Walmart Lists ‘Zelda 2 RPG’ and Other Teased Wii U Titles for Pre-order

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.

And before you ask: no, this isn’t actually supposed to be a listing for Wind Waker Wii U. It has a separate listing here.

Here are all of the placeholders for unrevealed games that have appeared so far:

Mario Kart Wii U
Mario 3D Wii U
Shin Megami Tensei / Fire Emblem Wii U
Super Smash Bros. Wii U
Zelda 2 RPG Wii U
