2018 or 2019, but I'm thinking more of a topdown 2D Zelda

2021.



If we only include mainline Zeldas, so cutting out all the handheld and spinoff Zelda titles:
Legend of Zelda - 1986
Zelda 2: Adventure of Link - 1987
Zelda 3: Link to the Past - 1991
Ocarina of Time - 1998
Twilight Princess - 2006
Skyward Sword - 2011
Breath of the Wild - 2017

I'd say 2022 or 2023. It will probably launch new hardware. Perhaps Switch 2.0



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

2019, and it'll be a smaller type of game~!

Why does your list not have Majora's Mask in 2000 and Wind Waker in 2002?

2021 same engine, different artstyle, same freedom and new twist.



I would say that it is entirely possible for a Zelda title to release for the holiday season next year. They may release a top-down Zelda game that is a cross platform title: Switch/New 3DS (similar to Fire Emblem Warriors).

Or they could even release Skyward Sword HD, or a HD pack that includes the Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess HD. These HD versions could be optimised to play better than their Wii U counterparts. The Wii U versions both had frame rate fluctuations at certain parts of the game. The Wind Waker had frame rate issues with boat combat, whenever you were at the reef isles that had boats and cannons, the frames took a hit. Twilight Princess had frame rate issues in the Faron Woods when it needed to render that incredibly foggy area.
These issues could easily be fixed in a Switch version.



I said 2022 for the next main 3d zelda. I'd love to see a 2D zelda in say 2019 as long as they did something new with it and made it really interesting. Also I would pick up an HD Wind Waker in a second so hopefully that comes out too. I think a 2022 Zelda would be perfect. It'd be late in Switch's life, on an install base of many tens of millions, could stick with open world but do some twist on it to give it a whole new feeling from BotW. Maybe its just me but I've always wanted a war zelda game, where the game takes place as ganon is waging his war on hyrule and Link has to turn the tide of the war, infiltrate enemy camps at night, take down dungeon strongholds of ganon's, protect a busy hyrule castle that is under siege, etc.



I'm thinking 2019 for the next 2D Zelda, with SS HD for next year. If we do get a 2D game I hope it'll be a more traditional game (Items, dungeons, no durability or cooking, etc), since that's the kind of Zelda I like the most.



Whenever Nintendo can figure out what they're gonna do for a next console.
