Wii U – The Legend of Zelda Delayed Until 2016


The much anticipated The Legend of Zelda for Wii U has been delayed until 2016 and will not be shown off at this years E3 as previously announced as confirmed by a Nintendo spokesperson.

According to the statement, the development team has discovered “several new possibilities” for the game which lead to the change in timelines.   Nintendo wants to make it the most complete and best game it possibly can.

“As Mr. Aonuma announced, The Legend of Zelda game for Wii U is no longer targeted as a 2015 release. Rather than sticking to a specific schedule, the team wants to make this the most complete and the best game it can possibly be. The new launch timing has not yet been determined. Because we’d like to focus on developing the game, we aren’t planning on showing it at this year’s E3, where we will be highlighting games launching in 2015. We will let you know when we’re ready to share more specifics.”
