The Legend of Zelda Breath Of The Wild 2: Release Date Delayed

Link from the Legend of Zelda Breath of The Wild floats through the sky

Bad news for Nintendo fans as the eagerly anticipated sequel of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 has been delayed.

The title was set to come out in late 2022, but Eli Aonuma, producer of the Legend of Zelda series confirmed in an official announcement video before that the game is now scheduled to be released in the spring of 2023.

Zelda fans across the globe will be left feeling bitterly disappointed, but I think deep down will know the release of the game in all its full potential will certainly be worth it.

Nintendo released a short video to make the announcement, apologising to fans with no other explanation other than the fact the game will just not be ready by its intended time of release.

Legend of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Release Date Delayed

It was in a short YouTube video that Eli Aonuma announced the delay, he announced:

“I have an update to share on the launch timing of the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. We previously announced that we were aiming for a 2022 release for the game. However, we have decided to extend our development a bit and change the release to spring 2023. For those of you who have been looking forward to a release this year, we apologize.”

They then went on to show an all-new teaser clip of the game itself with Aonuma narrating over the top.

“As previously announced, the adventure in this sequel will take place not just on the ground as in the previous game, but also in the skies above. However, the expanded world goes beyond that, and there will be an even wider variety of features you can enjoy, including new encounters and new gameplay elements.

“In order to make this game’s experience something special, the entire development team is continuing to work diligently on this game, so please wait a while longer.”

The latest in the long line of fantasy action-adventure games that have been released in this franchise has some big shoes to fill, with many saying the prequel, Breath of the Wild is one of the greatest Switch games of all time.

Its overall Metacritic score of 97 and user score of 8.7 back up just how much this game is loved and appreciated across the globe.
