Well, that was something wasn’t it. We all just watched Nintendo essentially take the year off. More importantly, we all witnessed the big N unceremoniously throw the Wii U under the bus.
Zedla haha nevermind they fixed it
Ha ha - I thought I got away with that!
They have confirmed it still is: http://uk.ign.com/articles/... Honestly, with the announcement of talk about the NX next year are people really surprised by Nintendo's E3 showing? Since announcing the NX they are clearly preparing for that as they need to. They need to have a big launch with the NX. What E3 did show us is that the NX will be the replacement for the Wii U. If it wasn't they would have had a stronger showing.
I feel like Nintendo are very sensitive to issues that Wii-U had and have learned from them the hard way... Many people would say lack of a system seller around its launch , lack luster hardware, and disappointing online infrastructure were the problems of Wii-U So that being said...I feel like they are developing a lot of titles and moving projects like Zelda over to NX just because they don't want to repeat the same mistakes they made before. I'm thinking they want a system seller at launch for the NX and what better game than Zelda? They also have it running supposedly on android which is a sign they have developers in mind and want lots of content on their platform. Nintendo Network was also announced and it will probably co launch with NX.
Again, they have the chance to slip ahead of the competition. And this time, it will be for any years. Will they do it? Or is this gonna be a WiiU/DS hybrid of sorts. Whatever it is, next yr is HUGE for consoles, and coming of a HUGE fall 2015, Nintendo do better have some software to come with this new hardware, especially 3rd party games, b/c right now, I can't imagine what they could do to make ppl shell out $400 after we experience the games releasing in the next 18 months.
If Nintendo is smart they will put Zelda on their next-gen system as a launch title like they did with the Wii. They can still have it on the Wii U as well like they did with Twlight Princess on Gamecube
Really doesn't make much sense to release Zelda on the WiiU at this point. I really want the next Zelda as soon as possible, but if it helps Nintendo next console, I'd rather wait for it and let Nintendo make it a launch title.
Other than just out of respect for their fanbase there really is no reason to launch it on Wii-u now...
That's probably the smarter decision, but then us 10million WiiU owners are gonna feel cheated, and many of us won't buy the NX due to Nintendo giving us the middle finger. I still probably would buy it simply because I can't miss a Zelda game, but I bought a WiiU specifically for Zelda, so even if they do a joint release on both NX and WiiU I would be a annoyed, cause the one game I wanted is on the next generation console and I could've saved $300 by waiting. I think people are overreacting a little, WiiU will still get some games for the next year or two, NX will probably launch in 2017.
Zelda is coming on Wii U in 2016 and NX won't launch till 2017. What Nintendo may have is a resolution upgraded version at launch for NX or a remake of Twilight Princess (looking even better than the initial Zelda demo they showed for Wii U back in 2011)....
Bloody knew it. The Wii U will probably get a downgraded version thought in the future.
This article doesn't actually confirm anything. It's all just conjecture with a headline that makes it seem legit. It's still hard to say either way, imo. To go an entire generation without a dedicated zelda title for Wii U wouldn't go well with anyone. Gamecube had Windwaker as well as TP.
It has been confirmed for Wii U, Nintendo would NEVER do that to its fans. It's coming in 2016. If NX doesn't come in 2016 well your salty asses better learn how to wait..lol...Wii U owners will play it first. lol
After looking at the Zelda 2014 E3 trailer, I think this game can't be done on Wii U. It looks like a next gen game.
Clearly it can considering it was supposedly running on the Wii U.
Keyword .. supposedly. No one got hands on with it ... no one saw it live.
Lol, they show him playing it on a wii u at TGA last year.
" Obviously this story isn’t based on factual knowledge and I certainly don’t have the inside scoop on Nintendo’s plans for the future" Then fuck off with your clickbait horseshit.
If they not suport wii u with Zelda its like that doesnt care about all Nintendo fans who spend money on this product and all games. I think when Zelda will arive on wii U, many players will shot up. Specialy those who are Sony&Xbox fans.
So is n4g now "oh I have an opinion that I think is fact let me post an article about it without actually doing any research"? Nintendo confirmed that it's still coming to WiiU. Edit: Who the hell approves these articles anyway?
The same people who run vgchartz.....
This is not right. Reggie says something like 'we like to show titles releasing Holiday of the same year. Really? Is that why last year we saw. X, Zelda, Mario Maker, Woolie World, ETC. Also if the games they want to show are coming out this year, why no Devils third, or Fatal Frame.
Don't you wish an interviewer would have asked those questions to Reggie right there on the spot.
The article is an opinion piece. It clearly states that it's opinion....oh, and just because Nintendo say Zelda is still coming to Wii U doesn't make it so. What do you think they would say? Cross generational title at best, and as the article states, that would be useless to the Wii U as a platform.
As sensitive as N4G mods are—they actually thet THIS get approved? In other news...Has EVERYONE forgotten that Anouma announced from the BEGINNING OF THE YEAR that Zelda won't be at E3? http://www.gamespot.com/art... Seriously people; grow a brain.
Mods don't approve, users do.
I know they don't. I just find it funny how certain things get flagged when trash like this sails through effortlessly. It's hate-filled clickbait.
Look, I love Nintendo and personally think the wii u is a pretty great system all things considered. It has some great games for sure. But the majority of the game buying public does not agree. Theres just not enough variety of games people want to play and the competitors have more powerful and promising systems. Its high time Nintendo moves on and becomes competitive again. The wii u was successful in one way. It made Nintendo realize what they need to do for ther next system. They got their feet wet with HD gaming and now they need to take what theyve learned and smash it out of the park next time. A system with the same or better power of the competitors that is supported by 3rd parties would put them over the top. If they can't compete next time around, its time to publish on other platforms. Im a long time gamer and Nintendo always keeps me a 2 or 3 system per gen gamer. As much as i love my xbox and ps, I still need that Nintendo fix. A system that lets us play all the 3rd party games and the 1st party N stuff is going to sell.
I love how people still think they know what's best for Nintendo. I'm really happy with the system, WiiU easily the best console ever. It's a shame really, because gamers need to be reminded that video games were always about being fun, not pretty. And the majority of gamers prioritize image over content, which is why the majority of video games (90%) aren't worth the plastic they're printed on. It's become more mind control than anything else.
