So Nintendo had their investors meeting late last night/early this morning depending on where you live. So let’s jump right into it… It was a huge disappointment. They announced that Zelda U/NX (As it sounds) will be their only focus at E3. Now don’t get me wrong, I love The Legend of Zelda series… But this is a game that might not even come out until Holiday 2017 at this point.
Nintendo said that they will not be sharing any information about NX at E3, though they did announce that it will be coming out in March. So you are going to show us a game that might not even come out for another year and a half but you aren’t going to show us what the hell the NX is??? This blows my mind.
Nintendo also shared that an Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem Mobile App will be coming out in the future. Nintendo’s Mobile news shouldn’t be the highlight of an investors meeting that also talks about E3 and the NX…. But it sadly is.
Now I don’t know about you guys but I am very upset with Nintendo’s current strategy. Why aren’t they showing off the NX at the biggest freaking gaming convention of the year???? It makes absolutely no sense why they wouldn’t.
Another good point is that by releasing the NX in March Nintendo is missing the major Holiday shopping season. No one is going to buy a Wii U now that they know Nintendo has a better system coming out in less than a year. They have practically no games announced for the holiday season to begin with. Ugh…. I will rant more on Twitter. That is all I have to say for now. Rant over.
