A Zelda direct showing off ten minutes of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom  is taking place later today. Read on for information about how to watch the Breath of the Wild 2 gameplay reveal.

Earlier today on March 27, Nintendo announced The Legend of Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma would be revealing 10 minutes of new gameplay tomorrow on March 28. This should be the first major gameplay showcase we've seen for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom since it was unveiled years ago.

The new showcase will be premiering at 7 a.m. PT/10 a.m. ET/3 p.m. GMT. When that time rolls around tomorrow on March 28, you can catch the entire showcase right on Nintendo's YouTube channel, so be sure to tune in then to get up to speed on all the new gameplay details.

As we mentioned previously, this will be the first time we've had a deep-dive presentation on Tears of the Kingdom's gameplay. Whenever we've seen the sequel previously, it's only ever been in cinematic trailers that have offered up a brief few second of gameplay, interspersed with cutscene footage.

While we don't know exactly what we're getting, the smart money is on a Tears of the Kingdom Switch. Evidence of a new console has surfaced via multiple retailers, hinting at an imminent announcement and potentially a pretty quick release. Beyond that, the presentation should see Nintendo revealing brand new gameplay features for Tears of the Kingdom. We've already seen Link operating what looks to be flying vehicles, as well as makeshift cars, so we could be in for details on how our hero actually activates and uses these features when the new presentation rolls around.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom launches on May 12 for the Nintendo Switch.
