Nintendo love making use of their heavy hitting franchises, Zelda and Mario are synonymous with Nintendo consoles. So just how long will we have to wait for their debut on Wii U, Nintendo President, Satoru Iwata asks for your patience.
“We will announce the launch schedules for new 3D Zelda and Mario games in the future, but this is not the right opportunity for me to indicate when we will make such announcements,”
Yet Iwata admits that the Wii U will need more than mascots to survive and the importance third party developers will have in tapping into the core market.
“Our first party software alone can’t be enough to appeal to the different tastes of all game fans. The decision of Nintendo that it will publish the two software titles from Platinum Games is one answer to this challenge.”
