The bookings for E3 2016 have been quite average and with that it has made The Legend of Zelda my most anticipated game of E3. I've been running into issues with a number of publishers not having their act together with many leading me on until the last minute, except Nintendo. They're the only major publisher I've dealt with that's truly had their act together. Over a month ago they knew exactly what they were bringing to the show and had booked a time with me. While I usually have many problems with the direction of the company it's nice to see one that actually had enough confidence in their title to just show a single game and provide me with a full hour session to give it a play. This shadows other publishers that shortened their bookings in terms of time and allotted slots while also taking up less show room floor. It's with this that I built up a strong hype around the title as I feel that Nintendo actually knows that they're going to knock it out of the park with Zelda.
No one has really seen much of this title yet, it's been delayed and pushed to whatever the future Nintendo NX will be. It's shrouded in mystery and possible discovery only giving us a short video of a luscious world to explore. It looked breathtaking from the photos and the video shown, it's also the only title I've been looking forward to on Wii U since the console's release. This game is also somewhat of a last ditch effort to show that Nintendo belongs in the gaming space and that they too can drive it home with their long-term triple A titles. If all goes well this could help Nintendo properly launch their next title and be the hottest game of early 2017. This will all of course be revealed during a sweat hour long hands-on session with the game as that's more than enough time to show me the full potential of The Legend of Zelda 2016 that will hopefully also gain a more whimsical subtitle. It looks beautiful while standing out proudly in my schedule and therefore something I'm very excited to get time with this year.
