Nintendo delivering the goods yet again

Nintendo held it’s Nintendo Direct press conference at E3 on Tuesday, and revealed a sequel is in the works for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

A lot of news was announced, including the release date of Animal Crossing: New Horizon, Banjo-Kazooie joining Super Smash Bros Ultimate and a look at the Link’s Awakening remake.

But the big news was saved until last: there is a sequel to Zelda: Breath of the Wild coming for the Switch.

Nothing else was really revealed – we got a trailer of Link and Zelda sneaking around a cavern, and meeting a zombie-type thing.

Then came the message: “The sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now in development”.

Breath of the Wild was released on the Switch and Wii U in 2017, and topped many game of the year lists. It was praised for its openworld gameplay, that let players find their own way around Hyrule, at their own pace.
