Breath of the Wild’s successor has indeed been pushed back to next year, however, Eiji Aonuma gave us a little hint at what to expect in the meantime with a tweet.
We already stated that the launch window for the game will be in 2022,” Eiji Aonuma, who has worked on the franchise for more than a decade, said during a clip released By Nintendo a couple of weeks prior to now. The publication date has been pushed back to Spring 2023, unfortunately, for those hoping for distribution this year. Please accept our apologies.
The Devs Says To Wait for a little Longer
When asked about the title’s general scenario, Aonuma reiterated that it would take effect on both land and air. He also hinted at the possibility of even more additional elements, countermeasures, and action in the final product. During his explanation, we have a peek of what appears to be a twisted or damaged Master Blade, and he concludes by adding that the whole project crew is working hard to render this game’s gameplay unique. I ask that you kindly wait a little longer.

Even though it’s doom and gloom, this wasn’t completely out of the blue. Despite the fact that Nintendo’s March fiscal statement indicated the company was on pace for the publication of Zelda Breath Of The Wild in 2022. Handful snippets of gameplay are all that is known about the game at this point.
There is a lot of conjecture in the public about how Link’s hand got infected and expanded to the Master Blade, which would make it useless in the struggle against Ganon. If that is indeed the situation, Link would have to make the journey to the clouds and scour for holy sites or a purification ability that could indeed restore the Master Blade’s strength.
We Might See Fi’s Return
In light of Skyward Sword’s latest conversion to the Nintendo Switch, and the game’s explanation of how a master blade came to be, this hypothesis has some merit. Zelda Veteran and gamer Zeltik has even speculated in a current clip that we might witness Fi come back, a soul that resides in Master Blade and who was mentioned in the original Breath Of The Wild.
Typically, Zelda titles are released every 2 to 4 years, however, the successor to Breath of the Wild will be released in 2023, six years after the original edition was released in 2017.
This system is still performing notably, and the studio has already launched Pokemon Legends Arceus, along with the Mario Kart 8 DLC bundle, Kirby, and the Forgotten Land. For Nintendo, everything is falling into place. There will be a new Mario Strikers adventure and the upcoming Mario + Rabbids title would be making its way to our console sometime this year as well.
