In a Facebook post, Eiji Aonuma, of Zelda fame, made an announcement regarding the highly anticipated Zelda Wii U. It appears that the game will no longer be held to a 2015 release date.

In the video, which I recommend you watch, Mr. Aonuma states, “So, I must apologize to all you that were expecting the game by year’s end, but we are no longer making a 2015 release our number one priority.” This is sad news, as many Wii U owners were looking forward to the title this year, while many might’ve considered picking up a Wii U in order to play the latest Zelda title. However, taking more time to make the best possible game is still a good thing. Here’s to hoping for an earlier 2016 release date!

Update: It appears that not only has Zelda Wii U been pushed back to a later, unspecified, date, but that the game will not be making an appearance at E3 this year. This was revealed via the official Nintendo Twitter account, which you can see below.
