Being an die-hard Zelda fan from way back, I am incredibly pumped for this game, as it will be the first official Zelda title for this console generation (Twilight Princess was a GameCube gme). But so far all we've gotten is a screenshot (scratch that, a painting) and a few vague allusions from Miyamoto. Now, considering Wind Waker wasn't released until about 2 years after its first trailer, I'm a little worried about how long I'll have to wait to play the next instalment in my favourite franchise.
Supposedly the game's been in development since April 2008 (well into the Wii's life-cycle), and after seeing that amazing early footage of Galaxy 2 and Other M, as well as the inclusion of the Motion Plus and the general scope of Zelda games (most games these days last about 5 hours; try 60 mofos!), it should really push the limits of the systems capabilities. But where are the screenshots, the release dates, the title…? Rumour has it that a trailer will be released in October, at Miyamoto’s keynote speech, but I’m not holding my breathe.
