Development for the Next Zelda Game Has Begun

As if there was any doubt, we’ve learned that Nintendo has begun work on the next Legend of Zelda game.

The news comes from a note in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Master Works (via Game Informer), where The Legend of Zelda series producer and manager Eiji Aonuma said both he and his team have started development on the next game in the series.

It’s worth pointing out that Aonuma previously stated that open world design in the Zelda series is here to stay, and that the team working on games like A Link Between Worlds will remain separate, and that 2D Zelda games can still happen on the Switch.

In related news, the second and final expansion “The Champions Ballad” for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now available. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is currently available for the Nintendo Switch and Wii U. In case you missed it, you can find our thorough video and written review for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild here.
