Legend of Zelda News in Bulk

The Legend of Zelda series got the most love taking up the entire final part of the presentation today.

Hyrule Warriors Expansion Pass got more details shown showing that the first part will go live in Jun and the second in November. It also briefly showed new characters and weapons like Link using robotic arms and Zelda looking absolutely badass on a motorcycle.

They also showcased some footage from Skyward Sword HD but haven’t told us anything we didn’t already know. They showed off the fact that you can either play with motion controls or by flicking the joystick to swing.

A cool little bonus was they showed off a new tiny Game + Watch handheld. This little handheld allowed you to play Legend of Zelda, Legend of Zelda 2: Link’s Adventure, the Game Boy version of Link’s Awakening and a special version of the Game + Watch classic “Vermin” where Mr. Game and Watch is replaced by Link. It’s coming out Nov 12th and I will have a hard time not getting it.

Finally more footage was shown of Breath of the Wild 2. The world seems to be expanded to include several massive islands floating in the sky including the newly floating Hyrule Castle. New enemies got shown including a really cool one where it was one of the slowly moving rock golems only doubling as a fort for smaller enemies who built a base on its back. They also showed a bizarre new power for Link where he shot into the sky and then turned into green energy, phrasing through the ceiling and reforming on the ground above. No exact date was given but they said hopefully 2022.

So that’s what we got for now. What did you think? What was your favorite part of this year’s E3 2021 Nintendo Direct? Let us know in the comments below.
