Nintendo Confirms New Zelda Game for the Wii U

Nintendo this morning confirmed two updates for the Wii U as well as the fact that it's launching a Virtual Console service for Wii U in the spring. However, the company also had some other exciting news for Zelda fans. Speaking via a Nintendo Direct this morning, Eiji Aonuma, the producer of The Legend of Zelda series, announced that Nintendo would be launching two more Zelda titles for Wii U.

One of the games will be a remake of The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. Nintendo intends to release a remake of the game for Wii U this coming fall. Wind Waker aside, Nintendo has another Zelda game in the works and this one is actually a lot more interesting. Though details are pretty scarce, we do know that it's going to be a new Zelda title.

According to Pocket-Lint, Aonuma hinted that the new title won't have a linear storyline like the previous games. Other than that, Nintendo remained pretty tight-lipped on the details. No word on when we'll hear more about this game, but we're crossing our fingers for some more news when E3 rolls around.
