‘Breath of the Wild’ sequel ‘Tears of the Kingdom’ revealed by Nintendo

Nintendo announced the title of its upcoming Zelda game, “The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom,” during a Nintendo Direct stream Tuesday.

The much anticipated sequel to “Breath of the Wild” is slated to release May 12th, 2023. In a new trailer, the series’ iconic hero, Link, is depicted opening a massive door and dashing across a chain of ruin-filled islands floating high up in the clouds.

The islands appear to have a rich, diverse landscape — some green and tangled with large, gnarled tree roots, and others large enough to host entire mountain ranges.

Aerial travel seems to be a core mechanic in the game, as Link is shown jumping from a great height and landing on the back of a giant stone glider.

Other notable reveals from the Nintendo Direct include “Octopath Traveler II” (releasing on February 24, 2023), “Fire Emblem Engage” (January 20, 2023), “Pikmin 4” (2023) and “Fitness Boxing Fist of the North Star” (March 2023).

“Fist of the North Star" is a cult classic manga that is basically “Mad Max” if Max was played by a 220-pound version of Bruce Lee who can make his enemies’ heads explode with a finger jab.

It’s also the source of the “ATATATATATATA” meme, which some gamers will no doubt recreate through the fitness game.
