Prediction: There won't be a proper Zelda game for Wii U

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Prediction: There won't be a proper Zelda game for Wii U

My guess is the Wii U will get a Zelda game in 2015 ... *however* it won't be a mega-budget Zelda with visuals like those of the E3 trailer of a few years ago.

But it will still be a very good game, perhaps a multiplayer Zelda that takes a lot of cues from A Link Between Worlds with very nice graphics (Aonuma's recent comments seem to hint at this), just not mega-budget visuals. And it will be a "proper" Zelda, with the proper amount of content and story and all that.

I actually agree. A proper Zelda game with high-end graphics would cost too much for Nintendo's sales expectations. It just wouldn't fit with their business strategy.

So alienating your fanbase would be a wiser business strategy ?

Iwata's latest presentation didn't give much thought to the fanbase.

He was addressing shareholders not his customers, that's why Nintendo Directs exist.



They have it on their IR supplementary report page and Aonuma has stated that it is and has been in developement for a while so I doubt they would scrap it or move it to the next console.



Zelda U Is coming for sure and It Is going to blow all the haters minds



Even the GameCube got 2 Zeldas, yes it will come to Wii U.

No need to worry, Bayonetta 2 is still coming.



Nintendo and PC gamer

To be honest the Wind Waker engine looks really nice on the Wii U ... if they took that engine and made a Zelda game that was less "kiddie" and had an adult Link instead ... I think it would be a pretty cost effective way to make a new Zelda game.

Yes, you read well. There won't be a proper Zelda game for Wii U as it is moved below the table quietly to the Wii U succesor.

That means:

WWHD - 2013

Hyrule Warriors - 2014

TPHD - 2015

Zelda HD for Wii U succesor at launch (like the Wii) - 2016

 

Thoughts?


Aside from Hyrule warriors, I'll take the rest!
