Nintendo: Zelda HD won’t “necessarily” look like this

Speaking to Wired last week about the conceptual Wii U demo of Zelda HD (pictured), here’s what producer Eiji Aonuma had to say:

“You probably remember that when we introduced the GameCube, we showed a somewhat realistic Zelda demo,” he said. “And what we actually created was the cel-shaded Wind Waker. So when we show a graphic demo, people think, ”˜Oh, this is what the next Zelda will look like,’ but that’s not necessarily the case,” he said.

No worries. I trust you. So long as it’s Zelda, I couldn’t care less.
