Supposed Leaks Point to Legend of Zelda on the NX This Winter

Supposed Leaks Point to Legend of Zelda on the NX This Winter

All right, people. This weekend we got hit with a lot of new Wii U rumors; they’re all over the place. They range from credible and likely to daft and utterly unbelievable. As many of the more talked-about rumors have been sourced to a random post on 4chan, we’re going to let those lie. There was one tidbit, though, that seems very likely to be true, and it comes from NeoGAF user Trevelyan9999 . I was following a thread for a while where he claimed to have information he wanted to discuss, but he was patiently waiting for mods to approve the info, and for an anonymous source within Nintendo to confirm the information. I eventually lost interest, but it seems the info finally went through. The info apparently comes from “an internal US marketing budget and scheduling overview for 2016,” and this is what was shared:

Spring to Early Summer

  • Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games

  • Nintendo Selects Wave 1

  • Hyrule Warriors: Legends

  • Disney Art Academy

  • Bravely Second: End Layer

  • Code Name: “Caviar F” (a smaller budget game for all ages)

  • Metroid Prime: Federation Force


  • Code Name: “Torte City” (a big budget game for all ages)

  • Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past

  • Code Name: “Cadillac” (a smaller budget game for all ages / late summer)

Fall to Holiday

  • 3DS Hardware price cut

  • Code Name: “N-Stars” (a big budget game for all ages)

  • Nintendo Selects Wave 2

  • Code Name: “DMW2” (possibly Disney Magical World 2 )

  • Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King

  • Pokémon 20th Anniversary Game “Niji”

That last tidbit has been confirmed by the latest Nintendo Direct, as codename “Niji” turned out to be Pokemon Sun / Moon. The leak also revealed that The Legend of Zelda would be a launch title for the NX, as well as the last big release for the Wii U. Thinking back to Twilight Princess and how it was developed simultaneously for the Gamecube and the Wii, this doesn’t seem far-fetched at all. We’ll keep you updated.
