The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 was arguably the biggest game we heard about during the Nintendo Direct at E3 2021. (Metroid Dread was pretty exciting news as well, but we digress.) While we didn’t learn a ton of new gameplay or story details, we did learn one very important piece of clerical information: Breath of the Wild 2 will come out in 2022.

Information comes from the Nintendo Direct livestream at E3 2021, where the 40-minute show finished off with a bevy of Zelda announcements. We heard about two upcoming DLC packs for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, as well as an inventive Zelda Game and Watch system to celebrate the franchise’s 35th anniversary. Last, but not least, we saw a brand-new trailer for BotW2, with the 2022 date stamped right at the end. You can watch it for yourself on YouTube, or embedded below:
