Aonuma gets fired - Deletion of Zelda Wii

Recent Article from Zelda Universe.

In a breaking news story from Japanese newspaper Gansaku Shimbun today, it seems that Zelda Wii may have to start all over again, and without one of its most dedicated staff. Eiji Aonuma, director of the Zelda series, was fired today, after several consecutive weeks of his showing up to work drunk and harassing employees, most likely due to heavy stress over the rushed release of Spirit Tracks.

Drunk and infuriated, Aonuma decided to get his revenge in the worst way imaginable – by deleting Zelda Wii. All documents, all backups (both digital and physical) were destroyed one way another other before department security finally realized what was going on and called the police.

In a recent interview with Aonuma, he said:

“Now that I look back on what I did, I’m ashamed and I regret it deeply. I guess I didn’t like the thought of Nintendo firing me just before the release of the Zelda game that I have worked so hard on. I would ask for forgiveness and make peace with Nintendo, but I realize that they can not take me back.”

We can only hope that there are still some hidden backups of Zelda Wii that Aonuma didn’t get to, or that some of them can be restored. Regardless, this is a grim day for Nintendo and Zelda. Who will replace Aonuma and what will happen to Zelda Wii and the future of the gaming series? These are questions that will probably go unanswered for quite some time.

April fools only lasts until 12 Pm. But if it is true, I could care less personally. It's not right for someone to do that and I'm sure if it is true, it's upsetting to a great deal of people, I have no doubt. Personally though, I am not into long-term commitment games. Yes I've enjoyed zelda in the past quite a bit, but I stopped playing it after a couple of days. No game seems to hold my attention for more than a few days straight, I'd rather play "pick-it-up-and-play games" and several of those a day. There is the odd few I still care about in production, actually one and only one that I care enough to pay attention to. Timesplitters 4, it will never happen for a while and when it does, it's not even by the right company. Too bad this "Crytek" could care less and started developing an entirely new FPS instead of working on TS4.


Edit: looks like this is april fools from comments, but then these fans might just be hoping too.

This is like IGN's "LoZ Movie" Trailer for April Fools, a few years back.
