    Today, Shigeru Miyamoto announced that the release date for the Wii U title will be pushed back. Miyamoto says the game could technically be released at this point, but he wants to spend more time polishing the gameplay and cutscenes. Is it a wise choice to delay one of the Wii U's few big holiday titles?

    Every time I see the logo I think it's StarFox Zero 3
    :lol:


    I doubt they'll move it to the NX. They should have done most of the development already. The Wii was a more powerful GameCube, so the Twilight Princess thing made sense. We have no indication of the NX being an improved WiiU though.

    And they said that this game will be released before Zelda U.

    Good luck to those still hoping that thing will come to Wii U.

    Damn. Was really looking forward to this. Its the only other Wii U game I want right now. Oh well I don't have the money for the game right now anyways. Maybe by then I will hopefully.

    I gotta be honest, I'm happy with this decision if they'll be able to make the game look better than it would if it was released on the gamecube.

    Ugh, all of this screams NX. Hopefully they do a dual launch like they did with Twilight Princess, but at this point who knows. Hoping I'm not hating myself for a recent WiiU purchase a year from now.

    Do people really think the NX will be released before late 2016? Why?

    I don't know.

    I'm honestly not expecting the NX to be released until late 2016, maybe early 2017.

    Honestly, I wouldn't put it past them, nothing stopping them from fucking us six ways from Sunday and delaying more big titles :creep:

    That's a suspicious streak of delays there by nintendo. I too think they may be taking their time partly because they want to offer two versions of the games (WiiU and NX), with the intention of baiting people into the upgrade.

    Especially if you consider that nintendo's biggest problem with its last 4 systems was a lack of good launch titles. Perhaps they are going to "fix" this by delaying the last previous-gen games instead.

    I don't even expect the NX to be a console in the traditional sense of the word. From what I understand it's supposed to be sold alongside the 3DS and the Wii U.
