It would be an enormous understatement to say that Nintendo depends on
This is going to be the biggest project the company’s ever made. This game is one of the only chances the Wii U has left of ever recovering. This is the kind of game that could literally make or break a whole generation, a game that could spell the life or death of Nintendo’s reputation.
And, obviously, we all want it to be amazing; when don’t we? For a game this huge, a game this important, we all want it to be the greatest we’ve ever played. It’s hard to put into words how excited we all are for
Zelda U, how much of a role it plays in our lives months, maybe even years before it’s even released. My friends make fun of me all the time for loving and discussing a game whose name I don’t even know, but to tell the truth of it, I wouldn’t have it any other way. After being in love with a series for as long as we’ve loved Zelda, after crying along with its tragedies and celebrating its victories (and there have been many), it’s hard not to desire Zelda U. It’s nearly impossible for us not to love it already, hanging on to every little leaked detail and each and every tiny statement from Aonuma.
After all of that, it just leaves me mortified. Mortified, because I’ve been on this train before, and I know it could end poorly. I know that Nintendo needs this game to sell, more than they’ve ever needed anything, and that they might just go ahead and make it the most generic and heartless game we’ve seen. Another
Ocarina of Time clone would garner millions of sales, precious numbers we’ve been anxious to see. After all, didn’t Twilight Princess sell the most out of any Zelda game to date?
