Zelda Wii set for 2010, first details on DS successor

Nintendo was originally iffy on whether or not the next Zelda would be released by the end of this year, but Nintendo’s CEO Satoru Iwata has set a solid 2010 release date. It is unknown what region this date is for in specific, so some regions may have to wait until 2011 depending on how late in the year Zelda Wii launches.

Iwata spoke briefly on the DS successor saying that the system will have “highly detailed graphics” and include motion controls similar to that of the Wii.

Iwata also noted that they plan on showing off software for the Wii Vitality Sensor in July.

  1. Awesome! I heard of the Zelda Wii details on Twitter earlier on today, but the DS2 motion controls? Sounds a bit strange, but if it’s pulled off well hopefully it’ll be good!

  2. Motion controls on DS… My initial reaction is that I hate Nintendo forever for doing that to one of the greatest systems ever created, but at the same time, Motion control games have always been best on handhelds. Sure Yoshi Topsy Turvey sucked, but if all handheld motion games would be as awesome as Kirby Tilt ‘n’ Tumble and WarioWare Twisted, we could be okay…

    But I’m a pessimist and a cynic, so basically I’m going to say right away that if the next handheld has motion controls, I’m officially done buying new games. MOTION CONTROLS SUCK! (Holy cow, I typed a lot)
