Tears of the Kingdom is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Breath of the Wild. 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. With this sequel, Nintendo might be looking to go for that acclaim once again.
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. Now, fans finally wait for the sequel which launches in less than a year.
