Those that are eager to finally get their hands on the long-awaited sequel to the critically acclaimed Nintendo Switch game The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will have to wait a bit longer. In an announcement today from The Legend of Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma, it was confirmed that the launch date for the still-untitled game has now been pushed to Spring 2023.
Previously, the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was slated for a 2022 release. The game will allow players to not only explore a vast world on foot, but also to take to the skies above. An even wider variety of features will be available for players to enjoy, including new encounters and gameplay elements. The plot has been kept under wraps.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was released in March 2017 alongside the introduction of the Nintendo Switch. It introduced an exciting, new open-world chapter in the long-running franchise, which saw Link awaken from a hundred-year slumber to embark on a quest to defeat Calamity Ganon and save Hyrule.
For now, we’ll have to continue to remain patient for the release of what’s certain to be another incredible entry in the Zelda franchise.
