Check out what Nintendo's Eiji Aonuma, best known for directing and producing multiple Zelda games, just sent 3DS owners via Swapnote, the system's text and picture messaging application.
"Hello, this is Aonuma, Nintendo's Legend of Zelda producer," he says in the note. "Did you enjoy The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D? Thanks to everyone, the Legend of Zelda series had a very happy 25th anniversary. I hope you're looking forward to new Legend of Zelda games."
Nintendo has not yet officially announced any new Legend of Zelda games for 3DS, but it's reasonable to assume that at least one is planned for the near future. Zelda is one of the publisher's strongest franchises, one that has made multiple appearances on every Nintendo system thus far.
Aonuma has also expressed interest in bringing The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask to 3DS.
To access Aonuma's note for yourself, just open up your 3DS and download the Swapnote app, if you don't have it already. Activate SpotPass and you should receive the letter, which is decorated with adorable little images of The Legend of Zelda's 8-bit sprites.
We've reached out to Nintendo for comment and will update if we hear anything official. For now, we'll just have to settle with a tease.
(Thanks, Kevin!)

"I hope you're looking forward to new Legend of Zelda games." Making a new Zelda game? You don't say? It's more of a question when they're actually gonna release it.. :3

That was the surprise for the Zelda fans mentioned at Nintendo Direct. So yeah New Zelda 3DS revealing at this years E3 anyone?
I just watched that, and I didn't notice anything about Zelda. What time on the video?

I can't recall now, it was both in the EU and Japanese Nintendo Direct.

I've played through OOT multiple times - on the N64, on an emulator, on the Wii, and on 3DS. But I've never played Majora's Mask. The OOT remake on 3DS was so excellent (my opinion) that I'm intentionally not playing Majora's Mask right now in hopes it will get the same 3DS treatment.

That said, there had better be some brand new Zelda games for this system. 3DS is gradually becoming my favorite Nintendo system of all time, and I've been around for all of them.

The day they make majora for 3ds is the day I will go out and buy it :)

The next Zelda better be cell-shaded like Wind Waker. The 3DS is more than powerful enough to do a Zelda game that looks as great as Wind Waker with some other effects.

Oh and I sure hope they go with the controls in OOT3D rather than the touchscreen stuff from Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks.
