One point of consideration arose from using the Wii U pad to control the game. In this version Nintendo was showing to the public, nothing appeared on the pad’s screen section except controller instructions. That Sheikah Slate you collet looks an awful lot like a Wii U pad, but even the Nintendo representatives giving the demo explained they didn’t know if the screen would serve any additional purposes.
Will the NX, Nintendo’s next console set to arrive in March 2017, feature a similar screen-based controller? Will it be compatible with the Will U pad? Nobody knew.
It would have perhaps been better for all Nintendo fans if the game hadn’t been so magically captivating. As it is, the next eight or so months are going to drag as we wait to be reacquainted with Link. It’ll be worth it though. Trust us.
