While gamers are in the climax of the waiting game for much-anticipated "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" a sad rumor is circulating that the game was cancelled for Nintendo Wii U. Japanese website Kojiparapa started the stir and gamers are now fearing the disastrous possibility.

"The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" is thought to be exclusive for Nintendo Wii U and will eventually land in Nintendo Switch. Come to think of it, the title is probably the biggest draw so far for confirmed titles of Nintendo Switch. Here is the problem, while Nintendo Switch plans may never be affected with "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" tucking its tail, but Nintendo Wii U sure is.

Kojiparapa cites that Nintendo Wii U is not powerful enough to play "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" seamlessly. Needless to say, Nintendo Switch is out of the equation if rumors are true that it flexes a muscle that is at least console-level.

Here is another worthy thought: Nintendo have stopped production of Wii U due to very low demand and high anticipation for Nintendo Switch. If so, is "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" withdrawn to set Wii U in limbo and focus rather on Switch? The former is cutting short its lifespan as well from supposedly five years to just 4 to pave way for Nintendo Switch.

Meanwhile, online forum GameFAQs has lengthy feedbacks about this rumor. "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" is being waited upon by Wii U players and Nintendo is going to be in deep trouble after years of promising the game. Others are claiming that Zelda is the lone reason why the bought Nintendo Wii U in the first place.

At any rate, we give emphasis that everything about alleged "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" cancellation are just rumors. While Nintendo remains shut regarding this topic, take everything with a grain of salt.
