Eiji Aonuma has told Nintendo's official Latin American magazine that he will be in charge of developing Zelda for Revolution.

The news that Zelda is coming to Revolution... isn't news at all. Although its impact was dulled slightly by the avalanche of news, statistics and media that blanketed the internet this May, those with good memories will recall that Nintendo pledged to bring Mario, Zelda, Super Smash Bros, Donkey Kong and Metroid to its next-generation format during its pre-E3 press conference.

What's interesting, we suppose, is that Aonuma will be handling it instead of Shigeru Miyamoto - a reflection, clearly, of the faith that Aonuma's boss has in his work. "[Nintendo president Satoru] Iwata has assigned me with the task of doing a Zelda game for the upcoming platform," Aonuma told Club Nintendo magazine.

In the meantime, of course, there's The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess on GameCube to look forward to. And if you're not looking forward to it, we suggest you buzz off and read about it until you are or, if you just plain don't care on any level, that you stop making us cry with your heresy. AFTER ALL WE DID FOR YOU.
