Zelda Wii U looks like it will be massive.
Shigeru Miyamoto has revealed some more information about what to expect from The Legend Of Zelda on the Wii U.
It looks like Zelda Wii U will be every bit as huge as it seems from the initial footage that has been shown off. Miyamoto-san has indicated that just one area from the new Zelda game will be as big as the whole realm from Skyward Sword, the last Zelda outing on the Wii.
The Mario and Zelda creator explained, "Because of the hardware limitations [of the Wii], what we always had to do was segment off each area and piece those segments together in a way that made them feel like a big world. But now, with the hardware capabilities of the Wii U, what we did is we first started by saying, 'Let's see what we can do if we take an entire world the size of the world from Twilight Princess and just try to make that as one area in the game."
"What we're trying to do is design it in a way that you don't necessarily have to sit down and play it for a super long time," Miyamoto-san went on. "But, kind of, more matched to today's lifestyle where you think for a little bit and say, 'Maybe I just want to play for a little bit today and do this one thing, get that done, and then take a break’.
The Legend Of Zelda Wii U as it has been provisionally named is due for release on the Wii U towards the end of 2015.
