The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes is out on 3DS this week, so it's clearly a vital release for Nintendo at the present time. The minds of franchise fans are always looking forward, however, with the delay of The Legend of Zelda for Wii U into 2016 at the top of many priority lists.

It's with that in mind that an upcoming Famitsu feature could be particularly interesting. Though focused on Tri Force Heroes, an interview with Eiji Aonuma, Shiro Mouri and Hiromasa Shikata will have a small segment that'll discuss the Wii U title and the fact that 2016 will be the 30th Anniversary of The Legend of Zelda on NES.

Nintendo tied various events, promotions and even The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword into 25th Anniversary celebrations for the series in the past, so naturally there's hope that the big N has special plans for next year. Any news on the Wii U title is welcome, meanwhile, though we perhaps shouldn't expect too much from this Famitsu article on that score - the preview images show the focus is very much on Tri Force Heroes.

We'll be watching closely, in any case; the issue is due to drop in early November.
