Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 was a no-show at the Nintendo Direct, and Nintendo acknowledged it

But what about Metroid Prime 4

Everyone tuned in to see if we’d get more Zelda news during the new Nintendo Direct, and we…sort of did!

Although the Skyward Sword HD Switch project was confirmed, Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 was a no-show. Series producer Eiji Aonuma did show up to deliver the bad news however, specifically explaining that there was no news.

Here’s the full script:

“Hello there, I’m Eiji Aonuma, producer of the Legend of Zelda series. I’m sure a lot of you saw me and thought there might be news about the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild game. Unfortunately we don’t have anything to share right now. We apologize. Development is proceeding smoothly, and we should be able to bring you some new information this year. For now we’ll have to ask you to wait just a bit longer.”

An on-screen graphic clarifies that it will be “later this year.”

If you want to see all of this for yourself, you can find it at roughly the 42-minute mark in the below Direct.
