Will we get it this year?
>Zeldas 30th anniversary
Wii U is ded and Nintendo needs a proper launch title for the NX
inb4 NX will launch this year. What do you think
No, I'd just rather it didn't take them 5 years to make a mediocre game with nothing to show for it yet other than a few minutes of tiny, off-screen gameplay. Nintendo hasn't made me confident that spending more time will guarentee a better game anyway seeing as Skyward Sword took their longest development time ever.
We've seen nothing of dungeons, towns, anything other than just riding the horse around a field. It's clear this shit is in development hell.
Splatoon is purely an online shooter. Not unlike CoD in the sense that some weapon packs get put out, maps get updated and general balancing occurs. Mario Maker is a world builder, not unlike mine craft or little big planet so naturally people want more tidbits to build with added. Zelda should be a core single player experience with nothing ad-hoc and no shitty patch updates. It should come ready to play as is
I said patch, I meant extraneous content that may detract from the overall game. The best content in Zelda games has always been tucked away as a side quest or secret mini game IMO
NX is a codename for the new 3Ds and Wii U
NX is going to be a handheld released this year as a successor of the 3Ds.
The home console is going to be the NX home console , with much better stats BUT same architecture.
In other words:
Every game released on NX Portable can be played on NX homeconsole and vica versa
So no Telda this year is coming to Wii U and NX portable
In early 2013 they said development was going super smoothly and it should be out sooner than expected.
Come E3 2014 they announce it to come out in 2015, with Aonuma in December saying it will definitely come out that year.
The whole of 2015 goes by and we get 10 seconds or Link just riding a horse?
Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword both got loads of heavily edited trailers from their reveals up to their releases. The tiny amount of footage given for what should be such a huge release shows that there's clearly some shit going on backstage.
They released four games in the timespan of 2000-2006, and those are the console games. Not the anon you're talking to, but there's no excuse for them to take this long with the game. The same shit happened with Skyward Sword, and that ended up worse than Twilight Princess Wii. How the fuck does that game have better controls than Skyward? The fact that they had to shit out Tri Force Heroes to tide Zelda fans shows Zelda U is either taking that long and it's going to be an amazing game, or someone dropped the ball, big time.
I expect a late 2017 release, and it won't live up to the hype. Expect another shitty spin-off title to be announced for 2016.
I'm anticipating the release of this game, but it's odd how un-hyped I am for it. It's probably for the best, since that way I won't be too disappointed if it turns out bad, but I can walk away pleasantly surprised if it's good. Either way, it's completely out of my control so I'm not worried about it anymore.
I'm more than willing to have a good debate with you, but only if you're willing to give some content worth reading. Remember that a game taking a while to release doesn't mean it'll be good, or all of that time was focused on perfecting it.
Calm down, we'll most likely see something at E3, if not in a Nintendo Direct beforehand. I wasn't surprised when there was nothing at E3 last year because Aonuma straight-up said "we're not aiming for a 2015 release, we've got new ideas we want to implement" earlier in the year. We'll probably see what ideas bore fruit this E3 at the latest.
I feel like it's going to be bad and bank off of Skyrim, from the way people keep going on about open world.
A lot of Jap devs liked Skyrim at release, and for whatever reason, Skyrim and Zelda have been compared a lot. I wouldn't know why as I haven't played Skyrim, but if it's anything like Bethesda's other games then I'm not looking forward to this.
It doesn't help that they're clearly going through development issues.
>It doesn't help that they're clearly going through development issues.
I'm not sure if it's that or if it's just them taking their time. Zelda U got delayed because, at least as far as the PR we've been given, they had more ideas they wanted to implement and it couldn't do that and make a 2015 release at the same time. It's one thing to delay a game because of development issues but when the reason that's been officially presented is "we want to make the best game we can", I'm a little less cynical on the matter. If that's the case, Zelda U can come out when it's ready. I'm fine with that.
I see your point, but who knows. They might surprise us.
