Zelda smorgasbord: Skyward Sword trailer, later release date, Ocarina screens and mystery project

Several morsels of Zelda information were released during the San Francisco Game Developers Conference 2011 over the last few days, with the most recent being a brand new trailer for the latest Wii game in the franchise, “Skyward Sword.” While the brand-new, gameplay-toting trailer is quite a treat for Zelda fans, the accompanying news is certainly not.

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime told the press that the game would be showcased during the E3 videogame conference in June, which means it is undoubtedly missing its initial alleged launch window of early 2011.

However, fans of the series may still have something to look forward to before then, “The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D.” Nintendo President Satoru Iwata mention off-handedly that he hopes to have the game released for the 3DS by June.

New screenshots of the title were also shown, displaying adult Link’s updated look for the first time, a few of the temples, much higher-definition textures, enemies and a real-time rendered shop backdrop rather than the prerendered one that appeared in the 1998 release.

Iwata also announced that Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto was working on something in honor of the 25th anniversary of the series. What exactly it is that he’s working on is unknown at this time, but according to Iwata, it will be released before the end of the year.
