-One significant bummer: The new Animal Crossing game, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, won't be out until March 20, 2020, which is later than expected.

Today during their annual Treehouse live post-Direct E3 stream, Nintendo gave us some more details for Link's Awakening on Switch.

It's probably gonna take a while for this to game to even come out, so that leaves us plenty of time to speculate.

New "Super Smash Bros".

Gods And Monsters Is A New Adventure From Assassin's Creed Odyssey's Creators

Nintendo's E3 2019 presentation was dominated by giants of the Japanese video game world - not just Nintendo's own Pokémon, Smash Bros, Animal Crossing and Zelda series, but Square Enix's Dragon Quest and Mana roleplaying series and a range of anime-styled and mech-themed games.

Nintendo's statement leaves it open to calling this game something besides Breath of the Wild 2, though hasn't revealed an official name and there's very little story to suggest what it may be called in the end. Zelda does have a new haircut, and in this universe, I'd bet reincarnations are more common than haircuts, but feel free to disagree.

The Hyrule from Breath of the Wild was shown, but it appears to be getting torn apart by this revived skeleton and the mysterious mist oozing around him.

You can check out the trailer for the BOTW sequel down below. Nintendo's Bill Trinen confirmed that it's a true sequel, not DLC, after the Nintendo Direct livestream.
