Since it was announced in the summer of 2019, fans have been dying to know the official name of the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. In today’s Nintendo Direct rollout, we not only get to know that, but finally the release date. Now we know the game name is The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.
In The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, players can explore the surface of the version of Hyrule they came across in Breath of the Wild as well as the various floating islands in the sky. In the new trailer, we see Link go from the sky to the surface, then from the surface to the sky.
There’s still a lot we don’t know about Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, but aside from the official name, we also have a release date. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingom arrives exclusively on Nintendo Switch on May 12, 2023.
