I would be happy with one mainline Zelda game per decade. (Use the other games to experiment with what doesn't but without the Zelda name attached).

I hate how everyone assumes they know what the NX is. Ninty has said almost nothing about it, and yet people seem to have come up with its release date, what it is, and whatnot.

Anyways, like Aonuma said, they delayed Zelda because they were almost done, were playing around with it, and found they could put new ideas into it. That's that. And they said they weren't making a 2015 release a priority, meaning if they finish it in time, they'll release it, but they won't rush it out the door if they don't. That was basically all that was said, so I throw up in my mouth for every 'Zelda delayed till 2017' or 'Zelda delayed for NX' article I read.

Ask yourself, why elect to not show a game at E3 that the public has seen twice if you're not making massive changes?

Because they want to focus on more imminent releases and it's not 2003 anymore. They can push out a lot of hype closer to release through Nintendo Directs and other kinds of marketing. Not everything has to build directly out of E3 anymore. Hell, look at what they've done with Splatoon recently. Or the fact that the Majora's Mask remake was announced a good few months after E3 and released a good few months before the next one.

They are focusing on this year because there is no next year for WiiU. Basically every title of note that will release this year for the console will be published by Nintendo. The fat lady is singing. You always preview your software for the next year (especially when your platform's future is in doubt) except when you're launching a new console, and especially when you're designing something new that the competition could easily copy if they knew you were taking that direction (gaze and head tracking).

Nintendo fans shouldn't get upset that Nintendo is pushing forward with a new platform-- they should get excited that Nintendo is going back to ground level to fix their software support issues. Nintendo is investing hugely in NX and part of that investment is to rectify how badly they screwed things up for their devoted fans with WiiU's design (leaving owners with massive droughts and few third party titles).

Cutting the Wii U lifespan short and rushing our new hardware will fix their software problems? How? 3rd Parties aren't going to want to develop for the next Nintendo Console if Nintendo is just going to start cutting and running with their systems. Releasing a new system won't fix Nintendo's core problem, their image. Continuing with the Wii U and releasing games like Splatoon, Zelda U, and Star Fox will help. Nintendo is focusing on the big games coming this year because it is pointless to focus on the big games coming next year, they will do that next year.

Please tell me what releasing a console late 2016 will do to increase Nintendo's consumer image? Exactly what you expect a new console to do for Nintendo.
EDIT: Did see you made a new topic about that. we can just continue this conversation there.

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

Nintendo actually showed off more 2015 games than 2014 games last year, just saying. And they have to have some amount of 2016 games to show off because they need to promote the lineup for Spring. But this year is a different scenario from last year. It's a "harvest year" as Sony calls it, there's a ton of games that we've known about since last year that are releasing this year and they still need to promote those. That's probably the reason 2015 is getting focus, not because there's nothing to show off but because they have so much to get through first for 2015 that they want to save some of the later 2016 games for next year.

The WiiU is fairly new and I doubt it will be beyond Twilight Princess or that other Zelda game in the sky.
