  • Release Dec 31, 2016
  • Developer Nintendo
  • Publisher Nintendo
Official Site: www.zelda.com

The Legend of Zelda is one of the most iconic video game series in history, spanning 17 official games and legions of spinoffs. Now it’s coming to the Wii U under the working title of The Legend of Zelda, aiming for new heights like an open world setting and improved AI for Link’s faithful horse, Epona.

Plot details remain scarce, but it’s safe to say that The Legend of Zelda will revisit classic characters like Zelda and Ganon as well as the dungeon exploring and exhilarating combat that make the series so beloved. It’s hoped that the game will breathe new life into the series, combining the traits that players love while also revolutionizing the game with the capabilities of new technology. The game world is reported to be the biggest in the series’ history and also the largest that the Wii U can handle.

Rather than returning to a guided plot, The Legend of Zelda will follow in the footsteps of A Link Between Worlds and the original The Legend of Zelda for the NES in that the gameplay will be objective-based with free roaming. If players have ever wanted to explore the world of Hyrule at their own place, the newest entry in the series will be a great place to do it thanks to the enormous setting and beautiful graphics.

The game’s release has been pushed back and will be unlikely to happen by the end of 2015, but players are optimistic for a 2016 release.
