Legend of Zelda delayed AGAIN to 2017, will launch on Nintendo NX

The Legend of Zelda Wii U has been delayed yet again, this time into 2017, Nintendo has confirmed.

Nintendo also revealed that the game will now also be launching on the Nintendo NX, which has been given a release date of March 2017 and be skipping this year’s E3 entirely.

Nintendo confirmed the news during a financial briefing.

The Legend of Zelda Wii U was announced way back at E3 2014, with the intention of the game being launched that year.

After multiple delays the game now looks set to launch (finally) in 2017, probably in March as a launch title for the NX, simultaneously arriving on the Wii U, too.

Nintendo also confirmed that Zelda will be a heavy focus of this year’s E3 conference, which you have to imagine will be a very underwhelming affair with the complete absence of the NX.
