The long-awaited sequel to Project X Zone has sadly been delayed until early 2016 in Europe. I’m not entirely sure what this means for those of you in the United States as the game might be delayed there too. I will update the post once I hear something. With the bad news out-of-the-way, Bandai Namco has released a brand new action-packed trailer for Project X Zone 2 which you can watch, below.
It has been no surprise that the Minecraft-esque, indie title Terraria would be heading to Nintendo platforms — in fact, it was confirmed by the developers themselves. However, for those who follow the recent listings of the ESRB (i.e., only gaming journalism blogs), you may have noticed that the new rating Terraria is lacking one thing: the Nintendo 3DS version. In the ESRB rating (seen below), there is only mention of a Wii U and Vita (retail) version:
This is by no means the end of days — there was never an official release date, so this may have been the plan all along (if it is simply a tiered launch timeline). Either way, which system do you hope to pick Terraria up on?
We’ve already heard that The Legend of Zelda Wii U most likely won’t be coming out this year. Now we’ve heard that the game won’t be shown at this year’s E3, which is a rather surprising development. The news was posted by The Legend of Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma on Miiverse. Let’s hope it’s still coming to the Wii U and not being developed for Nintendo’s next console, the NX.
As I said in the video, we would like to take this time so we can bring you a very special experience, by making the ultimate Zelda game. Since we’d like to focus on developing the game we’ve decided to not show the game at this year’s E3. Thank you for your continued support, and I hope you’ll look forward to the game!
Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has announced in a video that The Legend of Zelda Wii U will no longer be released this year as the company had previously stated. Presumably the long-awaited game will come out some time in 2016. Aonuma says that with such an expansive universe comes new ideas so they’ve decided to push it back Let’s hope it’s still on track for Wii U.
Thanks to everyone who sent this in.
Oh dear! It now seems that Walmart is delaying some people’s pre-orders of the limited edition Gold Mario amiibo. We already know that the retailer has said that additional stock is rather scarce, but we didn’t know that some of your pre-orders are being delayed. The Gold Mario amiibo is due to be released on March 20th, but some people have received an email from Walmart saying that they won’t get theirs until April 13th.
Thank you for your Walmart.com preorder. The release date of the item(s) listed below has been delayed. The revised arrival date is shown below.
We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Please note that Walmart does not control this release date, which is set by the manufacturer.
Project CARS looks like a gorgeous racer, but sadly Bandai Namco and Simply Mad Studios have announced that the game has been delayed yet again. The racing simulator is now scheduled to launch in April on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, but oddly the Wii U version hasn’t been mentioned by the company. Whether it’s coming at a later date or the same date remains to be seen.
“Moving a release date was not an easy decision to make, as we know our fans are eager to get their hands-on on Project CARS,” studio head Ian Bell. “But we know that these extra days will allow us to provide the best game experience that our fans deserve. We assure you the wait will be worth it when the game does arrive early April.”
NeoGAF forums members are reporting that they’ve received emails from Amazon UK and ShopTo informing them that the Nintendo GameCube Controller Super Smash Bros Edition is being delayed until sometime next week. It appears as though it’s just the controller, not the actual game, that’s the issue. Sounds like Nintendo UK didn’t correctly estimate demand for the controller.
