As part of the demo for the newly named Wii U home console, Nintendo showed off some very impressive-looking footage of a possible future Zelda game. The graphics look too stylized to be a simple port of Skyward Sword, but too simple for a re-release of Twilight Princess or any other recent games. It’s unknown whether this footage is a simple tech demo, put together to show off what the Wii U is capable of, or footage for a Zelda game we could be seeing in future.

The footage shows a battle between Link and Queen Gohma, as well as a quick shot of the Wii U’s touchscreen controller being utilized as an item screen. Hit the jump to view the video for yourself!

UPDATE: It’s been confirmed from various sources that this is indeed a tech demo to show off the amazing graphics of the Wii U. It appears to be a dynamic cinematic that plays like a video, however it’s being rendered live on the console. You can adjust the camera angles and change the time of day. No new Zelda game has been announced for the Wii U (yet?)

Do you think Nintendo will be announcing this as a brand new Zelda game created for the Wii U, or is it just a simple tech demo put together to show off what the system can do? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
