41skywakeSun 29th Mar 2015 For this delay to have something to do with the NX all of these things have to be true: 1. The NX is replacing the Wii U, this is the first and biggest hurdle IMO 2. The Zelda delay has to be significant. Not just slipping to early 2016 but maybe a full year 3. The NX has to launch earlier than people are expecting, it would be a new start right when the PS4 is at its peak 4. Nintendo's executives (who are fairly cautious, look how long they waited for mobile) would have to agree to all this My guess is that the theory fails at the first hurdle and even if it doesn't it'll fail at the second. Also I think this NX theorising and press is potentially doing Nintendo and the Wii U in particular some damage. You would think they'd try to clear it up sooner rather than later. That said, maybe they're ok with screwing over the Wii U a bit if it means people are still buying the New 3DS? We're really just speculating here, we don't know what cards they're holding. But is this news the end of the Wii U? Because all of sudden there's less interesting content for 2015. Well what games for the 3DS are there going to be in the second half of this year? We have Zelda in 2016 for the Wii U now which weakens the Wii U for 2015, for sure, but where's the equivalent stack of 2015 3DS titles? If the NX is soon then some titles will be pushed back for the NX launch. But which of their two platforms is losing more titles do you think? The one with Fire Emblem or the one with Xenoblade, Splatoon, Yoshi, Zelda, Starfox and Mario Maker? Everyone is jumping up and down over just Zelda. Selective hearing I think. Have we forgotten the complaining about how the 3DS is being "neglected" to "prop-up" the Wii U? That's not a new thing. GBA/SNES VC? NES Remix? Mario Maker? If you want to read into things then there's a lot more evidence there for the 3DS' death.
