Zelda Wii U Won’t Be At This Year’s E3

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!

Thanks, WhiteEagle

Project CARS Has Been Delayed Again It’s Now Coming In April And Wii U Not Mentioned

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.”

Thanks, Jester

 

 

GameCube Controller Super Smash Bros Edition Apparently Facing Delay In The UK

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.

Thanks, Kyle

Oddworld Wii U Has Been Delayed Due To The Basic Wii U Model

Oddworld series creator Lorne Lanning has explained that they have decided to delay the Wii U version of the game due to the 8GB basic model. Lanning says that if developers are going to make a Wii U title then they need to be able to get it up and running on the 8GB model.

“If you’re going to make a Wii U game, it better run on the 8GB unit. Otherwise, it’s not really a Wii U game.”
