The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Sequel Delayed to Spring 2023
Nintendo has announced the untitled sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has been delayed to Spring 2023. The sequel was supposed to launch this year but we’ve heard little from Nintendo in the month since the reveal.
“We previously announced that we were aiming for a 2022 release for this game,” Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma confirms. “However, we have decided to extend our development time 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.”
“As previously announced,” Aonuma says, “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 video doesn’t show anything we haven’t seen before as it includes familiar sights featured at E3 2021.
