We believe

Nintendo's latest financial results have been published, with a generally mixed outcome, and its usual reports for the nine month period have included some interesting information. As always there's an updated release line-up, too, which on this occasion mostly keeps its powder dry. The one change that's immediately apparent relates to...

Eiji Aonuma on the Idea of Giving Link a Voice

Actions speak louder than words

Link has always been a silent protagonist in the Zelda games and there has always been debate about giving him a real voice. On one hand, the character acts as a sort of avatar for the gamer, an empty vessel that allows one to assume the role of the hero and be that much more immersed in the adventure. On the other...

Neat tag for this game. Yes this is awesome and does have.... swords (heh, duh). I can't wait for this. I can't find a word to describe my immeasurable excitement for this. New gameplay and strong visuals makes this worth being impatient for!

This is going to be SIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIICK!! By the end of 2014, the Wii U will be the best console in existence! Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101, FRICKEN SMASH BROOOOS BABY, Wind Waker HD, Yarn Yoshi, Nintendo Land, Mario Kart 8, X... I swear I could go on forever!



ammar003 said:

I have to get this but why 2015 why not this year but I hope its as good as skyword sword



epicdude12302 said:

I hope the release date gets pushed back to 2014 but Nintendo has a habit of seperating new games in a series by 2 or 3 years. Example: Mariokart 7: 2011, Mariokart 8: 2014. Zelda Skyward Sword: 2011, Zelda ALBW: 2013.

I just want them to take as long as they need.

God I love Shigeru Miyamoto.



Gressil said:

Lol this game better not suck as much as Skyward Sword. Nintendo had better pull their heads out their asses. Console Zeldas have been trash since after Windwaker.



MarioFan1985 said:

@Gressil I thought Twilight Princess was quite good. But Skyward Sword was quite disappointing. It had a lot of dull colors and the graphics were a bit grainy as well, plus Link was a Righty (unfortunately it looks like he'll be a Righty again in this one, despite in Super Smash Bros and Hyrule Warriors where he's back being a Lefty).

Just cause link shot the now that way doesn't mean any thing. His domanant eye is his right eye. He could still be a leftie. I prefer right hand though



chaosreaper27 said:

Zelda game as big as skyrim and hd it dont matter the longer they take the better. just sayin Sony,Microsoft, good luck topping this game. they have 3rd gen consoles Nintendo still has a 2.5 gen lol



Sac999 said:

I think zelda wii u 2015 will be really awsome I played all the games this one will be the best so fare in my opinion.



Ron1212 said:

Yes. Just yes. When I insert the disc into the system, I promise to come back here and reply to this comment.



Wolfgamer478 said:

Does anyone know if this game is for sure going to be on the Wii U? Or are they going to move it to a newer system because of the delay?



ShanaUnite said:

Why is this game listed under E3 2015 games? I thought Legend of zelda U would skip a year?



ottospooky said:

I thought it's been announced this game is a no show this year. Am I wrong about that?



andrea987 said:

@ShanaUnite @ottospooky @KodyDawg I'd say there is a strong chance it will manifest itself at E3, in one form or another, regardless of what they said. It's one of the most wanted for Wii U, and it could very much help the WiiU case, so it wouldn't make much sense not showing it at all. Maybe not in the digital event, but...



Wolfgamer478 said:

I wonder how many people are going to get the game then somehow break it in the process of putting it in the system .-.



Kylo_Ren said:

2016, and hopefully we finally get Zelda U.
It will probably be on both Wii U and NX, which will be great, this could be GotY. The long wait is nearly over guys!
