It had been rumored that the recent Nintendo Direct broadcast might finally reveal the official title of the upcoming sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and indeed, the name has finally been revealed. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is the followup that fans have been waiting over five years to play. Nintendo gave us another glimpse at the game in a new trailer, as well:

Along with the name reveal, Nintendo also gave a release date of May 12, 2023. Naturally, that date could change, but the fact that Nintendo was willing to provide one at all suggests the company is fairly confident that Tears of the Kingdom will be completed and ready to ship by then. Nintendo didn’t offer too much in terms of story details, but here’s a blurb from the press release (and some official art):

In addition to the vast lands of Hyrule, the latest entry in the storied Legend of Zelda series will take you up into the skies and an expanded world that goes beyond that!

The release also refers to Link’s latest adventure as being “endless.” What could that mean? We’ll just have to wait until closer to May to find out more.
