The Legend of Zelda Wii U Delayed until 2016

by on March 27, 2015

It always felt like a pipe dream, and it turns out it was as Nintendo has announced that The Legend of Zelda Wii U has been delayed until 2016.

In a video on The Legend of Zelda Facebook page,¬†Eiji Aonuma, producer of The Legend of Zelda said:¬†“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.

“I hope to use the added time to make a The Legend of Zelda for Wii U into a game that will reward you for your patience.”

Given the little we have seen of the title so far, a delay perhaps isn’t surprising, but it will certainly be disappointing for fans of the series, and Wii U owners in general, with few major titles going to the console this year. You can check out the full video below.
