The release date for The Legend of Zelda has been pushed back to 2017, new rumors suggest, given that the title was not included in Nintendo’s release schedule for 2016.
Producer Eiji Aonuma revealed to Engadget that releasing the game is not a top priority for developers at the moment because they want to focus their energies on making it as close to perfect as possible.
The Wii U version of the next Legend of Zelda title is said to include “far more options” for gating progress.
“From what we’ve seen of the game, Hyrule is a physical landmass, not an ocean.
This naturally gives Nintendo far more options for gating progress in ways that don’t feel as artificial as an item requirement,” Gamespot reports.
Speculation suggesting the release of a Legend of Zelda “Twilight Princess” Wii U and 3DS remake have been dispelled.
The speculation began when a Twitter user mentioned that they Streetpassed another person at the ZeldaSymphony concert who was playing the title on the 3DS.
In response, another Twitter user was found to have posted an image on his timeline three days prior to the anticipated leak of “Twilight Princess,” confirming that it was a hack, the Inquisitr reports.
Despite this, support remains for planning a release of the game, mainly because of the possibility of improved graphics.
YouTube user Zeltik has posted a remastered version of The Legend of Zelda gameplay trailer footage shown at the recent Game Awards, which includes external audio files.
