The Legend of Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has an update for fans waiting for the 2015 release.

For those of you looking forward to The Legend of Zelda being released for Nintendo's Wii U later this year, the latest announcement from the developers requires you to wait longer for the game's release.

In a video uploaded to Nintendo's YouTube Channel on Friday we hear from The Legend of Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma, who tells us that the 2015 release for the game isn't a "number one priority" anymore.

Aonuma elaborates a little, saying: "In the last three months, as the team has experienced firsthand the freedom of exploration that hasn't existed in any Zelda game to date, we have discovered several new possibilites for this game."

Aonuma pretty much goes on to say that the development team have many new ideas they want to incorporate into The Legend of Zelda, "to make it the most complete and ultimate Zelda game." No other release window is mentioned.

The delay also signals that The Legend of Zelda will not appear at E3 this year.
