Satoru Iwata – Misinterpreted – No Zelda in 2010? – No New Handheld?

No Motion Sensing Handheld

During a recent interview with CEO of Nintendo Japan, the local Japanese newspaper “Asahi Shimbun” (one of the biggest newspaper franchises in Japan) reported that details on a supposed up and coming Nintendo Handheld with motion sensing technology. Though, it turns out that the preceding was in fact due to a misinterpretation on the part of the reporter to which the question was answered. It is stated: “Mr. Iwata did not make any comments regarding the functions of Nintendo’s future hardware systems”. Thus, no motion sensing handheld, at least for now.

Zelda Wii Slated for 2010?

Further, the newspaper also previously stated that the latest installment in the Zelda series(the untitled game set for Wii), would be released in the 4th quarter of the year 2010. Inversely, during the latest episode of  Nintendo Week for Wii, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime did not commit to a date, and kept saying the game would be perfect upon release, whilst also mentioning that this was the philosophy of his fellow colleagues; Eiji Aonuma, and Shigeru Miyamoto.

As per Kotaku
