Wii U Legend of Zelda Game Also Coming to Nintendo NX April 27, 2016Posted by Maniac in Game News.
The next major Legend of Zelda game has been an elusive title. It was first previewed on the Wii U several years ago but has been delayed on several different occasions. Today, it is my unfortunate duty to inform you all that the game has been delayed again, but that there is one more important piece of information to go with this delay announcement.
Earlier today, Nintendo confirmed that their next console, currently called the Nintendo NX, would be released in March 2017. Now we know that the the same Legend of Zelda game that is coming to the Wii U will also be released for the Nintendo NX.
To me, this seems like an unfortunate side effect of continuous delays. This is also not the first time something like this has happened to a Legend of Zelda game. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess was originally intended for release on the GameCube, but its continual delays forced the game to get a simutanous release on the GameCube and the (then) newly released Wii. This didn’t hurt fans that much, as it was a great game. While I’m convinced that Nintendo will release a great Zelda game eventually, it is upsetting to hear about constant delays on such an anticipated product.
More information will be coming when the game is previewed later this year at the Electronic Entertainment Expo.
The next Legend of Zelda game is coming in 2017 to the Wii U and Nintendo NX.
