De beroemde Zelda-producer Eiji Aonuma heeft tegen Nintendo Power gezegd dat gamers grote dingen mogen verwachten van de volgende Zelda op de Wii U. Hij gaf uiteraard nog geen details, maar zei wel dat het volgende Zelda-spel in de reeks de basis van de serie zal uitdagen.
"Skyward Sword is a title where we took aim at all the conventions of the Zelda series. While that may have been difficult, I think that confronting those challenges resulted in something that has a great deal of value. When it comes to Wii U, we'll obviously want to add new elements that take advantage of the capabilities of the platform. I think using that as a lens through which we once again challenge the conventions of Zelda is more important than just making another Zelda game. With that in mind, please expect big things from the Zelda series to come!"
