The Producer of The Legend of Zelda Confirms E3 Trailer was Gameplay Footage

The Legend of Zelda Producer, Eiji Aonuma, speaks about the trailer that debuted at E3 this year.

The Legend of Zelda for the Wii U is one of the most anticipated titles to come out for the Wii U in 2015. The trailer debuted at this year's E3 in Los Angeles and while there was speculation the main character in that trailer wasn't Link, the trailer has received many positive reviews.

While that is an impressive trailer all on its own, the Producer of the game Eiji Aonuma confirmed to the  Nintendo Miiverse that this is actual gameplay footage from the Wii U. He also went on to make a little joke about his E3 video saying that you CAN totally go see the mountains. 

 “Many people from the media kept asking me if the footage from the new Zelda game for Wii U is just a promotional movie, but that really is actual gameplay on Wii U,” Aonuma assures. “Also, I wasn’t kidding about how you will be able to reach the mountains that appear in the distance if you should choose to!”

Does this information about the latest Legend of Zelda have you even more excited about the possibilities in this game? This Wii U version is looking like it could be a contender for my new favorite Zelda game.
