Forums - Nintendo Discussion - If Zelda:BotW delay is going to happen, Wii U version will be cancelled.

moved zelda to switch (without the switch that game would be released in 2015 - early 2016)

Zelda is always delayed a year anyway (Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword were both delayed), so I'm guessing Zelda would be a 2016 game without the Switch.



Can't wait for The Zelder Scrolls 3: Breath of The Wild Hunt!

To be honest the ps3 has its issues with ports some are good and some are bad. The 360 maintains superiority over wii u most of the time, the ps3 not so much, frame rates may be better but sometimes the graphics are worse. Some games actually run at lower resolution on wii u like sonic transformed and also have missing detail. One big plus for wii u is it almost always maintains vertical sync probably by virtue of its later gpu architecture. I have to say though as an owner of ps3, 360 and wii u when you see the ps3 firing on all cylinders its pretty incredible. 

However honestly if the wii u was 352 gflops and later architecture and with that 32MB of embedded memory it would clearly have far better superiority over the older consoles. 176 gflops and a weak cpu tallies up perfectly with its actual performance as well as its thermal dynamics, power draw and the actual image of its circuitry.

I feel quite resentful about how low Nintendo went with the wii u. They charged serious money for something that probably cost peanuts to make. No wonder even though the wii u has sold poorly they haven't made huge losses.

Like I already said the wii u had similar problems like the ps3. The OoO Cpu design an GPGPU made ports very hard. Also the low install base doesnt justified to much development time and to big teams to work on those ports to keep it economic. The Wii U Version was definitly never the lead plattform. 

Games like mario Kart 8 show the capabilities of the Wii U and for me it does look alot more like 350 Gflops. But in the end it doesnt really matter, we will see how the switch does perform and how big the gap between switch and wii u will be. Ill say it wont even be noticeable.

 

 



Its not a delay.

No it's not. No reason to. They will release both versions hard and digital on both platforms.

Are they handing out packs of Viagra before launch?



B-but they promoted it on E3.. as a Wii U game

By the time Zelda releases, it will be almost 6 years since Skyward Sword released. I mean that is a ridiculously long time to wait. I don't ever want to wait that long between main entries. A Zelda release is enough to convince me to buy Nintendo's system. The absolute best case scenario, is we'll get 2 main entries of Zelda during the Switch's lifetime . It's been just too damn long.

Agreed, the Zelda team has gotten ridiculously slow and unproductive. 

At this rate, we'll get 2 Zelda games in ten years from 2012-2022, while if they made their games every three years like most other AAA studios can, we could have gotten 3.

Well, Super Paper Mario was once promoted as a Gamecube game, and Last Guardian as a PS3 game.

I suppose it's possible for the Wii U version to be canceled, but I just don't see it happening. It wouldn't make much sense to put that much work into it, only to drop it at the end of development.

I see it being a Twilight Princess route, where both versions will release, and for some reason the Wii U version will be worth more... maybe? It wouldn't matter anyways though, as the Wii U version will likely be available via digital anyways.

I hate to say it, but yes, it would make sense.

Launching it only on Switch would force every Zelda fan (and any gamer that wants to play the new Zelda), to buy their new console. And Nintendo needs to sell as many Switch consoles as they can.

But even fans have a limit on the amount of abuse they will take. I was a Nintendo fan since 1994, but if Zelda is made Switch exclusive, I will refuse to buy it or Switch on principal. Wii U gamers comprise the loyalist core of Nintendo's dwindling fanbase, pissing them off is not a good idea.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I will go to Japan and kick Kimishima in the balls if that happens.

You take care of his balls while I'll kick his ass lol.

 

I don't see it being cancelled at all though.
