Zelda’s Wii U adventure arrives in fall 2015, first look debuts at The Game Awards

We may not know what the next Zelda game is called, but we do know that it’s coming to Wii U in late 2015, thanks to a reveal from Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto and Eiji Aonuma at the 2014 Game Awards. It’s the first we’ve heard since the game’s surprise reveal at E3 2014.

Miyamoto sat with Aonuma as the latter played an early build of Zelda for Wii U, giving a glimpse at the game’s large world and little bits of play, including the return of Link’s horse, Epona. The two also teased the fact that Miyamoto’s Star Fox game, revealed behind closed doors at E3 2014, will arrive in 2015 as well, before Zelda on Wii U and after the Nintendo 3DS remake of Majora’s Mask, which is due for release in the spring.

We’ll update this post with the video as soon as it’s online, but you can get a sense of what was shown from Nintendo’s tweets below.
