In a behind-closed-doors meeting that was supposed to be about Super Mario Galaxy at last week's E3, game designer legend Shigeru Miyamoto and director of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Eiji Aonuma got off topic when they started to discuss the newest addition to the Zelda series, The Phantom Hourglass. Pointing out that the control scheme has brought the gameplay and puzzle solving to a new level, PH has already become one of the biggest selling handheld games of all time in Japan.
Surprising everyone, Aonuma continued on his thread and started talking about the excitement he has for the next Zelda chapter for the Wii. With Miyamoto trying to hold his lips for him, Aonuma talked with excitement about the control scheme for the next Wii Zelda game and how he hopes it will simplify gameplay in order to be accessable to casual and hardcore gamers alike.
