Does Nintendo want you to get Twilight Princess for the Gamecube?

October 13, 2006

Why wouldn’t Nintendo want you to get the latest Zelda game for the Gamecube? The answer is rather obvious: the Wii is coming. For example, in Japan, you will only be able to get the Gamecube version of Twilight Princess in Nintendo’s online store. The game is also coming out [i]later[/i] than the Wii counterpart. But then what is the point of even releasing the game on the Gamecube? Wiill (see what I did there?) folks that get the Wii at launch, or close to it, even bother looking at the [i]box[/i] of the Gamecube version? Wouldn’t it bring more potential customers to get the Wii if that was the only console the long awaited Twilight Princess would be available on? Discuss in the forums!
