Usually pre-order placeholders aren’t really worth paying attention to. However, there’s always room for exceptions, and this batch of Walmart Wii U listings – including a spot for “Zelda 2 RPG” for Wii U – manages to make my list. Technically everything on the list has been announced in some form or another – all of them were mentioned at Wii U Direct in January, for example – but none of them has had an official release date or title announcement yet.
“Zelda 2 RPG” is unique among the other new placeholders in that it actually has a product description that reveals some surprising info that fans of the franchise might wish were true…
The Legend of Zelda Wii U (Working Title), a Nintendo console exclusive, is a pre-release general action game to be released in Q4 of 2013.
That’s right: The Legend of Zelda Wii U (I thought it was “Zelda 2 RPG”?) will debut in Q4 of this year! Actually, it probably won’t. Placeholders are, after all, still placeholders, product description or no.
Here are all of the placeholders for unrevealed games that have appeared so far:
