No other details at this point.

Legend of Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has said that Wii U’s first Zelda game will see many changes from the tech demo shown off at this year’s E3.

“We’re definitely excited about the Wii U and its capabilities as a platform,” Aonuma told Official Nintendo Magazine UK. “Of course I can’t really tell you any details about that at this point. However, I should say the demo you saw at E3 is more of a starting point at this time, especially from a graphical standpoint. You should expect many changes… our starting point is the gameplay and how we can make it work. It’s possible the game will look very different by the time it comes out.”

Aonuma also told the magazine Wii U’s Zelda could feature items cut from Skyward Sword, the series’ forthcoming Wii release.

“We had many ideas for new abilities in Skyward Sword. Some of them didn’t work and so we abandoned them. Some of them, though, we’re keeping,” said Aonuma. “Even though we couldn’t make them work in this game, we felt they’re still good ideas. Maybe we can make them work on the Wii U. It’s possible you might see them in another game we make in this series.”

Skyward Sword, is due for Wii on November 20.

    I have a great deal of confidence in the team behind the Zelda series.
    Just make the game challenging and I’ll be happy.

    Oh, and if it looks anywhere near as detailed as the tech demo at E3 was,
    that’d be great too.
