Nintendo dropped a bombshell at the end of the E3 2019 Direct conference, confirming that Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 is in development for Nintendo Switch.

It was also announced that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - the critically acclaimed low-fantasy game from Poland's CD Projekt Red - will be released on Switch later in 2019; other older games getting a Switch re-release include Resident Evil 5 and 6, and Alien Isolation.

Nintendo also previewed the game with a new story trailer, teasing a unsafe new enemy for Link and Zelda. Until then, have a look at the trailer below to see it for yourself. And finally, the teaser for the sequel to Breath of the Wild appeared to show Zelda and Link adventuring together on the day that Hyrule died.

Speaking to IGN, Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma revealed some of the games that influenced Breath of the Wild and its sequel. Or maybe even a Holiday 2020 or 2021 release.

We're assuming we're going to get more information about the known upcoming titles from the company - Fire Emblem: Three Houses launches this summer, we've not heard from Bayonetta 3 for a while and we're hoping there will be some Metroid, too. "What we showed you now is a little darker", Aonuma added.

Though we do know Geralt is making his way to the Nintendo Switch, we don't know when exactly yet.
