Well, this particular gaming announcement stole the whole show.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, the long-awaited sequel to sequel to instant classic The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, is coming to Nintendo Switch on May 12, 2023. The game’s predecessor was released in March 2017 alongside the Switch’s debut (as well as the Wii U console), so it’s safe to say fans are eager for the next Zelda installment that was initially pushed back.
