RashBandicoot: "Open world The Legends of Zelda game on the Wii U is getting some info this November."
Ugh finally some information. I need this game already.
I wouldn't mind if they just moved it to NX. It would give it a chance to be better than we've ever imagined because we'd be coming from Skyward Sword and not the Wii U version. New specs = better looking game that can allow you to do more. Also with the extra time there is more time to refine and add the story.
I would prefer that they keep Zelda U on Wii U, and make a whole new Zelda for NX that is built from the ground up. That way we get a Zelda that takes full advantage of the NX, instead of a port that started elsewhere. [I got enough of that BS out of third parties on Wii U as it is; I'd prefer that Nintendo didn't copy their mistake.] Plus, each system has had its own Zelda game, so there's no reason why the Wii U shouldn't, as well. Even thought TP was cross-platform, its follow-up game on the Wii, Skyward Sword, went right back to the traditional method of being only on one platform. TP was an exception, not the rule, so I highly doubt they'll revisit the TP situation by making Zelda U a cross-platform release. Both Wii U and NX deserve their own Zelda games built from the ground up.
I semi disagree I dont mind if the do a cross platform release but if they cnub all the wii u owners who have been waiting for this ever since auonoma started talking about this in 2011 ish then that wouldn't be cool
they should cancel it for the wiiu and make it an NX launch title. releasing it on wiiu is commercial suicide
What? Hyrule Warriors — which is simply a SPIN-OFF — sold 1+ million units. Wind Waker HD — a REMAKE — sold 1+ million units. If these two 'special' titles can sell over a million a units, then what on earth could be stopping the brand-new Zelda; the first home-console release since Skyward Sword in 2011, from doing the same, if not more? If you're going to troll, at least try and make *some* sense.
Even though there's only about 10 million Wii U's out there, the adoption rate for games like Zelda, Mario Kart etc etc is so ridiculously high that Nintendo will still be rolling in money with Zelda on Wii U.
Info is to tell us there is more info coming next year
NX port confirmed!
I hope so man Nintendo needs to make it happen ;)
Watch the info be a cancellation and announcement of nx lol
why should the cancel it when the wii U sold 10 mil, and who say the NX will sell any better?
Delayed to 2017
NX launch title confirmed lol
It would make sense, Zelda is a system seller so it always boggles my mind that Nintendo lately seems to release Zelda games close to the end of a consoles life cycle. The WiiU should have launched with key franchises on day 1 or at least within the first 2 months, games like Starfox (a good one), Zelda, a new Mario Galaxy, METROID should have their development scheduled to help launch a new console.
They clearly have no idea how to do business in this decade. Crap online play, no unified account, launching a system with a confusing name, lack of follow up software, the list goes on.
They had a Zelda game before the launch of the WiiU. According to Ninty diehards it was all just a tech demo, auctioning off the WiiU with things it was never going to achieve.
Hopefully NOT. I'd prefer to see a Zelda built from the ground up for both NX and Wii U. That way we KNOW that we'll be getting the best that each system can offer in their first attempt at an original Zelda title, rather than a carried-over port. As I said above, TP was the exception, not the rule; Skyward Sword was Wii exclusive, after all. No reason to think they'll stray away from the exclusive route that pretty much all Zeldas have followed outside of TP.
And the news is, this will be released for both the NX and the Wii U. The Wii U is to Nintendo what the PS Vita is to Sony.
Except Nintendo is still releasing content.
And yet in most places the Vita is moving more than the WiiU. Even in Japan.
@Undertaker Wrong. Japan is the only place the Vita routinely outsells the Wii U, it just does good enough over there to make up for how bad it does elsewhere. Japan is pretty much keeping the Vita alive. But at least the Vita has something, wii u has no where.
@undertaker And how does the vita shape up against the 3DS? Or are you only wanting to talk about Ninty failings?
Anything other than release date is unimportant to me. Open world - check Horse - check Ok... maybe if they showed some dungeon gameplay I'd be excited. Give me 9 + 1 final dungeon and I am happy.
I hope they cancel it or push it to an NX exclusive so i can finally dump my wii u. Only reason i'm holding onto that turd.
