Aonuma: Zelda Wii “well underway”

Posted on 9 years ago by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii | 8 Comments | 0 Likes

A little bit of this we’ve heard from Eiji Aonuma before, but some of his quotes are new…

“You may be under the impression that we are still only in the early stages of development – [but] in fact we are well into the making of the game… Our team has been working on making the building blocks regarding the action – the scenarios, dungeon-making and so on. We are well underway. I hope that we can show you something at the E3 show next year and it is something we are hopeful will be surprising. [The team has] already got a very solid response [from MotionPlus].

I actually didn’t know that Zelda Wii was fairly far in development. To me, it sounded like the team was messing around with a few ideas, concepts, and tech demos but didn’t have anything substantial when it came to the true game. But obviously I thought wrong!

Hand-Held Pokémon Adventures and New Wii Remote Colors are on the Way

REDMOND, Wash., Dec. 14, 2009 – Consumers nationwide continue to snap up Nintendo products for the holidays, and Nintendo is poised to carry that momentum into 2010. Dozens of games for the Wii™, Nintendo DS™ and Nintendo DSi™ systems are on the way in a wide range of categories from both Nintendo and its third-party partners.

To bring a little color to the winter months, Nintendo will release two new colors for its Wii Remote™ controller. Starting Feb. 14, the controller will come in Pink or Blue and will be bundled with a Wii MotionPlus™ accessory. Along with the current White and Black versions of the controller, now every player in four-player matches can have his or her own color.

The first of this week’s new Virtual Console™ releases gives new meaning to the term “underground legend,” sending players down a mysterious manhole for a classic subterranean adventure. Another fine addition to the Virtual Console section of the Wii Shop Channel features the iconic hero Earthworm Jim in a fun-packed sequel from the SEGA Genesis era. For the Nintendo DSiWare™ service, a slate of five new games includes everything from the pets of LITTLEST PET SHOP™ to animated puzzles, cooking and magic tricks. For fans of the WiiWare™ service, fast-paced stunt driving and Moki-herding mayhem are among the latest arrivals. Whether you’re downloading for yourself or seeking cool, convenient gifts for everyone on your holiday list, look no further than the Wii™ Shop Channel and Nintendo DSi™ Shop for instant gratification.

At the Video Game Awards last night, a sequel to Star Wars: The Force Unleashed was announced. However, the video did not provide any sort of confirmation that the game will be heading to Nintendo platforms. Although, according to Amazon, it will end up on the Wii and DS. This would certainly make sense, seeing as how the first title hit both Nintendo systems.
