Will Nintendo get five Zelda games out for Switch this year?

The Zelda series is one of the most successful brands from Nintendo. In addition to a sequel to “Breath of the Wild”, we could see a few surprises for the franchise this year.

Zelda fans have been waiting for the next part of the Breath of the Wild series for the Nintendo Switch for a while . Apparently they can look forward to more Zelda titles this year. The Zelda franchise will celebrate its 35th birthday in 2021. A reason to breathe new life into the classics?

Notes on several remakes

In 2020 the Super Mario franchise celebrated its 35th birthday. In this context, Nintendo brought, among other things, three Super Mario classics as Super Mario 3D All-Stars in a collection on the Switch. The company has not yet announced any specific plans to do the same at Zelda. However, there are initial indications that a Zelda collection could come.

In Australia, Nintendo had two Zelda titles trademarked at the beginning of February. These are The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (2002) and The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass (2007). Only at the end of December 2020 did the company register The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (1998) and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword (2011) . The interesting thing about it: these are newly registered titles, the original trademarks remain unaffected.

So far, few Zelda games for the Switch

Since these are new entries, this could be an indication that Nintendo is working on remakes of the games for the Switch. With Link’s Awakening , which originally appeared in 1993 for the Game Boy, Nintendo has already brought a remake to the Switch. So far, there is only one title, Breath of the Wild , that was actually developed for the Switch. The game started in 2017 as a launch title together with the console. Nintendo Switch Online subscribers can also play some Zelda classics such as Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link and A Link to the Past for free.

Incidentally, Nintendo could come up with more hits this year. Because we are not only facing the 35th anniversary of the Zelda series. The Pokemon franchise is also celebrating its 25th birthday and Donkey Kong is turning 40.
