Nintendo of America president Reggie has said in an interview with Nintendo Week (via CVG) that the new Zelda in development for the Wii must be "perfect".
He said: "Right now it's still in development but the key message that Mr Aonuma and Mr Miyamoto are telling us is that it really has to be perfect when it launches. That is what the fans are expecting.
"So for all the Zelda fans out there right now, I'd say enjoy Spirit Tracks and know that the Zelda title for Wii is going to come out when it's perfect," he further added.
Last week, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata revealed that the game will see a release this year.
