The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild sequel feels closer than ever after the September 2022 Nintendo Direct. We get a release date, we got a title and we got a whole lot of hype! There were a few other exciting announcements as well, but I think the Zelda news was definitely what everyone cared about most. The next game is titled The Legend Of Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom is coming out on May 12, 2023. That's only eight months away!
What you really want to see is the trailer though!
Were you disappointed? I kind of was. There wasn't really anything notable in the trailer in my opinion. No hints of the story, other than showing the murals at the beginning. Everything else was, more or less, in line with what we've already seen. Though, we do get to see the game's actual logo after seeing Link flying around on some kind of glider. I have no doubt that Nintendo will release bigger trailers in the coming months.
The biggest piece of info is undoubtedly the release date. That's something Zelda fans have long been waiting for. It's nice to know the game isn't too far out now, after the delays it has faced. With Breath Of The Wild having been one of the biggest games ever, there's a lot of expectations for Tears Of The Kingdom.
Though it is exciting to finally have some news on the newest Zelda games, fans are still wondering if some remakes/remasters are coming at some point. With Nintendo having brought almost every big WII U game to the Switch, Two big Zelda games have been noticeably absent, especially considering the recent Zelda anniversary was the best time to release them. Instead we just got a Legend Of Zelda Game & Watch.
Will we ever see The Legend Of Zelda: Wind Waker HD or The Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD on the switch? I don't know. But I hope so.
The Legend Of Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom releases on May 12, 2023.
