It’s been a few years since Nintendo first announced that it was working on a sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and now the release date for the new game is finally known.
The new sequel to the game is called Tears of the Kingdom and should appear on Switch on May 12, 2023. During the Nintendo Direct event, the company announced the release date, the name of the game and a short teaser video.
The video shows that Link will spend most of his time exploring parts of Hyrule in the sky, floating between each new part.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild debuted in 2017, the same day the Switch hit the market. The game was a huge commercial success, and the sequel has been eagerly awaited ever since. The new game was originally announced for 2022, but in March Nintendo postponed the plans to spring 2023, it says Engadget.
It should be mentioned that Tears of the Kingdom is not the only game that has been postponed to 2023, so next year we are also expecting Starfield, Refall, Hogwarts Legacy and Forspoken.
