Initially expected for later this year, The Legend of Zelda Wii U wont’ hit our homes until at least 2016, according to the game’s producer Eiji Aonuma.
On a video uploaded on YouTube and Facebook, Mr Aonuma explained to the fans that the team working on the game has discovered several new possibilities for it.
“As we have worked to turn these possibilities into reality, new ideas have continued to spring forth, and it now feels like we have the potential to create something that exceeds even my own expectations,” Mr Aonuma said.
“I feel strongly that our focus should be to bring all these ideas to life in a way that will make The Legend of Zelda on Wii U the best game it can possibly be.”
Nintendo of America also tweeted last night that the game will not make an appearance at this year’s E3.
The Legend of Zelda Wii U was announced during E3 2014, where Mr Aonuma promised an open world game that would be “a clean break from the conventions of past games in the Zelda series, where you had to follow a set path and play through the scenario in the right order.”
