Nintendo has secret ideas for The Legend of Zelda on 3DS

Nintendo has ideas for a new Legend of Zelda game for Nintendo 3DS, though series creator Shigeru Miyamoto isn't sharing what those are just yet.

In response to a question during the company's 74th annual shareholders meeting, Miyamoto said that there are "a few titles under development" in the long-running adventure game series. Those include Hyrule Warriors, the Dynasty Warriors-like action game from Koei Tecmo, and the unnamed open world Zelda game for Wii U that premiered during E3 2014.

Miyamoto said that  Nintendo is "gradually changing the structure of The Legend of Zelda series," as it did with The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, the 3DS entry from 2013 that let players tackle dungeons in whatever order they liked.

"In addition to that," he said, "we have ideas for Nintendo 3DS which we have not announced yet, so I hope you will look forward to them."
