The follow-up to the landmark Nintendo Switch game will has also got a new release date: May 12, 2023.

The trailer was released today as part of Nintendo Direct and revealed a small amount of gameplay footage. In it, we get another peek at the new Sheikah Slate power, which looks like it reverses time. We also got some footage of Link scaling walls and objects in the sky.

The official press release for 'Tears of the Kingdom' says: "In addition to the vast lands of Hyrule, the latest entry in the storied 'Legend of Zelda' series will take you up into the skies and an expanded world that goes beyond that! Look forward to Link’s massive adventure starting again when 'The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom', the sequel to 'The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild', drops for Nintendo Switch on May 12, 2023.”

It feels like a long, long time since the game was first announce in 2019. It's fair to say a lot has happened in between now and then, but we now finally have a concrete release date.

Last year, we got a stunning first look trailer at the upcoming game at E3. Originally due to release this year, it was announced in March that the game was getting delayed.
