Zelda Wii U

With the announcement that Nintendo will release their new console, code-named NX, next March, the company has also stated that the new The Legend of Zelda game will be coming in 2017.

Additionally, The new The Legend of Zelda will be released on both Wii U and NX. Nintendo says the cause for the delay was for “further quality improvements”.

The Legend of Zelda will be coming to Wii U and NX in 2017.

    That was predictable. They need a big title like Zelda to make the launch library of the NX more appealing.

    Damn I was really hoping for Zelda and the NX this year.

    Makes sense to do another Twilight Princess situation. Zelda IS Nintendo, so with this announcement maybe they are trying to capture the lighting in the bottle that was the Wii with the masses again.

    I’m fine with my Wii U version, though, which is this generation’s Gamecube. Maybe with this announcement, this new console will appeal to a younger generation. Splatoon and Fire Emblem Fates/Awakening were big hits, so maybe another one of those at launch will get them excited?
