Zelda is Still Coming to Wii U, Tri Force Heroes Didn’t Cause the Delay

The Legend of Zelda Wii U

Longtime Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has confirmed that The Legend of Zelda game we saw at Game Awards 2014 will still be coming to the Wii U. The delay of the game was not caused by Tri Force Heroes, as Nintendo has separate teams for handheld and console games.

“We actually have different teams. Sometimes people on the handheld team do work on the consoles, but for this it was a separate team. I want to assure you that the Wii U Zelda was not delayed in any way because of Triforce Heroes.”

Future Sonic Games Will be Inspired by the Classic 2D Games

sonic-the-hedgehog-2 YT

Sonic’s latest console offerings have not been up to the quality players experienced in the 16-bit era. Sega has publicly apologized, and will be looking at the classic titles to inspire new Sonic games.

Coming from SEGA Europe Marketing Director Jon Rooke:…

“Sega has publicly apologised to the fans as the quality of console games in the Sonic franchise hasn’t been acceptable over recent years. It’s been tough translating that iconic side scrolling 2D experience from the 90s into 3D but Sonic is still huge for us so the new games will be more inspired by how it played in its heyday.”

Ubisoft CEO Plans to Fight to Stay Independent from Vivendi


Vivendi damn near crashed Activision before CEO Bobby Kotick bailed the company out with his own money. Now it seems Vivendi is looking to take control of Ubisoft, as they have purchased more than 6% of the firm’s stocks. Fearing a takeover, Ubisoft CEO, Yves Guillemot,  has vowed to employees he will fight to stay independent.

“Our intention is and has always been to remain independent, a value which, for 30 years, has allowed us to innovate, take risks, create beloved franchises for players around the world, and which has helped the company grow into the leader it is today,” Guillemot said in the e-mail.

“We’re going to fight to preserve our independence. We should not let this situation - nor any future actions by Vivendi or others - distract us from our goals. Our best defence is to stay focused on what we have always done best - deliver the most original and memorable gaming experiences.”
