Mar 27, 2015

Nooooooo!! But also, yeeessss!! In a suspiciously neutral tweet, the official Nintendo account informed the world that Eiji Aonuma “has a message to share”. The link led to the above YouTube video, and the video makes it increasingly obvious that… oh, no… the Wii U Zelda game has been delayed. Very much so. It never had a solid release date, but...
