Nintendo has announced a release date and new title for the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
The long-awaited sequel to Breath of the Wild will be released on May 12, 2023. But it won’t be called Breath of the Wild 2, as Nintendo has finally revealed its title as The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
The announcement was made in a new trailer. Watch below for a glimpse of Link falling through the air.
We’re not much wiser about what the game will involve after this little trailer. Showing off a series of wooden sculptures, it gives us some glimpses of Link falling through the clouds, riding what appears to be a levitating platform and flying through the air. Of course, there is also the necessary cliff-climbing part.
But it’s been a long time since we’ve heard anything concrete about the Breath of the Wild sequel. Originally announced at E3 2019, we had to wait another two years before we got a second glimpse of Link’s next adventure. The last detail we heard was confirmation that the game has been delayed to a 2023 release. Now, we know exactly when it will release next year.
With Breath of the Wild considered one of the best games on the Nintendo Switch, expectations for this upcoming sequel are high. We look forward to hearing more details and seeing a dedicated gameplay trailer in another Nintendo Direct closer to launch.
