i expect zelda wiiu been delayed and moved to next console

NiteX1029d ago (Edited 1029d ago )

It's just delayed until next year, not 2018.

mikeslemonade1029d ago

New console is coming out in 2016. Usually when they codename the console it comes out the year after.

Also this confirms bloodborne will be game of the year. Yes!

Spikeantestor1029d ago

I seriously doubt it's coming out in 2016. They said at the announcement that there would be more info next year. I'd be really suprised if the first real info we got and the release were in the same year.

It not delayed. Eiji didn't even say 2016. He just said it not gonna be at E3 because they are focusing on implementing the ideas.

bleedsoe9mm1029d ago

if they want the nx to sell having zelda for launch and then a full mario game in year 2 would be the perfect way to start it off .

Dunban671027d ago

they did say 2016 or beyond=

Plus, who actually takes what Nintendo execs say at face value- who s to say for sure why they delayed Zelda but the one thing that is sure... it was not due to the reasons they have given us=

Nintendo knows most of their core fans will believe most anything they tell them so that's what they do

It's almost like Nintendo said to themselves, "Wii U sales have never lived up to expectations. Let's no longer fight for it. Let's just kill sales completely."

Why, why on Earth, if you're not going to release a new console until the end of 2016 at the earliest, would you, at the beginning of 2015, announce A.) you're going to release that new console at the end of 2016, and B.) you're going to delay the 1 game that EVERYone is waiting to play on Wii U to 2016?

Both of the announcements should have come much, much later. The NX announcement not until spring of 2016 at the earliest and the Zelda announcement not until Gamescom or the Tokyo Game Show later this year.

Wii U sales might dip down to the single digits at some point this year.

Theyellowflash301029d ago (Edited 1029d ago )

Nintendo already said why they announced the NX because they didn't want people to think they lost passion for making dedicated gaming devices with all the smartphone announcements.

Nintendo never said they would release a console in 2016, they said we might hear some new info on the NX in 2016.

As far as Wii U sales "dipping" into the "single digits" I don't even know what that means, I THINK you are making a joke.

Im not happy with the delay,but has a multi console owner with so many great games releasing and my backlog i will not miss Zelda WiiU much.And if the delay its to get the game at that high level of polish and enjoyment that Nintendo games use to have,that quality seal than be it!

iliimaster1029d ago

the fact that no e3 and that it was suppose to release this year means they will hold off till next console ? and for splatoon with no voice chat ..... ive given up on nintendo and online... best to expect nothing because you wont be dissapointed as far as online goes but hell look at xboxone and them taking away voice messages, then on 360 taking away avatar netflix viewing with buddies/ladies who you would be trying to get boob shots from lol those were the days

OtakuDJK1NG-Rory1029d ago

No. It still releasing this year. Nintendo didn't confirm any delay.

NX is coming til late 2017 or 2018.
