A new Legend of Zelda game has been released. The highly-anticipated sequel Breath of the Wild 2 (or BOTW 2) has a release date – or, at least, a release window, as Nintendo has confirmed that it is coming to the.
The Breath of the Wild 2 world was shown off even more during Nintendo’s E3 2021 Direct, which seems to take place in much the same place as the 2017 version, but with a drastic difference in scenery. In the new trailer below, we see that floating cities are back, as well as jumping on top of clouds and even paragliding through them, seemingly influenced by Skyward Sword (which was recently remastered for Switch). Due to its status as a sequel to Breath of the Wild, which is still considered one of the best Switch games ever, expectations for the game are extremely high and there is still a lot we do not know about it, including its exact release date. You can see everything we have known about Breath of the Wild 2 so far below – including every single trailer, teaser, leak, and update we’ve had from Nintendo since 2016.
We had not seen much about Breath of the Wild 2 apart from an announcement trailer and a few sparse comments prior to E3 2021, but now fans have a look at the game. At the Nintendo presentation, Nintendo revealed some further BOTW 2 footage, as well as a release date for 2022. There is no indication if the launch will take place early in 2022 or late in 2022, but it’s worth noting that the original Nintendo Switch launched in March 2017, so a March 2022 date would be fitting for a five-year celebration.
saw Breath of the Wild 2 in the Nintendo 2021 E3 presentation for the first time. It showed off a large, massive city of Hyrule, enhanced with the possibility of flying, despite the dungeon-like atmosphere of the original 2019 trailer. We also see some paragliding in the clouds, as well as freefall mechanics that look ripped right out of Skyward Sword, and a new glove that appears to stand in for the Sheikah slate in Even a splashed puddle is shown in a short clip …
Reverting in time? We’re not entirely sure, but it’s clear that some new mechanics will be introduced into the Zelda formula, while one of the first game’s sentient boulder enemies (that’s Stone Pebblit to you) is shown with a Bokoblin fort on its back for BOTW 2, suggesting even more dynamic interplay between the game’s many enemies.
BREATH OF THE WILD 2 TRAILERS
The first look at Breath of the Wild 2 was this spooky trailer from E3 2019, which shows Zelda and Link exploring an underground chamber – complete with glowing hands, mysterious runes, and a brand-new haircut that has set the internet on fire. A new Legend of Zelda game has been released. The Breath of the Wild 2 trailer made its debut last year and is just 82 seconds long. It contains no dialogue, but it does provide some clues about the game. The game is based around Link and Zelda traversing a dark dungeon underneath Hyrule with a torch (which is no surprise). It seems like, as they explore the musty tomb, they discover a strange presence, and the pair rides a large elephant-like beast. Something shocking happens to the pair, and then we see what appears to be the resurrection of some long-dead (and creepy) Ganondorf’s return? Could this be the case? Later in the video, we see a long shot of Hyrule Field with a distant view of Hyrule Castle. A slight tremor shakes the castle, dust is strewn all over it… We have come to the end of our story. There is a message at the end of the clip Legend of Zelda A sequel to the acclaimed video game. “Breath of the Wild is in development.” We wouldn’t normally expect such a lot of animation to be done so early in a development cycle, but it helps to have Breath of the Wild’s engine already.
BREATH OF THE WILD 2 NEWS AND RUMORS
It looks like a high-powered, 4K Nintendo Switch Pro is still in the works Despite the release of the Nintendo Switch OLED, the rumors of a Nintendo Switch Pro launching with Breath of the Wild 2 have been dampened. Toto claims that Nintendo Switch Pro could have a chance, according to Tokyo-based analyst Serkan Toto. It has been suggested by Toto that the Switch OLED could be a dummy upgrade before a real upgrade “Toto told Bloomberg “This new Switch looks more like an interim model than an upgrade to me.” Breath Of The Wild 2 in the meantime Nintendo gave Skyward Sword an HD remaster in the meantime, and we think it’s worth playing on the pause list. From mechanics to characters to environment and narrative, we believe Skyward Sword HD and Breath of the Wild 2 share a surprising degree of commonality. Here’s why you should pay attention to Skyward Sword HD the moment Breath of the Wild 2 hits store shelves.
