A New Zelda Is Already In Development, Of Course
Nintendo is working on the next Legend of Zelda game.
The Legend of Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma has confirmed that his team has begun work on a new entry in the long-running and critically acclaimed series. According to Game Informer, Aonuma shared this update in the new Breath of the Wild artbook, Master Works.
The fact that a new game is in development is all we have to go on right now. There is no word on if this a new entry for mobile or console, or any other details for that matter. That Nintendo would produce a new Zelda title is of course expected, given that it is one of the company's biggest, best-known, and best-selling franchises.
As Game Informer explains, development on Breath of the Wild began right after Skyward Sword launched in 2011. So it appears Nintendo is taking a similar approach this time. Game Informer chatted with Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto at E3 this year, and the legendary designer talked about how Nintendo wants to release Zelda games faster.
Breath of the Wild is Nintendo's best-selling Switch game, with sales standing at 4.7 million units by Nintendo's latest count. That is an incredibly strong sales figure when you consider the Switch itself has sold 10 million units.
In other Zelda news, Breath of the Wild's newest expansion, Champions' Ballad, launched earlier this month. It adds new story content, along with more weapons and items. For more, check out GameSpot's video review here.
