The upcoming Legend of Zelda and Metroid remain some of the highly anticipated Nintendo Wii U games. In a recent interview, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Nintendo of America, Scott Moffitt, reconfirmed the release dates of the said games.
Speaking with iDigitalTimes; Moffitt stated that the studio is hard at work developing the Legend of Zelda and wishes to release a game that fans have been waiting for and deserve:
We confirmed that a Zelda game, a new Zelda experience is in development for the Wii U and we have our team hard at work on that,” Moffitt said. “We want that to be the best Zelda experience. Fans have been waiting for and deserve a game when it’s ready, when it’s fully featured and when it can live up to what we would like to deliver.
We already know that the Legend of Zelda is scheduled to arrive sometime during 2016, but Metroid for Wii U seems like another story, as narrated by Moffitt:
Metroid is really up to our game developers to decide how best to create new and different experiences. This Metroid experience [Federation Force] offers a local multiplayer feature that could be a lot of fun for game fans and we hope fans try it out and come to their own conclusions,” Moffitt said. “I have nothing more to announce about a Metroid game for Wii U but let’s be happy for what we have. We’ve got something and let’s experience it and hope fans will enjoy.
We recently discussed whether or not Nintendo is deliberately delaying the Legend of Zelda for the upcoming console codenamed Nintendo NX. To read up more and share your views, head over to the post!
