Thanks for that wonderful contribution Viktor. You're such an asset to this site. Even though they haven't made you a mod yet (shame on them!) it's great to see you're already imposing bans on people trying to generate a relevant and reasonable discussion. Keep up the great work mate!

OT:  I don't think Nintendo will be green lighting any more big titles for Wii U but I don't think they'll be cancelling titles that are far into development as we suspect Zelda is. I reckon it will be the console's swansong in 2015.

Nah, the true Zelda Wii U will be coming Holidays 2014 or summer 2015



Gaming on:

PC:
Asus Z87-A  |  i7 4770K  |  MSI Radeon RX 480 Gaming X 8GB
G. Skill Ripjaws X Series 32 GB DDR3 2133 mhz  |  WD Blue 1TB SSD & WD Blue HDD 1TB

Consoles:
WiiU
Switch (Docked)
PS 3 / 4

Handhelds:
New 3ds XL
Switch (Portable Mode ;P )

But Iwata and Aonuma said in a Direct (the direct where WW HD was announced) that there's a new Zelda game in development for the WiiU and they'll re-think the conventions of Zelda, I don't think it's so early in development that they'll change platform.



Ignoring the fact that it's been announced already, every Nintendo console had a Zelda game of it's own. The series even got it's own Game & Watch and Game Watch game. The WiiU will be no exception. The Virtual Boy is the only exception, it didn't have a Zelda, but they discontinued that after like half-a-year.

Zelda WiiU will arrive no later than holiday 2015. If there's ever going to be a 'TPHD' (yes please ), that game will be on the next console.



Zelda has a lot of catching up to do from current rpgs/action games to be great pretty graphics just won't do.

Yep. Dragon Age could be good source of inspiration. Put in some voice acting, sex scenes and change the combat for starters. 



Worst case we get a Twilight Princess scenario. Swan song Wii U title and next gen launch title.

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.

I was just discussing a similar scenario with a friend just the other day.

If (and only if) Nintendo is really destined to succeed WiiU with a new console very early, then I could see a TP situation.  It won't skip the WiiU, so I think the OP's prediction is wrong, but I could see it being a launch game for the next console with enchanced visuals in native 1080p vs 720p on WiiU.




If it comes out on Wii U in 2 years, then it will be a short dumbed down game like skyward sword was. We'll see.

Lol hitting on my avatar without even touching my point. 

The witcher series dark/demon souls even dragons dogma have added a lot to rpgs/action games especially gameplay wise.

And yes having voice acting wouldbe nice.
