A new Zelda game has been in the works for years, but when will it hit the shelves? The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has been officially confirmed to launch on May 12, 2023. But what exactly will it be?

It will most likely be a sequel to the original game, Breath of the Wild. If you’re not familiar with the original, it is a game that lets players roam the open world of Hyrule, exploring its vast expanse.

There have been a lot of rumors about the next Zelda title, but a lot of them have been nonsense. However, Nintendo isn’t one to rush their titles.

In June of 2019, Nintendo released a teaser trailer for the new game. This teaser contained a few new elements that have been rumored for the game, including a playable Zelda.

The first thing you need to know about the teaser is that it’s only 86 seconds long. That may not seem like much, but when it comes to a video game, a little goes a long way.

In addition, the teaser isn’t just a marketing gimmick. Instead, it offers a sneak peek at gameplay footage.

Another piece of information about the teaser is that it was screened at the E3 event in June. At the show, Nintendo also showed off a mysterious new trailer.

Although this new Zelda game will likely be a standalone title, the teaser does point to its possible inclusion in a future version of the Nintendo Switch.
