Yes, I am pretty sure that Nintendo would done something similar like MS done with XB1 if they didnt miss holiday season with NX, but after  they moved launch for 4 months they changed their plans too.

Well whatever they have planned, it better be perfectly explained and leave no questions.

Well did said earlier they don't want to show NX too early because competition could steal their idea. And we all know that Nintendo keeps their NX cards very close to chest, for instance people saying that NDA for NX is much stronger than ever before, and we still dont know anything except release date and Zelda NX.

Nintendo keeps everything close to their damn chest. Yoshi's Wooly World they refused to show anything new on it for like 2 years as if it was a matter of life and death security or something.

I think thats because it underwent alot of changes. Not really because they wanted to hide it.

They should have release it in 2015.
The only excuse for 2016 was the 30th anniversary.

But do you want to know why? Because it doesn't matter how many times they delay and lie in our faces, people will still defend them, regardless of how bad are their decisions. The problem is not Nintendo making bad decisions, but those supporting those mistakes.

I agree with this. Look, I love Nintendo, I think it's the best videogame company out there, but there are choices that are just bad. They lied to us about Zelda, they delayed the game TWO YEARS. And now they're telling us that it's because "they need to improve the game". That's a lie, we know it, it's just to launch with the NX. I bought the 2016 delay, but I can't possibly buy this delay. Iwata himself said that the game was in the final stages of development, one month ago! This is just unjustifiable. They're keeping the game for themselves. They're willingly delaying the game, and they don't give a damn about WiiU owners right now. We supported them when almost anyone has bought the console (I mean, 13 M is not anyone, but it's nothing in the console market). And this is Nintendo's "thanks for your support". And people are defending them? Well, fuck you Nintendo. Thanks for pissing the fandom which support you these last 3 years. 

Yeah, it make sense business-wise, but sometimes I'd like them to do something which doesn't involve being a pain in the ass with Nintendo fans. Because they're constantly trying to bulshitting us. And I feel like I'm in a sado-masochist relationship right now.

NX is vital to Nintendo's future. They need to re-claim fans who didn't buy a Wii U. An amazing Zelda at launch is a good way to do this. If the game is a port of a Wii U title, it won't have the same cache. It's pretty straightforward - and necessary.

Other companys delays games too! don't act like it's only Nintendo!

other companys have enough other games so those delays arnt hurting the consumer.

Like uncharted 4 was delayed in 2015, but ps4 owner still got bloodborne, witcher3 , metal gear solid 5, batman arkham knight, Battlefront, New cod/fifa/madden/Assassins Creed, Fallout and co in 2015.

Zelda got delayed and wii u owners got a HD Port of zelda TP, a arcade port from pokken and a dual screen force motion control star fox. Wonderfull.

That Sony has better third party support than Nintendo has nothing to do with it that other comapanys also delay games like Nintendo! Sony is just in the better position because of their third party support.

But they are hiding bascily from moment they announced it year ago and they didn't said anything yet about. They definatly want to hide it.

We dont even know if Zelda U will be released after the NX version like TP did. So what they really are marketing is Paper Mario if thar happens.

I don't think that matters too much. What Nintendo wants for this year is for people to continue to buy wiiU and wiiU games. If they show off Zelda for the NX, then the wiiU sales would tank fully where as if they show off Zelda for the wiiU, then the wiiU sales would continue imo. So even if they are doing that TP nonsense with the wiiU and NX, as long as they promote the wiiU version until they announce the NX, then people should continue to buy wiiUs.

I doubt Nintendo wants the sales of the wiiU to drop until they are ready to go full NX. 9 Months is a very long time (from e3 announcement to NX launch)

By releasing the NX date. Sales will drop more. Anyone left over that hasn't bought the system. Now knows to wait 9 months. Basically, what Capcom did with Resident Evil 4, is a good example.

As for why Nintendo doens't sell the Wii U version first. Simple. Canibalzation. Most will buy the Wii U one. And not buy the NX one, only 3 months later. There's hardly gonna be anything different between the two. Like what. Resolution, and maybe the FPS?
