The Legend of Zelda: Brainstorming Adventures

So, after the disappointing event yesterday, I've calmed down and Miyamoto gave us some statements about some of the core franchises including Zelda. The good thing is, they actually want to take Zelda some steps further and want some big unique ideas for the next Zelda game on the Wii. The bad thing is, it seems like they don't have any yet. According to Miyamoto, it looks like they're still in their brainstorming phase and try to find those ideas, which will revolutionize the Zelda franchise. Though on the other hand creating a First Person Zelda would be a too drastic change for Miyamoto, which I don't understand, because in combination with their new WiiMotion Plus accessory a first person perspective would be the perfect choice for sword fighting and all other actions. And experiencing Zelda in a new perspective could be the fresh wind, the series needs so badly.

Also, if I understood the statement on IGN right, the smaller Zelda team responsible for Four Swords Adventures and Phantom Hourglass is working on their own new project, though some teammembers swapped places with the Wii Zelda team. That's pretty much good news for me, because I was hoping for a second NDS Zelda or maybe a WiiWare Zelda, which probably could be finished some time before the next Wii Zelda, maybe end of 2009.

Also, absolutely no news about Retro Studios and their newest project, if there's one. Disappointing.
