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

I kinda get where your coming from, not sure Nintendo has the guts though. A zelda released on the Wii U may be perceived as a waste of resources or wasted opportunity. By time of its release (late 2015?) the Wii U's fate would have already been decided. If we're all thinking that Nintendo are about to start readying for another console in 2016/17, why waste one of your most precious resources on a dead console?

I believe they did a similar thing with twilight princess. I assume it was delayed from its original 2005 release date, not because it wasnt finished but because Nintendo knew it would be a better used as a wii launch title as opposed to a swan song for the gamecube. (In which case the wii wouldn't have received an actual zelda game till 2009).

A Majora's Mask remake on the Wii U would be a decent way to make up it if they did make such a decision.

Exactly.

It's cheaper for them to develop another remake and still the console will have three Zelda games, just like the Wii.

Ryuzaki agrees with you. You must be proud. 

I must be doing something wrong.

Not happening, sorry. That would hurt fan confidence. And all Nintendo consoles did receive a zelda game. TP was launched on Gamecube before wii. I could see them releasing it on wiiU and then maybe re-releasing it on their successor.


TP was actually released for Wii first, even though it was originally a GC game.



Yep.

Expects E3 reveal

2015 Launch

I can wait.



Twilight Princess HD? lol



This prediction is never going to come true.



Funny, I was thinking about the same thing few days ago...though I think they're more likely to pull TP like scenario, release the game on WiiU and than enhanced version on successor.
