The Legend of Zelda for Wii U is among the most anticipated Nintendo games that industry watchers would love to have released this year.

Various news report that Nintendo?s Zelda for Wii U will be announced at the E3 event which will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center from June 10 to 12.

It could be remembered that in E3 2011, Nintendo had introduced a demo reel that showed Link fighting a monster in HD. Moreover in January 2013, Nintendo announced its plan of launching an unnamed Zelda title for the Wii U.

The Legend of Zelda is an action-adventure game series created by Japanese designers namely Shigeru Miyamoto, Takashi Tezuka and Eiji Aonuma. It was developed and published by Nintendo and was considered its most popular franchise so far. It also has some portable installments outsourced to Flagship/Capcom, Vanpool, and Grezzo.

It could also be remembered that Aonuma had announced that they will unveil more about the new Wii U Zelda title at E3 2014.

The Legend of Zelda series which consists of 17 official games on all of Nintendo’s major consoles, centers primarily on Link, the playable character who is tasked to rescue Princess Zelda and a fantasy land called Hyrule from Ganondorf, a Gerudo thief. This fantasy land is the place where elfin humanoids called the Hylians, which include Link, and Princess Zelda lives.

The Legend of Zelda commonly involves a relic called the Triforce, a set of three omnipotent golden triangles which embodies one of the goddesses’ virtues: Power, Courage and Wisdom. This Triforce has the power to grant the wishes of its user. Ganondorf, the thief, gained the Triforce of Power, Hylian princesses descended from Zelda got the Triforce of Wisdom, and Link got the Triforce of Courage.

Aside from Zelda, the following are also expected to be released this year: Metroid, Pokemon, Star, and A Killer New IP. Moreover, there are reports that as part of the most exciting games, aside from the Legend of Zelda, what would be introduced at E3 2014 are: Fallout 4, Far Cry 4, Assassin?s Creed Unity, and Halo 5.
