Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 gets a new trailer
As we predicted before the E3, Nintendo couldn’t just NOT reveal something new about Legend of Zelda. Although, they did still fake everybody out with the new Zelda Game&Watch, and the Hyrule Warriors expansion, Nintendo came through on everybody’s hopes.
This Nintendo Direct was almost the perfect place for this trailer, this being Zelda’s 35th anniversary and all, but Breath of the Wild 2 still requires some more work. While what was revealed looked fantastic, the game is set to release in 2022.
New Floating castles and cities were shown, with air being a new dimension to explore in Hyrule for the new game. We can’t wait!
While receiving some stiff competition from Xbox and Bethesda, Nintendo Direct seems to have won the E3 2021. Let’s see where these releases take the two companies in the future.
