Nintendo Says E3 Will Just Be Focussed On 2015 Games

We all heard the news yesterday that Zelda has been delayed and won’t be shown at this year’s E3 event in June. A Nintendo of America spokesperson has clarified to IGN that the company is only focussing on showing 2015 titles at E3 this year. We still don’t know if it’s going to be an E3 themed Nintendo Direct or alternatively a traditional stage conference. Anyway, here’s what the representative told the publication.

“As Mr. Aonuma announced, The Legend of Zelda game for Wii U is no longer targeted as a 2015 release. Rather than sticking to a specific schedule, the team wants to make this the most complete and the best game it can possibly be. The new launch timing has not yet been determined. Because we’d like to focus on developing the game, we aren’t planning on showing it at this year’s E3, where we will be highlighting games launching in 2015. We will let you know when we’re ready to share more specifics.”

    1. I guess this means that there will be nothing for 2016. except for Zelda. People wanted Animal Crossing, Paper Mario, Metroid, New Mario Galaxy Game, Fire Emblem, F-Zero…but I guess people will be content with anything Nintendo makes since they are just that damn pathethic at this point. When you only own Nintendo, you either have to like everything they make or buy a game every half a year. What a great company!

      5. Yeah, I don’t even have to mention how stupid it would be to do that. It would be much better if they actually had an hour and a half long E3 conference where they actually do all of the things. That makes sense, but Nintendo is just cutting corners everywhere.

      10. No, but it’s implied that it’s going to be their focus. And your focus on E3 should mostly be new games. These older ones should have a minute long gameplay video, date of release and an announcment that they’ll be playable on the show floor. That’s it. Not their primary focus. Not to mention that we already know enough about them for those games to be released. There isn’t a need to focus on X, Yoshi, Mario Maker and on whatever the fuck. Only Starfox and then new games that we haven’t seen before. But knowing Nintendo they’ll show 10 minutes of all of thoes games, announce something like a SNES Remix, maybe a few more eShop games, have a small trailer for Animal Crossing or something and that’ll come out in 2016.

Casuals are gone, kids are grown up. The only thing left are fans and fanboys. Fanboys you can please with everything, but fans….They won’t buy whatever you put on the table, and Nintendo should target them. That is why you always see a huge boom in sales when a big game comes out, but….that happens like twice a year. Not even.

        What worries me is the fact they felt the need to announce they’re releasing another console so early on. When we aren’t even in the full third year of the Wii U.

        Instead they need to be talking about what they’re going to be doing with the Wii U to make it more appealing, not another console already. It makes you feel that even they have lost complete faith in their own system.

      14. 1. I think that it is an even bigger assumption, thinking any gaming company period, delays games to extend a systems life. That sounds so ridiculous, it isn’t even funny. I’m not complaining so much about the delay itself, but this idea of yours is out there.

        The fact they felt the need to announce a new console this early on is a bit weird, don’t ya think. If they wanted to extend the Wii U’s life, why even mention another console already? Feels as if even they’ve given up on focusing on the Wii U. Yes, we all know R&D starts early, but you never see this type of behavior. People announcing a new console when their other console hasn’t even been out for a full three years.

        Extending the life of the Wii U would be as simple as giving fans what they’ve been wanting on the console since it launched. Delaying games can actually hurt the system, and I know quality is important, but at the same time people aren’t going to wait forever. As you can clearly see here, many people aren’t happy with the news of Zelda being delayed.

        2. I’m patient, so it doesn’t bother me too much. Only if this years line up is not completely barren, and there aren’t anymore delays on the other big titles we should get this year. The problem is you can’t guarantee those games are releasing this year, anymore than the people assuming there will be no games this year. You could’ve said the same thing about Zelda last year, but you would be looking foolish now.

        I do have a bad feeling we might be hearing about more delays though from Nintendo. Which isn’t anything new honestly, delays from Nintendo, but the Wii U is in a bad situation for people to be this patient with it. Nintendo botched its launch, and pushed peoples patience enough as it was.

        Just like many others around here, I haven’t played mine either in some months. :(

        So I really can’t blame anyone who is disappointed in what Nintendo has been doing lately.

