With "The Legend of Zelda" hitting the market soon, it has been revealed that Nintendo is yet to confirm the game's release. Also, the game's "Twilight Princess HD" has encompassed three generations of consoles.

According to Game Spot, the Nintendo Wii U faced a very challenging 2015, which was coupled with the death of Saturo Iwata. Along with the current state of the game's release date, "The Legend of Zelda" now stands as one of the most delayed video games of 2016, as per the publication.

While previous reports revealed that "The Legend of Zelda's" delay is due to some issues, other reports said that another reason for the game's postponed release is the elements that Nintendo want to integrate into its product lines. As per Ecumenical News, the game is set to be released along with the upcoming Nintendo NX console.

Fans can expect that "The Legend of Zelda" for Wii U will be released in December this year, which is based from the released date noted on the Amazon website. As per the site, the game is set at a price of $59.99, along with the release date as mentioned earlier. However, this should be taken with a grain of salt, since it is unconfirmed if Amazon got the detail from a credible source.

In other news, "The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD" has reportedly covered three console generations. According to Eurogamer, the game began as a "snippet" in a GameCube demo showreel and appeared in its full form at an E3 2004 event. An issue was the games late arrival versus its projected format, so it was released as a hybrid on GameCube and Wii.

Following a decade, the game had its more ambitious HD remaster, which arrived on the Wii U, Nintendo's console that integrates a core IBM-based architecture along with its two predecessors. It also makes use of an enhanced CPU speeds and high-quality GPU power to maximize its 1080p resolution.

"The Legend of Zelda" serves as the title of the upcoming action-adventure game developed by Nintendo for the Wii U home video game console. It also serves as the 19th game installment in Nintendo's "The Legend of Zelda" series, as well as the initial original "Zelda" game enhanced with high-definition (HD) graphics.

As an action-adventure game, "The Legend of Zelda" is set in an entirely interlaced overworld, which resembles the original "The Legend of Zelda." The difference is the less definition on dungeon entrances and exits.

Nintendo initially plotted the game for a 2015 release, but in March 2015, game producer Eiji Aonuma revealed that the company had not been aiming for the game's launch that year. It was at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2015 when Nintendo America President Reggie Fils-Aime confirmed that the game will be released in 2016.
