The folks at IGN have recently posed the question Should Skyward Sword Jump to Wii 2?. All the news and rumors on the upcoming console from Nintendo brought up plenty of past memories of Twilight Princess’ delay to the Wii. The rumors surrounding the nicknamed Project Cafe state that it is due out in the first half of 2012, shortly after the accepted release of Skyward Sword this coming fall. With the release dates so close together some fans are now questioning should Nintendo wait just a while longer so we can have Skyward Sword on a more powerful system?
The article goes on to describe the release of Twilight Princess and while it was basically a port, waiting to release it with the launch of the Wii had a huge impact upon the success of the system. Perhaps the same treatment could be done for Skyward Sword so that players could have an even greater experience including HD. Near the end of the post a poll was included to the readers to see if they agree or disagree with a potential jump to Wii 2.
I have to say after hearing all the news about Project Cafe over the last few weeks I never gave this much thought. I was a little too excited to play Skyward Sword to consider waiting longer for it. Although the thought of having to wait a few more months for an even better Skyward Sword in HD on a more powerful system definitely has me interested. Not to mention the extra development time will give the people at Nintendo a little more time to take care of everything and make sure the game is great.
So what do you think? Should Nintendo wait and release Skyward Sword for the Wii’s future replacement? Let us know in the comments below.
