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!

Here’s Ten Minutes Of Rodea The Sky Soldier Gameplay

Rodea the Sky Soldier is pretty much ready to be released in Japan so it’s always nice to get some more footage of the game in action. The Wii U footage comes courtesy of 4Gamer and includes Rodea taking on some colossal battles and it also showcases the game’s flying system, which is reminiscent of Nights on the Sega Saturn. We’ve got to wait till the fall for the game to come to the west.

Thanks, JapanGamer

Rumour: Grand Theft Auto V Was Prototyped For Wii U

We all wanted Grand Theft Auto V on Wii U, but sadly RockStar never delivered. Liam Robertson from Unseen64 says that the company did have a brief prototype up and running for the Wii U but scrapped it in the end. This was possibly due to the small user base that the console had at the time. Details are rather scarce as you would expect, but it’s interesting news none the less.

Nintendo President Says Exchange Rates Are Preventing A Wii U Price Cut

Many of you are probably wondering why we haven’t had a Wii U price cut in recent times due to the relatively sluggish sales of the console. Well, you will be interested to know that Nintendo president Satoru Iwata blames exchange rates as the reason why there has been a lack of official discounts on the Nintendo’s latest home console.

“I think, to be honest, we were in a difficult situation,” said Iwata. “Because for the home console our biggest market opportunity was in the overseas markets in the U.S. and Europe, but because of the valuation of the yen and the exchange rates into dollars and euro, it made it a difficult proposition for us to capitalize on that, because of the cost that we were forced to sell the system at.”
