We have about a million questions about the Breath of the Wild sequel after Nintendo revealed it with a teaser, but one question we can answer right away is, "What does that reverse music sound like when it is being played properly?" You can check out the video above to hear what the teaser's music sounds like played in reverse, but it doesn't shed a lot of new light on the sequel. It sounds like it could be new Breath of the Wild music played in reverse to help lend to the teaser's overall creepy tone.

Nintendo ended its E3 Directo conference with a big surprise: a sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. We knew a new Zelda game was in development, but getting to see a glimpse of it, and learning that it is a Breath of the Wild sequel was very unexpected. In the teaser, Link and Zelda are both exploring some kind of cave, where a demented-looking sage becomes animated, complete with red, glowing eyes. It never becomes graphic, but it's certainly unsettling in the best way.
That's all the info we currently have on the game, with no subtitle, release date, or even a release year. It'll be a while before we get more details on the game, but it's very exciting to have this game confirmed for development.
Nintendo just announced that the remake of the action RPG Trials of Mana is getting a global release in early 2020, while the newly revealed Collection of Mana is going to be available later today on the Nintendo eShop. Though many have played Secret of Mana, the sequel was never released in the US.
Expect more impressions from the Game Informer crew later in the week in our ongoing E3 2019 coverage.
John Romero is probably best known for his time at Id Software and Ion Storm crafting some of gaming's best (DOOM, Quake, Wolfenstein) shooters as well as some of its most infamous (Daikatana). Today, Romero revealed a new game his company, Romero Games, is making with Paradox, and it's a far cry from such shooters.
Empire Of The Sun is a "character-driven" strategy game set in 1920s Chicago. You play one of 14 district bosses vying for power in the violent time of the Prohibition. Romero Games promises a city filled with a cast of characters you can "schmooze, coerce, seduce, threaten, or [kill] to get your way." Outside of diplomacy and bribery, Empire Of Sin will feature turn-based combat when disputes have to be settled with more than words.
We'll have more on Empire Of Sin later in the week. For more on John Romero, read all about the new Doom level collection he put together.
Alien: Isolation is one of the most beloved survival horror experiences of the last few years, and now it's coming to Switch.

One of the most-requested characters in the Super Smash Bros. series has been Banjo-Kazooie. Despite the series debuting on Nintendo 64, the fact that Microsoft now owns developer Rare made it feel less likely. However, the Nintendo Direct at E3 finally gave fans what they have been wanting.
Banjo-Kazooie play as one character and bring what appears to be a new Gruntilda-focused stage. The new Banjo-Kazooie DLC comes to Super Smash Bros Ultimate this fall.
