One of the biggest Nintendo Switch games of all time is officially getting a sequel.
During the E3 conference’s massive Nintendo Direct, the company swung for the fences, as it confirmed that a sequel is in development for Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Check out the first trailer for the highly anticipated game below!
The music in the trailer is reminiscent of something gamers heard back in Twilight Princess. As the trailer continues, Link and Zelda explore a cavern underneath the Hyrule Castle. However, their mission quickly becomes complicated when a skeleton falls from the ceiling, and the queenly figure appear to be wearing jewels from Hyrule. The body then opens its eyes. The atmosphere of the trailer is very similar to the past Zelda game, Majora’s Mask.
Nintendo did not confirm when the sequel would be released, but early 2021 is where insiders currently peg for its debut.
In addition to the BOTW sequel, Nintendo confirmed its remake of Link’s Awakening for the Switch will debut in September. They also finally gave an update on Cadence of Hyrule. The popular indie franchise will meet up with the Legend of Zelda shortly for this crossover in a matter of days as the game will release on June 13.
