To many, this will come as a pleasant surprise—After much speculation, Iwata has confirmed the appearance of Zelda Wii at E3 this year. E3 doesn’t start until June 15th so you’ll have to be patient, but don’t worry – summer and more Zelda Wii revelations will be here in no time.

But if that just wasn’t enough, Nintendo of Europe has backed up Iwata’s earlier claims that Zelda Wii will be released this year.

So, Zelda fans, buckle up and keep your hands in the vehicle at all times—this is going to be an exciting ride into 2010. Or, do you think Nintendo will break their promises?

  • Zelda Wii + Metroid: Other M = BEST FUCKING YEAR EVER!

      haven't you said that already? why do I feel like you said that already?

          aren't we all. yet another reason to want the summer to hurry up

    The E3 part of it was expected, and it'd be shocking if they had nothing to show of Zelda Wii after all of this. As far as being released in 2010, I'm not going to get my hopes up and I don't like how they're making that promise. I think it would have been safer to say that it is TARGETED for a 2010 release. Delays happen all the time, and you can hardly predict them. I don't care if it does get delayed. I've been through this before with twilight princess and am more than willing to do it again just as long as they give us the perfect product. I just really hope they don't pressure themselves on that promise and end up rushing the game out. If you don't think the game is perfect by the time it's scheduled to release, by all means, delay its release and fix the problems. It's better to simply make goals and stay away from promises.

    Looking back at the end of 2002 and 2003, we had Super Mario Sunshine, Wind Waker and Metroid Prime, and it rocked. I didn't knew I would see that happening again, but here we are!

    The first time ever that a mario game a metroid game and a zelda game will be realeased in the same year. But still, I would rather have it come out later, and be better, versus being rushed.

    • MasterEdge

      the games were already developed for so damned long, theres not much rushing that they could do

  • Z-MAN7

    2010 will be a fantastic year for video games. This year's E3 will rock the house!

  • HELL YES.

    METROID AND ZELDA

  • HELL YES.

    I think they learned their lesson from TP in terms of making promises and hyping it waaaaaaay too early. Considering how little we've seen/learned so far compared to how long they claim to have been developing Zelda Wii, I think it's a safe bet that '010 will be our year.

    the gamecube had betetr games than the wii, but now it will finalley turn around.

  • ZeldaGurl_

    Omigosh I'm so excited!!! Twilight Princess really was a great game, and now that we see what they were trying to go for… we are going to be hit with a super cool game right here….or there….whatever…

    I'm not going to get my hopes uo too far, yet I'm not going to be the party-ruiner… or is it party-pooper? Anyway, I think that Nintendo is being fairly sure of themselves, considering Iwata just told off Apple Inc. about their Ipad. I think they already had their delays, and I think that they might just give us a 2010 release. Maybe they were simply stalling for the beginning of the new decade, and have been proactive about this all.

    Whatever, I'm just glad that Zelda is acomin!!! It's time fo the Zelda nation to let it rock again for another console title!!! W00t!!!

    I really am not sure if I can wait for this! Either I am going to have a conniption each day i have to wait, or I am just going to die!

  • TheMaverickk

    It's a Tri-Force year… I don't think this has ever happened in the history of Nintendo. The three great powers of Nintnendo releasing all in the same year. Super Mario Galaxy 2, Metroid: Other M, and finally Zelda Wii.

    This if successful will shut up the nay sayers who feel Nintendo is lazy and doesn't care. I say they've just been busy planning this move for the last 2 years. We will see how it goes though… they still have to pull this off. I believe Zelda Wii will make it though because honestly, there haven't been many (if any) Zelda games that were ever really delayed much.

  • Michael

    I don't think they'll delay Zelda Wii mainly because it's been in development since 2006. They started on it as soon as Twilight Princess came out, or even sooner. They've had long enough to get it ready. Just think, The Wind Waker came out in 2002, 2003, and right after that we knew about the next zelda(Twilight Princess). And it got delayed, and delayed. But now the tables have turned. From 2002 to 2006 was a four year period. 2006 to 2010 is about the same, but we're just now hearing about this game. 2010 will be a golden year for Nintendo.

  • Baubles

    I strongly believe that it will be delayed. look how long it took for twilight princes to come out, Nintendo is famous for this sort of thing.

    • Hellfire

      TP was delayed so long because it was decided to release it on the Wii close to when it should have been out.

  • Rinku1337

    This is good news, but I'd rather hold off on my celebrating until I get a title, some screens, and a trailer. That may sound a little pesimisstic when talking about a "confirmed" release, but I just want to make sure history dosen't repeat itself.

    Oh, yeah…. I mean real screens, not "Beta bait" like those early TP shots with the black and white Twilight Realm.
