E3 2019: A sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now in development

Nintendo have confirmed that a sequel to 2017’s platform-defining, formula altering The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is in development. The announcement came at the end of one of the biggest E3 Nintendo Directs ever broadcast.

The trailer promises a similar aesthetic and a direct continuation of the Breath of the Wild story. In it, we see Link and Zelda getting a premonition of something awful on the way, Ganon’s corpse abruptly reanimating and a wide-shot of Hyrule that sent shivers up spines all around the world. It will come to Nintendo Switch … eventually.

At this stage, that’s really all there is to talk about this one. Nintendo only wanted to tease its development at the end of their E3 presser, not announce a release date. It exists, it’s coming and (as Reggie would say) our bodies are ready.
