The Next Legend Of Zelda Game Is Already In Development
With Breath of the Wild taking home top honors at this year’s Game Awards, Nintendo and the development team are surely feeling pretty great right about now. All in all, that was a good night for them, especially considering they released the game’s Champions’ Ballad DLC that very evening. Of course, the celebration hasn’t lasted terribly long, as development has already begun on the next Legend of Zelda title.
Confirmed by Breath of the Wild producer Eiji Aonuma in a recent book that was released about 2017’s Game of the Year, the next Legend of Zelda title is now being worked on. Source Gaming was the first to break the news on Twitter after getting their hands on the BotW book that was just released in Japan. Among the photos that they were showing off, they released the following nugget of info:

As they point out in a tweet shortly after the one seen above, this shouldn’t really come as a surprise, considering development began on Breath of the Wild shortly after Skyward Sword. Of course, it’s too early to tell when the next Legend of Zelda will arrive, but with over five years between the release of the above titles, it’s going to be some time before we see it.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is currently available on the Nintendo Switch and Wii U. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming news, check out the following:
