The “new” Zelda game shown in the Wii U trailer, which is coming to the site soon ™, has been proven to be a tech demo. The information originated on Kotaku, but was later on confirmed by our own at-the-scene guy Alex, who is soiling his pants while playing the new Skyward Sword demo as we speak. The demo shows a fight between Link and Gohma in the temple of time in a pre-rendered cinematic.
Wait, did I say pre-rendered? I meant dynamic cinematic in which you can adjust the camera angle and switch between day and night time. And it looks that way (videore-posted here for reference). Do I need to say any more at this point? Apparently there have been some “if’s” and “maybe’s” on the scene being thrown around by Nintendo personnel, but no new Zelda game is being announced at this point.
