Two iconic games from “The Legend of Zelda” series may be coming to the Nintendo Switch, which is amazing update for fans of the franchise. While the speculations are intriguing and not entirely accurate just yet, the most important information is that it appears that a Nintendo Direct will take place in September 2022, and that “Zelda” will play a significant role in it. While Nintendo officially is completely silent on the matter, leaks indicate that if you’re a fan of the brand, you should get ready to spend a lot of money.
The information was shared by Mike Minotti and Jeff Grubb on a recent episode of the podcast Last of the Nintendogs. The two engaged in extensive inside speculation about Nintendo and “Zelda” based on unnamed sources. The Nintendo Direct might be a full-fledged Direct with lots of fresh updates, a Mini Direct focused on “Zelda,” or even a Partner Direct, according to the podcast. Both Minotti and Grubb appear to believe that a significant Direct with “Zelda” taking center stage with other games is most likely. The eagerly anticipated “Metroid Prime 4” could be revealed in one of these additional announcements.
Although no specific dates for this rumored Nintendo Direct have been disclosed, Minotti and Grubb believe it will occur during the week beginning September 12. Many more games are almost certainly going to be featured if it’s a full Direct, but the duo didn’t make any further predictions outside “Zelda” and “Metroid Prime.” However, the news is unquestionably hype-worthy in terms of the “Zelda” series.
There’s a chance that Two Hits will return.
We’re sorry to disappoint you if you the thought that the two new “The Legend of Zelda” games would be brand-new releases; it appears that Nintendo is working on two Switch ports instead. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and also The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker are two well-known franchise-defining titles that Minotti and Grub hypothesized about.
Before being ported to the Wii U, the first of the two was first released in 2006 for the GameCube and Wii. With 8.85 million copies sold, “Twilight Princess” held the record for the best-selling “Zelda” game until “The Legend of Zelda: Known as “Breath of the Wild” (still a fan favorite) overtook it in 2018.
Another beloved game among fans is “The Wind Waker,” but it is older than “Twilight Princess.” The game, which was initially launched in 2002, was later made available on the Wii U through a high-definition remaster for the GameCube. While waiting for “Breath of the Wild”: Beyond Good and Evil 2, many fans are hoping to see these two titles adapted to the Nintendo Switch. Let’s hope Nintendo announces the good news quickly.
