Aonuma suggests he wanted to announce something relating to Zelda Wii U at Comic Con, preparing to show “something new” soon
Eiji Aonuma recently stated he would “say more” about Zelda Wii U at next year’s E3. But apparently, he originally intended to make an announcement earlier this month.
The news comes from a recent interview Aonuma conducted with German publication Gameswelt TV. Translations of his comments suggest that he had hoped to share news at the New York Comic Con, but was too preoccupied preparing for his presentation. Aonuma ended up telling Gameswelt, “As soon as I am back at my office I will start preparing something new that I can show.”
“So my final question, are you already preparing a new announcement for the next E3, in 2014? Maybe a Zelda for the Wii U? How about this?”
“Actually I wanted to prepare something for my visits in Germany and New York, that I can announce. But I was so busy preparing my presentation of A Link Between Worlds, that I can’t show you anything “new” today. But you can enjoy my next announcement. As soon as I am back at my office I will start preparing something new that I can show.”
So this makes things a bit confusing. Does Aonuma to make an initial, vague announcement about the Zelda title for Wii U and save the big reveal for E3?
