This afternoon we were finally able to know the plans of Nintendo for E3 2021. For now we only know that it will offer a Nintendo Direct of about 40 minutes with Switch games that will be released “mainly” in 2021 followed by a three-hour Treehouse: Live with gameplays.
Well, if we look at one of the games most anticipated by the igamesnews, the most anticipated according to our last iGamesNews Awards, it seems that the fans are not very hopeful to see news of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2
When the first installment was in development and was the most anticipated game of the moment, Nintendo made sure back in 2016 to point out that there would be many new features of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in the E3 2016

Now Nintendo has not said anything, so we do not know if there will be news or not of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 in the Direct this year. The fact that Nintendo has not spoken or advanced it points out that there won’t be.
Nevertheless, there is still hope: Nintendo has mentioned games “mainly” from 2021 for the live, so it may be that Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, which is likely not to be released this year because it has not yet received news since 2019, it could have room. Or maybe it will be launched this year and we are all in for a surprise.
In addition, Nintendo is also expected to not focus its E3 2021 as much on a single game as it did in 2016, so it may appear at least briefly alongside other announcements that will undoubtedly delight us. Finally, we must not forget that, in the announcement of Skyward Sword HD a few months ago, Nintendo shared that they hoped to be able to offer more of the sequel to Breath of the Wild. this year, and E3 is certainly a great time to do it.
What do you think about that? We read you in the comments.
