Your post could age like milk, so you better hope that today's Direct doesn't show us a Tears of the Kingdom that is an evolution of Skyward Sword rather than a better Breath of the Wild.
During the past 25 years the Zelda series went up and down. Ocarina of Time (well-received) was followed up* by The Wind Waker (not well-received) which led to Twilight Princess (well-received), followed by Skyward Sword (not well-received) which led to Breath of the Wild (so well-received like it hadn't been the case since the original The Legend of Zelda). Nintendo has to buck this trend for once.
*I am not counting Majora's Mask as the next big Zelda game because its working title was Zelda Gaiden (read: sidestory), hence why it lacked any reference to Ganon.
Guess I'll have to take the risk of making early risky predictions. Someone's gotta take on tbone's way !
Though we'll see after the Direct I might amend my prediction, just as I might not.
