Plenty of things in life get lost in translation, but hopefully this isn't one of them. French website Power-Nintendo has a correspondent in Japan, who recently attended a live event for Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. According to the website, Zelda overlord Eiji Aonuma let slip a big secret slip: we'll see a new Zelda at E3.

While such a statement is out of character for Nintendo's higher-ups, with the company's new home console set to be unveiled it wouldn't be a surprise to see Link make an appearance alongside it. According to P-Nintendo, the game will be part of the Zelda 25th anniversary celebrations, pointing to a release sometime this year.

With Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword both scheduled for release this year, would a third Zelda game be overkill? Let your thoughts be known in the comments section below.
