This year's Ocarina of Time remake is currently tiding us over, but frankly, us 3DS owners are hungry for more Zelda. Thankfully it seems that Nintendo are planning to sate our appetite with a brand new title designed specifically for the system. In an interview with Portuguese site MyGames (translated via Nintendo Everything), Producer Eiji Aonuma revealed that development has already begun, and it won't be a direct sequel to either Spirit Tracks or Phantom Hourglass.
"We are already preparing a new game, a game in the series for the Nintendo 3DS, but don't think that it is a direct sequel to the Zelda titles released on DS. We are talking about a new game, but it takes much of what has been done on previous handhelds."
Awesome. Perhaps it could be a follow-up to Skyward Sword? Regardless, all I know is that the 3DS needs more big first-party heavy hitters in order to stay relevant, and this can't come soon enough.
