While they didn't show up in the Direct, Nintendo has confirmed some new amiibo for later in 2019 and early next year!
Nintendo closed out its E3 Direct presentation with a massive tease: a sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. According to IGN, "Breath of the Wild" was announced in 2014 before releasing in 2017, so it's possible fans might not see the game until 2022. The Japanese gaming giant also showed footage of a lot of new games for the Nintendo Switch, including Luigi's Mansion 3 and Link's Awakening, plus Animal Crossing New Horizons has been delayed until March 2020. No concrete release date, title or storyline was revealed. Or maybe even a Holiday 2020 or 2021 release. A definitive edition of Dragon Quest XI and stylish mech battler Daemon X Machina will both be out in September, and old-school Sega series Panzer Dragoon makes an unexpected return on Switch this winter. Ultimate, two new paid downloadable fighters will be available: Hero from DRAGON QUEST this summer and Banjo-Kazooie this fall.
The Legend of Zelda made three appearances, first in the form of a remake.
