As revealed on Miiverse on Wednesday, June 11, following Nintendo’s confirmation of two new additions to The Legend of Zelda series, the company’s Eiji Aonuma reassured the authenticity of the teaser for the next Zelda title on Wii U as genuine in-game footage.
“Many people from the media kept asking me if the footage from the new Zelda game for Wii U is just a promotional movie, but that really is actual gameplay on Wii U,” Aonuma explained in a statement.
“Also,” Aonuma added, “I wasn’t kidding about how you will be able to reach the mountains that appear in the distance if you should choose to!”
The Legend of Zelda for Wii U, which is no doubt still a working title, is slated to release in 2015. The game is said to focus on being open-world, as players will allegedly no longer be restricted by map boundaries.
