Our good friends at Hiddentriforce.com were introduced to some possibly interesting E3 information. None of this can be confirmed by us or The Hidden Triforce staff.

Last month Nintendo announced that the highly anticipated Zelda Wii U launch would be delayed into 2016. But, according to this information, that doesn’t mean Nintendo has abandon announcing anything Zelda related during E3 2015.

Below is the rumored information about the upcoming Zelda Wii U title.

  • Zelda Wii U, while previously pushed from the E3 event list will still make some kind of an appearance. Official art and a trailer will be shown. Nintendo changed their mind as in attempt to sustain momentum for their Wii U console.
  • Zelda Wii U will work with several different Amiibo models. Using an Amiibo will provide Link with a daily item that he can use. For instance, Link can be given a fairy or a potion-like power-up. This ability can only be used once a day.
  • Zelda Wii U will support both the GamePad and the Wii U Pro Controller.
  • There will be a form of fast travel within the game. The overworld is so large that riding a horse or walking simply is not feasible later in the game. While Epona has been shown to avoid obstacles on her own, fans would quickly grow weary of sitting around waiting. Nintendo wants to avoid complaints similar to the sailing in The Wind Waker.
  • Ganondorf/Ganon will not be the main villain. Similar to Skyward Sword, there will be some kind of connection to the game’s main lore, but a new foe will appear.
  • The Wii U GamePad controller will allow gamers to scan the environment and to take notes to be referenced later.
  • The game will feature a lot of “darker” themes, similar to what we saw in Majora’s Mask. NPC will have a more icons role than some of the recent titles. There will be more of an emotional connection.
  • While not surprising, the game will have different sets of overworld enemies for night and day times.
  • Zelda Wii U will feature Gorons. Zoras have not been seen yet, but there will be at least 2 new “races”.

The source wasn’t finished there. According to the leak the following Nintendo announcements will be made, along with all the Zelda news.

  • Nintendo will reveal a new Mario title. There have been some murmurings revolving around a return to Isle Delfino for a Mario Sunshine 2.
  • A new Metroid game will be revealed for the Wii U.
  • The already confirmed Star Fox game will include both space and land sequences. It will also have online multiplayer, in a game style similar to Star Fox 64 battle mode.

Once again this information isn’t anything more than a rumor but it’s still fun to speculate. What do you think about these rumors?
