Nobody would think that Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword would
be the final Zelda game, we just weren’t sure what exactly the Zelda
development team was working on until now. Today an interview with Zelda mastermind
Eiji Aonuma revealed that the team
is already working on a new Zelda for the 3DS.

According to a translation of the
Portuguese interview by Eurogamer,
the team is “already preparing a new game, a game in the series for the
Nintendo 3DS, but don't think that it is a direct sequel to the Zelda titles
released on DS… We are talking about a new game, but it takes much of what has
been done on previous handhelds." Does that mean another game in the style
of touch controlled Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks, or will it be more
directly controlled like Ocarina 3D?
Recently our own Carolyn Gudmundson got a chance to
interview Mr Aonuma as well as Nintendo music mastermind Koji Kondo and they
also had some interesting info to share. Keep your eye out for it next week.
