Like others, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of Wild 2 will be late on Nintendo Switch. Link wants to take care of his arrival and will not land until next year.
Forget the 2022 release for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2. License producer Eiji Aonuma took the floor to announce a delay of several months.
Between March and June 2023
And here is one more big postponement, that of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2. Originally scheduled for 2022, with no specific release window, the game is now set for spring 2023. Of course, still, a Nintendo Switch exclusive unless a Switch 2 or Pro 4K is actually announced in the meantime. At 3 p.m., one day, of course.
I am Eiji Aonuma, producer of The Legend of Zelda series. I have news to share about the release date of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel. We previously announced that we were planning to release the game in 2022. However, we have decided to extend the development time of the game and bring its release date to spring 2023.. We would like to apologize to those who were planning to play it this year.
Breath of Wild 2: Link flies away
The disappointment over, Eiji Aonuma promises us that the wait will be worth it. The developers want players to have a special experience again, and for that they need time.
As previously announced the game takes place not only on the lands of the previous game but also in the skies above them. However, this world also opens up to new horizons and rest assured that it has a lot of surprises in store for you, such as new encounters and new gameplay elements. We are committed to making this game a truly special experience and the whole team continues to work diligently to bring this project to fruition.
And do not forget: “a delayed game may be good one day, a bad game released will always be bad” (Shigeru Miyamoto). The Legend of Zelda: Breath of Wild 2 is coming Spring 2023 to Nintendo Switch.
