Expected release: Unknown
A sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was announced during the Nintendo Direct at E3 2019. A short teaser trailer was released, though not much is known of the game itself. It is currently in development, with no release window.
"Regarding the [Breath of the Wild] sequel, in order to make the vast world you enjoyed exploring in the original game even more impressive, the team is working hard on its development, so you'll have to wait a bit longer before we can provide more updates."
While this represents the first official mention of the Breath of the Wild sequel since the original announcement, no further details were provided.
As it is a sequel to Breath of the Wild, this game focuses on Link and Zelda uncovering the mysteries of ancient Hyrule. In the trailer, they are seen in an underground area, possibly beneath Hyrule Castle, where they find a corpse, which reanimates itself, causing the land around the castle to rise out of the ground. This body can be seen brandishing a Gerudo insignia on a golden medal, as well as having long red hair. It is speculated that the corpse is Ganondorf.
This game largely uses assets from Breath of the Wild, as seen in the initial trailer. The art-styles are identical from what has been shown so far.
