Nintendo has announced that the release of latest game in ‘The Legend of Zelda’ series for Wii U will be postponed. Earlier, the game was slated for a release by the end of 2015, and the company mentioned that the release window was ‘no longer a priority’.
Lead producer of the game Eiji Aonuma had stated that gamers will have more possibilities to explore, when compared with the earlier releases. The new possibilities indicate a longer gameplay, justifying the delay. Aonuma mentioned that it was their priority to make a complete and ultimate ‘Zelda’ game.
“We are no longer making a 2015 release our number priority,” said Aonuma said in a Miiverse video.
Aonuma stated that the development team was working hard, in order to make the game worthwhile after the wait. The game will not be showcased at E3 2015 as the game is in the process of undergoing artistic and creative changes. Though several players are disappointed by the announcement, Nintendo is expected to release a polished and well-crafted product.
Nintendo has been experimenting with the ‘The Legend of Zelda’ series, with Majora’s Mask for handheld 3DS. The game ended the company’s 30-year stint with dungeon exploration gameplay. The company announced that removing the boundaries will allow players to enter from any direction. The new games will incorporate puzzle solving skills, as the player will have to think about the path, reaching the destination and how to reach it.
The popular franchise is of great value to developers and the team does not want to give games with reduced quality. Players are likely to hail the company for the extensive efforts for bringing out the ‘ultimate Zelda’ game for Wii U.
