Nintendo at E3 2021 – Zelda Breath of the Wild 2, Metroid Dread and more
Nintendo may not have shown much at E3 2021, and still owed the unveiling of the supposed Nintendo Switch Pro, which would be more powerful. But Big N did its job and showed good games and content at the event. Highlights were the announcement of Metroid Dread and a video of the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
The Sherwa blog features the main announcements for Nintendo at E3.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2
Now we know that the long-awaited sequel to Breath of the Wild arrives in 2022 for Switch. We still don’t know the official name of the game. What has been said is that we will only know the title of the new Zelda in the future, as it delivers an important plot element.
In the revealed trailer, it is possible to see Link exploring various flying islands scattered across Hyrule. Not only that, his arm appears to have taken some damage, and a special bracer is what makes him able to activate old and new powers.
We believe the game may have some temporal element, as there is a moment when Link seems to control time.
Surprisingly, Nintendo revealed the development of a new game in the Metroid series. But this time, it’s 2D, in the best classic style of the NES and SNES era (But we still want to see Metroid Prime 4, which was announced but nothing was said at this E3).
The first new game in this franchise in 19 years takes place after the events of Metroid Fusion and, in this new adventure, Samus must explore the planet ZDR where he must face everything from alien threats to EMMI robots, capable of hunting to kill the bounty hunter with a single blow.
The visuals are very interesting and we hope that Metriod Dread has lots of weapons and moments of unforgettable challenges.
