Zelda: Breath of the Wild Sequel is Called Tears of the Kingdom, Coming in May

Nintendo has announced the release date of its next big The Legend of Zelda game. This game will be titled Tears of the Kingdom and will be released on May 12, 2023 for Nintendo Switch. Tears of the Kingdom is the sequel to Breath of the Wild.

Nintendo shared the release date and title on Tuesday in a short teaser during his Direct presentation. The trailer shows murals that appear to depict Ganondorf’s Resurrection. This is followed by a number of short gameplay images, in which, among other things, you can see Link flying through the air of Hyrule on a kind of glider.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is the sequel to Breath of the Wild, which came out in 2017 for Wii U and Nintendo Switch. Nintendo already announced the arrival of this game in 2019 and shared gameplay footage for the first time last year.

The game giant previously confirmed that this sequel would be released in the spring of 2023. Initially, the game was supposed to be released this year, but the company later postponed it. Previous information from Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma shows that Tears of the Kingdom takes place not only on the ground, but also in the skies above Hyrule. Further details about the game are still limited.
