Zelda Wii U Will Feature A Brand New Villain According To Official Nintendo Website

Nintendo Japan’s official website features a very short description of the upcoming Legend of Zelda title for the Wii U. What’s interesting is it mentions that Link will be faced with a brand new nemesis. We will probably see Ganon in some capacity, but we will inevitably have to wait a while until we find out who this new nemesis is.

“This software is a Wii U Edition new legend of Zelda series. Faced with mysteries in the world of Zelda spread indefinitely without boundaries, a new link, a new nemesis.”

  1. Nice, maybe another incarnation of Demise’s hatred…

    Demise, Ganon, Malladus, who will the fourth one be…

      1. They are not the incarnations of Demise because neither of them are Demon Kings…

      2. I don’t think Bellum had any desire to become demon king, it was just an evil causing devastation
        and Vaati was trying to become demon king

        Besides, Demise didn’t specify that his incarnation would become a Demon King, he said his hatred would live on to destroy those with the blood of the Hero and the Goddess

        Bellum targeted Tetra so he fulfilled that
        and Vaati as well

      3. It appears I may have miscalculated

        Majora and Bellum may not be reincarnations of Demise seeing as how Majora appears to be from an alternate dimension and Bellum may have been all apart of a dream

        However Malladas is controversial as he was around even before Zelda and Link were born

        Like

      4. Majora’s Mask is probably something that was born from evil but not really the source of it just like Bellum probably was…

        Well you have to take into account of what happens in Wind Waker…

        Ganondorf attacked Hyrule but the intro said that the hero did not show up, either no one knew who the hero would be or there simply was no “incarnation” of the hero at all during that time, forcing the godesses to flood the lands…

        Whether Zelda’s “incarnation” wa spresent at that time we can only speculate…

        So in essence, both Ganondorf and Malladus existed before the heroes were born, making Malladus highly likely to be one incarnation of Demise’s hatred…

      7. But then again, if the Wind Waker Link was not a descendant of the SS Link, then Malladus and Bellum may not be incarnations of Demise at all

        Like

      8. Well considering Demise was practically a God, it would make sense for his hatred to be outside the space and time continuum making it possible for manifest in endless of timelines…

        And since Hylia is most likely the Godess of time, her essence must then also exist outside it which makes it possible for any of Link’s decendants to be born in any time line…

        I think it’s pretty much safe to say that Ganondorf, Link and Zelda all had their divine fate originated from SS but we can not say that to be true 100% yet so both our opinions might still come true in the future…

        What makes one thing the most interesting is Ghirahim’s fate…

        If he just disappeared and went somewhere else when Demise was defeated, does it mean that Demise might have had a creator or master himself?…

        Like

      9. I think Demise created his sword with Ghirahim as the spirit of it as Fi was to Hylia’s Goddess/Master Sword

        Perhaps as a backup way for Demise to be resurrected if he was ever sealed by Hylia, which was the case and Ghirahim was there to do exactly that

        I don’t think Demise had a creator and that he was never defeated but sealed in his final curse

        Like

      10. You mean something like he put a large portion of his “spirit” into Ghirahim?…

        That would make much sense too, similar to Sauron and the One Ring…

        Like

      11. Perhaps, Ghirahim’s only purpose was to resurrect his master Demise
        Fi’s purpose was to guide her master chosen by her own creator Hylia

        Ghirahim may be apart of Demise or maybe he was not, after all, Demise was king of demons who served him faithfully

        Fi, however helpful, was kinda annoying as well, check this video

      12. Actually, Nayru is the Goddess of Time. Her color is blue. Blue is used to represent time. The Harp of Ages possessed by the Oracle of Ages (Ages=Time) could be used to travel through time. The Ocarina of Time is also blue. Hylia is a lesser god compared to Din, Nayru, & Farore so there is no way she’d be the Goddess of Time. And who better to wield total control over time than someone who is wise, like Nayru, the Goddess of Wisdom, enough to not misuse it. I mean, would you give that kind of control over to a lesser being like say a human or a lesser god that is actually prone to the same weaknesses as humans? I know I wouldn’t.

      13. I’ve played every single non-spin off Zelda game, pay attention to every little detail within the games (sometimes stuff that others might even overlook,) & I’ve read through Hyrule Historia. In fact, Hyrule Historia even clarified some things that I once could only theorize about. Like the Hero’s Spirit of Twilight Princess being the Hero of Time. Plus, Nintendo likes to use certain colors to represent certain things.

      14. That’s cool. I don’t know much of anything about Zelda because I haven’t played the games. I heard someone say that Skyward Sword is the origin of Zelda or something like that, so I suppose it would be a good idea for me to play that. And I should play Ocarina of Time too. I play Zelda games mainly because of the story and gameplay, but I never actually finish them because I usually find them boring near the end. I want to play more Zelda games to see if I might like it more and I’m glad a Wii U game is coming. If I can’t finish Zelda U, then, well… Zelda games probably just aren’t for me. XD

      15. If it’s story you really like, I say play Skyward Sword. It’s very story driven, unlike previous entries, so it might be the best game to play if you aren’t use to the Zelda series & haven’t played many of them. This way, you’ll be able to appreciate the game for what it is instead of whining about what it’s not like some people have with Skyward Sword. *cough*Donko*cough*

      16. Blood relation has nothing to do with Demise’s curse in Link’s case. Zelda’s, yes, but not Link’s. Demise specifically targeted all with “the blood of the goddess” meaning Zelda’s descendants and “the SPIRIT of the hero”, which doesn’t necessarily have to be a descendant of Link. So far, we only have two Links that are explicitly related by blood, and that would be Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess Link.