  1. That means there’s nothing really to show for 3DS besides some games we already know. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, we can still learn of some new Wii U games has Nintendo usually keeps them a secret until a live broadcast. Because it’s Wii U maybe we can learn of some big games, we don’t even know much of the games already announced like Star Fox

      2. With all due respect Tetrarch that is illogical. The Wii U is a fine console and has a nice range of games out for it now and coming out for it soon. Also E3 has lost much of it’s quality and luster as it is now a place for gaming politics rather than just talking about games which Nintendo does for their directs and did excellently during the Treehouse last year. Just in their last North America Direct they teased at Project Treasure, a new game being worked on, and the new Fire Emblem game. They didn’t even use the E3 presentation to announce Star Fox , Project Giant Robot, Project Guard, or Code Name S.T.E.A.M.

        I understand everyone’s worry and all that, but we need to tone it down. The Wii U isn’t dying, on life support, or dead. It is the only console of the three that has a large library of excellent exclusives to the console that are worth owning the console for in uniqueness and actual quality. It already has a nice array of planned games for this year that we know about and definitely has a couple of surprises for us this year and some early next year.

        It’s silly to assume this is a make or break year especially after how the end of last year ended and how full this year is looking to be. Dead? No matter what? Even if the known games that are coming out are excellent the Wii U is dead? Splatoon, Mario Maker, Devil’s Third, Yoshi’s Wolly World, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Star Fox U, Lego Jurassic World, is almost a game a month for the rest of the year for the Wii U. And it’s likely to get more lesser titles and indies that I just cannot think of at the moment. And yes, I know, nothing compares to the majesty of a Nintendo game, but the Wii U has plenty of those and I’m willing to bet there will be new announcements for this year for it as well.

I game because the empire brought me in, taught me what gaming was thereby having me get a NES, SNES, Genesis, Saturn, N64, Dreamcast, Ps1-3, (begrudgingly) 360, GameCube, Wii and Wii U after my first game of Mario Bros. I’ve gone years with just getting 3-5 games that whole year tow own and rented a shit ton of games and was grateful to have that. Last gen and this gen was when I started actually getting enough games per console to actually have something of collection for a console.

        People who have run from the empire all because they need more games now fasterfasterFASTER can violate themselves in their piss pipes with their PSBox paper weights that are from companies who buy games from other companies who whore themselves out for a buck. So confident is the “AAA” industry in their games that they dare not try to compete with the empire’s works on the empire’s console. Hell Sony and Microsoft can’t get their own first party to put out a fantastic game on their consoles.

        The empire’s face is not tarnished, the cattle merely consume whatever is in front of them is all. Which is why the empire spiking the waters with Nintendo brand to clear their minds is quite the devious and much approved up tactic to mine eyes.

Also, if they have another tree house event then they could talk about what ever is coming in 2016 there rather than during the conference since they get to be more hands on and the devs can take their time talking about it over three days rather than trying to scrunch that up in about an hour.

    They can also utilize Directs to talk about what next year has to bring in small bites over this and half of next year and get back to the standard was of E3 or keep up doing new things. I don’t quite get the negative attitudes one something that isn’t verified to be bad yet. Different isn’t bad as we say during last years E3 when Nintendo hinted about Star Fox during the Robot Chicken skit while also showing they hear the voices of their fans even when they sound very very whiny.

    Their handheld is something I desire for a number of titles though and I’ve yet to get a portable gaming system so I’d probably just get that instead.

  18. Why are people so blind? They can’t finish games for the Wii U in time what makes you think they have the NX ready with a full force of games? The NX was just announced so people didn’t start talking about Nintendo going 3rd party. The NX will be out until like 2017. It will be stupid to kill the Wii U and put an 8th gen console out when Microsoft and Sony are still in the current gen. What if they just delayed Zelda because he’s telling the truth that they want to make it bigger and better and that’s it? And none of this NX killing the Wii U shit. Plus no other games are expected for these holidays other than Star Fox and Xenoblade, which means there will be new anouncements for 2015 games which means new exciting games. Is Zelda everything to you losers? ‘Cause that’s pretty sad that it’s the only thing that interests you. If Nintendo isn’t ready with Zelda U, I don’t think they are ready for anything NX. Killing the Wii U and releasing the NX while the PS5 or Xbox Two are nowhere near can make Nintendo look dumb. Plus, most games like Yoshi and Splatoon will be out before E3, which means new games will be announced at E3 for the 2015 holiday.

