To the dismay of The Legend of Zelda fans everywhere, Nintendo has announced the delay of the next title in the series for Wii U. That means it will no longer be releasing before the end of 2015.
Eiji Aonuma, the producer for The Legend of Zelda for Wii U, gives us a reason for the delay. Basically, he says that his team has discovered "new possibilities" for the game as they "experienced firsthand the freedom of exploration that hasn“t existed in any Zelda game to date." Thus, they would like to explore these new ideas and make this upcoming Zelda game "the best game it can possibly be."
Nintendo has also said that The Legend of Zelda for Wii U will not be making an appearance at this year's E3.
