Zelda Wii U will feature more unexpected elements - Aonuma

What will they be?

Expect the unexpected from the new Legend Of Zelda Wii U game. That's the word from Eiji Aonuma who is busy working on the game that will rethink the conventions of Zelda.

As well as Zelda: A Link To The Past 2, Nintendo is working on an as-yet-untitled Zelda Wii U game. Speaking with Edge magazine, Aonuma said that the new Wii U title, like Link To The Past 2, will offer surprises for gamers.

"The new game (A Link To The Past 2) will play very differently to the original," said Aonuma. "I think the new additions will make players see the game in a different way. And, of course, we'll introduce even more unexpected elements in the Zelda game that we're making for Wii U."

In addition to Link To The Past 2 and Zelda Wii U, Nintendo is also releasing a Wind Waker Wii U remake. Fans will be hoping to see more of all three games at this year's E3 conference.

    Move aside Luigi, this year belongs to a different hero in green!

    I doubt we'll see anything of the new Wii U Zelda game, but I hope that E3's Nintendo Direct will at least ellaborate on this point. It sounds very exciting.

    I would like to hope we at least get the actual title of the game, and a few screenshots and a brief description of the gameplay. If they call it "The Legend of Zelda U" I will kick a child down a drain.

    Well, he wasn't going to confirm expected elements.

    I think the fact he's talking about Zelda Wii U might be a hint that it will be at E3

    My thoughts are that the first one is actually a screenshot from Tales of Vesperia on 360/PS3. And I would be right, because that's what it is.

    The second one is Xenoblade, it even says so in the URL.
