Scattered details about Breath of the Wild 2 aimed for a late 2022 release date, with most fans expecting the game around the holiday season. A March announcement from Legend of Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma pushed this timeline back somewhat, informing the game’s eager audience that it would actually be released in the spring of 2023.

The team behind the game decided to extend the title’s development time by a few months, according to Aonuma. Fans can now expect the game some time in the first quarter of 2023, between January and March.

Breath of the Wild 2 is a Nintendo game and will thus release exclusively on the Nintendo Switch.
