One of the biggest news from Nintendo at this year’s E3 is that they are making a sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Oh, did I mentioned that I just bought a Nintendo Switch last month? Yes, I know I’m late to the game but better late then never. And I’ve been playing Breath of the Wild non-stop. To the extend that I don’t have time to try out other great games on the Switch.
From the look of the announcement, I think we are still several years away from the actual launch date. I’m guessing at least 2 years. Can’t wait!
