It seems like fans have to wait for two more years as “The Legend of Zelda” Wii U release date might instead arrive in 2017.
Producer Eiji Aonuma said via engadget that the team is sorry for not being able to deliver the promised “The Legend of Zelda” Wii U release date by the end of this year.
“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,” Aonuma said “Instead, our priority is to make it the most complete and ultimate ‘Zelda’ game.
I hope to use the added time to make ‘The Legend of Zelda ‘for Wii U into a game that will reward you for your patience, so thank you for your continued support,” he added.
Also, rumors of a potential E3 2015 reveal has been debunked by a representative as the team will pursue developing the game to achieve its full potential.
Aonuma, however, guaranteed that the delay will pave way for ‘The Legend of Zelda ‘for Wii U to become the best “Zelda” game ever.
“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 even my own expectations.
As I have watched our development team progress, I have come to think that rather than work with meeting a specific schedule as our main objective, and releasing a game that reflects only what we can create within that scheduled time, I feel strongly that our focus should be to bring all these ideas to life in a way that will make ‘The Legend of Zelda’ on Wii U the best game it can possibly be,” Aonuma said.
