Zelda DS producer speaks

About unique control system.

Legend of Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has offered the first hints as to how the DS instalment in the popular series will make the most of the handheld's unique capabilities.

Speaking to US magazine EGM, Aonuma declined to go into details but did say: "What I can tell you is that it's going to use the touch screen for a very unique control system that people have never experienced in a Zelda game before.

"What I I think one of the important elements of the Zelda series has always been that you feel like you're in the world doing the things that Link is doing and touching the things that Link is touching," he continued.

"This time you'll be able to use the touch screen and actually touch those items and objects yourself.”

Hmm. Not a lot to go on, then, but at least we know that Zelda DS will definitely be making use of the touch screen. All we need now is some screenshots and a release date...
