Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto has finally said the words we all wanted to hear: "We want to create a real HD Zelda game for [Wii U]."
Sure, Nintendo showed off a Zelda HD tech demo running on Wii U at E3 this month, but it made a point of repeatedly stating none of the software on show represented real games.
That statement may be true, in that an eventual Zelda release may not look anything like the demo (remember that start difference between the Zelda GameCube tech demo at Spaceworld 2000 and the final look of Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker that came after it).
Nevertheless, it's official. "[Wii U] is an HD system, our first HD system, and we want to create a real HD Zelda game for it," said Miyamoto.
"You will see a lot of these in-depth and deep experiences in terms of visual style. You will also see some play styles that are fun and interesting because of the play structure," he added.
Fingers crossed it'll look just like the hyper-detailed demo we saw if not better.
