Yeah, you read that right. The next installment of the Legend of Zelda might be hitting Wii U consoles around the world in 2014! Now, this is only a rumor as of right now, but there could be some legitimacy to it. According to Wii U Daily (http://wiiudaily.com/2012/09/wii-u-zelda-game-coming-2014/), a generally reliable source, the legend will continue sooner than expected. But enough hype, let’s talk about the game!
Now, the writer says that the game will use a similar art style to Skyward Sword. Their source claims to have seen the new Link from this game and he appears to look like an older, more matured version of our hero from Skyloft. The game will also take use of the Wii U’s larger discs and is said to be the biggest Zelda game yet! Dungeons are speculated to take hours rather than an hour and the game will take use of the Wii U’s new Gamepad.
With all of this said, and assuming it’s true, I think that this could mean a sequel to Skyward Sword. Why not? Skyward Sword was extremely well received by fans! Most importantly though, many believe that the game surpassed Ocarina of Time and claimed it’s spot as the greatest Zelda game of all time. The last time Nintendo had a success as big as this, they created a sequel to it. Back then, it was Majora’s Mask. Now, it’s Zelda Wii U. That’s my theory for why the graphics were kept the same. Now, I can understand why you wouldn’t believe this since, at the end of Skyward Sword, it doesn’t really leave it open for a sequel. For all we know, it could be a prequel or an entirely new Zelda game!
So what do you think? Are you excited about a new Zelda game? Are you disappointed that it’s using the same art style from Skyward Sword? Or do you think this is all fake? Tell us what you think in the comments!
