However, Nintendo gave a presentation to its investors Wednesday and updated the launch schedule for some of its upcoming titles, as well as first and third-party games.

Other games with confirmed release dates include "Pokemon Legends: Arceus," "Triangle Strategy," "Kirby and the Forgotten Land," among others. Games like "Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope," "Splatoon 3" and "Bayonetta 3" were also confirmed to have a general 2022 release window.

Nintendo's recent confirmation about the sequel of "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" is great for its hopeful fans. And while there is no specific release date at the moment, the latest official statement from the company underlined that the game is still on the cards.

It is worth noting that this release window is not far from the company's initial release target, which was first set for sometime in the Summer of 2022 and later in November 2022. Also, Nintendo's latest statement eased fans' anxiety that its non-appearance at The Game Awards 2021 is not something that fans should be worried about.

Meanwhile, an industry insider who goes by the name Samus Hunter recently shared that Nintendo might provide another update about the much-awaited game sequel sometime in June 2022.

"Many asked about Zelda. Right now I don't have something concrete. Breath of the Wild received a full marketing campaign of roughly nine months, so if the sequel will follow the same pattern it's possible we might see it soon, but this is just speculation," said Samus Hunter. "But I expect something before June."
