Zelda Wii team exploring big and unique ideas.
by Matt Casamassina
July 15, 2008 - No big surprise. At E3 2008, Nintendo confirmed (very vaguely) that the Mario and Zelda teams had reassembled, but offered no further details. But when we sat down with Shigeru Miyamoto this week, he elaborated on situation, absolutely confirmed that a new Wii Zelda is underway, and suggested that it will see some fundamental changes.
"The Zelda team in particular always works on Zelda titles. The core members of the Zelda team have for a very long time now been focused on Zelda games, and continue to focus on Zelda games, so they are hard at work and working away," Miyamoto said. "And then, of course, we have the DS Zelda team as well, so even there we're having some switching of people in and out where the DS team is mixing in with the Wii team and working on the Wii version."
At GDC 2007, Eiji Aonuma gave a presentation on The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. At that time, he showed a brief snippet of an experimentation the Zelda team conducted -- it was Twilight Princess running in the first-person view. We asked Miyamoto if such a fundamental change could await players of Wii's next Zelda adventure.
"I don't necessarily think it will change that drastically, but I think that Zelda is a franchise that does need some big new unique ideas," he said. "And so the team right now is very focused on trying to find those ideas."

I think they want to avoid the problem they had when they showed up with a Mature Link one year and then came back the next year with Celda Link.
I do agree that Shiggy should have given a little more weight to these teams during the press conference. I think a lot of people kinda missed it when he said that Mario and Zelda teams are working. I assumed those teams still had a job!60GB PS3 Rotation : Midnight Club

agreed, the mario/zelda reference was VERY brief. most of the people i was chatting with about it didnt even catch it. (too busy lol'ing about wii snowboarding). it would have done nintendo LOTS of good to spend more than 2 seconds on that. even just some artwork would have gone a LONG way.....
