    First of all, dont think im already hyped for a Zelda after botw, its just a long term though.
    so, why im worried a little is because we had lot of news about botw for the past six years, yes it has been announced in 2011.
    Also, they started working on it in 2010.
    why im worried is because we had no news at all about a potential Zelda that would use all the potential of the switch.
    lets talk frankly, Botw is just a port, it doesnt show the full potential of the switch.
    as i said, they need more than one year to make a such amazing game.

    so, are you worried too that we might not have a new zelda for 2018?

    Definitely not in 2018. Maybe in the later parts of the system's cycle (ala Skyward Sword)

    I thought BotW was worked on for the passed 4 years?

    Maybe not 2018, but 2019. And I'm willing to bet anyone with a wallet that it'll be a low effort sequel using all the same assets.

    remember that ninty's original plan was to release it in 2014, instead we just got a small footage at the e3

    It probably does flesh out the Switch, since it runs at only 900p at 30fps. That IS the Switch's potential, since every game has to be optimized for the portable mode.

    If there is another one in 2018 it won't be a main game in the series it'll be some crappy spinoff or something like Hyrule Warriors 2 (which wasn't totally crappy, just really repetitive)

    Here's hoping we get digital ports of Link The Faces of Evil, Zelda The Wand of Gamelon and Zelda's Adventure. Of course the entire world feels the same way as me about these 3 gems.

    There are two scenarios:
    (1) BotW is a WiiU game ported and updated for the Switch (similar to Twilight Princess). This means NX will have its own Zelda sooner than later. Perhaps 2019.
    or
    (2) BotW is a Switch game also made to work on the WiiU, in which case we will not see another Zelda until the end of the Switch's lifecycle (see WiiU).

    In either scenario, the WiiU is the only Nintendo console (home and handheld) to not feature a unique Zelda game that hasn't been simultaneously released on another system. Warriors doesn't count as a Zelda game, so stfu.

    Thank god for auto-merge. I believe they will do this, but maybe on the WiiU. I know BotW is the last Nintendo game on the WiiU, but a remaster wouldn't be a new game per say....

    I'm sure, like with Mario Kart, they'll bring a new Zelda to the system if it sells well. I hope they bring ALTTP remake first, though...

    Maybe SS HD in 2019, a new Zelda game in 2020

    BotW DLC in 2018 that features Switch-Only content. Other than that it would have to be a new title or remaster with Switch features built in.

    Perhaps 2018 but I will bet for 2019. I am not worried at all. Why should I ? Nintendo just wants your money and not your worrying. :rofl2:

    I'm guessing effort-filled sequel, but yes with same assets most likely. They're proud of perfecting the CEL-shaded art style

    You'll probably have remakes and smaller Zelda titles first. Like the ones normally find on their handhelds.

    I just want Anti-aliasing on the Switch. I don't get why Nintendo negates that graphical feature in all their graphics chipsets. Even 2x or 4x would help immensely without impacting performance.
