    Nintendo has revealed an all new Zelda game coming to Switch on November 20th, this year.

    In a surprise announcement from Nintendo, it appears that there will be a new Zelda game coming to Switch this year, after all. Unfortunately it’s not the game that everyone wanted. However, the developers of this new title did announce that Breath of the Wild 2 is still in development, and needs more time to become everything that the fans are hoping for.

    Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity

    This announcement also came with a detailed trailer of what to expect from the new title. From the way it looks, this new game will be heavily battle focused, so this may be the only time you read about it on myPotatoGame, as I more prefer the in-depth story and exploration aspects of the series.

    Those of you who love a good fight, though, this game should be right up your alley. This new game will tell the history of Hyrule through a series of battles where you will fight as Link, Zelda and more. The story will focus heavily on the impact that has been seen from the series’ antagonist, Calamity Gannon.

    Currently in development by Naps Team, Baldo is an upcoming action-adventure coming to Switch, amongst other platforms. The Zelda-inspired game has a cel-shaded art style, which is comparable to that of Studio Ghibli and Ni No Kuni.

    There isn’t a lot of information available about Baldo. However, the following Nintendo announcement trailer, shows that in-game action is top-down, but that the game’s pseudo-realistic backgrounds are 3D.

    The description beneath the game’s announcement trailer says the following:

    The prophecy came true, the pure child is born. The no heart creature sealed in the underworld by the wise owls is about to rise again. The game is set in the world of Rodia, a journey into a magical land full of mysteries to discover. Baldo is an action adventure rpg, full of puzzles and intricate dungeons to solve. Traveling around the world, Baldo will interact with many weird and funny characters scattered everywhere, to complete the main story quest and many other side quests. You’ll travel into an open world map discovering new towns and people, fighting enemies, locating hidden temples and collecting objects to get new weapons or items to use.

    From the trailer, it looks like players encounter a variety of characters and monsters. Additionally, it appears that dungeon-crawling, puzzle-solving and exploration all feature in the game.

    Baldo will release on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows.

    A release date for the game is still TBA.

    Baldo has its own Facebook and Twitter pages where you can follow the game’s progress. Despite a lack of posts since earlier in 2019, Baldo recently replied to a post on WholesomeGames Twitter on 12th January.

    Yay! They’re alive! 🙂

    I’ve been keeping an eye on PINE for a long time now.  I first reported on it when the game was approaching the beginning of its Kickstarter campaign in early 2017.  The campaign was successful enough to secure a Switch version of the game.  It has since then been featured in this spring’s “Nindies” Showcase, bringing it to the attention of a much broader audience.

    Fans of the Zelda Franchise have long been waiting for PINE to come to Nintendo Switch. Introduced in October 2016, Pine is an adventure and exploration game, with an open world setting similar to Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Now we finally have a release date for the Nintendo Switch version of the game.

    PINE Nintendo Switch Release

    According to a recent announcement from developer Twirlbound, the game will hit the Nintendo Switch eShop on November 26th and pre-orders will open as soon as November 15th.

    To celebrate the announcement some new gameplay footage has been released as well! Take a look below. If you would like to already start exploring the game, you can grab it for $24.99 on Steam and start playing on PC and Mac today.

    Zelda Links Awakening is arguably one of the cutest looking remakes ever created. The bubbly and soft look of the game just makes me want to live in such place. Today Nintendo released an English commercial for the upcoming Nintendo Switch game.

    There isn’t much news to take from it, other than drowning yourself in the gorgeous environments and lovable characters shown in the trailer below. The big N also recently revealed that there will be a way to use Amiibos to summon Shadow Link to help you in the many dungeons.

    The game originally released on Game Boy in 1993, will launch on September 20th for the Switch alongside the new Nintendo Switch Lite console. If you want to play the game on launch day, you can pre-order it via Amazon.

    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.

    Nintendo released the latest firmware update 8.0.0 a few days ago, with it came some great new changes to the console. The big N added some fresh new avatar images for Splatoon 2 and Yoshi’s Crafted World fans and an option to transfer save data which could be in preparation for the rumored smaller and cheaper Nintendo Switch. But besides all these changes Nintendo also quietly made the current Switch faster which helps load games quicker.

    GameXplain was kind enough to put a video together showing some of the improved loading times, which is in combination with a recent update to Mario odyssey as well.

    Mario Odyssey seems to be loading a lot faster with the recent updates Nintendo released. Zelda Breath of the Wild has undergone a similar treatment and players are reporting much faster loading times when entering the beautiful world of Hyrule. Check out all the new additions that have arrived with Firmware Update 8.0.0 below.
