Legend of Zelda lovers will be disappointed to know that the release of the game for the Wii platform has been delayed. It was earlier speculated that the game would be available in its Wii version sometime this year. However, in a press release, the makers of the game have officially announced that the Wii version of the game will not be released anytime in 2015.
However, the makers say there’s a silver lining behind the delay, even though the delay itself might be frustrating. The makers of the game have also posted a video in YouTube. Series producer Eiji Aonuma mentioned that the delay is necessary to make the game as the “most complete and ultimate Zelda game”.
This proves that the producer of the game is adamant about making creativity more important than scheduled dates. The former would dictate the pace of development.
But the makers haven’t informed their fans of an expected release date as well. The game is considered to be brought back into the drawing boards as well. To carry on the message, Nintendo has also confirmed via Twitter that they wouldn’t be having the game in their platform this year. It shall also not be shown at the Electronic Entertainment Expo this June. Their spokesperson had also confirmed Aonuma’s announcement by a statement sent to IGN.
Quite to the disappointment and annoyance of the fans, this isn’t the first time that a Zelda game series has been delayed. The delaying of the game only makes the expectations that fan have from the game, higher. In the same tone, Aonuma said earlier that “several new possibilities” for the game has been discovered.
These will be implemented and the gameplay would be enhanced. Also, “freedom of exploration” could also be incorporated.
Zelda fans all over the world will now have to wait, hopefully only till next year to get their hands upon the game.
