We haven’t heard anything about The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks after its debute trailer from last week. Neither did we hear anything coming out of Nintendo’s mouth lately regarding a new The Legend of Zelda for the Wii , which has been in production for quite some time now according to various sources. Some new info regarding both games has become available today and is just one click away!

Eventhough a new The Legend of Zelda for the Wii has yet to be confirmed by Nintendo, people are pretty sure it’s coming. Some Nintendo employees have been saying it’s in production for three years already and when you look at some interviews you can be pretty sure that it’s coming. As for the last Game Developers Conference, these people may have been disappointed. In stead of their Wii-confirmation, they got a newZelda-game for the Nintendo DS: Spirit Tracks. Time to ask Nintendo some questions about both games.

At least, that’s what ThatVideoGamesBlog.com thought. They contacted Marc Franklin, Director of PR at Nintendo and asked him several questions, of which two concerning us Zelda-fans. The first one was:

TVGB: “Can we expect Spirit Tracks this year?”

Marc Franklin’s answer:

MF: “I don’t think Iwata made an announcement on a specific date, but we will let you know.”

A pretty weird answer, considering Satoru Iwata did say The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks will be available in 2009. Is Marc Franklin simply wrong or has Nintendo changed her plans?

The second question was about the new The Legend of Zelda for Wii:

TVGB: “I don’t suppose there’d be any word on an upcoming Zelda for the Wii?

Marc’s answer:

MF: “We haven’t announced anything yet”.

You can interpreter this answer in several ways. Two of the most logical ones would be: Nintendo doesn’t really want to answer this question and says “yet” to confirm that there’s nothing known about the new Zelda for Wii or you can interpreter it as in it’s “yet” to be announced, so an anouncement will follow later on (perhaps E3?). Speculations, speculations, but at least not a denial.

    Kind of an odd answer… Well, I guess we'll just have to keep waiting. No use speculating about stuff we have nothing to go on. We'll find out sometime though.

  • Artorium

    Nintendo always answer in a way to avoid giving anything away, they always stand neutral and are good at it. Even Microsoft and Sony arnt as good as Nintendo at conceling the truth lol

  • goronlove7

    dude its an april fools joke frankliy im dissipointed that you didnt interpert that seeing that you even pointed out flaws.

  • CarloVonSexron

    yeah i heard that spirit tracks was just a big joke. which i breathe a sigh of relief for because that "game" wouldve been terrible if it was real

  • Dax

    Yes b/c Link on a train is just SOO out there for a Zelda game…except that it isn't at all. Give me a break.

  • Artorium

    CarloVonSexron, the trailer for the game is on the Nintendo Channel, officail Zelda site, Reggie has talked about it on G4 about 3 times in the past two days and why would Nintedno go through that trouble just for a joke?

  • Feri-san

    And i dont think Nintendo would've played that big a joke on an important covnention such as Game Developers Conference, honestly… it's jsut silly to think they'd be that unprofessional.

  • Dax

    I assumed CarloVonSexron was being sarcastic.

  • lady link

    …… in the headline you say that you have new information on the new wii zelda….. and its absolutely nothing new…..

    • Feri-san

      Yeah, I must admit I too thought it was a bit misleading :X

  • lady link

    lets pray that it is TP style…. or a GOOD version of TWW style, i.e. anime style… not… monitor head

    • Dax

      What's "monitor head"?

      • his head is the size of a bear keg, his legs as long as that which you would find on an adoman (or however you spell that) and a rectangular torso, who the hell thought that looked good?, I would have not had a problem had they proportioned them… um… HUMAN!

        • Dax

          Yeah, some of the character models put me off. Others I thought were fine or cool, though, i.e. Medli, Makar, Ganondorf, Tetra.
