Zelda Wii U game won’t be shown at E3 2015

legend-of-zelda-wii-u1-640x360Nintendo shocked the gaming world (and Wii U owners) yesterday by announcing that the upcoming Zelda Wii U game was delayed to 2016. Now we’ve gotten even more bad news from Nintendo.

Not only has the company delayed Zelda to next year, they won’t be showing off the game at E3 2015. A company spokesperson said that this year’s E3, which takes place in Los Angeles in June, will only focus on 2015 Wii U and 3DS games.

Here’s what Nintendo told IGN about showcasing Zelda at E3:

“Because we’d like to focus on developing the game [Zelda], we aren’t planning on showing it at this year’s E3, where we will be highlighting games launching in 2015.”

If Nintendo will focus E3 on Wii U games that will be released this year, they better announce a few new ones (Metroid?). Because Zelda was the one game every Wii U owner was looking forward to, so Nintendo better have something half-decent as a replacement.

Or maybe they’ll just reveal the new NX console…

Amazon Spain lists Splatoon for a May 29 release date [RUMOR]

splat2A few days ago someone updated the Nintendo Europe press site to reflect several release dates for upcoming games. The information was quickly taken down as it was discovered and reported, but nevertheless the rumor was that Europe will be getting Splatoon on May 29. Amazon Spain is now listing Splatoon with that same release date. While this lends a bit of authenticity to the rumor, we’re still categorizing it as a rumor as we have heard nothing official from Nintendo about the release date in any region.

Yoshi’s Woolly World was also listed for a summer release date, which is also mimicked on the Amazon Spain website. Perhaps they’re simply updating their release dates in response to the original rumor.

Either way, we’ll have to wait until an official Nintendo Direct presentation is announced, but it’s pretty likely Splatoon won’t be released until the end of May anyway.
