Big news for Nintendo fans today, as Satoru Iwata, Nintendo president, issued a statement today promising a new Wii Zelda title for 2010 and provided the first details on the high-end successor to the DS.

Iwata said the new high-spec DS will feature “highly detailed graphics, and it will be necessary to have a sensor with the ability to read the movements of people playing”.

Rumors of this new revision have already been swirling, as this summer brought news of this new DS supporting NVIDIA’s Tegra Tech, which seems validated by Iwata’s statements today.

As for the first Wii Zelda sequel, the man only said it would arrive sometime in 2010, which leaves the company open to many possible release dates.

The new Zelda

One thing’s for sure, at this year’s E3 Convention, Nintendo is likely to spill the beans on everything hinted at today.

    It’s almost the end of April and I still don’t see any possibilities this game will be out. The reason I bought Wii is because I wanted to play the new Legend Of Zelda, exclusively for Wii. Not some game that has been ported from GameCube to Wii such as the Twilight Princess.
