Zelda’s dominance in this trailer may hint to her inclusion as a playable character, if not an outright two-player mode, but Nintendo did not offer any gameplay details in this reveal.
LOS ANGELES—Nintendo announced during a Nintendo Direct presentation Tuesday morning that a sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now in development. No release date or target window was announced.
A short teaser trailer for the game showed Zelda and Link exploring a dark cave together, lit only by torchlight, in an art style that seemed extremely similar to the Breath of the Wild engine. That suggests the possibility of a two-player mode for the upcoming sequel, though Nintendo offered absolutely nothing in the way of gameplay details. The teaser also included a zombie-style creature that turned his head with a violent cracking sound, seemingly in response to their presence.
Nintendo also announced a slight delay for its previously announced Animal Crossing game, now titled New Horizons and targeting a March 20, 2020 launch. A short trailer showed a camping theme for the game, with your tent-residing villager building fires on the beach, fishing, hanging laundry out to dry, and rolling up snowballs in the winter months. Tom Nook is also there to demand an egregious payment for your stay and help you craft items at a workbench as well. Shots of multiple villagers running around the same campsite also suggest that multiplayer gameplay will be supported.
