Two Upcoming Zelda Titles Land In Famitsu’s Most Wanted

Screen Shot 2015-11-16 at 7.56.13 AMThis week, Famitsu released the results of its latest most wanted games charts. All votes were cast between November 5th and the 11th, and two different Zelda titles landed in the Top 25. The upcoming title, Hyrule Warriors Legends came in at #14 with 220 votes. Not all together a bad spot considering it has already been released for the Wii U, it would seem as if all of the newer content that will be added for the 3DS version is getting people excited. Although I am slightly biased as I would have preferred to see it in the Top 10, but that mainly stems from the fact that I find myself much more excited for this version than I was for the Wii U version. The next upcoming title to land its place in the most wanted charts is the yet unnamed Zelda Wii U, this game didn’t fair as well as it landed in the #23 spot with 177 votes, but considering this isn’t the first time we see this title in the most wanted, and it still doesn’t have a set release date, I would say it is not a bad showing. Its nice to see that a game that has been delayed is still able to inspire attention and desire from fans, though that emotion from gamers can be fleeting, and I definitely do not want to see fans loose interest because it took too long to release! What are your thoughts? Do you agree with where each title landed in the most wanted charts? What game are you most excited for? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

GameOver Jesse: Play As Female Link in Zelda Wi U?

maxresdefaultAbout a week ago, GameOver Jesse on YouTube took a look at recent happenings in Zelda, and examined what the possibilities might be for having a female lead character in the upcoming Zelda Wii U. With the new Linkle DLC for Hyrule Warriors, and possible evidence of female roles in developer quotes, there is certainly a lot to speculate on. With the help of RmfhGaming, Jesse discusses a lot of what he thinks Zelda Wii U will do to “change the conventions of Zelda”, as we have been told it will.

Is Zelda Wii U a Mistake for Nintendo?

zelu With the recent Nintendo Direct confirming Zelda Wii U’s release on the Wii U console in 2016, many have been wondering, what about the NX? Nintendo has been reluctant to share more information about it, but Forbes contributor Paul Tassi sees no other option for the console than a 2016 holiday release. Therein lies the problem, if Zelda Wii U releases in fall of 2016 for only the Wii U it will be disastrous for sales once the NX launches. The best solution for this case would be to adapt the game for both consoles, but the NX likely won’t make use of a gamepad, so this offers up more problems than solutions.

With so much uncertainty surrounding the NX’s launch, the fate of Zelda Wii U is still unwritten, but much will be speculated after the jump!

The Hope Of Zelda Wii U By M. Productions

newzWith the announcement last week about Twilight Princess HD launching next year and the snippet of Zelda U that we saw in the Direct, many are wondering what this could mean for the future of Zelda U. Could there possibly be a “link” between the two, could we see some amiibo compatibility between the titles? Could the fact that Eiji Aonuma worked on Twilight Princess and is doing the same with Zelda U, mean that we will see similarities from the two titles? The art style seems a little more reminiscent to Skyward Sword then Twilight Princess, but what is the true story behind Zelda U? Why has it really taken so long to release, and what is Nintendo willing to do, how far are they willing to push the envelope with the next chapter in the Zelda franchise? These are some of the questions that M. Productions ponders in one of his latest videos. Join him and a couple of guests in the discussion of “The Hope of Zelda U”

M. Productions: The Truth About Zelda Wii U

truth about zelda uIn one of the latest M. Productions videos they explored some possible reasons for Zelda Wii U having a delayed release. Through all of these remakes the developers may have been reflecting on gameplay mechanics and possibly were looking for ideas to use in Zelda U, through the tweaks that they made to those remakes. The game has been guessed to be undergoing massive changes and this may be why they have been unable to show anymore footage. They may have felt that the footage would be too different from the final product. Nintendo wants Zelda to evolve and to do this they need more time than they had anticipated.

Aonuma Briefly Talks About 30th Anniversary And Zelda U

zelda_wii_u_eiji_aonumaYesterday Famitsu magazine teased us with an upcoming interview with Eiji Aonuma and a few others where they sit down to talk about Tri Force Heroes, a brief discussion about the Zelda franchise’s 30th Anniversary, and the upcoming Zelda title for the Wii U. The moment many of us heard the news our minds started to wander about what the “brief” conversation about Zelda U would be about! We all know that the Zelda Symphony is continuing next year with new songs from Tri Force Heroes, that the 30th Anniversary of the Zelda series is next year, and that Zelda U is also slated for release as well. But I think most of us would like some more concrete information, like an actual name for the game and an actual release date too! Alas it seems as if both of these desires might continue to elude us as Nintendo continues to hold this information very close to the belt. In a small excerpt from the interview Aonuma did ask for our faith and patience in reference to Zelda U, which I believe most of us Zelda fans will continue to grudgingly have.

“We’re doing our best. Everyday we improve it bit by bit. It is something that requires plenty of time, however, so please believe in us and wait.”

Head on past the break to see what else he had to say.

HMK: Zelda Wii U Delayed Because of Graphics?

zelda u hmk graphics In one of HMK’s recent videos, he has speculated that the reason for the Zelda U delay could be that Nintendo changed the graphics for the title. Nintendo would most likely not have changed the style and HMK does not think that they will change it, however the idea was explored. It was mentioned that it could have been the reason that Zelda U was not shown at E3 2015 even though they said that they had footage. They would not have been able to show said footage as it would not look like the finished game.

Never Before Seen Link Render Confirms Twilight Princess HD?

IMG_2678 Nintendo has changed its layout in video game retail stores to have 3DS and Wii U sections merged into one complete Nintendo section. As part of this process, it has sent banners with iconic Nintendo characters on them to be displayed above the new sections– one character being Link. This render of Link is not from any existing Zelda game, which begs the question, where does he come from? Nintendo isn’t likely to make a new model just for a banner, so is this Link official art from Zelda Wii U or possibly a confirmation of Twilight Princess HD?

Take a look at the new Link and watch Youtube’s HMK discuss the unique characteristics of and possible explanations for this model after the jump!

Zelda U on the NX?

the-legend-of-zelda-wii-u thumbnailWith all of the discussion regarding The Legend of Zelda for Wii U many fans have been speculating release dates and how those dates could affect the title. With the original game release planned for 2015, it could now release in early 2016 or possibly an even later date. Due to the title being pushed past its original 2015 release date it has been speculated that it could release on the NX alongside the Wii U version. If Zelda U were to be on the NX it would most likely mean that the GamePad functionality would be toned down, with the NX version of the title being more visually appealing due to a higher frame rate. Although the NX version of Zelda U would have its perks, those who have already purchased a Wii U may be disappointed as we have not yet received an original story Zelda title for the Wii U. A dual release is currently not confirmed by Nintendo, however the idea is logical. Twilight Princess was released on both the GameCube and Wii due to its late release date in the GameCube’s lifespan. The delay has provoked the thought in fans minds that Zelda U should be on the NX.

Could We See a Release Date for Zelda Wii U Soon?

the-legend-of-zelda-wii-uAccording to some speculation from the folks over on Master Herald we might be getting the release date to Zelda Wii U very soon.

The article also touches upon the ways the game might be seen negatively from fans. In that the mix of hype and constant delays might let fans down or only prepare them for disappointment when the game is eventually released.
