My verified source from Nintendo has informed and shown proof of an internal US marketing budget and scheduling overview for 2016 focusing on Wii U and 3DS, with key parts highlighting The Legend of Zelda NX to be a holiday 2016 release either same day at Zelda Wii U or shortly after during the Nintendo NX holiday 2016 launch window.

  • Nintendo NX Launch games for 2016 besides Zelda NX and marketing focus remain hidden for now
  • Wii U $34.5 million marketing budget for 2016 total – Zelda Wii U has $10 million with the possibility of the funding being switched to Zelda NX version depending on launch timing in 2016.
  • 3DS $56.25 million marketing budget for 2016 total

Any idea if Federation Force is getting changed up at all? Or has the media blackout been a coincidence, with the game still coming in the form that was shown last year?

Bravely Second, Dragon Quest VII, Dragon Quest VIII, Pokémon 20th Anniversary game “Niji” (remember code names mean nothing, forget about the Rainbow, your gold is not there)

Other than the above there really isn't anything of note =(

So, what is your uncle's name?

(This thread isn't going anywhere without some kind of Mod confirming this, you know that, right?)
Bish confirmed Trevelyan's source in another thread.

Was their proof a digital photo of a printed list of games?

Bravely Second, Dragon Quest VII, Dragon Quest VIII, Pokémon 20th Anniversary game “Niji” (remember code names mean nothing, forget about the Rainbow, your gold is not there)

Other than the above there really isn't anything of note =(
You mean other than confirmation that Zelda will be cross gen, right? If this checks out I mean.

If that Caviar F thing is truly coming out spring / early summer and it's not an unannounced game, it has to be a localization. My money's on Rhythm Tengoku.

As for N-Stars, no idea but my money is still on a Nintendo published localization.
 
#33
N-Stars has to be an Amiibo game.

Dunno about Cadillac.. a "big budget" Nintendo-published game for this summer that hasn't been announced yet?



And I guess Wii U Zelda was delayed to retool it to not require the Gamepad as much or...?

Nstars might be Nintendo Skylanders.
Yeah.

There is nothing that is big budget and lacking localization.

My guess for the 3DS price cut is $30 since that's the price reduction it goes on sale for often.

2DS sells $129.99 regularly, goes to $99.99 on Black Fridays, etc.
New 3DS goes down to $149
New 3DS XL $169

Curious what these unannounced games would be.

More interesting this includes confirmation that an NX home console for a 2016 launch. No details about Wii U though? Not that I expect it to get all that much going forward.

Yeah.
Orgen (I think that's their name) said that the Cadillac game is a Style Savvy 3 localization in the now-locked NX thread.

FWIW that's the user who actually leaked Pokemon Black 2 and White 2.

In the last thread it was said not to pay too much attention to the "rainbow" part. Might not mean anything.
If this turns out to be true then I'm slightly annoyed that Zelda is indeed coming to NX as well as Wii U.

Still, this thread is going to be interesting.
What would be wrong with that? More people get to play the game.

Just a note to people, and especially blogs, reading this: when we "verify" sources, what we do is get a name to the source and verify that they are in a position that could plausibly know the things that they say they know. We do not verify what they're claiming, just that they are theoretically in a place to be claiming the things they are.

There's no reason to be annoyed. Zelda being cross-platform, like with Twilight Princess, just makes sense at this point in the game. If you were Nintendo you'd do the same thing.

Interesting. I guess it depends on the definition of "big budget". It's a bit of a misnomer when it comes to Nintendo, I guess.

2DS is already $99, I think.
I'm guessing the New 3DS bundles will go down to $170 or 150 with no game.
Not sure if they'll do anything with normal 3DS or if those have been discontinued
