One game that we are all anxiously waiting for is the gorgeous Legend of Zelda Wii U. The game was scheduled to launch on the Wii U later this year, but was suddenly pushed back to 2016 and wasn’t showcased at E3. This led many people to believe that it was being moved to the Nintendo NX. iDigitalTimes sat down with Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of sales and marketing, Scott Moffitt who said that the game will be ready to be released when it can deliver on the developers ideas.
“We confirmed that a Zelda game, a new Zelda experience is in development for the Wii U and we have our team hard at work on that,” Moffitt said. “We want that to be the best Zelda experience. Fans have been waiting for and deserve a game when it’s ready, when it’s fully featured and when it can live up to what we would like to deliver.”
Scott Moffitt was also questioned by the publication regarding whether we can expect a brand new Metroid Prime game for the Wii U. Moffitt says that is entirely down to the game developers. I personally suspect that if there is a new Metroid Prime title in development then it is more than likely to be on the Nintendo NX platform. But this is just pure speculation on my part. Here’s what Moffitt had to say.
“Metroid is really up to our game developers to decide how best to create new and different experiences. This Metroid experience [Federation Force] offers a local multiplayer feature that could be a lot of fun for game fans and we hope fans try it out and come to their own conclusions,” Moffitt said. “I have nothing more to announce about a Metroid game for Wii U but let’s be happy for what we have. We’ve got something and let’s experience it and hope fans will enjoy.”
