When that “The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD” rumor surfaced on Monday, I decided to pass it up. After all, a very well-staged StreetPass hoax for “The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess 3D” fooled most fans last April during a “Zelda Symphony of the Goddesses” concert in Germany. So hearing about another Zelda rumor was almost too good to be true this time around.
Upon further inspection, however, there seems to be proof that eight new Wii titles have been added to the Nintendo Update Server (NUS) database — including entries for “The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD,” The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Metroid: Other M, and Super Paper Mario.
Below are two tables. The first table simply details the fifteen Wii titles that are currently available on the Wii U eShop across all regions. The second table lists the twelve new entries for the NUS database; eight are entirely new, while four are existing eShop titles marked for either Europe or Japan.
Just because new Wii titles were added to the NUS database — as of October 12, 2015 — doesn’t mean they are coming to the Wii U eShop. It’s also important to note that none of them are currently listed for the North American region. We’ll keep an eye out for any new information and, if it changes, we’ll be sure to provide updates.
