Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom was pretty much complete by March 2022, last year spent on polish


The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom may have been out for over a week now, but there is still a lot of excitement and discussion over Nintendo‘s latest game. However, you might be interested to learn that, if things went originally as planned, this excitement and discussion would have taken place a year ago.

You see, Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma recently spoke to The Washington Post about The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. In the interview, he revealed that the game was supposed to release last year. In fact, by the time March 2022 arrived and a delay was announced, the game was pretty much complete. Nevertheless, Aonuma says that they delayed it because they “wanted to make sure that everything in the game was 100 percent to our standards”. The last year was spent polishing the game and making sure the “wild physics of the game just work”.
