The Next Zelda is in Development Already – Aonuma

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was an incredibly popular game and is sitting pretty high in Metacritic. Almost all Zelda games are critically acclaimed. BoTW was one of the reasons why the Switch had such a great launch and people are wondering if it can ever be topped.

BoTW took a different design theme than the previous Zelda’s. The world was more open and you were free to tackle anything you want.

Eiji Aonuma, creator of BoTW, has revealed that work on the next Legend of Zelda game has already begun. This is good news for fans and Switch owners expecting an another Zelda game to launch within the console’s lifecycle.

BoTW was announced in 2014 and released in 2017 and there was a delay in the middle. Nintendo usually do not announce their games early so we could see the game next year followed by a launch in 2019.

BoTW was released on the Wii U as well but it’s pretty safe to assume that the next Zelda will not be on that console.
