    Yes.
    Nintendo has done things like this before.

    With the Wii2 obviously being shown this year, is there a risk for Skyward Sword to be disbanded, to be released with the new console instead?
    I fear this can be a scenario. Of course I don´t hope this will happen, but you never know...=/

    I don't think it will be canceled, as the official Nintendo Magazine (UK) shows a possible release date of october 2011 which is quite plausible. Also the so called "Project Café" doesn't mean there will be no Wii Games anymore - As the DSi came around, there were still normal DS Games and even now where the 3DS is out there are DS Games

    The DSi is still as DS, though. A better example would be the 3DS, which is not a DS.

    Nah. Twilight Princess came to close Gamecube´s life. Then they ported it to Wii.

    Most likely they´re finally saying goodbye to Wii Nintendo System.

    But it's not like the DSi was the official next handheld. It wasn't suppose to be an all out replacement for the DS/DSL from what I can see.


    On Topic: I don't think it'll be cancelled.... I'm willing to bet that before E3 2011 or during it, we'll get a bit more info on the game.

    Now, about the OP, they could do it. Twilight Princess was delayed for more than a year to be on the Wii after all.
    But I doubt they will. They know they pissed the fans off when they did it with TP.

    Same thing pretty much happened to Twilight Princess. Don't be to worried Nintendo will get way to much hate leaving a Zelda Title at the end of Development.

    Twilight Princess suffered this because the Wii has the same graphics capabilities as the GC so it was easier to port it. But now I dont see something happening to Skyward Sword cuz(IF THE RUMORS ARE TRUE) the Wii successor is a lot more powerful than the Wii and I'm pretty sure that if Nintendo want Skyward Sword in the "Wii 2" instead of port it they'll remake it with HD graphics and that means they don't need to delay Skyward Sword for the Wii

    But I don't see that happening cuz I think Nintendo want the Wii die with an awesome exclusive game for it. I mean it will be only for the Wii IMO

    I think it's more likely they will use Ocarina of Time to celebrate the 25 Zelda anniversary ^^

    There is absolutely no chance of Skyward Sword being canceled from the Wii.

    The game was built around the Wii Remote, and their not just going to just scrap away the best part of the game to put it on the new console. I doubt there will even be a version of it on the Wii 2.

    with the wii2 being downward compatible apparently (supporting like 300 controllers this time), there wouldnt be a problem to just up the graphics and release it on wii2

    They should just pull a Twilight Princess and release it for both.

    if they release it for project starbucks, we'll never get a proper title. you'll always be playing a previous generation zelda on a new console, just like twilight.

    The new console will be backward compatible so there is no sense for them to port the game to their new console when it already works on it anyway.
