The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will continue Link’s journey in early 2023

Thanks to today’s Nintendo Direct presentation we now know what the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is called, and when it will release.

Titled The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, the next instalment of Link’s iconic journey is set to release on May 12, 2023. It will, of course, be a Nintendo Switch exclusive.

This news was joined by a first look at gameplay, which sees Link exploring Hyrule by air and on foot. You’ll get to see Link ride a stone bird, watch as he skydives, experience the new stasis power and get a glimpse at the “shattered” world of Hyrule.
