The Legend of Zelda


 

Nintendo has announced that The Legend of Zelda Wii U will no longer launch in 2016. However, it will launch simultaneously on both Wii U and Nintendo NX.

The Legend of Zelda: The latest instalment in this classic series is scheduled to launch simultaneously for both Wii U and NX, and both versions of the game have been in development in tandem,” Nintendo said in a statement. “Because developers need more time to polish the game, it will launch in 2017, but it will be the focus of Nintendo’s presence at E3.

“This June, Nintendo will focus its attentions on the upcoming game in The Legend of Zelda series,” the company added. “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.”

Nintendo confirmed in its latest financial results report that its upcoming console, codenamed NX, will launch worldwide in March 2017.
