The presentation will be the first major, uninterrupted chunk of Tears of the Kingdom gameplay we’ve seen, with Nintendo previously only sharing shorter clips in various trailers.
While we’ve done our best to break these down and extract every piece of possible information, seeing an extended look at the gameplay alongside commentary from Aonuma will shine a whole new light on the highly anticipated Breath of the Wild sequel.
We already know that Tears of the Kingdom will have the largest file size of any first party Nintendo Switch game, include classic enemies from Ocarina of Time, and cost a heftier than usual $70 to match its scope, but the main reason fans are excited is because Breath of the Wild is considered one of the best games of all time.
In our 10/10 review, IGN said: “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is evocative, exhilarating, and a masterclass in open-world design.”
