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

The performance will also highlight orchestral renditions of music from The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D and The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. Concerts will be performed by full orchestra and choir in world class venues throughout the world.

“At the nexus of culture and entertainment, the New York show at Barclays Center just makes sense for the Zelda Symphony,” said Jason Michael Paul, President of Jason Michael Paul Productions, Inc. “We want to be able to bring the ultimate Zelda experience to as many fans as possible worldwide, and with this New York show and Nintendo World store special event, we really believe we’ll be able to reach many of those fans in a city that already embraces music and games. Fans at the Nintendo World store will get treated to an ocarina demo with David Ramos, cosplay by Li Kovacs, and a live musical performance – a small taste of what awaits them at the full concert experience.”

Guests will enjoy their favorite moments from the series, carefully and beautifully timed with a gorgeous orchestral score. The concert is a festive experience for all walks of fans, many of which attend “cosplaying” as their favorite characters.
