Whenever Nintendo releases a Zelda game for their consoles, it’s a big deal because of how big the Zelda franchise is. The good news is that if you thoroughly enjoyed The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you’ll be very pleased to learn that Nintendo has confirmed that a sequel to the game is in the works.
Details about the game are pretty scarce at this point in time. Nintendo has only launched a teaser trailer that confirms that the game is in the works, but they did not provide any other information. We expect that more details will be revealed later on in time, but it’s good to know that a sequel is in development.
It’s not surprising that a sequel is in development given the success of the original Breath of the Wild release, which according to the numbers, was actually Nintendo’s best-selling 3D Zelda game. It was also one of the rare games that got near-perfect review scores across multiple publications.
It was also the game that probably helped Nintendo sell a lot of Switch units because during the console’s launch, the attachment rate of the game and the Switch was said to be nearly 1-to-1, meaning that almost every Switch console sold was also sold with Breath of the Wild. There is no date on a release for the sequel yet, but we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled.
