Nintendo NX and Zelda


Nintendo has been very good about keeping the lid on their NX console. The Next generation in Nintendo Gaming. At this point we have hear a lot of rumors about a 2016 release but nothing truly concrete. However SuperMetaldave64 appears to have gotten an exclusive scoop from a Nintendo employee.

The information has been verified through another individual, a NeoGaf moderator, making this information very likely to be true.

According to the Nintendo source, the Nintendo NX is ‘definitely’ releasing in 2016, with the long delayed The Legend of Zelda for Wii U as a launch title. Even though Zelda is moving to the NX, a Wii U version of the game will still release.

“I can confirm 100 that the Nintendo NX is definitely launching in 2016 and Zelda NX will be a launch window release. So, it will either launch on the NX or shortly after the release of the NX.”

“Either way Nintendo is trying to release Zelda U and Zelda NX at the same time period for the holiday season in 2016. Also no other launch games were revealed to me for the NX at this time but the source informed me that they will confirm more information, if possible, in the future.”

So we are looking to a 2016 release on the NX and the much awaited Zelda U. While we are getting this information for Nintendo, we still must wait for the official announcement before we really get our hopes high.
