E3 2021 is approaching, and fast. The show will begin on June 12 and run until June 15. Nintendo will have its presentation on the last day, June 15 at 9 a.m. PT / 12 p.m. ET. It will be a 40 minute presentation and Nintendo promises to show what they have in store for us in the second half of 2021 for the Nintendo Switch. While there are a lot of rumors going around, we have our own opinion on the potential announcements that will take place when they are presented. Nintendo always has a few surprises up its sleeve, and with Zelda’s As 35th anniversary takes place this year, it is finally time for them to commemorate it. And they will. Here’s our forecast for E3 2021 Nintendo Switch.
Nintendo at # E32021: 15/6, 9h PT!
Tune in for a #NintendoDirect with about 40 minutes of information exclusively devoted #NintendoSwitch software, mostly released in 2021, followed by around 3 hours of gameplay in #NintendoTreehouseLive | E3 2021.

Breath of the Wild 2 will be released in 2021
There has long been speculation as to when Breath of the Wild 2 would release for the Nintendo Switch, but we’re pretty confident that Nintendo will announce its release in 2021 and that will be a focal point of their E3 presentation. There is no better way to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the Zelda franchise than to release the sequel to what is arguably the greatest game of all time. Oh, and Ganondorf is back! We can’t wait!
Nintendo will announce a Zelda 35th anniversary collection
With Skyward Sword HD go out and in all probability Breath of the Wild 2, it’s time for a Zelda anthology collection. This is likely to happen. In February, two prominent gaming journalists said that Twilight Princess HD and Wind Waker HD will arrive on the Nintendo Switch. All they would need would be to port the games to the system; that would be a fairly easy feat. Additionally, we anticipate that Nintendo will carry Ocarina of time 3D in high definition on the Switch as well, freeing them up in one bundle for $ 60.
Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Will be announced
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is one of the best games for the Nintendo Switch, and Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition, in turn, is also one of the best games for the system, despite being an HD remaster. With the appearance of the “Conduit”, which is essentially the Zohar of the old Xeno games, and the appearance of KOS-MOS in current Monolith Soft artwork, we anticipate it will be featured in the game. Characters will include the main characters from both Chronicles of Xenoblade and Xenoblade Chronicles 2, who are incredibly loved. It will be Nintendo’s surprise at E3. Many will not see it coming. It has been almost four years since Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and the deductible is late for the next deductible payment.
Metroid Prime 4 Will be shown
It seems like forever since Metroid Prime 4 was announced and then, shortly thereafter, resumed development from scratch. After a number of years, we believe that Retro Studios and Nintendo will finally have something to show. It won’t come out this year, but it will wet Metroid the appetite of the fans. Bayonet 3, however, is unlikely to be shown in our opinion.
An original 2D Zelda Will be announced
Now we have no internal knowledge, but we are predicting that a brand new 2D Zelda the game will be announced for the Nintendo Switch. With the potential release of all 3D titles, Zelda needs something fresh. a link between worlds was the pinnacle of Zelda, and the remake of Link’s Awakening showed that 2D Zelda is still viable. It won’t be a remake of any current Zelda game or A link to the past, which we would personally like, but that’s basically what a link between worlds has been. Now, this game will not be released in 2021 and will most likely be a mid to late 2022 release. Zelda will have enough on his plate for this year. A whole new 2D Zelda is very likely in the near future, and we expect Nintendo to unveil it at E3 2021.
