The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Sequel Is In Development
Legend of Zelda had a big E3 coming, and it looks like the franchise is making bigger moves behind the scenes than we thought. During the conference’s massive Nintendo Direct, it was confirmed that a sequel is in development for Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Yes, you heard that right. Nintendo decided to swing out big with a direct sequel to one of the Nintendo Switch’s top-selling games, and Zelda fans are already losing their minds over the surprise reveal.
The trailer, which you can see above, is packed with Easter eggs. The music which can be heard at the beginning sounds very familiar to something gamers heard back in Twilight Princess. As the trailer continues, fans watch as Link and Zelda explore a cavern underneath the Hyrule Castle. However, their mission gets bunked when a skeleton falls from the ceiling, and the queenly figure appear to be wearing jewels from Hyrule. The body then opens its eyes, and fans have been quick to point out how this dark atmosphere ties in with titles like Majora’s Mask.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild launched alongside the Switch, and has gone on to become one of the most acclaimed games of all time, so news of a sequel is exciting, to say the least. Unfortunately, other details including a release window have yet to be announced.

The original The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was released for Nintendo Switch and Wii U in 2017. The game gave the Zelda franchise a vast open world to explore, letting players conquer the world of Hyrule at their own pace and using their own solutions.
A Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel is coming, and it’s in development right now. The Nintendo E3 2019 presentation ended with a surprise look at the new Zelda game, and though it was relatively brief, it was still one of the E3 2019 games that I hadn’t dared to or hope for.
