We bring you all the major reveals from the E3 2021 Nintendo Direct. So, did we get to see The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 and Metroid Prime 4? Well, one out of two ain’t bad.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2

Announced two years ago, ahead of today there was very little we actually knew about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 (the working title is ‘Sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’). Not that we now know a whole heap, as we’re talking about a pretty quick 1:20 or so of game footage -- we do get to see Link explore and glide around structures that sit amongst the clouds above Hyrule. That is, floating cities and the like. Yeah, it’s the sort of addition that feels truly exciting -- and adds to the already impressive freedom and scope found in the original. Visually this also looks like a cut above, with the painterly look dialled up some with characters and objects and things like castle walls (Hyrule Castle baby) packing some serious detail. Oh, and we also got a release window - 2022.

Metroid Dread

No Metroid Prime 4, boo. But wait, what’s this? The first side-scrolling Metroid title in 19 years? Metroid Dread follows on from Metroid Fusion where a faster, more agile Samus descends upon planet ZDR after the Galactic Federation picks up mysterious signals. Samus’ arrival reveals a planet being overrun by an alien menace, while DNA extracting robots called E.M.M.I. have become corrupt and are now hunting Samus down. As with any great Intergalactic Bounty Hunter story though, it’s time to find those new E.M.M.I. countering skills and upgrades to take down all threats and work out what’s really going on, on planet ZDR. Metroid Dread is out this October 8 on Nintendo Switch.

Ooooo! I managed to survive this timeline long enough for Link to eclipse the plumber.

No Prime is a bummer.

Is it just me, or are side scrollers somehow less compelling these days? I haven't been able to get into one for a few years now, even this one looks pretty cool but I still kind of slide past it in a wave of meh.

Agreed... but this looked better as the trailer went on... and the last one was that remake of the game boy game...
