Nintendo has been known to announce games months before release, but they're always teasing a new Zelda.

I think part of the puzzle for Nintendo has been what to do with a title that a) clearly won't save the Wii U (as 3D World, Mario Kart, and Smash hadn't), and b) wont sell particularly well due to the Wii Us install base. For all we know it could have been on-track for its Q4 2015 release date but was delayed to release with the NX.
It sucks for fans, but it's not like Nintendo can just pull great games out of their hat for a new console launch ... having a new Zelda at release is significant. Nintendo is in the mist of an existential conundrum rn, and I'm fine with whatever they think they need to do to not go the way of Sega.

With Playtonic its simpler -- they just need to focus on making the best game are able to. Oct 2016 always seemed ambitious, but it's clear they're treating it as a serious goal, at least.

Oh, and I'm not convinced an NX port would be *that* much more work, considering they've already got builds to all these different specs (Wii U - PS4 - Windows/Mac) ... if they decide to do it, it'll be easy-peasy, right? :lol:

This is off target by now, but I don't think there will ever be a Half Life 3. The hype is too big. Even the greatest game of all time couldn't live up to the hypebeast that is Hypothetical Half Life 3.
Make the forum great again.

I would love to see an NX port as long as it doesn't hold back the release of the currently planned systems. It would be a nice bonus to see down the line.

I don't see an October 2016 release being likely. Playtonic are open about the delays they've already faced, and faced at Rare, and will likely face again.

March 2017, or even later, seems like a more probable release date. If that just so happens to coincide with the NX, I think Playtonic could make a nice profit by being amongst the launch titles, so they probably will make an NX version in addition to a Wii U one.

It seems like common sense to me. Why wouldn't they?

I can see an NX version getting announced during the NX Event this fall.

Personally I think that the NX getting delayed beyond March is more likely than YL getting delayed until March. I still have faith it will be out this year, not 100% sure about October but if it does get delayed it will be for the right reasons and I don't see it being a large delay. Even if YL is delayed until the NX is released I doubt there will be an NX version made, but a sequel probably would be released on NX.

NX speculation is difficult when we know next to nothing about it. We're not even sure if it's supposed to be a proper console.

As for Yooka-Laylee, I'm still inclined to believe that they can have the game ready and polished by October. A delay is very probable but I don't think it's inevitable.
