Nintendo delays The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 to Spring 2023

You'll have to wait another year.

Nintendo announced today that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 is being delayed until Spring of 2023. Previously, Nintendo aimed to have the sequel to the first The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild released in 2022.

This news was shared via the Nintendo of America Twitter, which shared a video of Eiji Aonuma explaining the delay. Aonuma details more about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, and the video shows Link wielding a broken Master Sword. Aonuma informs fans that the development team wanted to extend the development time and is working diligently on the game. He also offered an apology to those looking forward to playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 this year. The video is available on the official Nintendo YouTube channel as well.

While the news of the delay will surely disappoint many fans, Nintendo has a history of working on a game until it feels the game is ready. As a result, Nintendo produces quality titles, and this is likely the case for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2.
