​The 'Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild' Is Getting A Sequel, Trailer Looks Mint

​The 'Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild' Is Getting A Sequel, Trailer Looks Mint

Nintendo's E3 direct was full of big announcements - an Animal Crossing release date, Banjo in Smash, The Witcher 3 on Switch (and who saw that one coming?). But the final news drop is definitely the biggest. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is getting a sequel, and Nintendo released the first teaser trailer.

Which you can watch for yourself, below:

It's no surprise that Nintendo is working on a new Zelda - heck, with Link's Awakening and Cadence of Hyrule, there are two other Zelda games on the way, as we speak. What is surprising is that this new Zelda game seems to be a direct sequel to Breath of the Wild and like it will be released for the Nintendo Switch, too. To put that into perspective, while announced early in the Wii U's lifetime, Breath of the Wild was in development for *years* and didn't release until the launch of the Switch.

Of course, there may be a long wait for this Breath of the Wild sequel, and there's every chance it could slip onto Nintendo's next console. But, watching the trailer, it looks like it's being produced in the same game engine as its predecessor, and that suggests Nintendo is aiming to release it on this generation of console.

The trailer didn't give a great deal away. It looks like Zelda and Link are exploring a cave system under the surface of Hyrule. Possibly under Hyrule Castle itself. They discover something, or someone; a withered corpse, and it awakens. Then, back on the surface, a shock ripples across the land.

Released in 2017, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was a stunning entry in the series, launching the Switch in style. The game moved Zelda into the emergent sim genre, and hopefully, the nature of this direct sequel means that Nintendo isn't leaving that behind.
