Nintendo Debuts New Breath of the Wild 2 Trailer at E3 2021

The exact release date for The Breath of the Wild 2 is still up in the air, but we've got a shiny new trailer to compensate.

Breath of the Wild 2 releases in 2022, Nintendo announced during its E3 2021 presentation alongside a new trailer. While we still don’t have a specific release date or even an official title, the BotW 2 trailer gives us over a minute of evocative new footage.

The trailer shows Zelda falling into a void, then cuts to Link above the clouds. It’s not just a tie-in with Skyward Sword though. This is very much Breath of the Wild‘s Hyrule with ruins, paragliders, and even Bokoblin fortresses built on top of Talus monsters.

It looks as if we’ll be needing the glider more than usual too. Hyrule in the sky is broken up into dozens of island chains and opportunities for Link to use his new power-ups.

We’re not quite sure what those are yet, but we saw Link’s arm tainted by the whatever-it-is underneath Hyrule Castle and featuring a fragmented look. In one scene, Link interacts with a water droplet and immediately transports up onto a pillar and through the stone, so it seems Nintendo has some big surprises in store.
