The sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for Nintendo Switch is coming later than hoped. As Nintendo announced, the new part of the series had to be postponed to next year. The developers want to use the extra time to "make the gaming experience special". 

The postponement of the successor to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is ultimately not that surprising: Although Nintendo had stated in its previous showcase that the sequel should appear in 2022, there has not been much of the title to see so far. So while the delay was entirely predictable, the new news is a bit of a disappointment for fans who were hoping for an early launch.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild: New part only in 2023

In a recent video released by Nintendo, The Legend of Zelda series producer Eiji Auonuma explains that the developers are "diligently continuing to work on the game." They want to use the additional time to make something special out of the gaming experience. As unfortunate as the postponement of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 is, the new video shows some small scenes from the game.

Auonuma also gives some insights into the title. So fans can look forward to an "even greater variety of features", including new gameplay elements and new opponents. Nintendo has already given an indication of this by registering new patents, so that the so-called "phasing" - you love and hate it on World of Warcraft, for example - could play a role in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2.

After the presentation of the Zelda sequel at E3, Nintendo already announced that they would only dare to publish the title of the game when the release date was actually closer. One thing is already clear: Even if The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 will build on its predecessor, it should be a standalone game.
