New The Legend of Zelda title headed to Wii U in 2015

At Tuesday’s E3 presentation, Nintendo showed off the next game in its venerable The Legend of Zelda series.

The trailer showed off a new art style with updated visuals, as the first HD title in the series. In it we see Link riding his horse into battle against a robot-like monster chasing him through an expansive field.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

Nintendo’s Eiji Aonuma talked about how they were able to use the Wii U’s processing power to create a vast, interconnected world, the likes of which they couldn’t in past systems. Unlike most previous titles in the series, this should allow for a less linear progression through the game.

The game is set for release in 2015.
