The time has finally come! The September Direct has come and gone and left us with some exciting news about the sequel to Breath of the Wild. Named Tears of the Kingdom, the highly anticipated title will release May 12th, 2023!

The new trailer teases an open world in the sky, featuring gameplay staples from the first game such as climbing, yet adding some new gimmicks as well. There are mysterious Zonai marking on cliffs and amidst the skies Link is traversing, as well as a bird-shaped platform that he navigates upon. There are also some interesting story elements for our theorizing brains to dissect, such as carvings of heroes and monsters of old.

The following is the description of Tears of the Kingdom from Nintendo’s latest press release:

“The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom: In addition to the vast lands of Hyrule, the latest entry in the storied Legend of Zelda series will take you up into the skies and an expanded world that goes beyond that! Look forward to Link’s massive adventure starting again when The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, drops for Nintendo Switch on May 12, 2023.”
