Aonuma: Wii U Zelda Will Challenge Series Conventions

"Expect big things"

We've only had a few weeks of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, but already series producer Eiji Aonuma is thinking about Zelda on Wii U.

Speaking to Nintendo Power (via GoNintendo), Aonuma touched on what users can expect from the next home console entry in the 25-year old series:

Skyward Sword is a title where we took aim at all the conventions of the Zelda series. While that may have been difficult, I think that confronting those challenges resulted in something that has a great deal of value. When it comes to Wii U, we'll obviously want to add new elements that take advantage of the capabilities of the platform. I think using that as a lens through which we once again challenge the conventions of Zelda is more important than just making another Zelda game. With that in mind, please expect big things from the Zelda series to come!

It may be a little early to start looking forward to E3 2012, but considering some ditched Skyward Sword ideas may make it into Zelda Wii U we're just a little bit excited already.
