Zelda Wii U Delay beyond 2015

There were a couple things we were sure of when it came to the Wii U in 2015, one, there was a new Legend of Zelda coming in 2015, two, we watched hands on in game footage, three, it looked awesome and no doubt would be a great addition to the franchise.

Well, today became a sad day as we learned that the Legend of Zelda for the Nintendo Wii U will not be released in 2015. But why? It seems that while developing the game, they discovered “several new possibilities” for the game, Aonuma explained, which forced a reconsideration of their timeline and priorities.

In a video released today, Legend of Zelda producer Mr. Eiji Aonuma stated that:

Aonuma continued, “So, I must apologize to you all that were expecting the game by year’s end, but we are no longer making a 2015 release our number one priority. Instead, our priority is to make it the most complete and ultimate Zelda game.”
