People, who have been gaming for a massively long time, will never forget the legendary Zelda and how it shaped the whole gaming industry as we see today.

While it was rumored for quite some time that a new 'Zelda' game could be in works for the next-gen gaming console, more reports have started flowing in on that matter.

A new batch of details has emerged for the game as an anonymous source has leaked out a bunch of details to Zelda Informer. Although these details may seem completely irrational or bogus, since none of this is officially confirmed, they are quite interesting to follow, especially when something like 'Zelda' is in the forefront.

The site reveals that the game could be announced at the E3 2013, although it is highly unlikely that the game will officially hit the store shelves before early 2014, as it is still in development stages. An eShop demo may also be on the cards this year.

It was stated that it will feature a very different art style than the HD tech demo shown off when the Wii U was first unveiled. "Early concept artwork looks like they're sticking with Skyward Sword's style for now."

"Another big talking point about the insider's leak is that the art style for the game has apparently been 'altered' to be in line of the design seen in Skyward Sword, rather than the more realistic, non cartoony visuals that we saw in the fantastic tech demo," a PR report says.

"We really hope that this part doesn't turn out to be true, as the tech demo looked fantastic in our opinion and it's definitely time to move on from the cartoon style Zelda graphics and move along into next-generation tech with cutting edge visuals."

Apparently, Nintendo of Japan was surprised at how well-received the relationship was between Link and Zelda in Skyward Sword and now the company intends to provide more insight with a new game in the form of Zelda U.

"Because this dynamic was favored more in the West than by Japanese audiences, Nintendo of America is looking to popular American romance stories. Names like Twilight and 50 Shades of Grey have popped up in conversation, but the extent to which they will inspire the next Zelda is unknown," the report adds.

Now it is to be seen as to how much influence Skyward Sword actually has on the new 'Zelda' game.
