With dual release game will certainly sell few millions more than on Wii U alone, and definitely will effect on NX launch. Basically two things from Nintendo will profit in big way, it clear business sense, and basically dont have one negative thing doing that, also we already saw something similar with TP.

Few millions more? You are again over exaggerating with nothing that would support this statement.

http://www.vgchartz.com/gamedb/?name=zelda&publisher=&platform=&genre=&minSales=0&results=200

  • 1998: Ocarina of Time = 7.60m (after gaining cult status as "best game ever" and the first 3D-Zeda
  • 2000: Majora's Mask = 3.36m (1 platform)
  • 2002: Wind Waker = 4.60m (1 platform)
  • 2006: Twilight Princess = 8.84m (2 platforms)
  • 2011: Skyward Sword = 4.05m (1 platform)

It seems to me that the 2 platform strategy of TP paid off, it helped to sell a few millions more than MM, WW or SS. I really doubt that it would have reached even 5 million on GameCube only.

Nintendo isn't obligated to do shit. If they wanted to they could cancel Zelda U & put the series on an indefinite hiatus and there would be nothing u or anyone else could do about it.

Guess what? 2D Mario is a far more popular franchise than Zelda and neither N64 nor GameCube received an exclusive entry, they didn't even receive ports/remasters, the series took an 18 year hiatus on consoles. Metroid skipped N64 and had 8 years between Super & Prime. Kid I cards was dormant for 21 years. Pikmin went 9 years between 2 & 3. Luigi's Mansion went 12 years without a sequel. Pilotwings went 15 Yeats between releases. Star Fox Zero is the first in 10 years. Punch-Out went 15 years. F-Zero hasn't gotten a new release in over a decade. The list goes on.

Nintendo can do whatever they want and a few people bitching on the Internet aren't going to stop them from doing what they think is best for their business.

 

And its these exact business decisions and lack of caring for what the fans wanted that got them where they are now. It's time to stop pissing their fans off wouldn't you say?

 

Nintendo fans aren't a single collective sum of people who all want the same thing. The people who complain on the Internet are a very small minority.

Based on the vocal forum goers, u would think Metroid was one of the most popular series ever but it's super fucking niche. The series averages 1-2 million per game, that's worse than Mario Party, a series that is often hated on.

Games like Tomodachi Life and Happy Home Designer were talked about on forums as if they were going to bomb yet they are multimillion selling games, games like Bayonetta 2 & Xenoblade X were talked as game of the year material yet both are very niche.

This kinda shows that the vocal forum goers are not the typical Nintendo audience.

You are right about the last part and that's why Zelda has to be available for NX as well. Nintendo shouldn't piss off their fans by trying to force them to buy a Wii U.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Thank you lol I get really annoyed when people think everything should be catered to their specific desires.

Its said that the portable is releasing this year and the Wii U will be replaced next year. All together it should cost about $400 for the whole bundle. Its also said that the NX will be 900p so the PS4 will remain the most powerful console.

I don't understand this mentality that many WiiU owners will be angry and feel betrayed if Zelda ends up on NX too. If the game skipped WiiU altogether then sure, but I don't think anyone expects that.

I don't remember Gamecube owners being particularly upset over the Twilight Princess situation other than they had to wait three weeks longer to play it if they couldn't find a Wii.
