"Zelda Wii U Switching to NX?"

TheArabGamer assets: "Nintendo's latest Earning's Release has revealed that the next big open world Zelda game may not be coming out next year. It's weird considering games such Bravely Second and Mario & Sonic clearly mention 2016. Yet Zelda remains MIA. This could be because developers still can't commit to next year or that's moving to an entirely different system: the NX."

Wouldn't be the first time. Probably turn into twilight princess type game were its on both.

Gamecube and Wii had similar graphical performance.
Not sure they wanna make the same mistake again of not being futureproof.
Zelda Wii U is designed for Gamepad use, i doubt it won't come to Wii U.

Future proof? Not sure either PS4 or Xbox One is that. Only the PC can surely be termed 'future proof', if at all anything can. Also, I'll put SM3DW, Splatoon or Smash against on game on 'rival' consoles, each holding its own graphically (easy)...gameplay/performance is no slouch either.

Yet upcoming PS4 title Until Dawn was supposed to be a PS3 Move title and they replaced the Move stuff with a regular controller and upgraded the graphics to the PS4 standards, and no PS3 release.

I doubt Zelda will come to Wii U.

Yeah, I'm thinking the same. The sad thing, though, is that if this were to happen, this would mark the first time in Nintendo history that a Nintendo home console doesn't get an exclusive Zelda title for it. And that sucks.

iplay1up21202d ago

I am doubting this. Unless NX really comes out in 2016. Which is not going to happen. For NX to release next year, developers including 3rd parties would have development kits by now.

MikleDemi1201d ago

It will happen. Developers already have NX dev kits.
They were also showing the hardware to developers at this years E3.
Square Enix announces Dragon Quest X & XI for NX, not Wii U.

ChickeyCantor1201d ago

Can you confirm that email?

wonderfulmonkeyman1201d ago

NX isn't due tlll 2017 due to the 5 year cycle.
DQX Being planned for it isn't a sign that they're releasing the NX before its time is due.

MikleDemi1201d ago

It's been making the interweb rounds for a while and got a "no comment" from Gearbox's main tool.
As good as confirmed. Plus it sounds true.
Combined with all the other stuff, seems legit.

PlatinumGX1201d ago

Dragon Quest X is already on Wii U though.

pivotplease1201d ago

5 year cycles are pretty underwhelming. Just drop the amiibos and keep releasing games like this that everyone wants to play. The NX feels kind of redundant if it's not even going to be as powerful as the current gen systems. The Wii U pulls off great graphics already since Nintendo uses a cartoony approach to graphics.

MSBAUSTX1201d ago


Only in Japan though.

Sly-Lupin1200d ago

DQXI being announced for NX was a mistranslation. Square-Enix is exploring launching it for the NX, but they can't say one way or another because they have no idea what the NX is.

NX will be out in 2017 at the earliest.

And if Nintendo's smart (they're not, but if they were) they wouldn't bother with the NX until the competition was ready to move on, too. Because the casual gamers who bought PS4s aren't going to want to buy a Nintendo platform that's going to be made obsolete by the next Sony/Microsoft flagship in 2-3 years.

The reason no one launches consoles between generations is because it's suicide. See the Dreamcast.

are you a developer? if not then how do you know if they haven't received them?

i always said it was getting delayed for the nx and i still stand by that. the nx will be here by the end of 2016

deadfrag1201d ago

The game will be on the Wii U next year,thats my betting!

addictedtochaos1201d ago

How many times must we go over this? Nintendo has stated that Zelda is coming to Wii U.

eworthington01201d ago

Why disagrees? They did say that.
They said no worries. Coming to wii u.

deafdani1200d ago

Yup, it's true, and I don't see them dropping the Wii U version at all.

However, it can still ALSO come for the NX.

Sly-Lupin1200d ago

And Nintendo has never changed their mind before. Ever.

Knushwood Butt1201d ago

The question is, what are they going to launch the nx with?
