Video: Miyamoto and Aonuma show off a first look at Zelda for Wii U gameplay



Nintendo surprised us with a special upload to their YouTube channel you don’t want to miss: a first look at the gameplay in the highly anticipated Legend of Zelda entry on Wii U. Aonuma explores several different environments on Epona in the video while he and Miyamoto discuss the game itself and its development. They also stray into other topics, revealing (surprisingly) an odd tidbit: the upcoming Star Fox game for Wii U will be released before Zelda for Wii U.  The two developers also promise that both games will be out by the end of 2015, which is a relief to hear.

What do you think?

In addition to being a girl gamer, Holly prides herself on being a red-head. Consequently, the blue shell in the Mario Kart series is her natural enemy. Don't worry, though: she still loves Mario Kart and is very good, despite the occasional blue shell-sabotaged race. Like any Nintendo fan, Holly also loves Zelda, Pokemon, Mario, Donkey Kong, Metroid, name it. But she'll try just about anything (besides horror games) and has a soft spot for unique, little-known rhythm games like Rhythm Heaven and Samba de Amigo. NNID: Aeroweth


  1. I’ve covered the Big N for many moons, and for them to show more detailed footage of Wii U’s Zelda title is monumental! And the actual game play footage!
    It took the show, it took all the Nintendo fans, and then, everyone else!

    Remembering last year: Cranky Kong.
    This year: Mario Maker with SMW+SMB3 changeable graphics; Codename Steam revealing of local and online multiplayer!

    Those two titles alone made for a great showing for a non-Nintendo event.
    But to look back, those two titles were calm before the storm!

    Zelda for Wii U wowed visually, wowed in sheer depth of scale, and took all of us away with its newly added gameplay mechanics!

    We actually saw the new age of The Legend of Zelda, and it surely was legendary!

  2. Oh, then Star Fox tease!
    Hints at release windows for all these games, and Codename Steam’s actual release date!
    Great show Nintendo!

  3. I wish it went full screen so I could see better but appears like this new Zelda is going to be a stunning game
