Nintendo fans hoping to pen in the release of a new The Legend of Zelda game for Wii next year are probably best to leave it in pencil for the time being, with the platform holder unwilling to confirm the game for release in 2010.

Quizzed about the game during a recent interview on GameTrailers TV, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime said: "We haven't committed to Zelda in 2010."

Obviously that's not to say the game won't be out in 2010, just that Nintendo isn't ready to confirm anything. Given that Twilight Princess took so long to be completed it slipped from GameCube to Wii - eventually releasing on both platforms - fans can justifiably be a little concerned.
