You know Nintendo is keeping a good secret if you know less of what it will be, and more of what it won't. I remember seeing an article on a fake Zelda game that actually sparked my interest. What if the main item of a Zelda game was, in fact, a shield? I'm not sure how 3D or any other innovative ideas could come from this, but expect much of Ocarina of Time 3D to be present in the new 3D Zelda title. OoT 3D is, by far, one of the best idea starters I can think of for a 3D Zelda game.
