ZU: The video game world is a living, breathing beast; year to year, graphics and technology improve, allowing for drastic shifts in style. Nintendo began a new trend just a few years ago and geared itself more so toward family games, leading shelves to explode with a mass of multiplayer sports and dance discs. This opened up a whole new brand of consumers, yet the change to make a greater fraction of releases family-oriented irked many old Nintendo fans; many of these long time gamers felt that first party games were negatively affected. However, could this trend again change with the Wii U? With staggering sales and the console still in its infantile stages, the latest platform might give the Zelda series a chance to head in a new direction.
