Okay, serious question here people. Am I the only one that is seeing Nintendo already gearing up for the NX? Last week we received the unfortunate news that the release date for Star Fox Zero on the Wii U will be delayed until 2016. We also uncovered the identity of Nintendo's new president, Tatsumi Kimishima. A busy week for the company, no doubt.

But with the NX having been teased this year and that both The Legend of Zelda Wii U and Star Fox Zero have been delayed until 2016, seems almost planned! Nintendo don't want to repeat the mistakes of the past with the Wii U. Think about it, if Nintendo were to release two of their most coveted franchises of all time in the same year and on a new console - CASH MONEY!

Could The Legend of Zelda Get A Release Date on the NX Instead of The Wii U?

Now, this game has been in development for years, and not to mention that we've seen it running on the Wii U, with the Wii U controller in-hand. It MUST be getting a release date on the console that Nintendo said it would be. However, as a business strategy, it would make such remarkable sense to have a title like The Legend of Zelda launch your new console. It would certainly be a more profitable initiation when compared with the Wii U!

In fact, it's interesting that Tatsumi Kimishima has actually spoken about the fact that the Wii U was far too similar a console to the Wii. He's going to want to ensure that the NX is a console worth buying, with titles that Nintendo fans will really want to engage with! It'll be interesting to see how he handles this exciting time in the company's history, and I'm interested in hearing your take on it!

How Zelda Wii U Should look On the NX!

If you've yet to see Kakariko Village running in Unreal Engine then you need to get on this video immediately - and I thought the previous Unreal Zelda video was impressive! But we're wondering what exactly Nintendo's next console is going to be able to handle. Could we see games running as beautifully as this? Are they at all interested in having graphics this good, or is the company developing a completely crazy new way to interact with this medium?

SO BEAUTIFUL! But please do let us know what you think about the NX, Star Fox Zero and The Legend of Zelda Wii U getting a delayed release date, and how beautiful Zelda looks in Unreal Engine!
