Zelda Wii U Plot Rumors and Possible E3 Appearance

caballo The Zelda fan-base was collectively vexed when Nintendo made the announcement that Zelda Wii U would no longer be released in 2015 nor be shown at this year’s E3, but Nintendo may be applying a bandage to at least one of these sore wounds. Zelda publication The Hidden Triforce was tipped off by a GameStop employee who overheard his store’s Nintendo Representative spilling fact after fact about Zelda Wii U, and amassed a nice list of rumors. The game is said to be compatible with several Amiibo, will not place Ganondorf as its main antagonist, and will be shown at E3 with a trailer and official art.
That’s only a taste of these rumors, devour the rest after the jump!

What Majora’s Mask Could Teach Zelda Wii U

zelda-wii-uWith Zelda Wii U one of the more highly anticipated games for Nintendo’s home console and little information regarding it, many have begun speculating on the latest title in the series.

While speculation and opinion circulate amongst fans, Kenny McDonnell has come to a rather succinct conclusion to what the upcoming Zelda should be. Oh, and he uses Majora’s Mask 3D as the foundation for this conclusion.

Will Nintendo Announce Any Zelda Related Information For E3

Screen Shot 2015-05-12 at 2.31.08 PMNintendo of America has stated that they will make an announcement as to their E3 plans tomorrow at 9am PST. The news came across as a tweet with a picture of the hooded figure you see “training” for E3. For us at Zelda Dungeon we can’t help but wonder, what will be in store for our green-clad hero during this year’s E3? Nintendo has already said that they will not be discussing Zelda Wii U, as well as their plans for the NX, and mobile gaming. So what does that leave all the Zelda fans left to hope for? Nintendo has been known in the past to pull things out of their hat at completely the last minute. So even if we don’t hear any Zelda related information announced tomorrow I will still remain hopeful… if not a little doubtful. There are still a few possibilities for getting some Zelda love at E3 as Nintendo has also mentioned that they have several games yet to be announced for 2016.

Head past the jump to join the discussion.

Gossip Stone: Will the Zelda Wii U Delay Hurt Nintendo’s 2015?

Zelda Wii U Delay Although the reaction to the delay of Zelda Wii U wasn’t entirely negative, it still was one of top few most anticipated Nintendo games for 2015.

Zelda Dungeon Talks: Should Link Have A Companion In Zelda Wii U?

In most Zelda games, Link has a companion that accompanies him throughout the journey. These characters provide more characterization for our hero, usually doing all the talking for him and most closely interacting with him. These characters all play an important role in their respective games; whether it be Fi delivering messages, Navi and Tatl giving advice, or Proxi somewhat giving voice to Link in Hyrule Warriors. It’s generally known that some people despise Navi and Fi, but with that being said, do we want someone alongside Link in the upcoming Zelda Wii U title?

In this week’s Zelda Dungeon Talks, various staff members give their opinions on this topic, and elaborate on their reasoning.

Gossip Stone: How Important Is The Zelda Timeline To You?

Untitled-8The timeline of the Zelda series has been something at the forefront of debates for numerous years. Many fans, myself included, theorized on the timeline a long time before there was an official announcement. If you aren’t familiar with this term, a timeline places all of the games in a series in some sort of chronological order, usually taking place in the same dimension. What makes it confusing is not only the complexity of the Zelda games, but also that they’re never released in any sort of sequential order, so it was solely up to the fans to speculate the potential timeline.
