The sequel to Zelda: Breath of the Wild delayed to Spring 2023

Nintendo has announced that the highly anticipated sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is delayed until next year, with a new launch window set of Spring 2023.

Fans had begun to expect and anticipate a delay in recent months after the as-yet untitled sequel remained unspoken of as we got deeper into 2022, which was initially revealed as its launch window. The delay was revealed in a brief video from Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma.

You can see the video for yourself below, though please note that it only contains an apologetic statement from Aonuma announcing the delay and footage from existing trailers - except for a few seconds of new footage showing Link holding a mangled, ruined Master Sword - intriguing! Here's the image:

So, there you have it. We'll now be waiting until next year to get our hands on Breath of the Wild's sequel - though we might learn more about this game later this year. RPG fans still have plenty to look forward to from Nintendo this year, however, including Xenoblade 3, Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, and of course Pokemon Violet and Scarlet
