The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Sequel
The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild received critical praise from both fans and game critics for its gameplay, open-world elements, and wonderful storylines. The immersion it provided was better than any previous game in the series. It has been touted as a masterpiece and has even been called one of the greatest games of all time. So, it was natural that everyone expected a sequel to this wonderful game.
The development of the Breath of The Wild sequel started back in 2017 as soon as the production of the Breath Of The Wild ended. In E3 2019 Nintendo Direct, a teaser trailer was shown to the public. After a lot of speculation in the next couple of years, another 2-minute teaser was released in E3 2021 Nintendo Direct. This time, it featured the open world of Hyrule once again, various gameplay mechanics, and small bits and pieces of what’s going on in the story. The release date in 2022 was also announced.
Now, with the game being slated for a Spring 2023 release we all have to wait for a bit longer. Nintendo rarely disappoints with Legend of Zelda games so we definitely should wait and see what they come up with. The game will surely be a talking point for years to come if they nail every aspect of it perfectly.
