The postponed release of BotW 2 seems to have struck a chord with many gamers.

The postponed release of BotW 2 seems to have struck a chord with many gamers.

It could have been such a great year: The long-awaited switch title The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 was supposed to release in 2022. But with a brief teaser, Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma recently announced that the The release of Link’s latest adventure has been postponed to next year.

This news particularly hit some fans of Animal Crossing: New Horizons. To give a proper farewell to the previous release in 2022, they have devised a special event on their island.

Funeral service for Zelda old release

What did you do? The players gathered on the island of a mourner who had prepared some kind of funeral. They even wrote their own song for the event, based on Gotye’s original “Someboy That I Used To Know.” On Reddit you can see how the guests enter the cemetery and mourn the liberation in 2022:

User tashamarie123 did a particularly good job of making the graveyard look like it does in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. After the mourners have passed through a kind of archway, they land in the middle of the cemetery square and vent their grief.

Of course, players dressed accordingly and tailored their clothing to the characters in the Zelda universe. So Shiek, Mipha, and of course Link are among the guests.

Finally, the hole in the ground for the 2022 launch is ceremonially filled with a shovel. The atmosphere in the graveyard is really perfect with scattered gyroids decorated in the colors of the Krogs.

In the comments column, the community agrees: The postponement of the release is understandable to most. For example, absurdparrot writes that additional development time will only make the game better:

I’m sad that it was postponed, but I hope it helps improve the game with extra time!

User you_are_breathing is particularly relaxed about the postponement, as he now has more time to collect all the Krog seeds in Breath of the Wild:

I hope this gives me time to collect all the Korok seeds in BOTW.

Other users agree that a rushed release leads to a lot of bugs in the game and therefore the release may be postponed. By the way, the community only has words of praise for the funeral.

By the way: If you want to sing the version of “Someboy That I Used To Know,” the funeral planner has posted the appropriate lyrics in the comments.
