New Zelda won't be "radically different"

Miyamoto doesn't think so, anyway.

Judging by a snatched quote from Nintendo Power magazine, Shigeru Miyamoto has said the new Zelda will be a familiar experience, despite being the first instalment specifically built for Wii.

"I don't think it's going to be that radically different," the veteran designer said (read by Aeropause, spotted by vg247).

Amid the Mario E3 madness, Miyamoto managed to sneakily confirm development of a new Zelda game for Wii. Not wanting to announce the project empty-handed, the legendary Nintendo creator produced a picture, which he said proved he is "quite far into the development of the title".

No game specifics were mentioned, other than that Zelda will likely support Wii MotionPlus, although whether this will be a required control method or an option depends on Wii Sports Resort sales.

Wii Sports Resort arrives here on 24th July. Expect our thoughts soon.
