Will Breath of the Wild 2 Be Shown At Nintendo Direct E3 2021?

Nintendo are one of the last companies to hold a conference at this year's E3 so their showcase has to be a big one. We can expect to see updates from announced games, new games and maybe something a little different.

One of the biggest games we know they're working on is the next Breath of the Wild title. Maybe we could finally see a release date. Here's what we know about it.

When Is the E3 2021 Nintendo Direct?

Luckily, the Nintendo Direct is just around the corner, taking place at 9 am PT / 5 pm BST today June 15th.

The presentation will last 40 minutes in total and will talk exclusively about "Nintendo Switch software", shutting down the rumours of a Nintendo Switch Pro announcement. This being said, there should still be plenty to get excited about.

Will They Talk About Breath of the Wild 2?

Although we skipped E3 last year, the one Nintendo was at in 2019 featured our very first look at Breath of the Wild 2. They have a habit of dropping big news during these events so it wouldn't be a surprise to see an update on the game.

This being said, they said the event would focus on games mostly releasing in 2021. Breath of the Wild 2 is certainly big enough to justify talking about, even with a release date that is far away. Either that or we will see a release date this year - very unlikely, even for Nintendo.

We know that the game has been in development for at least two years now, likely one or two more than that given they revealed it then. Breath of the Wild 2 likely took precedent after the DLC was finished for the first game. Hopefully, we could get a really good announcement later tonight.
