New Zelda Wii U/NX Artwork Revealed, See It Here

Nintendo's next Zelda console game is coming out next year.


As part of its announcement today that the new Legend of Zelda game will launch for Wii U and NX in 2017, Nintendo also released a new piece of artwork for the game. It shows off main character Link, who we see wielding some kind of bow, while he also has a mysterious item strapped to his belt.

People on NeoGAF are offering their ideas for what secrets may be embedded in the image, while someone pointed out that the object around Link's waist looks like a Hearthstone card.

The Legend of Zelda for Wii U/NX is launching sometime in 2017. It was previously expected to come out in 2016, but the delay--and the confirmation of an NX edition--was announced today as part of Nintendo's latest earnings report. As for the NX, the system goes on sale in March 2017.

We're likely to learn more about the new Zelda game at E3, but Nintendo does not plan to show off the NX during the summer show.

This won't be the first time Nintendo has released the same Zelda game for multiple platforms, as the company launched The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess for GameCube and Wii.
