- Zelda Eternity
In an unusual move for Nintendo, a recent video labeled as a “Zelda Development Update” was uploaded to the Nintendo of Europe YouTube channel, featuring only Zelda series director Eiji Aonuma directly addressing the audience to discuss the development of the upcoming Legend of Zelda title for Wii U.
Unfortunately, the message wasn’t that the game is going along swimmingly and we can expect it by Christmas. Instead, he reported on his decision to fulfill the Wii U’s capabilities and make Zelda for Wii U the best game it can possibly be, regardless of how it effects the game’s development schedule.
What this boils down to is that Zelda probably won’t be reaching store shelves until 2016. The good news is that, if all goes according to plan, our patience will reward us with possibly the greatest Zelda experience yet, featuring a rich open world and many new gameplay possibilities not yet conceived of by fans.
What do you think? Do you think Aonuma’s decision is the best in the long run, or can you simply not bear to wait? Let us know in the comments below.
Early last month, the internet was abuzz on account of a Wall Street Journal article claiming that Netflix was working on developing an original series based on The Legend of Zelda. This would have been a big deal, considering that Nintendo has been very cautious about allowing their IPs to be adapted into movies or TV series.
It was, however, not meant to be. Nintendo president Satoru Iwata recently went on record with Time Magazine to dispel the rumors:
“As of now, I have nothing new to share with you in regard to the use of our IPs for any TV shows or films, but I can at least confirm that the article in question is not based on correct information.”
What do you think? Are you disappointed? Do you think Nintendo shouldn’t allow their IPs to be adapted? Let us know in the comments below.
