Legend of Zelda for Wii U Delayed Until After 2015

posted on by Egan Loo

Nintendo producer Eiji Aonuma announced in a video message on Friday that The Legend of Zelda game for Nintendo Wii U has been delayed until after 2015. Aonuma apologized for the delay and explained, "In these last three months, as the team has experience firsthand the freedom of exploration that hasn't existed in any Zelda game to date, we have discovered several new possibilities for this game. As we have worked to turn these possibilities into reality, new ideas have continued to spring forth, and it now feels like we have the potential to create something that exceeds my own expectations."

Aonuma and fellow Nintendo game designer Shigeru Miyamoto had said in a video message at The Game Awards in December that the game was slated for 2015. As recently as January, Nintendo was still aiming for the end of this year. The company reported on Friday that Aonuma's team has decided not to show the game at E3.
