Good news for Zelda fans.

Nintendo’s upcoming new console, the Nintendo Switch, has got everybody talking and there are many gamers who can’t wait to get their hands on the portable console. Several titles have been announced as launch games but none are as anticipated as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the first open-world game in the series.

Given that a Zelda title will be released on day one of the console’s life span, it’s not impossible that we may see the release of two Zelda games on the platform. In an interview with IGN, the series’ producer, Eiji Aonuma, said: “I haven’t been able to fully use all of the new features of the [Switch] … There could be the possibility of another Zelda on Nintendo Switch.”


When asked how a new Zelda game on the Switch would be different from Breath of the Wild, Aonuma said: “I think the core element of Zelda gameplay kind of stays the same. There’s the main character development as well as characters you meet along the way, and then you learn new things as the character develops.

“With that said I think we could keep all that, and then I do wonder how we can expand from here with that in mind.”

Aonuma has previously said that the next Zelda game after Breath of the Wild could focus on multiplayer, not unlike The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes which was released on the Nintendo 3DS back in 2015.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is set to be a launch title for the Nintendo Switch which will be available on March 3. It will also be released on the Wii U.
