Zelda Wii U Confirmed for NX, Will Release in March 2017
Early this morning in Japan, Nintendo had their annual financial conference call. The yearly meeting details the company’s profits as well as keeping investors and stockholders aware of what the company has coming up. Firstly, and the most anticipated announcement was the release of Nintendo’s upcoming system, tentatively called the NX, will not be releasing in 2016 as many rumors have indicated. Instead the console will be releasing Worldwide in March 2017.

Unfortunately due to the fact that the release date is 11-months away, E3 will not have any Nintendo NX information. Instead that information will be released closer to the end of the year. Which leads to the second major announcement, the Zelda title slated for release on the Wii U has been confirmed as being in development for the NX as well. The game will be shipping in 2017 likely to coincide with the NX’s release. Despite the later release, Nintendo are planning to have a large blowout of information about the title at this year’s E3.
