We were shown the new A Link Between Worlds and The Wind Waker HD games at this year’s E3 Nintendo Direct, but a key Zelda title was not invited to the party. Zelda Wii U has been known to be in development for some time now and Nintendo is presumably hard at work completing the title for launch. Actually, they may be closer to finishing the project than we initially thought.

Miyamoto let the cat out of the bag during an interview with Game Informer. Hit the jump to see what he said!

Miyamoto gave this response to Game Informer when asked about Zelda Wii U:

“We’re also working on a new Wii U Zelda game. Work on that is progressing fairly concretely. In fact, we were thinking about showing it here at E3 but decided to wait just a little bit longer before sharing it with everyone.”

It appears as if we may finally get to see the first glimpse of Zelda Wii U during a Nintendo Direct later this year and possibly have a release by 2014. How long is a “little bit longer” according to Miyamoto? There’s really no way of knowing but this news is a bright light at the end of the Zelda Wii U tunnel. 

We will be sure to let you know when any news regarding Zelda Wii U is announced. So as always, stay with Zelda Universe!
