To believe the YouTube comments of this Nintendo Direct, there was almost a popular uprising.

Nothing on the Switch Pro,

Animal Crossing



, and Internet users were ready to walk on the Bastille.

Fortunately, Nintendo had saved the best for the end of its presentation of E3 2021, with the first real trailer for the sequel to

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

, expected in 2022. The Japanese manufacturer is also playing the card of nostalgia, with the release of a

Game and Watch

electronic game

bringing together the first three Zeldas for the series' 35th anniversary.

And in the absence of

Metroid Prime 4

, we discovered a

Metroid Dread

in old-fashioned 2D.

Link takes to the skies in

Breath of the Wild


Return to Hyrule - and the skies above - in this first look at gameplay for the sequel to The Legend of #Zelda: Breath of the Wild, planned for release on #NintendoSwitch in 2022.

We thought he was going to do it again last February with a new

Skyward Sword HD



But no, Eiji Aonuma has unveiled the first trailer with gameplay for the sequel to

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild


Which therefore still has no name, but at least an exit horizon, in 2022. Link in free fall, descent in a kite, islands and Hyrule castle floating in the sky ... This episode takes shape height for increased freedom.

Metroid Dread, homecoming (trailer here)

The Arlesienne

Metroid Prime 4 -

announced in 2017 and whose development resumed from zero in 2019 - continues.

But to wait, Nintendo has in its boxes

Metroid Dread

, which is the first 2D episode in 19 years.

It blasts all the time and arrives on October 8.

A Game & Watch Zelda for the 35th anniversary of the series

Pay your old age.

For the 35th anniversary of the series, Nintendo is releasing a Game & Watch (the ancestor of portable consoles).

We find the original game,

The Legend of Zelda

, released in 1986, then its very divisive sequel with its platform phases,

The Adventure of Link

, and the episode Game Boy

Link's Awakening


Released on November 12.

The rest: 





Shin Megami Tensei V

and portages

Launched four years ago, the Switch will once again have a line-up aimed at a large audience. Kazuya, from


, joins

Super Smash Bros Ultimate

. We can experience the crazy micro-games of

WarioWare: Get it Together

in co-op or knock out monsters in the

Doom Eternal's Ancient Gods


. The RPG

Shin Megami Tensei V

features a tantalizing combat system by recruiting and fusing monsters. And speaking of bestiary, trainers will have a blast with

Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin

. Finally, the Switch will welcome with a little delay the ports of

Tony Hawk Pro Skater

1 and 2 and

Life is Strange Remastered Collection

but also the next episode

Life is Strange: True Colors


Enough to wait until 2022, with the sequel to


, the next


, and, perhaps, the Switch Pro.
