New Nintendo Wii Zelda and Pikmin Games in Development

In an interview with Latin America’s Club Nintendo Magazine, Miyamoto and Reggie spilled a couple of beans.

The Zelda team is currently hard at work on a Nintendo Wii only Zelda game which will take full advantage of the Wii. Also hinted at is a new Nintendo DS Zelda game.

CN: The fans want you to develop a title like The Legend of Zelda with all the functionality of the Wii, like the Wii Motion Plus. We know we have a Zelda on Wii already, but it was a title made really as a Gamecube project.

SM: Yes, we have The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess for Wii and Gamecube, but right now our Zelda team is working on a Zelda specifically for Wii; we were simply not ready to show it

CN: The title Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass was very successful for the Nintendo DS. Will there be new titles from the series for this system?

SM: Well, we have two teams for Zelda and Mr. Aonuma is immersed in many of the operations. He was even involved with Link’s Crossbow Training; we say he is a very busy man.

A new Pikmin game is also in the works for the Wii, which will make full use of the Wiimote.

CN: Some fans were waiting for an announcement of a new Luigi, Pit, or Pikmin title. What do you say to that?

SM: There are things that we’re not ready to reveal for this show, but I can tell you that we’re working on a new Pikmin and the Wii Remote is very well suited to a Pikmin game.
