Zelda to star in new The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom game

Finally, Zelda herself will be the main protagonist in a mainline game in the series named after her. (Not counting CD-i games.) Yesterday, Nintendo surprise announced The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom coming already this September to Switch:

Looks pretty darn great. Like a cross between the Link’s Awakening remake with some of the open ended puzzle solving ideas from Tears of the Kingdom.

While I like that the gameplay isn’t just palette swapped Zelda for Link hack and slash, I do hope that Zelda is actually able to occasionally solve some of her problems by murdering a bunch of moblins with a sword. Pretty excited for this one, might be one last great hurrah for the Switch before the next console comes out in 2025.
