Nintendo teases 'new Zelda games' via 3DS Swapnote

Eiji Aonuma pleased with Zelda's 25 anniversary celebrations

Nintendo has teased 3DS owners with the prospect of new Zelda games in the near future with a tantilising Swapnote message.


Swapnote, in case you're unaware, is a brilliant 3DS app that lets owners send a receive hand-drawn notes from other users and Nintendo themselves.

According to Kotaku, a new note from Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma arrived today, saying: "Hello, this is Aonuma, Nintendo's Legend of Zelda producer. Did you enjoy The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D? Thanks to everyone, the Legend of Zelda series had a very happy 25th anniversary."

He went on to tease: "I hope you're looking forward to new Legend of Zelda games," in a note adorned with awesome Zelda sprites.

We say 'according to Kotaku' because we just checked our Swapnote inbox and this message wasn't there. Perhaps it's a regional roll-out.

Nintendo has previously confirmed that an 'all-new' Legend of Zelda game is being worked on for 3DS, but is yet to reveal any specific information on the title.

All eyes on E3 in June.
