I understand that there has been a buzz for a Wii U Zelda game, especially since E3. But what interests me just as much is this proposal for a new Zelda game, put together a year ago by the webcomic artist Aaron Diaz of Dresden Codak. As a proof of concept, this game design looks pretty good, in my opinion. Diaz' art style lends itself to the Legend of Zelda, and his idea of swapping Link and Zelda's roles is a good one.
As a matter of fact, it looks like the Zelda-is-the-hero idea may come into effect in the upcoming Wii-U Zelda game. At least, that's part of the buzz, and I welcome it. There have been a bunch of Zelda games, and the series is long overdue to be reworked. The gameplay trailer looks fantastic, so I am pretty excited to see more.
