Nintendo confirm that a new Zelda title for the Wii is already in development, while Link's latest on the DS is delayed...
The latest issue of Game Informer has confirmed that the next home console chapter of the Zelda series has already begun production, and has already been in production for about a year!
Unlike Twilight Princess, a GameCube title for most of its life, this new Zelda is being developed specifically for the Wii. Miyamoto has said that Twilight Princess was the last Zelda as we knew it, so it seems the new title may see bring in a new style of gameplay for the series.
Although Game Informer states that we could see the title "sooner than expected", it would be highly unlikely to release next year, just twelve months after Twilight Princess. We'd peg it at a 2008 release.
Meanwhile, in other Zelda news, the DS' upcoming Phantom Hourglass (sequel to the GameCube's sublimely cel-shaded Wind Waker) has been delayed until October 2007. Apparently the title has undergone major re-working since we last saw it at E3 2006.