  19. Look on the positive side. The Iwata and Reggie tumors might be removed sometime this year. I’m sure there are some influential people that are getting tired of their incompetence.

  20. As far as Zelda being pushed back, doesn’t surprise me: OoT, MM, WW, And TP were all delayed atleast a year. More time in development is a reasonable expense for a better experience in my eyes.

    Some of ya’ll may suffer from aspd. Or you’re just young and angry.

  21. So this is the result when a company makes a product just a little bit better than what’s already in the market instead of thinking of next generation competition products. Kia just released images of a redesigned Optima. Also Kia Motors has a AWD version of the K900 coming soon and a 2017 Kia GT. The Kia GT is made to compete with the 2018 BMW 5 series not the 2015 5 Series. Kia knows by the time the 2017 Kia GT arrives BMW will have a more powerful 5 series out. Nintendo would just a t like their isn’t a 2019 5 series in BMW’s R&D and just make it more powerful than the 2015 series.

  22. Uhhh….that’s a really bad decision. This isn’t going to build any confidence in the Wii U or give any owners of the console comfort in knowing that they can look forward to games in the 2016.
    Good grief, I know Nintendo likes to keep things under wraps, but this is ridiculous, especially for a system that’s been out for 3 years….especially considering that there can’t possibly be a huge amount of games they’ve not announced that will be coming in the 2nd half of 2015.

    1. If Nintendo thought about giving the Wii HD when the Wii was in R&D, it would have Givin them nearly 10 years experience working in HD and Zelda would had come out in 2014. But was too stupid not to give Wii HD when it was in R&D. Let alone stupid thinking Wii U needed a little more power over the PS3.

  23. Wait. Where in the quote did they say “We’re only focusing on 2015 games”? All they said is that they’ll be highlighting their 2015 lineup. Plus did Nintendo ever ONLY talk about games coming in the same year as E3? I bet this isn’t the first time they said this and they ended up talking about the next year’s games. Seriously guys read the article.

    1. I hope they announce something to replace Zelda Wii U because they’re in desperate need of that. And again guys, if you read what they said in the quote like you’re SUPPOSED TO DO instead of just reading the title they didn’t say they’re ONLY focusing on 2015. This was probably just click bait. I’m saying probably because it was sickr who did the article not Alba (because if it was alba it would no that doubt be clickbait XD) But yeah seriously guys, don’t be stupid. There’s an article for a reason. There’s a quote in the article for a reason. If everyone just decided to stop reading the actually article, the only thing sickr, SSF, and alba would have to do is just make the headline… (btw fuck am i late to this article XD)

  24. Personally, I think the delay is a good thing as we live in a time where 3rd parties stop giving a shit about making quality products

    While i myself don’t care much for Zelda aside of Hyrule Warriors, The delay can be beneficial if you account the results the game provides as result of delay when it comes to Nintendo

    Gamers should calm down as we still have Star Fox, Xenoblade X, Mario Maker, Yoshi’s Wooly World and Splatoon to look forward to
    Plus, There’s 2 3DS games to support: Project Mirai DX and the Puzzle and Dragons twin pack (Puzzle & Dragons Z + Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition)

  25. I don’t understand why are the same who are upset about Zelda being delayed into 2016 are upset about Nintendo focusing on 2015 games this E3. Pretty sure they’re going to announce completely new games that will come out this year, isn’t games that come out this year what we wanted?

  26. Brief summary of Donko:
    -Cries and bitches like as if Nintendo killed his family.
    -Superiority complex
    -Complains about small things, probably cries over his milky getting spilt
    -Calls himself ”God” lol wut?
    -Only hears what he wants to hear
    -Insults you then claims he never made and insult
    -Constantly uses the strawman argument
    -In reality he always loses an argument always
