The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel delayed
Nintendo has announced a delay for the untitled sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
In a video message, producer of the Legend of Zelda series, Eiji Aonuma, revealed that the game’s release is being moved from a 2022 release window to spring 2023.
“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,” he said.
“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 Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s sequel is now scheduled to launch in spring 2023 for Nintendo Switch.
