The Legend of Zelda on Wii U May Benefit From a Delay, But It Leaves a Blockbuster-Sized Gap

There'll be a number of Nintendo fans that, if they feel so inclined, can now say "I told you so". After insisting in December 2014 that The Legend of Zelda for Wii U was on track for a 2015 release, despite bold promises of a sizeable integrated game world and innovative ideas, Eiji Aonuma released a video update stating that a 2015 release is no longer the top priority. While the series producer stopped short of outright saying it'll be out in 2016, that's certainly the take-home message - the fact the game won't even be shown at E3 this year is further evidence of that.

holiday schedule is going to look pretty thin for Nitendo this Xmas. Which is a little sad and concerning. What big title are they going to throw at us for the Holidays? Hopefully they have some surprises up their sleeves.

Yeah, a gap easily filled by hundreds upon hundreds of hours of playing online with friends in Xenoblade X, Splatoon, and Devil's Third.(yes, Xenoblade Chronicles X was confirmed to have 4 player parties online in addition to passive online play with somewhere between 32 and 64 players.)

I love Zelda and I do wish it were coming this year, but if the delay makes it even better than the previews we've seen, then the wait is worth it, and the games coming in the meantime have enough content and replayability to easily last through this year and well into the next.
And thats not including any surprise games they have waiting for the holidays of 2015 that they might announce at E3.

Lacking third party multiplats doesn't mean having nothing to play, when the replay value of its few big titles is so long.

I'm definitely not gonna be bored this holiday.XD

Star Fox too.,plus I am sure E3 will give us more for this year as well.