        Like

      17. True about Demise’s curse but that doesn’t negate the possibility that every Link has been a blood descendant since there is a belief in familial reincarnation: meaning reincarnation must occur within a family bloodline. So we don’t know what kind of reincarnation Nintendo is using. Nintendo has shown they will use the mythology of other belief systems to fuel their own creations, not just their country’s belief system. Kid Icarus being one such case of Japan using another belief system. With Zelda, Nintendo has created it’s own mythology for the series while also borrowing little bits & pieces from other mythologies. Til Miyamoto and/or Aonuma come out & say it, we can only guess & make up our own theories with the Zelda series.

      18. Demise is ganon. There is enough evidence that he his.
        1.) White scar on his head, ganon had that same scar on him in twilight princess. It’s some sort of weakness.
        2.) he has the opposite master sword. it clearly looked like the master sword, but it was black, jagged and more fierce.
        3.) He clearly said that he, link, and zelda will continue to be reincarnated and fight for seemingly eternity. the only people being reincarnated is link, zelda and ganondorf. the only reason demise looked different from ganondorf was because the same thing happened with hylia when she became zelda. she gave up her godly form. And im pretty sure ganondorf did the same and gave up his demonic form and became ganondorf.
        4.) Demise and ganondorf have about the same bodily features, not to mention hair color

        Like

      19. I have a theory that Kotake & Koume are either servants of Demise or descendants of one of Demise’s servants. Anyway, I believe they raised Ganondorf because they knew he was Demise reincarnated. Hell, maybe even the Gerudo came into existence because of Demise’s curse to give birth to his reincarnation every time a reincarnation died. There is some proof to this, though, as Ganondorf from Four Swords Adventures, like the previous Ganondorf before him, was born in the Gerudo Tribe. It might not be proof that the Gerudo were created by this curse but it does show their race has some kind of unlucky connection to Demise. Maybe they are the children of some kind of fling Demise had with a mortal. It would also explain why only one male can be born from the Gerudo race every 200 years. Who knows. Maybe that fling Demise had was with Kotake & Koume, fused as Twinrova. lol After all, we don’t know how old these two really are. It’s possible they could have been alive back during Demise’s time. But as I said, this is just a theory.

  4. Personally I think this Zelda will probably involve the Gates of Time where Link travels back in time to the age when Hylia and Demise had their full power…

    That robotic thing that chases Link in the teaser has a very familiar resemblance to the Robots in Lanayru Desert…

    And at that time, they had way more advanced technology than in any other time after what it seems…

    Like

    1. Or the game takes place sometime between Skyward Sword & the founding of Hyrule. There sure was a lot of untouched land in the trailer we saw & we only saw 3 major areas in Skyward Sword: Faron Woods, what will eventually become Death Mountain, & Lanayru Desert which will eventually become the Gerudo Desert. Maybe there were other areas in the land that had robots & some just so happen to have been corrupted by Demise & his forces. So many theories & points in the Zelda timeline that we could assume from that teaser.

  5. It’s pretty obvious. In twilight princess all they showed was Zant making people think he was the main boss later to reveal that Ganondorf was behind it all. Same with skyward sword. They only showed Ghirahim and this weird looking black monster who was imprisoned and at the end turned out that the end boss was Demise. I love when zelda games does that and i’m pretty sure Ganondorf will be the end boss in this one.

    Like

    1. Sadly, I think Ganondorf was just thrown into Twilight Princess as a last minute thing & that’s one of the reasons the game was delayed. Like me, others will recall that Twilight Princess had quite a few delays before finally being released.

  6. I always have see that the only reincarnation that follows (always) the blood line is Zelda, as the name suggest, Link is only a hero that may or not appear in a time period, and the devil demon incarnation only appear if the last one is forever destroyed… Also I like to think that many of the links had “happy endings” with Zelda, but also, some of them had descendant like in twilight princess, and didn’t end with Zelda.

    1. I wouldn’t say many of them. Just a few of them. ESPECIALLY the Links & Zeldas that were close friends. The two that came to my mind are Skyward Sword Link & Zelda & Minish Cap Link & Zelda. As for Ocarina of Time Link, I think he either ended up with Malon or came across Ordon Village & fell in love with a girl there.

  11. This is why voice acting is needed. Boxes of text block any emotion conveyed from the dialog. On top of that you must constantly press A o keep the conversation going, breaking any sense of immersion. As long as everyone except link is given a voice, the world can truly come alive with the whimsical setting. If text boxes are kept, they could at least get rid of the “Box” so I can see what’s going on and have the scenes progress automatically.

    1. I love it when Ganon isn’t the villain of a Zelda game. It gives us a chance to see Nintendo get creative with the design & personality of the villain.

  15. I love it when they get creative with a main Zelda villain & not rely on Ganon. I hope this game takes place between Skyward Sword & Ocarina of Time so we can hopefully see another villain with a connection to Demise. Maybe a general that tries to take control of Demise’s forces & tries to make himself, or herself, into the new Demon King, or a Demon Queen if it’s a she. In fact, I think it’s time we get a female villain that isn’t serving another. After all, Veran was serving Twinrova in order to revive Ganon, so she was never committing evil for herself.

  16. How about Majora itself. The evil was the mask not Majora themselves. What if one of two things happen
    1) moon crashes Link nowhere to be found. Majora completely is reborn somehow and the world is taken over by technological things see spider robot in trailer.

    2) takes place before Majoras mask where Majora is originally wiped out. The giants could have wiped out the spiders with Link actually wiping Majora out itself.

    I really think it’s something Majora related. Way too many hints towards something Majoras Mask related especially the mask in Link Between Worlds
