Although Nintendo didn't give it the sort of billing that its Cube counterpart received at E3 in May, game designer Shigeru Miyamoto has nevertheless confirmed that the company is working on a Zelda title for the Nintendo DS handheld, and that the game will follow on from the Four Swords GBA multiplayer title.

Talking to Square Enix's Akitoshi Kawazu on-stage at Nintendo's DS press event in Japan this week, Miyamoto responded to a comment about Square Enix's forthcoming Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles title by first admitting that conditions for connectivity were less than ideal for the Game Boy Advance and GameCube, and then mentioning Zelda.

"In creating GBA connectivity games for the GameCube, we had to deal with four handheld systems at once. Trying to get it all equipped was just troublesome," he said. "But the DS comes with its own two screens, and it doesn't need wires. We're working on Legend of Zelda: Four Swords for the DS, so it'll be a competition."

And as soon as there's more to say about Four Swords DS, we'll be sure to let you know.
