Greetings, and welcome back to WIRED's ongoing E3 coverage! What have you missed since yesterday? A lot, actually. The bulk of the news came from Nintendo's presentation, so we'll start there, but there's plenty more to get through. Here are the big stories—and the big absences—from the last 24 hours at gaming's biggest confab.
Easily the biggest news to come out of E3 yesterday was Nintendo's announcement that the company is already working on a sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. What's intriguing about the teaser Nintendo released at the show is the huge tonal shift from the previous game. It's Zelda and Link, in an eerie underground crypt, accessing some forbidden technology and energy source radiating from the skeleton of a long-dead royal. Something happens, Link seems to be injured, and then ... ? Who knows what happens next.
Lot - Eerie - Game - Sequel - World
It looks a lot more eerie than the last game, while seemingly being a direct sequel, which isn't super common in the world of Zelda. Also, a more active Princess is exciting, especially when we see Link possibly out of commission. Playable Zelda? I mean, probably not. But there's a chance.
Do you love calm villages with happy animals and an impeccably decorated house? Then you're probably eagerly anticipating the next Animal Crossing game. Well, guess what? We have good news and bad news. The good news is that the game has a name: Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The bad news is that it's been postponed to March 20, 2020.
