    Forgive the formatting as I am on mobile at the moment, but in a complete breaking news story, Nintendo has confirmed that Zelda Wii U, arguably one of the most anticipated Nintendo titles of this year, has now been delayed to 2016.

    I'll be grabbing the popcorn to anticipate the inevitable butthurt. More time for the release just means more time to refine the game *gets off soapbox*.

    And they're not at least showing it at E3...why? They'd better have a plan to blow the show outta the water, I hope it's not like their presentation back in 2008.

    Hopefully this gives them time to fix all the of issues the trailers saw, mainly them really not looking up to the task of doing open world in 2015.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it is now a Nintendo NX title.

    Edit: what is Nintendo gonna show at E3 this year? Nintendo rented the biggest room ever used for this years coming E3. If its not a new console or device or zelda?, wtf can it be? Pokemon Snap 2.0?

    Thought it was oddly on the Gamecube and Wii, so maybe both Wii U and NX...?

    once again i kind of expected this. same with uncharted. these are big big games that need to be perfect cos they are system sellers and the deadlines nintendo and sony both gave were so unreasonable. wouldn't be surprised if it was on purpose to get hype train + console sales accelerated a bit.

    Prolly a sneak-peak of the NX which as usual doesn't proivde much and maybe something along the lines of pokken. Tbh if they delay anything else like Xenoblade, then i'm officially done with Big N.

    To be fair, Wii and GC were literally the same thing, minus a few things in power and the control scheme.

    Delayed == finalized product.
    Too early == Buggy and requires patches and such. *cough* assasssin's creed *cough*

    Knowing zelda games are quality synonym, I prefer it delayed and perfect than early release and broken.

    They're not even gonna show it at E3? That, is disappointing. I mean, they've been working on this for what... three, going on four years?

    Such a misleading title. They never said it was delayed to 2016, only that it was not their priority to release it in 2015. Huge HUGE difference.

    If the NX is even a home console.

    Anyway, I'm more hyped than disappointed after watching the video.
