These characters include Link, Samus, Pit, the Belmont characters and all the heroes of Dragon Quest, and the event will begin on May 28, 2021. While Nintendo has not mentioned much about the Legend of Zelda 35th anniversary outside of the release of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, it's nice to see the franchise's 35th anniversary being explicitly celebrated. At the time of this writing, we still don't know whether or not Metroid Prime 4 will make an appearance at E3, but it's on our list of things we hope to see at E3.
