Nintendo Wii U

GameStop Italy Stores Listing Zelda Wii U With A Spring Release Date

zelda_wii_u_gamestop_italy_spring

Perhaps GameStop Italy are privy to more information than the rest of us as they have started advertising The Legend of Zelda Wii U with a spring release date. The date appears to be plucked out of nowhere as a spring release date hasn’t been mentioned by Nintendo and seems a little too soon. Still, GameStop Italy are listing the game for release this spring which doesn’t make too much sense at present.

  1. Is that the actual box art? Also i expect it to be released after E3 along with Star Fox but it would be nice if it got released in the spring.

    1. Why would nintendo have to wait for E3? If it’s done before that (which I doubt, but still) they could feature it in a couple nintendo directs, as usual, and then release it… I think hey’ve proven by now that they don’t have to rely on E3.

      But so far very little material has surfaced so it’s probably safe to say that the release is still several months off anyway… spring sounds too good to be true.

      1. There are way more people who attend/ watch streams of e3, than there are people who watch the direct. Nintendo has got to get their games out into the public & change their brand name- and the Directs, albeit: interesting and nice to have as a Nintendo fan, don’t really get Nintendo’s name out there. [Only] Nintendo fans watch them.

        On another topic: I am glad Nintendo announces new games in their Directs. They’re keeping Nintendo’s name at the top of gaming website’s headlines by announcing new stuff like Majora’s Mask, Fire Emblem 3ds, and Xenoblade.

      2. Well.. as soon as Nintendo announces something important in an ND it’s usually all over the media, so people would then watch it.
        According to Nintendo up to a million people watch the Nintendo directs per week.

        I don’t doubt that Nintendo will present it at E3, I just doubt that they have to rely on E3 to market Zelda Wii U to an audience.

      3. That’s of no relevance to what I said.
        I said said that I don’t see the E3 as being a reason to delay the release of an important game for Nintendo.

        Besides they’ve been showing games that had already been released on E3 in the past.

      4. This game looks stupid, they should cancel it immediately, no one will buy and play this stupid game, Nintendo is stupid now, nobody likes them anymore.

      5. So, why are you reading this article if your obviously biased against Nintendo. Even your username says “SonyPs4”, so we all know your a PS4 fan, not a Nintendo fan.

    2. This is clearly an unrealistic time frame, I mean, Starfox is releasing before Zelda and if they release all of their major games before Summer, then what will they release for Wii U for the Holiday season…

    1. My interpretation of Frutaay’s comment-
      “Everybody’s dumb if her/he thinks this will be at E3…people say so, but the gameplay was empty because it is in development!! What if they want it to be kind of empty to feel like…” I don’t get the last part…
      I hope that this helps anybody that may be confused…

  3. Highly unlikely. I can almost guarantee that Zelda U will launch November 20th, 2015. That’s the Friday before Black Friday, and in the past few years Nintendo has released a bunch of big name titles exactly a week before Black Friday. Skyward Sword, Super Mario 3D World, A Link Between Worlds, and Super Smash Bros for Wii U in 2011, 2013, 2013, and 2014, respectively. It makes perfect sense then that Zelda U will be around that time for 2015.

    Like

    1. They generally release a big game mid year(NA) too,
      Pokemon Black and White(2011),
      Xenoblade Chronicles and Mario Party 9(Although was March) (2012)
      DKC returns 3D, Animal Crossing: New leaf and Pikmin 3(2013)
      MK8 and Kirby’s Triple Deluxe(2014)
      Now while these are No LoZ (Other than Pokemon) they are still BIG Nintendo 1st party/second party releases, These are probably closer to Starfox hyped games, in a recent direct however LoZ Wii-U was said to come soon after Starfox U as they were at similar stages of development.
      I would still agree that LoZ U will be after E3 and will probably release around September like Pokemon Z(This could also be november however since Pokemon ORAS was) likely will, They would want the game to be out a while before Black Friday so that people will buy it knowing about the game.

      1. This year, it’s going to be Splatoon. They have put a lot of eggs in this Splatoon basket, I just hope that it works out for them…

    1. Name any box art actually better, really, its good by comparison of ocarina of time, or really sny american box art. Most the time its just link with a gold background. Plus, where is the Subtitle?

    2. Indeed, that’s just the close up image from the E3 trailer, so I highly doubt that this will be the final boxart…I hope…

  4. I still don’t really believe this. According to Miyamoto, Starfox is supposed to be released before Zelda U. However, he has already stated that Starfox will be playable at E3, which in turn would mean that Starfox and subsequently Zelda U will be released sometime after E3.

    1. It doesn’t necessarily have to be released after e3 to be playable at e3. Star fox and Zelda right after could technically both be released in the spring and then still be playable at e3 as miyamoto San said

  5. It would be smart to release as soon as done and not wait a full year until fucking christmas if they want more people to buy a Wii U before the Christmas competition shows up. But Nintendo PR cannot be trusted. Especially when they don’t clear up these rumours.

  6. as an italian i can tell you that it’s total bs.
    they’re very well known for putting out dates without having a clue.
    i.e. after the new 3ds was announced last year, they put out “december 19th” as a release date.
    so don’t get your hopes up.

  7. I’m pretty sure Nintendo had an info graphic that said it was coming out the second half of 2015 which would put it in either the Fall or Winter for a release date.

    Plus, when you think that Star Fox is coming out “before” Zelda for Wii U, it wouldn’t make sense to release Zelda in the Spring, because then they would have two huge franchise releases so close to one another, maybe only a month or two apart (In the spring…). Then what is supposed to be released for this holiday season???

  8. that can’t be true.
    Last year at the game awards nintendo said, that star fox will come out before the legend of zelda and star fox will first be playable at e3 this year as the stated in the direct in january.

  9. Wether it does come out this Spring in Italy or not that box art is so bad I would rather use eShop than see that everytime I play.

    I know it’s a placeholder but can’t they use a better design graphics?

  10. There’s no way It’s coming out before October. Idk why they’re advertising it as a Spring title, but there’s just no way. Especially since they already said that StarFox Wii U is coming out before Zelda U and we haven’t heard anything about THAT yet either.

  11. This is likely wrong. They said Star Fox would come out first and that doesn’t have a release date yet. I expect it won’t come out till after E3.

  15. Nope…its fall after StarFox which I am guessing as September, this is the same source that said Watch Dogs was cancelled on the Wii U.

  16. This will definitely be a November release. Because Nintendo always waits too long to release the GOOD games. And with the Christmas season, they know a lot of idiots will be buying lots of crap for many ungrateful brats and jerks. Not hating on Zelda. I’m hating on Christmas, and Nintendo making people wait their lives away.
