The big N is tightlipped about it, though (they likely don’t even have decided about the final title of the game), but we have seen a bit of it: let’s head to the sky.
Two years ago, Nintendo announced with a teaser video that the 2017 Nintendo Wii U and Nintendo Switch title (the latter was a launch game, making it the console’s first killer app), The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is going to get a sequel. The video showcases that Link has a new arm, the gameplay is mostly set in a new location above the kingdom of Hyrule, in the sky. It’s likely going to keep the open-world, free approach in the game, which worked nicely for the first Breath of the Wild. All we know at the moment that it is launching in 2022 on Nintendo Switch.
Nintendo also announced a Game & Watch: The Legend of Zelda system, which will launch on November 12 for 50 dollars. Here is an overview of the system, via Nintendo.com: „With a retro look, legendary flourishes, and the power to save Hyrule, the Game & Watch: The Legend of Zelda system is a jam-packed tribute to 35 years of the Legend of Zelda series.
