Nintendo saved us a most delightful surprise at the end of their Nintendo Direct for E3 2019. They announced that a new Legend of Zelda game is in development and it’s a full sequel to Breath of the Wild for Nintendo Switch. See below for some awesomely creepy screenshots of the trailer.
What we see in their sneak-peek trailer is Zelda (with short hair) and Link riding down to some caverns beneath Hyrule Castle. It appears that the Malice, a poisonous substance unleashed by Calamity Ganon, is back again and coming from a most sinister source. We see a mummified ancient character awakening with the help of an ethereal green hand. Afterward, we pan out to a rumbling earthquake and Hyrule Castle beginning to rise.
All we can do is speculate for now as to what exactly this new story will be about but it is most definitely in the same open-world with the same beautiful graphics from the first Breath of the Wild game back in 2017. Normally Zelda games don’t get direct sequels but this one in particular is regarded as one of the best games of all time.
We here at myPotatoGames are incredibly excited for this sequel and will continue to keep you updated as we receive more news. For now you can check out our article on Link’s Awakening which also got a new trailer from Nintendo’s Direct.
