Hey! I assure you, this is completely unintentional. We've shut them off. I'd give it a little bit to ensure that all the ad scripts have been updated across the site. But they should be completely gone fairly soon. :)

Oh, I'm certainly not saying I couldn't see the *benefits* to Retro pioneering a Zelda title. I'm saying that it seems highly unlikely that Nintendo would hand it off to them given the history of games that go to Retro. Games that go to Capcom are different. I see a higher likelihood that Capcom would be asked to develop, say, Zelda 3DS (although still pretty unlikely). Retro seems to be Nintendo's go-to studio for franchises that are in dire need of rebooting. They did that with Metroid, and did it again with Donkey Kong (though it was kind of a retro-reboot).

If this is true, however, I'll put my foot in my mouth and be pretty happy to see what Retro comes up with.

This rumor happened a while ago. Sorry, but it's definitely untrue. Nintendo hands off its languishing franchises to Retro; ones it hasn't developed titles in for a while. It was more surprising that they didn't hand off Kirby to Retro (Kirby is seriously starting to languish). Zelda isn't changing hands, especially after the blockbuster that was Skyward Sword.

Oh, and to clarify: I'm posting this as a random guy, not as owner of ZU commentating on a story he should have already read :B

Yeah, we got a lot of comments on this and, based on feedback, we've eliminated the four-month plans. It's just monthly now. Simpler :)

This timeline is missing about six more splits around when Link had a donut that turned out to be a time portal. That was a mess.

Zelda is more complicated than Doctor Who.
