Nintendo has confirmed that the latest Legend of Zelda is pushed back to 2017 and is also coming to NX, but has now gone a step further in outlining the game for its E3 plans. We say plans - The Legend of Zelda on Wii U is going to be the only playable Nintendo game at the LA extravaganza.
The following is from Nintendo of Europe's press release:
E3: Nintendo changes its approach to the show every year. This June, Nintendo will focus its attentions on the upcoming game in The Legend of Zelda series. The Wii U version of the game will be playable for the first time on the E3 show floor, and it will be the only playable game Nintendo presents at the show, in order to provide attendees a complete immersion. Additional information about Nintendo's E3 plans will be announced in the future.
We're not sure this will be interpreted positively by many people. With E3 typically being a showcase for a number of games of varying types, Nintendo's decision to focus solely on the new Legend of Zelda game is rather remarkable. The company has shaken up the E3 formula successfully in the past two years, of course, but it'll be interesting to see how this is received.
What do you think of this news, and does it make you more or less excited for E3? Let us know in the comments.
