In an interview with IGN, Nintendo President Reggie Fils-Aime was asked about the company's decision to not show Zelda Wii U at E3 2015.
Probally moved to NX console..
Yep, I expect a 'Twilight Princes', as in a cross-gen release, both on WiiU as well as a better version as a release-title for NX. And I'm perfectly fine with that. The game looked amazing, but Nintendo needs to come out with a console that will actually sell and be a big hit so it gets proper 3rd party support, and a guaranteed system-seller like a gorgeous cell-shaded Zelda releasing on it's launch-date would certainly help doing so...
xenoblade chronicles x was first shown in 2013, nintendo knew it was not going to come out that year. once again nintendo just doesn't care what people think
Twilight princess was better on gamecube imo.
Zelda Wii U was in development 2011 Twilight Princess was in development 2003. Same situation does not apply.
I don't understand your point. Twilight Princess was in development 3 years before its release... Zelda Wii U was in development 4 years before its supposed initial release, but it got delayed one further year. What's the big difference here?
anybody who doesnt think that the new zelda is also coming to the nx clearly doesn't know how badly nintendo needs this thing to succeed.
Seems like this is the most likely scenario, it is a great game to launch a new console with. If we do get the wii u replaced with the nx lets hope they get the console hardware right this time.
You do know Miyamoto confirmed that it's coming to WiiU right? Though it is possible they'll pull a Twilight Princess. Well Zelda is no longer a system seller for WiiU, by the time it comes out NX will be on its way and they'll be little reason to buy a WiiU. NX better be the most powerful console when it releases and have a traditional controller, just use the pro controller Nintendo, and add some analog triggers. Gamepad is fine in my opinion but would probably make it cost too much. Innovate with software not hardware. And yes, stop gearing everything towards little kids. Nintendo's games are fine, you don't need blood and gore to be a game for more mature people. But when Nintendo advertise them (which is quite rare) their ads are clearly aimed at 8 year olds, and is not doing them any favors.
because they only showed it last time to trick people into buying wiius. why could they not have shown some more of the game? at least it would keep peoples interest and give the message its still very much happening. the way they didnt show it at all is odd. nintendo are bizarre. the game has to be for nx. in fact i would say its a dead cert its for nx. they will wait until next e3 to push the title for the nx, giving people a major reason to buy the nx. lets be honest- the wiiu is dead and buried now
Lol a negative effect to show a game people want. Man you guys are so out of touch right now it's dishearting
glad i sold my wii u and got a ps4
Why wouldn't you just keep it and buy a PS4?
I'm glad I didn't buy a ps4 so I can get the nx. Ps4 now is a joke.
I have both because I'm not so fickle. Both offer great stuff.
This is one of the dumbest excuses I've ever heard. Only Nintendo.
I will tell you a little story obvious to the keen eye. Nintendo almost always had the most powerful console of its generation and was the oasis of some of the biggest games of all time in almost every genre and all ages. suddenly, after the Gamcube, which was the strongest console of its time technologically (before Xbox), things in Nintendo changed. in some dark room inside Nintendo headquarter the decision was made on that day onward the company will target kids as its main adopter. kids like colorful images, simple controls and interactivity, they don't care about visual fidelity and this is why they exited the technology race and focused on innovative controls and in house gaming instead. thus, the Wii was made and then the WiiU on the same footstep. that's simply it. Nintendo's main audience are kids and they know families will buy a Nintendo for their kids because, it's for kids. it's a conception that Nintendo saved no effort to advertise and successfully so. and now, Nintendo is running out of ideas faster than the next generation of diapers and it's falling behind the competition. what do do? I don't care. I was once a Nintendo fan but they decided I became too old for them so I decided i'm too good to have a Nintendo in my house again. yep, i'm angry, just a little bit.
Well said, hopefully NX brings some of that technological progress in today competition.
Xbox came out 3 days before GC in America. So GC was never the most powerful...
"Most powerful" or not, it's end product which counts, nothing else. The Gamecube gave us (for example) Prime, Resident Evil 4 and Wind Waker, some of the best looking and performing (in equal measure) games of that generation. Microsoft did too - with the Xbox, but games so radically different (visually) that to compare comes down to lab analysis.
Nintendo has always targeted kids. The Wii was meant to target everyone, the young and the old. What you just spouted was goofy nonsense.
Also, don't try telling me owners of either PS4 or XB1 aren't 'kids'. We are talking videogames here, not high culture - by any stretch of the imagination. The whole Nintendo e3 thing (for me) is becoming wildly disproportionate. Yes, Nintendo didn't 'own' e3, but on the other hand it gave us New information on Mario Maker, Wooly World and Star Fox - actual tangible information rather than just name dropping. I for one own a Wii U and can't for the life of me say I've been disappointed with its output. A neat console, good price, quality selection of games, a breath of fresh air.
I'm with you Higgins the trolls are using critical feedback as away to bring down the wiiu. The only people still not getting a wiiu are sheep. Well that is their problem. We are on a pro sony site sooooooo.
"in some dark room inside Nintendo headquarter the decision was made on that day onward the company will target kids as its main adopter. kids like colorful images, simple controls and interactivity," Super mario was such a gore fest. Goddamn I loved Nintendo when they were having musical themes about the devil in their games.
Now they even blew the kids demographic by being the only console that does not have Minecraft- By far more young kids today have more interest in Minecraft than Mario- Nearly every darn console, smartphone, e reader etc has Minecraft But Nintendo could not get a deal done w them- that says alot
Sega Master System more powerful than NES.
