wiiu news?
the system is on the verge of being extinct.
Do you remember that promised franchise title, Zelda? Well it's not even close to being released.

Great system.....30 years from now I'm sure there will be a documentary about thousands of WiiU being found in a Mexico landfill

@xolivierx: Zelda is coming for the 30th anniversary, Zelda always gets pushed back, this was expected.

@xolivierx: That guy left for IGN, I think. Last time I went there was for the Splatoon review and I saw him in the comments.

Can't blame him, we're like maybe a dozen Nintendo fans on this website. Not exactly the best place to talk about Nintendo games.

@xolivierx: Zelda U is being turned into an NX game. Nintendo being Nintendo are trying to be coy about it, but we all know better.

@Simulator_Shock: of course Zelda Es going NX, tho Miyamoto swore it's coming for Wii u, so probably it's coming next year for both consoles, kinda like TP was for GC and Wii.

@Simulator_Shock : this was the last time they get me.
What I personally expect from a Nintendo console :

a great Mario title(and by that I mean something like Mario 64)
Mario Kart


so far there is only Mario Kart and they succeeded at screwing up the battle mode by putting actual tracks instead of arenas.

The console is solely for die hard fans of some jrps, Mario games and Smash bros.

@xolivierx: And Kirby, Pikmin, Captain Toad, Bayonetta, Donkey Kong, Wonderful 101, Mario Maker, 3D World, Yoshi, and many more. Dont let that hate blind you mate.
