    It makes sense, this year is already stacked (especially for Nintendo!) There’s no reason not to take the extra time to add more charm and polish. I’m all for them pushing it back, and I will play Breath of the Wild again in the meantime 👍

    • Jeffrey Williams says:

      Still makes you wonder what they’ll do for Zelda this year given that they always put out something Zelda adjacent every year.Only thing I can really think of is yet another Zelda remaster but not much else.

    • Crowmaster says:

      Anyone got sum copium I need a large amount because I honestly believe Nintendo

      “It’s Poppi’s time to shine!”

      Monolith’s ready for final blow!

      Lil Lil Jep Jep!

      It was more than clear that Zelda BotW was going to be delayed the moment Xenoblade Chonicles 3 was announced for September. And furthermore when Pokemon Scarlet and Violet were announced (surely for November release)

      Zelda, Pokemon and Xenoblade are 3 most important RPG franchises Nintendo have (while Zelda is an Action-Adventure Game, it does contain a lot of ARPG elements, Specially BotW) and each must have their own space to shine.

    I love the straightforwardness and honesty here. They just come out and say, “Hey, we have a vision for this game, but need more time. Please be patient and trust us.” I don’t mind the delay one bit, either, to be honest. It just means they can polish up the rough edges and make the game better in the end. After all, as Miyamoto has said, “A delayed game is eventually good. A rushed game is bad forever.”

  3. Clay says:

    Honestly seeing it delayed just makes me more excited, because it shows that the development team is actually serious about BOTW2 and wants it to be a masterpiece before releasing. Respect, and I can’t wait

  4. ZeldaMaster says:

    With this being a sequel to one of the greatest games of all time, I think we can wait one more year.

  5. SaGaR says:

    I really do appreciate the fact that they come at us like this instead of not saying anything for another year. A delayed game is better than a rushed game

    • Crowmaster says:

      If it flops, I will consider this message as evidence of what happens when we hype up failed IP investments.

    • Eryk Rastone says:

      But a delayed game for to long can bring the hype up and make you expect more

    • Ajbolt89 says:

      @Weaver Quest Dude, Metroid Dread was stealth announced 19 years before it finally came out. Nintendo fans have a crazy threshold for delays, likely because they’ve almost always led to successful games.

      That said yeah it’s been four years, and Metroid Prime 4 was announced six, maybe seven years ago? Then scrapped and supposedly currently in the works. But I’d rather there’s never another Metroid game, or Zelda, than that the series dies on a dud of an entry.

    • Biscuit says:

      @SkullerClawer Bandicoot You obviously didn’t read if you don’t understand why it affects BotW2. You also have no understanding of business if it doesn’t make sense to you. one day when you grow up you’ll understand.

    • C Yo says:

      As a wise man (Shigeru) once said: “A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is bad forever”

  6. Anarchist Aaron says:

    I’m thankful that they’re not afraid to extend development time, really shows us how much they want to perfect this game before pushing it out the doors. I’m so excited! Thank you Nintendo 🙂

    • keiichimorisato98 says:

      Also helps that Nintendo has one of the better work cultures, so their decs aren’t being burned out, Sakurai is a bit of exception.

  7. Lulu Draws says:

    One of my greatest fears for this game is that it will feel like Breath of the Wild DLC. The fact it’s taking longer gives me hope the game will be full of mystery, wonder and surprises!

    • CooingWolf says:

      @Barley Nah, I’d say it was perfect, my reason being how immersive and engaging it was, and the story was pretty on point as well. It set a new standard for not only Zelda games but any open world game attempting to reach its level. It has also inspired other game series such as Sonic and Pokémon to do the same and reach for new heights

    • Barley says:

      @Katelyn Noel
      Be confident. Takahashi will
      advise the plot holes

    • Barley says:

      The game is decent because
      Monolithsoft made it. But it’s
      still far from perfect

    • Barley says:

      @Ian Cole
      They began end of 2018

      People are not machinas

    • Katelyn Noel says:

      i highly doubt it, given that it’ll be in development for over half a decade. personally, i’m scared because of how they’ll connect the two games

  8. Purpleon says:

    After seeing what happened with Security Breach, I see how important it is to make a game that is fully detailed and (for the most part) glitch/error/lag free. Thank you for updating us and please take your time!

  9. Sheev Palpatine says:

    I think this is what we all love about Nintendo, even when demand is high for a new game, they continue to work to make their games the best they can be
    Thanks Nintendo!

    • Crowmaster says:

      @Artagle If this game sucks they will have killed an iconic IP
      do you understand that they delayed it this long that if it sucks I will always be skeptical of these bots acting like its normal to expect delays to be associated with good return investment of consumer attention.
      If they delay it again no amount of bots will save this game.

    • GamerRyanBanana says:

      Preach Sheev!

    • Artagle says:

      @Crowmaster At least they put in effort to the Zelda games unlike the people working on mid Pokemon games

    • Crowmaster says:

      delayed arceus ended up an ok game
      high hopes aint on my mind
