I am distraught. There has not been a decent Zelda game since Twilight Princess in 2006 - thats almost 10 years ago. (the re-release of Wind Waker does not count as a new Zelda game - although it was awesome). I'm just going to have to keep replaying and replaying those two for another 10 years until this new one is finally released. Maaaan.
WELL, THAT’S A one-two punch for the Wii U: Nintendo said today that its highly anticipated new Legend of Zelda game won’t make its planned 2015 release date, and in case that wasn’t enough, the game won’t even be shown at this year’s E3 Expo in June. Zelda was set to be the tentpole release for the beleaguered Wii U console this year, so its loss is a pretty massive blow to Nintendo’s holiday lineup. Then again, if you didn’t see this one coming a mile away, you haven’t been paying attention: Nintendo regularly delays its games, especially when said game is a new entry in the Zelda series. (I laid down my marker on this the minute Nintendo announced the game’s release date, by the way.)
