Nintendo Announces The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom Game With Zelda as Main Character

posted on by Alex Mateo
Game launches for Switch on September 26

Nintendo announced on Tuesday during its Nintendo Direct livestream a new game in The Legend of Zelda series titled The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom. This is the first mainline game in the series that stars Zelda as the main playable character, as opposed to Link. The game will launch for Nintendo Switch on September 26.

The story follows Princess Zelda, who meets the fairy Tri, after rifts have taken over Hyrule and the hero Link. Tri gives Zelda the Trirod, which allows her to create imitations of items, called echoes. For instance, she can create echoes of a table at any time to give herself a platform to climb. Zelda can also create echoes of monsters.

The top-down game features an artstyle similar to the remake of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening.

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening remake game shipped for Switch in September 2019. The original game launched for Game Boy in Japan and the West in 1993. The game then received an updated Game Boy Color release in 1998.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Switch game launched in May 2023. The sequel game was previously delayed from 2022 to spring 2023 in order to extend development time. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild launched for Switch and Nintendo Wii U in March 2017.
