Aonuma shares more Zelda Wii U ideas

In the latest issue of Nintendo Power, Eiji Aonuma shared some more thoughts on a Zelda Wii U game. The dual screen action is one of the things he is most excited about.

I really think [having two screens is] one of the most exciting features of the system. Unlike the Nintendo DS, there’s distance between the television and you and your other screen. That really allows for some different interactions, some of which you saw [at E3]. For example, imagine having the contents of Link’s satchel available to you on the screen of your controller, and using elements of the pouch to interact with gameplay on the television.

He also went on to share more ideas on how the controller could enhance Zelda gameplay.

With The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, we had the Nunchuck and Wii Remote sort of stand in for the sword and shield that Link carries. But in a game for the Wii U, I can definitely see something like the controller itself becoming the different items that Link is using, allowing you to interact with the game world and with the game items in a very different way.

      haha dont we all, but i promise u its not gonna happen, especially if u want that game to be good. they spent 5-6 years on skyward sword!!! zelda games are being revolutionised into a legendary series (as if it wasnt already) that each game requires years of work. it will take longer to make, but give more satisfaction 🙂