That's a real shame. I bet you hate fun because it is hard not to find at least one good game for the wifi U let along the twenty or so it has had.
so what you're saying is you feel like you wasted your money, so therefore you want Nintendo to release this game only on NX, so you have to waste more money to buy a new system and this Zelda??? Yes thats so damn logical. Brilliant!!! /S
Love it news of upcoming news
I thinkg they will do the same they did with Twilight Princess... make a simple port and watch it sell like hotcakes
NX dev kits only just went to devs Dev kits always arrive 2 years before a console launches. no way NX is before Christmas 2017. This is still a wii u game. If you think Nintendo would risk losing 4 million sales on the wii u for a million at launch on NX you are all crazy.
This simply isn't true, if the architecture of the NX isn't anything foreign as far as hardware goes. 3rd party developers simply don't need a year or two to do ports of whatever games they have in development and if the porting is simple enough it could easily be done in a short amount of time for launch...
lol did you say devkits arrive 2 years before release. Noooo, don't get me wrong games are usually in development that long before release but dev kits do not tend to come that early. 6 months to a year is much more accurate. also nintendo would've had said said devkits well before shipping out or atleast prototypes
Goodness. The amount of "whoa" I'm seeing in this comment thread is high; and this is N4G. Let me present a question to you fine people. When, in any case in history, has an original Zelda game NOT been released on a Nintendo system, minus the Virtual Boy? WHAT proof — and I mean even just a *little* — is there to justify the incredibly "interesting" notion that this game is being moved to NX? I mean, what Zelda game hasn't been delayed before? Nintendo games in general are prone to delays. Are you people actually sane, or is this just an Internet persona?
I would also like to add to my earlier comment. If you think NX will be backward compatible you are all crazy. Sony just proved that removing backward compatability from a a system prolonged the life of the ps3 and increased the sales of the ps4. All including backward compatibility does is kill the previous generation console. No way will Nintendo make that mistake again. The wii u will never have a price drop below $200 and the games will never be playable on another system, unless nintendo follows sony down the HD remstered road. So buy a wii u because the NX is 2 years away.
Naw we shouldn't be trying to sell a wiiu like that. Ethier do it with games a price drop or make it the extreme low end of the nx platform so you can go high end with your next hardware. Then people have a choice. Just get enough to play nintendo games and exclusives or go high-quality or even just handheld. Wiiu seems to still be getting a zelda. Bc might be how the nx gets to play this. HD free dlc for it could sell the system along. This could spur the development of the next one also. If people want to be stubborn let them but don't sell your wiiu that thing is going to rise in value due to the level that some of these games are at plus it sounds like you may be able to use your gamepad as a second controller. People are still working on 2 game pad games also. It seems there are more things coming that could make the wiiu the system we all wanted and the nx might be your core. This maybe the first time I get a nintendo system for Nintendo games and then get a higher end one for 3rd party games. The trend of needing two systems is expensive and will only work against console gaming as alternatives appear. I also feel the chant of port it to the nx is coming from people that just can't afford a wiiu right now. If it did hit the right price then they would get one.
I just dont see nintendo using power pc for the next console. So making the NX backward compatible seems totally unrealistic. If Nintendo really wants third parties it has to go with the standard used on PC, just like microsoft and sony did.
The chips are not set but the kits are coming together. It's not insane that the portable could actually be a wiiu with a die shrink? Also the wiiu actually has a wii chip riding along and the wii chip had a ngc chip in it. You see where I'm going right. The truth is they can actually just put a apu with a wiiu chip as the odd core out. I wonder what a wiiu cpu could do with hbm2 attached directly to it? They have a ton of options and amd is already familiar with the chip. It's the gpu that will be the ultimate scaler. Also no pc can run a Vulcan designed gpu right now due to drivers. Also usb type c is real which means the handheld could be used as a second gpu. Asymmetrical gpus are tricky but not for fixed hardware. I'm sure nintendo is watching the response of fans to a more powerful console. The new president understands the fast and furious mentally.
the info is that the game won't be coming to Wii U at all
I feel it only make sense for Nintendo to make this game for the NX if the NX does come out in 2016, to release this game a year after Wii U version will not help the NX no Zelda fan will wait a extra year just to play it on another console
They have already confirmed it's coming to the Wii U...jeez. Whether or not it comes to the NX is the only question. It seems many Wii U critics are secret NX lovers or something..lol
NEW INFO! IT'S CANCELLED FOR THE U! NX EXCLUSIVE!
