At the very end of Nintendo's E3 2019 Nintendo Direct, the publisher officially confirmed that a Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel is in development for Nintendo Switch. Apart from the trailer, details are pretty scarce at the moment.

Nintendo have held their E3 2019 Nintendo Direct show today and have revealed a lot of new juicy details about upcoming games but also had s couple of surprising announcements.

One of them is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel, which was teased at the very end of the Nintendo Direct show. According to the Japanese gaming giant, the sequel is currently in active development and it's coming to Nintendo's hybrid console Switch, just like the original game.

Unfortunately, Nintendo did not even mention when Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 could arrive, which probably suggests that it will take some time before we get our hands on the sequel. 

We're also in the dark regarding the game's story but given that Nintendo confirmed it's a direct sequel, it's expected that the story picks up shortly after the events in the first game.

The game looks absolutely identical to the original, with cell shaded graphics, the castle and Dead Mountain meaning that most of the assets from 2017's title will be reused in the new game. Nothing wrong with that of course.

As for the teaser trailer, unfortunately, it doesn't really reveal much. It shows Link and Zelda as they explore a mysterious cave that hides some sort of powerful vortex, which is controlled by a zombie-like creature. That's all the info we have at the moment and hopefully, Nintendo will share more details later this year.

Since we don't have any additional details about the game, we're gonna guess that Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 will have two-player co-op since both Zelda and Link are strongly featured in the trailer. It's not impossible since this feature was heavily requested by players.

In other Nintendo E3 2019 news, the publisher and CD Projekt Red officially confirmed that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is arriving to Nintendo Switch this year.
