Is Zelda Still Coming to Wii U?
During Nintendo's recent financials, a full list of confirmed Wii U titles for 2016 was presented and strangely enough, Zelda was missing. Earlier in the year, Nintendo confirmed that the upcoming Zelda title was still in development for Wii U but would be missing the 2015 release window. Many speculated that the game was pushed to a 2016 release but Nintendo left it as "TBD".
In June, during E3, Mr. Shigeru Miyamoto mentioned that they had some great footage of the new Zelda entry but decided against showing it in favor of focusing on 2015 games.
We know that Nintendo plans to share more about their upcoming gaming platform, codenamed NX, starting in 2016 so the question that comes to mind is, "Will the new Zelda game be pushed to NX?". It is assumed that once the NX is announced Nintendo will work hard to get it out the door before the year ends. If this is indeed the case, the upcoming Zelda game may never see the light of day on the Wii U.
Not appearing on Nintendo's list for 2016 games may be just a coincidence but this missing piece of information does sure raise some doubt.