I'm glad they decided to spend the time working on the game, rather than wasting time creating a pointless E3 demo. Very smart move.
Because it's not ready.
I bought the Wii U knowing good and well they were in a PS2 vs. Gamecube type of situation with Sony again. And you know what? I didn't give a damn and don't regret it one bit. I had both a PS2 and a Gamecube and enjoyed the heck out of Gamecube and PS2. Who doesn't own multiple consoles these days and considers themselves hardcore? I don't miss out on classic games. I have enjoyed the heck out of Wii U. It is an awesome system. Everything (features like online/internet) works vey well on it. Runs quiet as a mouse and never had one problem. My favorite games of E3 are Super Mario Maker, Uncharted 4 and Horizon.....just so you fanboys know...lol. #RealGamer
I dont now why you boys are sou pised off? I m not Nintendo fen eaven Sony or Microsoft. I just like to play games!That`s all! I agree with that that Nintendo should try naki g games for all 4+ to 18+ cose in 25 years some of us like to see some bloody games also we like to play some simple games like Mario. At all we like to play some good games, not just everage one. Sou if Nintendo will do Zelda beter in this case i wait for it and my U will win this last year with all those who are Zelda fans. What about E3? Its just a crap. How many good titles was showen at E3 but un the ende players were disapointed? Dont give up Nintendo!!!
NX launch title.
Soooooo....where's Devil's Third? Fatal Frame? They are 2 of my most anticipated games, coming out THIS YEAR! So why the f*ck has their been no news whatsoever about them? 'We only show games at E3 which are soon to be released'...isn't this the third year in a row we're seeing XenoBlade? Didnt we also see Bayonetta 2 at two E3's before it released? Now its Mario Makers second E3 and yet all we've had from Devil's Third since it was announced are a few interviews and trailers, some of which are only in Japanese. Fatal Frame has already released in Japan hasn't it? So WTF?
With this massive network of information that we all have access to, I find it interesting how things go "unnoticed". http://www.gamespot.com/art...
As someone who has defended Nintendo in so many articles, I have to agree. The line up is still great. We do get Xenoblade Chronicles X, Fatal Frame, Devils Third, Star Fox, Super Mario Maker, Yoshis Wooly World, and Fast Racing Neo. Those are all going to be great games to play! Nintendo couldnt have gone about talking about these any worse. They know what a lot of people are saying about the Wii U. They know what people have been telling them they want to play. At this point, regardless of how awesome the games I listed are going to be, the PR of Nintendo is terrible and I, a BIG Nintendo fan as some of you know, was very disappointed. This was their chance to make the Wii U stick out and it didnt happen. I am going to be buying a lot of the games they listed, but with XB1 back Compatability, Squares games, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Halo 5 with its Warzone, Horizon, Star Wars, and Revolt, Im not sure I will be dedicated to buying them all as I might have been. This year rocked my Nintendo boat a little too much. I still love their games and love my Wii U! But instead of making everyone eat crow they left us Wii U supporters being laughed at even more. That is something that I am getting really tired of and had hoped they would step up to the plate and go to bat for their supporters. Instead they struck out. The only game they showed in their Direct that was remotely anything I wamted was Star Fox. We knew that $h1t was coming out already! I have purchased every Nintendo console since 64 on day one. The NX wont be one that I do. Not until I know exactly what games are coming to it and what its lifespan looks like. I have plenty to keep me busy on my Wii U after this years releases and the games I will buy on my other consoles. I greatly appologize to anyone that I argued with or fought with when it came to Nintendo loyalty in the past on this website. I am very sorry.
I completely agree with everything you said and feel the same way. Nintendo messed up big time, this was their chance to shine, how can anyone take them seriously after that showing. Whats even worse is that it seems like they don't even care.
Yes! They are literally treating us like we are the @$$holes because we didnt appreciate their showing. I dont get that at all. I am willing to bet that 75 percent of the people playing on PS4 and XBOX would gladly welcome and buy a Nintendo console that was properly supported, had on par with its generation graphics, less unique controls, and was advertised properly. I have supported them for a long time and I really do love my Wii U, but dammit man they have got to stop with this terrible decision making. They know they dont have support from third parties. They have the largest development team in the industry. Make the freaking games or buy the freaking games for your console that we are telling you we want to play. I feel like that kid that is last to be picked up after school right now. I told all my friends that my dad would be on time. And he never showed up.
I feel you. I am a big Nintendo fan too and they are pushing me away with their arrogance and bs as well. All they seem to care about is how well their damn amiibo are selling. I like nintendo for their games but all they seem to care about is how much money theyre making off their gimmicks.
The reasoning is pure bs. I feel like theyve shown the same games for 3 friggin e3's! I have supported Nintendo for so long and I am feeling disheartened by their sheer arrogance at this point. Sony showed games that arent due out until holiday 2017 for frig sake! And it has won them even more fans because it gives the fans a glimpse into the future! If you got footage you need to show that crap on the big stage! Its like getting to the Stanley Cup finals and holding back because you dont want to show how good you really are! Wtf Nintendo!
Because its not finished and after the initial reveal they cobbled together last minute they probably went back to the drawing board. Watch the NX be a replacement for the 3DS which is 4 years old at this point. 2017 would make it 6 and a more likely candidate for being replaced.
