Consider this:

- Porting takes time and ressources. Games like Twilight Princess HD tooked around 2 years to port (they started anytime in 2014). Zelda wii u port will most likely be done by the zelda team themself (they wont outsource such a project, no way). So the time they are using now on Zelda port, they could put directly into the next zelda. Result: Zelda Wii U on NX will delay the next zelda for around 1 year (because they will "waste" their time with an port)

Porting from PowerPC to X86: http://www.destructoid.com/naughty-dog-porting-the-last-of-us-to-ps4-was-hell-275048.phtml

- If they port Zelda Wii U to NX and the NX will be a success, they will probl do the same to the next zelda. Any Nintendo console will be started with an new Zelda game. So the next Zelda game would also be on the NX successor (5-6 year development time = console cycle). This means the nx (in terms of zelda games) will probl be very useless.

- Most of us own a Wii U anyway. So getting the game on the wii u is not a problem. For those who dont own a wii u, it will probl make much more sense to get a wii u for zelda at NX launch. Even with an strong lineup, NX wouldnt had any chance to compete with the Wii U´s current lineup. Also the wii u will probl drop in priece when NX releases. Keep in mind, you have Smash, mario kart, mario 3D world, Mario Maker, Bayonetta 2, Pokken Tournament, Star Fox Zero, Xenoblade X, Splatoon and much more on the wii u. Even with a strong lineup, the NX could never compete against that. It will probl take around 2 years till the NX will have an as good game lineup as the wii u currently have.

 

So even if it would make sense for nintendo to port the game (more sales, better NX sales), it wouldnt make sense for us custormers/nintendo fans.

Thats why I think they should find other ways to sell Zelda on Wii U and to sell the NX (other new games, third party support).

 

BTW: Zelda Wii U on NX wouldnt even do AS MUCH. Skyward Sword sold just 3 mio copies on the wii, and that system already have an 100mio installed hw base. So do you really expects millions of gamers will go and buy the NX just to play the next Zelda? 97% of the Wii owners didnt even bought the last zelda, and they had the hardware to play it. The masses wont buy an NX to play an game thats also available on the wii u.

Zelda Wii U on NX will probl sell less consoles then Mario Kart 8 sold Wii Us.

Yes same, but on the other hand they will put time and ressources in a game/port we wiiu-buyers wouldnt care a bit about. Keep in mind, without a port they would had more time to enhance the wii u version or already starting on the next zelda game (sooner releases). So it would be an disadvantage for us. If they do the Wii U Port, the next Zelda game would probl released in 2022 instead of 2021 without the wii u port (because they could already started development for "zelda nx").

Well this happened with TPP and the game wasnt the best but ti actually turned out well.



I don't want it on the NX. Nintendo should start working on new Zelda game for NX instead.

TPP = Twilight Princess?

The Wii and Gamecube used almot exactly the same hardware. That didnt needed much work ;)

Twilight Princess HD on the other hand took around 2 years of work, but by an external studio so it didnt slowed down the zelda team.



Hell yes I want it at Wii U. It's the goddamn reason (besides Splatoon) I have the damned console.

The thing is, Nintendo must also target the market that it lost with NX.So Zelda Wii U possibly also being on NX is to make it more appealing to that people, to that market, to buy the NX out of the gate.The same can be said about the smash rumour(in case you dont know, there is arumour that a smash is already being developed for NX.We just dont know if it is a port or a brand new one.I personally believe is a port)

For me, it wont make much difference if it is also avaiable in the NX.Nintendo needs to succeed, and if putting a port of the game on NX gonna help it, then im good.



Yes, I want it on NX, because I don't think I will ever get a Wii U at this point.



Official member of VGC's Nintendo family, approved by the one and only RolStoppable. I feel honored.

It doesn't really matter what they "should" do instead. All signs point to it coming out on NX. It's already set in motion, what ever "it" is, at this point.

All there is to do is to deal with it.



Well, this is new.
