Now You Can Watch Eiji Aonuma Announce Wind Waker Wii U and Discuss the Other New Zelda

Yes, we know we don’t technically need to re-introduce The Wind Waker Wii U or the new Wii U Zelda game, both of which were announced and discussed during today’s Wii U Direct presentation… but we realize that some people might not have the time to look through the full presentation for the announcement and might prefer to hear the details from the mouth of Mr. Aonuma himself rather than read our secondhand reports. For those people, we’ve decided to share a video that shows only the new Zelda announcements from today.

Mr. Aonuma describes the philosophy of the brand-new Zelda for Wii U, including how they’re trying to break free from some unnecessary formulaic elements, such as a linear world design structure and a lack of support for additional players. The theme with the new Zelda will be to “rethink the conventions of Zelda.”

Hop inside for the video.
