2021 is The Legend of Zelda’s 35th anniversary year, and fans have been expecting a number of releases and announcements in celebration of the occasion, especially seeing as Nintendo did similar things for Super Mario last year. Skyward Sword HD is launching for the Switch next month, but since the beginning of the year, leaks and rumours have suggested that announcements will also be made for Switch ports of The Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess HD.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like that’s going to happen. At yesterday’s E3 2021 Nintendo Direct, while announcing the new Game and Watch for The Legend of Zelda, series producer Eiji Auonuma confirmed that currently, Nintendo has no specific plans for any other Switch games in the series beyond what’s already been announced.

“This year the original Legend of Zelda game reaches its 35th anniversary. While we don’t have any campaigns or other Nintendo Switch games planned, we’ve been working on this Game and Watch system as a special item to help mark the occasion and reflect fondly on the earliest days of The Legend of Zelda,” Auonuma said.

Meanwhile, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is receiving additional content soon, while it’s been confirmed that the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – or whatever it ends up being calledwill launch in 2022.
