Over the years we’ve seen many instances in which Nintendo resorted to a very common strategy in the gaming industry: releasing a very successful title followed by a sequel using many of the tools created for its predecessor. Engine, assets, animation, and other elements are some of the things that are brought back.

In today’s video, I decided to take a look at other direct sequels that Nintendo produced in the past, analyzing the different strategies and trying to see where the new Zelda may fit into that.
