We’ve all been waiting for what feels like eons for the slightest news about Zelda Wii, our generic name for the next console Zelda title. But if you feel like you’ve been waiting a long time already, just wait until you hear this news – Zelda Wii has potentially been in development for nearly five years – a development time second only to Ocarina of Time‘s development cycle.

According to a Game Informer magazine scan, Zelda Wii had been in development for a possible year prior to Twilight Princess‘s GameCube and Wii release. That means development on the Wii title started in 2005. It’s not farfetched to think that Nintendo had more than just artwork back during 2009’s E3 expo, but chose to remain silent. That says good things about 2010’s E3, which will be happening in the middle of June.
