The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will be the last major game for the Nintendo Switch, claims industry analysts.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is the direct sequel to 2017’s Breath of the Wild.
However, it seems that the highly anticipated sequel might be the last major release for Nintendo’s hybrid console.
Will the sequel be Zelda’s hurrah on the Switch?
As reported by TheGamer, two industry insiders claim that Tears of the Kingdom will be the last “significant” release for the Nintendo Switch.
While on the topic of what’s in store for the future of Nintendo, the Head of GamesIndustry.biz Christopher Dring replied to a Twitter user saying: “I have heard that after Zelda, Nintendo doesn’t have a significant game for quite some time.”
What’s more, VGC reporter Andy Robinson, corroborated those reports and retweeted a December 2022 clip by Digital Foundry discussing a future Nintendo console.
“From what I’m hearing I wouldn’t be surprised if Nintendo starts talking about new hardware by 2024,” retweeted Robinson. “I’m not convinced another huge first-party game other than Zelda is left on Switch (usual Nintendo prediction caveats apply).”
Reports of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom potentially being the last significant title for the Switch are perhaps backed up by a recent report that Nintendo won’t be releasing a new console in 2023.
However, it was also suggested in the same report that the new console could arrive in 2024.
When is The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom release date?
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom has a release date of May 12th, 2023 for the Nintendo Switch.
