamecube, but right now our Zelda team is working on a Zelda specifically for Wii; we were simply not ready to show it
CN: Is that why Eiji Aonuma wasn’t here during E3?
SM: Yes, that’s correct.
CN: The title Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass was very successful for the Nintendo DS. Will there be new titles from the series for this system?
SM: Well, we have two teams for Zelda and Mr. Aonuma is immersed in many of the operations. He was even involved with Link’s Crossbow Training; we say he is a very busy man.
And when asked if Nintendo had anything in store for the hardcore Nintendo fans, Fils-Aime had the following to say:
“Also, as Mr. Iwata said, the Mario team and the Zelda teams are hard at work, as is the Pikmin team, as Mr. Miyamoto said yesterday. We’ll continue having games for Nintendo Fans.”
Props for translation goes to the good folks over at TheHylia and GoNintendo. And it’s a very good thing that they worked it out, because even though I’m in my third year of Spanish, I still couldn’t make it past the first sentence of the article. If you needed to know how to buy a young woman a margarita, however, I could probably help you out with that.
