In a video update, producer Eiji Aonuma described the reasons for the delay, and it's hard to be mad. "As I have watched our development progress, I have come to think that rather than work with meeting a specific schedule as our main objective, and releasing a game that reflects only what we can create within that scheduled time, I feel strongly that our focus should be to bring all these ideas to life in a way that will make Zelda on Wii U the best game it can possibly be"

 

Darn. of course that means ZU Will be twice as awesome.

 

I'm hoping for procedurally-generated Forbidden Forest (with stretch goal of dynamically changing everytime you turn around) and more Wii games in the VC.

it appears the video message was taken from an upcoming direct. I think we will get a direct week after easter.

Am I the only one who is happy about this? I really hope they create a game that people remember for generations, like aLttP, or OoT!

I was once known here as KillerMario, but since I really like Banjo-Kazooie, I changed my display name to show them my respect :)

I'm ok with ZU being later awesome. Being on time matters most for a little time, but having a perfect and awesome game is forever. Plus I actually have a bit of a backlog of games I bought but never played, or even touched in some cases.

I have a hunch that at e3, during Nintendo's Video Direct presentation we will have a glimpse at official box art and title for Zelda U, thus crushing all the stupid troll comments. Nintendo will do the trolling.

Delaying Zelda until 2016 is obviously for an NX version too, so expect 2015 to be the worst sales of Wii U.

Obvious? I don't really think so.. the only thing that seems obvious to me is that they want more time to provide the best experience possible, rather than releasing the game on a hard schedule and offering something that doesn't even meet their own expectations. We don't even know what NX is yet (besides a dedicated gaming system), or when it is coming out.

I doubt the delay actually means anything other than they need more time to develop the game. I was actually initially surprised when Zelda U was first revealed to come out in 2015. It seemed to soon. 2016 is more realistic. As stated above, the NX is most likely going to be released in 2017/2018. Plus, weren't all Zelda games delayed?
