zelda When discussing Wii plans with the Asahi Shimbun, Satoru Iwata brought up The Legend of Zelda. A new installment in the series will go on sale this year.


The enigmatic Vitality Sensor which Nintendo revealed at E3 last year is another cornerstone in their strategy. Iwata says they plan on announcing Vitality Sensor titles in July and will prep them for the market distribution as soon as possible.


While Iwata said Wii system sales were cooling in October, Nintendo sold more Wiis in North America and Japan in 2009 than ever before, partially thanks to New Super Mario Bros. Wii.

    So excited for the new Zelda!!!
    Spirit Tracks (so far) definitely feels like a step in the right direction, I hope that the Wii Zelda will take some inspiration from it.
    I’m certainly less excited about the vitality sensor, but curious about how it might be used in future games.

    Though I am excited about the new Wii Zelda, I am hoping that it’s better than Twilight Princess.
    Not that the last Zelda game for the Wii was bad, but I just wasn’t feeling it. The Zelda universe has been expanding in all sorts of different directions since Ocarina of Time, and I just don’t always get it. Maybe I’m too much of an old-school gamer.
