Hyrule Warriors is the tentative title for the new game and is being developed in partnership with Dynasty Warriors developer Tecmo Koei. The teaser trailer released shows an adult Link hacking and slashing his way through hordes of enemies.
The game is currently scheduled to be released sometime in 2014 though Nintendo does not narrow the release date down any further than that. Additionally, this game should be considered an offshoot of the Zelda series and is not the main The Legend of Zelda title that was first teased when the Wii U was announced.
Details on a new mainline Zelda title have still yet to be revealed other than series co-creator Eiji Aonuma saying that the game was in the experimental phase back in July as the team tries ways to change the gameplay mechanics and dungeon exploring.
