Zelda Wii U
This is the big one. We’ve waited for the next console Zelda since Skyward Sword in 2011 and we are finally just a year away. Our dream of a fully open world Zelda will finally be realized, dungeon’s order will be more open, and Hyrule seems more dangerous than ever before. Nintendo has been coy with footage of the title but that hasn’t lowered our level of excitement at all. The Legend of Zelda series is great at innovating with each new entry and creating a unique experience that will surely keep us entertained for years to come. 2016 can’t come fast enough.
