The sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has been delayed to Spring 2023. We got a tiny piece of new footage in return.
Series producer Eiji Aonuma announced and apologised for the delay in a video (below), saying “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.” No specific reason was given for the delay.
Eiji Aonuma described a little about the game amid the announcement, saying: “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 wwider variety of features you can enjoy, including new encounters and new gameplay elements.”
Most of that was backed by footage we’d seen before, but one extra bit of footage has been added, showing a closer look at the new tattooed Link(?) we’ve previously glimpsed, and what seems to be a corrupted or broken version of the Master Sword.
