Just before the end of the fiscal year, Nintendo has confirmed the news many have expected for the next 3D Zelda game.
Legend of Zelda series producer, Eiji Aonuma has confirmed that the highly-anticipated Sequel to the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has officially been delayed from 2022 to Spring 2023.
During the “Launch Timing Update” video, Aonuma states: “In order to make this game’s experience something special, the entire development team is working diligently on this game, so please wait a little while longer”. Since last year, Aonuma noted they were “aiming for a 2022 release”. It’s possible that the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has hindered the game’s development.
The Sequel to the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was first announced at E3 2019 and now has its first delay which is continuing the tradition of every mainline 3D Zelda game being delayed at least once.
