Wii U Zelda
Nintendo is working on a Wii U Zelda game that is likely to be a Wii U launch title. The Zelda game still doesn’t have an official title, but the game will be a Wii U exclusive and is unlikely to be released on any other Nintendo systems.
Wii U Zelda features
The Wii U Zelda game will feature high definition graphics — a first for a Nintendo and a Zelda game as well. Visually, the new Zelda title will bare a lot of resemblance to previous games like Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess, where the art design is darker, and more realistic than other Zelda titles like Wind Waker. In addition, Zelda for the WIi U will make use of the brand new Wii U controller, with advanced motion and touchscreen controls, integrated with the game. For instance, players will be able to use the second screen for item load-out, a mini map, and much more. The game is also expected to utilize the Wii U NFC chip in some way, as it’s a new technology that Nintendo is looking to showcase.
Regarding the Wii U Zelda storyline, little is know besides the tech demo we saw at E3 2011, where a boss fight was showcased with HD visuals (see the image above). The new Wii U Zelda game is expected to bring some sort of multiplayer or co-op gameplay feature, most likely through the new Nintendo Network service. It could also be the first Zelda game to have DLC.
