Nintendo brought the house down at the climax of its E3 2019 Direct with the announcement of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 for Nintendo Switch.
While we didn’t receive an official title to the upcoming sequel, we saw a beautiful, gloomy trailer that saw Link and Zelda investigating a strange supernatural occurrence potentially below Hyrule Castle.
Sporting the same engine that powered the first game, it looks positively gorgeous as our two heroes come across a haunted tree of sorts housing a decayed corpse with an amulet around its neck looking ominously towards them.
Both Link and Zelda play a prominent part in the trailer, enraptured by whatever spooky occurence has befallen them. It seems that whatever they encounter has a major impact on the land of Hyrule, perhaps flooding it with monsters and demons we must content with.
We didn8217;t receive any release details for Breath of the Wild 2 beyond the fact it8217;s in development and coming to Nintendo Switch. We wouldn8217;t be surpised if it8217;s still in the early stages, but that doesn8217;t make us any less excited.
The original is a masterpience, earning 5/5 stars in our review and for very good reason: 8220;If there’s a better game out there than Breath of the Wild, I haven’t played it. Nintendo has created, for me, the greatest game of all time. It’s everything I want from a game and one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve ever had.8221;
We8217;ll be doing an extensive breakdown of the trailer shown at E3 2019 alongside everything we8217;d love to see from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 in the coming days. For now, click here to see everything Nintendo announced at the show.
