Reggie: No dual-platform release of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Monday, 13th June 2011 12:17 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Nintendo US chief Reggie Fils-Aime has poured cold water over the idea of a dual-platform release of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

Asked if we would see a release of Skyward on both Wii and Wii U, Fils-Aime told VenutreBeat its assumption of not seeing a simultaneous release on both systems would be correct, adding that “it’s because Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword was built to be played with a Wii controller.”

Back at E3 2006, Nintendo announced a Wii version of Twilight Princess – originally a GameCube only title – would be available beginning from the system’s launch in the US. The GameCube version launched a couple of weeks afterwards in December 2006.

Zelda: Skyward Sword was confirmed last week for a holiday 2011 release.

    Considering that the WiiU supports all Wii controllers, seems like a waste to let that great of a game not be able to be played in HD. :(

    Not to mention he does say a “silmutaneous” release wouldn’t happen which is impossible anyway since the WiiU isn’t coming out until summer 2012…they probably just don’t want to have to re-do the game to get better graphics and change button prompts…just play it on the WiiU when you get a WiiU who gives a shit…Ninetendo sucks anyway
