Just before the week ended on a somewhat flat note, Nintendo decided to spice things up by announcing that one of the biggest games set to release this holiday season was being delayed. That's right, the true open-world adventure game for the Wii U, The Legend of Zelda, is being delayed, and now the Wii U's holiday line-up is looking awfully thin.
