It’s been a long time since The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 was announced and little has been heard from the game since then. That’s why there are always doubts whether the title will appear as planned. Nintendo has now commented on this itself.
The Japanese held a presentation for investors on February 2nd and also took a look at the future, in particular the planned releases in the new year 2022. Titles such as Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Kirby and the Forgotten Land and Triangle Strategy were already confirmed on a day-to-day basis as well as other games that have been announced for 2022 so far.
In this context, Splatoon 3, Bayonetta 3 and Mario + Rabbids: Sparks of Hope were first mentioned before “the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” was also mentioned in this category. Despite all prophecies of doom, the long-awaited switch sequel of the Zelda franchise could, in view of further presentations and information, miss the planned release in 2022 and only appear in 2023, so Nintendo itself seems to be sticking to the original plans. So if all goes well, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 will be available th is fall.
The question remains when there will finally be fresh information and impressions; Even the final naming of the Switch sequel is still pending. Nintendo is rumored to be broadcasting the next Direct conference next week, although that hasn’t been officially confirmed yet. However, the reliable Nintendo leaker Zippo is convinced of this and it remains to be seen whether the new Zelda could actually make an appearance.
While the leaker has no source-secured information about the content of the alleged Direct conference, he assumes that at least Kirby and the Forgotten Land, Splatoon 3 and Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will be seen. A new Fire Emblem is also likely and the announcement of Mario Kart 9, which was recently popular in the rumor mill, is conceivable. We’ll keep you up to date!
