Nintendo made their appearance at E3 with one of their classic Nintendo Directs. Although the 40-minute segment wasn’t full of brand-new content, we still got to see clips from Nintendo’s most anticipated game,
Nintendo E3 2021
The Legend of Zelda
After much anticipation, Nintendo finally decided to give the fans what they wanted, a new look into the upcoming Breath of the Wind sequel.
While the clip released doesn’t give too much away about what’s to come, we still got to see some significant differences to the first entry.
This time around, the skies the limit. Link will be able to explore various isles that have been propelled into the air. Not only that, but at the end of the clip, we also see Hyrule Castle floating above the ground, with malice lingering below.
Nintendo anticipates the sequel to be released in 2022.
If you haven’t already seen the new action, check it below:
The Legend of Zelda: Game and Watch system is set to launch on November 12. The LCD-style handheld will include four classic Zelda games, The Legend of Zelda, Zelda II: The Adventures of Link, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, and Vermin, now including Link.
Nintendo also showed the DLC for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for the switch, both previously announced, during the 10-minute segment.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate
Kazuya from Tekken has been announced as the next fighter to be added to the series through the second Fighters Pass DLC. Additional details on when they will be added to the series and extra info will be unveiled in a future presentation on June 28.
Yet again, no Metroid Prime 4 details were announced but we were treated to a brand-new entry titled Metroid Dread. In the trailer, protagonist Samus Aran is seen battling a giant white robot. Although the game is set out as 2D, there are still some 3D elements to the game.
