There were rumours surrounding this over the course of 2019 and many doubted that the game could be adjusted to the point of running on a Switch.

The fact that there's going to be a The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 was the biggest highlight in the long list of Nintendo E3 2019 announcements today. It's hardly a surprise that the game would suffer some graphical downgrades, we dread to think about the goats sacrificed to even get The Witcher 3 to run on the hardware.

Between that, we're still quietly hoping we'll see something wonderful from Animal Crossing too.

The Legend of Zelda made three appearances, first in the form of a remake.

Nintendo's next Zelda game will be a "full sequel" to 2017's landmark Breath of the Wild, a Switch launch game that put strong emphasis on gameplay and exploration over graphics. Cadence of Hyrule, a Zelda-flavoured musical action game based on indie hit Crypt of the NecroDancer, will be out on 13 June. The game is expected to release sometime this year, hopefully a concrete date isn't far away.

-These new Nintendo Switch games were also revealed: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Complete Edition, The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance Tactics, CONTRA ROGUE CORPS, and TRIALS of MANA.

A sequel to Breath of the Wild is in the works, Nintendo confirmed at its E3 showcase.
