The Legend of Zelda looks ready for release on the Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo NX this holiday. Fans expect that Nintendo might show off the title at E3 2016. Recently, The Legend Of Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma revealed some updates on the upcoming game. In his interview with a Japanese magazine, he said that the game is now in shape and is progressing.
The rumor mill suggests that what is known as Legend of Zelda Wii U will be launched along with the Nintendo NX, which is expected to arrive during the Christmas week this year. The legend of Zelda game will probably hit Nintendo NX along with the Nintendo Wii U. However, with NX?s hardware capabilities at a much higher level than the Wii U, we can safely assume that the game is being scaled up for the NX rather than down for the Wii U.
In his interview with Famitsu (via Kotaku), Aonuma noted that the franchise is going to introduce some big changes in The Legend of Zelda. According to him, this change is similar to shifting from Japanese food to Western fare. Aonuma expressed his hopes about the changes, saying that perhaps, The Legend Of Zelda might surprise the players.
?Please look forward to it, because I think we?ll be able to make ?something new? like Ocarina of Time was,? said Aonuma in the interview.
We know that The Legend Of Zelda will be stronger and more powerful than previous titles of the series, but the Nintendo NX capabilities will be higher than the Wii U. It is safe to assume that The Legend Of Zelda may use the new features available on the Nintendo NX.
According to a report by Fortune, Nintendo has increased its sales estimate for Wii U by 17 percent and the Wii U games by 75 percent this year. This change has been made due to the release of the new Legend of Zelda game. It won?t be a surprise if the expected Legend of Zelda Wii U arrives on Nintendo NX. Those who remember the Twilight Princess game in the Zelda series might recall that the title was planned to be released on the GameCube, but it was also launched for the Wii.
