The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild 2 Release Date
The producer of the series Eiji Aonuma released a video, that you can choose to watch below, apologizing to the fans and saying that the sequel would not be released in the spring of 2023.
Though a specific reason for extending the game release date back a year was not offered, he did assure viewers that another year of waiting might actually be well worth it, “In order to make this game’s experience something special, the whole development team is still working diligently, so please wait a while longer,” as explained by the producer.
Breath of the Wild 2 New Footage
Right after the announcement, Aonuma offered some gameplay footage from “Breath of the Wild 2” as consolation for the disappointment some players no doubt feel over the year-long delay.
In the video, he talked about the game as taking place not only on the ground floor of Hyrule but also in the skies above.
The aerial portion of the sequel’s World is Skyloft, which was featured in “The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword,” but Nintendo is yet to confirm that locale will be in this game.
Even so, Aonuma stated that “The expanded world goes far beyond that, and there would be an even wider variety of features that you stand to enjoy, including new encounters and new gameplay elements.”
He Back up this by adding again stating that a new scene to go with the footage that was previously shown at E3 2021 according to SlashGear when the original release window was announced at first.
This piece of footage features Link who sports what looks like tribal tattoos on his right arm as he takes out his master Sword, which has been broken or corrupted in some way. Also, his hair seems to have grown some more inches, as if he styled it after Mel Gibson in “Braveheart.”
Aonuma’s explanation stated that the sequel release windows were taken back for quality assurances purposes.
