Rumor: Zelda Wii U, Smash Bros 4, Splatoon, Mario Maker remasters in the works for NX


Hold on to your (red) hats… a new rumor is claiming that remasters of The Legend of Zelda Wii U, Super Smash Bros. For Wii U, Splatoon, and Super Mario Maker are in the works for Nintendo’s NX console. Nintendo insider “Emily Rogers” (via Nintendo Ethusiast) is reporting that Nintendo is currently hard at work on the remasters, but there’s a possibility that not all of them will make it onto store shelves:

The following Wii U ports in development for NX: Zelda, Smash Bros, Mario Maker, Splatoon. But…and yes there’s a “But”… Just because something is in development doesn’t mean it’ll be released. So either all four of these ports will come…or only two of them. I spoke with at least 10 people regarding these four ports. Splatoon is up in the air. Zelda / Smash Bros sound like guarantees.

While these rumored remasters are far from a guarantee, I’m sure that many lapsed Nintendo fans would be thrilled to see some of the Wii U’s best titles on the company’s next console. Nintendo is widely expected to unveil the NX console later this year, but when that is is anybody’s guess.
