The Legend of Zelda for Wii U Has Been Pushed to a Next Year Release
Gabriel Roşu / 3 years ago
Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto and Eiji Aonuma have announced a few months back that The Legend of Zelda for the Wii U will be releasing in 2015, but fans will be disappointed to hear that Nintendo recently came forth and announced that the game will have a delay, pushing back the release date further into 2016.
“In these last three months, as the team has experienced firsthand the freedom of exploration that hasn’t existed in any Zelda game to date, we have discovered several new possibilities for this game,” Aonuma explained. “As we have worked to turn these possibilities into reality, new ideas have continued to spring forth, it now feels like we have the potential to create something that exceeds even my own expectations.”
“We are no longer making our 2015 release our number one priority. Instead, our priority is to make it the most complete and ultimate Zelda game,” he added. “I hope to use the added time to make The Legend of Zelda for Wii U into a game that will reward you for your patience.”
Also, the push-back seems to have affected more than just the release date, having Nintendo announcing that it will not showcase the title at E3. This could also indicate that a release in the first quarter of 2016 is highly unlikely.
