This could give a big boost to NX if true.
While we still don’t know that much about the Nintendo NX there appears to be more and more evidence that the console might actually be launching later this year. Of course, when we say evidence we mean there is a lot of talk from people who have been leaned on as sources in the past. Nintendo has been promising we’ll learn more later this year but so far we haven’t learned much of anything other than we’re still waiting.
On February 22nd, a Neogaf user posted a thread where he talked about the plans of the Nintendo 3DS and the NX. That thread seems to have delivered when it comes to Pokemon Sun and Moon. Since that seems to have been true, it makes some sense that some other claims might be true as well. Among those claims is the talk that the newest Legend of Zelda is going to be a Nintendo NX launch title.
This of course would be big news considering there have been more than a few people who have been skeptical as to whether or not the NX could even launch this year. Most people have said they don’t expect it until next year. It’s of course possible that the new Legend of Zelda could launch on the Wii U this year and then be ported over to the NX when that console is ready. However we will not know for sure unless Nintendo sheds more light on whats going on, but the company did say the end of 2016 is going to be a busy time, and that could be because they will be making and shipping the console this Holiday season.
