Nintendo has announced that the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will not be meeting its 2022 release date as originally planned, and will now be coming out in the spring of 2023.

The news was delivered through a video update from Eiji Aounuma, in which the series producer says:

“For those of you who have been looking forward to a release this year, we apologize.”

He then went on to explain, “The adventure in the 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 the video, Aonuma says that the delay was a result of needing more time to make sure that the game experience is where they want it to be.

While a disappointment, we are sure that players want Nintendo to make sure that Breath of the Wild 2 is as good as it can be, given just how popular the first game was. Releasing alongside the Nintendo Switch, the first Breath of the Wild was a critical darling and became a huge hit for Nintendo. As of December 2021, the game had sold 25.8 million copies.

Not much is known about the game at all, which isn’t surprising. We only have a couple of teaser trailers to go off and from what we have seen, the game looks to be in the similar graphical style of Breath of the Wild and possibly comes with a darker tone, perhaps just like Majora’s Mask.

There will most likely be more information about the game being released in the coming months, especially with E3 and other conferences coming up this summer. We will have to wait and see what information we learn as we now await Spring 2023.
