Many Nintendo fans were disappointed by the company's showing at E3 this year. Most notably, the upcoming Legend of Zelda game for Wii U was totally absent from their digital presentation. We heard exactly zero peeps about it. Some worried that this meant the title was being canceled, especially since Nintendo recently announced that they're working on a new console. Does that mean they're giving up on Zelda for the Wii U? Not at all, says Shigeru Miyamoto:
"We're here to talk about Star Fox but Zelda is still coming to Wii U, so don't worry about that. My thing with E3 is that we always focus on what's coming out in the immediate future. We have some really great Zelda footage and, at some point we will be showing that off, but not today."
Miyamoto's statement may also shed a little light on why Nintendo's E3 presentation was so underwhelming: the company chose to focus on highlighting the short term. The presentation showed us titles that are coming in the near future, rather than teasing projects that are years away. And though it made for a lackluster performance, I can respect that. They didn't give us any new titles to be pissed about being delayed.
