Zelda Wii U Delayed to 2017, Releasing on Both Wii U and NX

Zelda Wii U

Nintendo has revealed that their next console will be releasing worldwide in March 2017. Nintendo also announced that the NX will be absent from this year’s E3 and will be showcased at a later event.

This year’s E3 instead will be mainly focused on the new Zelda title that is now confirmed to be coming simultaneously to both the Wii U and Nintendo NX, and will be the only playable title from Nintendo at E3. Unfortunately this also means that the Wii U version has been delayed, a third time, to 2017 after confirming a 2016 release last November.

This means the Wii U will be the first Nintendo console without it’s own exclusive Zelda title.

It’s likely we will see Zelda Wii U as a launch title for the NX as Twilight Princess was for the Wii, but will Zelda fans flock to the NX to buy the new Zelda title on there? Or will Zelda fans that already own a Wii U feel burned by the move?

It will be interesting to see what, if any, differences will be between the Wii U and NX versions of Zelda. Does this mean that the Wii U gamepad will be compatible with the NX? We will find out later this year.

Play A 2.5D Version Of The Legend Of Zelda In Your Browser

by Tarvis (6 months ago) | 3 Comments


It’s been thirty years since the Legend of Zelda was originally released on the Nintendo Entertainment System and paved the way to one of the most heralded franchises in all of gaming. Two fans made an awesome 2.5D version of the original game, called it Zelda30Tribute, and allowed everyone the right to play it free inside their browser.

It is not yet a completed project, but currently you are able to access and complete three dungeons as well as traverse most of the overworld. It is also compatible with either your PC or your mobile phone, but expect some bugs here and there. The developers are asking for people to play, test, and report any bugs they find to their Facebook page. The game played smoothly on both my PC and my iPhone, but your results may vary depending on your hardware.

We recommend giving it a shot, it’s one of the neatest remakes of the Legend of Zelda that we’ve seen.

My Nintendo and Miitomo Are Now Live

by Tarvis (6 months ago) | 2 Comments

Nintendo’s Club Nintendo replacement and Digital Rewards service, as well as Nintendo’s first foray into mobile phone gaming are finally live for us in the west.

My Nintendo is the new hub for collecting rewards by completing “missions” such as buying and playing Nintendo games, answering surveys, and more. It is also the start to a unified account management system across all Nintendo hardware and services. Currently you can collect points by creating a My Nintendo account, adding your social accounts, playing Miitomo, or purchasing downloadable games on the Wii U and 3DS.

Also as a “secret mission”, if you click on the brick block on the bottom right side of the My Nintendo page, and then click on your Mii at the top of the page, you can collect a bonus 10 coins. Sometimes there is also a platinum-coin near the coin boxes. Click on it to redeem it.

Miitomo (IOS/Play Store) is very similar to a multiplayer Tomodachi Life of sorts. You can create or import a Mii, dress them up, answer varying questions about your Mii and yourself, upload pictures, play games, and more. All of this allows you to also collect Miitomo points that are used for rewards on the My Nintendo service.
