    Eh, i doubt it.
    Even when nintendo doesn't care about the U anymore, they'll probably release it even when it lags like hell.
    After showing the game on the console so many times already.
    ~They do the same for the o3ds~

    And suddenly leaks like this after yooka with pretty much the same issue?
    Ehh, i dunno.

    If true, the backlash should be hilarious.
    "It's coming in 2015!"
    "Please understand, it's coming 2016"
    "We're having trouble and it's coming 2017"
    "Sorry guys, we're only releasing on the Switch now"

    Tbh, it would make sense to cancel it. The WiiU is dead and that title alone won't save it, so having it for their next console, which is more powerful is ideal for them to do so in the long run to make the switch lol:).

    As I stated when I created that thread, I saw it on 4chan first and Nintendo hasn't said anything about it so don't take the news to heart. I'm starting a see few news articles reporting on this now using that blog I linked to as a source.

    Nintendo knows that their fans have been waiting years for Zelda:BotW to be released on the WiiU so they wouldn't dare to do that, it would be a huge insult and offence to their own customers. I have it pre-ordered and I really hope that they don't cancel the WiiU release.

    Zelda:BotW is the one game I most desire to play on the WiiU.

    Unlikely. The demo was running on a WiiU during E3. There is no way they would have cancelled a fully functionnal engine.

    And they showed off Wii U footage recently in the Game Awards 2016 which was just two weeks ago (December 1, 2016)...

    They still have time to optimize the game on Wii U. Developers usually start optimizing stuff around the end of development, anyway.

    An easy way to tell if something is fake is if you are only seeing the story on places like gamefaqs and gbatemp.

    Edit: And apparently this rumor cam from 4chan :/

    So?

    Bad framerate has never stopped a console game from release before.

    This is not true. No source has confirmed it's true and all they have for "proof" is a random piece of paper on a desk.

    Also, OP, "gamefaqs" doesn't count as a source if it's just a unconfirmed forum post. Come on you should know better

    Hey, as long as it doesn't drop down to 5 fps like the last guardian for ps4, it's fine. :P

    Pretty sure that never actually happens (played the whole game through and never had a drop go down that low).

    Maybe not that low, but i've seen some videos where the frame rate went pretty shitty.
    Might be some random thing, or it has been patched already, idk.

    But yeah, i don't think it's too bad, at least we get it for the Wii.
    + They still have some time to fix things, we'll see how it goes.
