Iwata confirms new Zelda, Vitality Sensor software showings for E3

The subject of whether or not the new Zelda game for the Wii would be revealed at E3 2010 has been danced around long enough; after hints and suggestions, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has confirmed that Link’s next outing will indeed be unveiled at the industry event this summer.

“… we will show the new Zelda title for Wii at this year’s E3,” Iwata simply said during the company’s third quarter financial results briefing.

During the briefing, a summer 2010 release for Metroid Other M was also confirmed, as well as the first software showing for the Wii Vitality Sensor which will also take place at E3.
