Today’s Nintendo Direct video was filled with some amazing and exciting announcements for the Wii-U! A new Yoshi Game (from the creators of Kirby!), a new MarioKart, a new Mario 3D and probably what will have gamers most excited- a brand new Zelda!

Series producer Eiji Aonuma, the team developing Zelda’s Wii U debut, were tasked to “rethink the conventions of Zelda”. The teams goal: “create a newborn Zelda so players today can enjoy the real essence of the franchise.” Two notable mechanics they they look to change up: dungeons must be done in a specific order and that gamers play alone (a hint at co-op?)
