During Nintendo’s E3 2019 Direct presentation, the Japanese gaming giant confirmed that a direct sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, one of the most critically acclaimed video games ever released, is currently in development for the Switch.
Little was revealed about the game beyond a cryptic trailer featuring both Link and Zelda, along with what looks like Hyrule Castle blasting off or exploding.
It’s unclear when Nintendo plans to release The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, but it’s likely safe to assume it’s at least a few years away from coming out.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was first released back in 2017 for both the Nintendo Switch and the Wii U.
Given how much I enjoyed the first Breath of the Wild — I’ve even gone so far as to call it one of the best video games of the past decade — I’m really looking forward to seeing what Nintendo has in store for the title’s sequel.
