Zelda Wii U Delayed, Star Fox Next?
Yesterday, Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma issued an apology and announced that the Legend of Zelda for Wii U will not be appearing at E3 2015 and will not release in 2015 at all. By way of explanation, he said new and exciting gameplay possibilities arose during the development of the game. So significant were these ideas that they decided to push out the release date so they could fully explore them. Nintendo has never been shy about taking as long as it takes to make good games. However, in recent years, they have adopted a strategy where they avoid announcing or showing titles until they are very far in development, or even ready to release, to avoid disappointment at missed deadlines. The fact that they so publicly promised the game this year, then delayed it, I think speaks to the significance of the gameplay innovations they are working on.
There's no telling what this means for Star Fox, since Mr. Miyamoto stated it would come out before this Zelda game. Hopefully we will still see this one at E3.
really hope they don’t take the lines from the last game.
Remember what happened with Ocarina of Time? That game was constantly delayed too, and it ended up being what many reviewers describe as the best game ever made. If this title follows the same pattern, this delay can only reflect positively on the game’s quality.
I think Star Fox will too. Besides, I was actually thinking that Star Fox might get delayed since the day Miyamoto announced it. The positive side is that if it’s delayed, it’ll get better.
it’s okay zelda fan could wait, if it get delay til the nintendo nx comes out it’ll better be 3x to 4x times better, that is the system is more powerful and stable than the ps4.
I’m not surprised of Zelda being delayed. This has been going on since Ocarina of Time after all and this is no different. As for Starfox Wii U, this puts us in a better position after all. Because it won’t have any pressure and competition for this year and with Zelda being pushed back for next year, it would give Miyamoto more time to polish on SF Wii U to have it done(hopefully) by the end of this year during the holiday season. One thing for sure is that it has been confirmed to be shown at this year’s E3 and will be playable. The differences between the developments of a Starfox and a Zelda game is the fact that Starfox doesn’t take that long to do since it is a space shooter while Zelda on the other hand is more of the epic feel to it in what you expect from an adventure game. Anyway, I’m excited to hear more on SF Wii U this year because of being as one of the major titles that will be showcased at the event.