The Breath of the Wild 2 comparison to Majora’s Mask Nintendo’s Treehouse is always a useful source of info on upcoming Nintendo games, and Breath of the Wild 2 is no exception. As Bill Trinen, Senior Product Marketing Manager at Nintendo of America, pointed out during a recent interview with IGN, the relationship between BOTW 2 and the N64’s Ocarina of Time and its sequel, Majora’s Mask, is well known. Considering what’s been shown so far and the fact that it’s a direct sequel, I would say it’s an easy comparison or conclusion to draw at this point in time. Hence, I can understand people coming to that conclusion, but at the same time – and I don’t want to go into too many details – this is its own game.”. Although the game reuses many of the assets of Majora’s Mask, Trinen wants to make it clear that this is indeed a We’ll probably be able to tell a bit more about where this game stands on its own and what makes it so unique once we start showing it a bit more in the coming months to a year or so. As [BOTW 2] builds on Breath of the Wild, which already had so many layers of Link’s ability and layers to the gameplay in the first game… I think this is going to layer quite a bit more into that”. ANALYSIS Fan theory Ganondorf may play a role in Breath of the Wild 2 A new Breath of the Wild 2 fan theory suggests Ganondorf may appear on some Apparently, Barrett Courtney of Kinda Funny (via GameSpot) has suggested that the Link we saw in the new E3 2021 trailer is actually Ganondorf, and that players will have to explore Ganondorf’s fall in the game. “You will be learning about Ganondorf the man and finding out how to free him from the evil that has been at work over him for countless
And in doing so, we’ll break the cycle started by Demise.” Continuing down this line, Courtney has suggested that the full name of BOTW 2 (still being kept under wraps by Nintendo) could be something like “Demise of the Wild”, making reference to Breath of the Wild and the corruption caused by Demise. Incidentally, Demise is one of the main antagonists of Skyward Sword, which is to be re-released on Switch later this year.
Courtney suggests that a Skyward Sword port was a deliberate choice, “Fujibayashi wants to connect all 3 of his major games together and getting Skyward to Switch will give first timers the back story they need before BOTW2.” Of course, there is evidence against the theory and until Nintendo reveals more about the game, we can’t be absolutely certain about the story that Breath of the Wild 2 will tell. Nintendo revealed to IGN that it won’t reveal the full title of The Legend of Zelda until it has earned the approvals of the relevant parties We don’t want to reveal too much about Breath of the Wild 2 since it could give away some of what happens We’re holding back on the name for a few reasons, the most important of which is that Zelda names are highly important, Nintendo Treehouse’s Bill Trinen says. “Those subtitles did not add up…” The hints start to come in and we start to get a better idea about things to come.” Trinen did not specify when Nintendo is planning to reveal the full title, but it is likely that it won’t happen until closer to the release date. E3 2021 Nintendo showed us the “Breath of the Wild 2” trailer during its presentation on June 15 in Los Angeles. The news that Nintendo would attend the all-digital expo was announced a couple of months prior, and the fans were chomping at the bit until the new trailer and release date were announced. Breath of the Wild 2 should get more attention in 2021 Nintendo’s Direct presentation in February 2021 had no news regarding Breath of the Wild 2 but it was present. In a brief update during today’s Zelda series presentation (via NintendoLife), Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma shared the development is progressing smoothly and that there will be more information on the game later in the “I’m sure that a lot of you saw me and wondered if I had any news on the sequel to Breath of the Wild. Aonuma replied, “Unfortunately, we have no news at this time.” This year will bring some information on the development of the system. We will update you on the progress later.
So far we have a 2022 release date, but that doesn’t mean we won’t hear more before the year is out.” We now have a 2022 release date, but that doesn’t mean we won’t hear more before 2021. Until we know more about Hyrule Warriors, the developers at Nintendo have responded to a request for an update. Nintendo and Koei Tecmo Games have released a prequel to the original We are living in the age of calamity. It takes place 100 years before the original game, when Link, Zelda, and friends (including the four Champions, who will be playable for the first time) face hordes of enemies in Hyrule before it was destroyed by I, like others, was glad to have the opportunity to return to Hyrule in 2020, but the release of this prequel led me to believe there might be a long wait.
In revealing Age of Calamity, series producer Eiji Aonuma acknowledged the relative lack of news for Breath of the Wild 2 and said: “In order to make the vast world you enjoyed exploring in the original game even more impressive, the team is working hard on its development, so you’ll have to wait a bit longer before we can provide more updates.” Could Switch Pro rumors offer Breath of the Wild 2 hints? The Nintendo Switch Pro is said to be in the works for a release date somewhere between 2021 and 2022, according to numerous reports. Several reports suggest that Nintendo will unveil a new Switch console in 2019 with an improved interface and sharper display. These reports come from the Economic Daily News and Bloomberg. Bloomberg reports that Nintendo will also launch a bunch of new games in conjunction with these hardware upgrades. Due to the fact that the original Breath of the Wild released with the original Switch back in 2017, it would be nice to release Breath of the Wild 2 alongside a more modern version of the console. There now exists the knowledge that Nintendo plans to release the Nintendo Switch OLED in October 2021. This screen has an improved resolution but lacks the power of the previous model, casting some doubt over An analyst has suggested there could still be a third console. Voice acting misunderstanding In a sign of just how much excitement fans have been building around Breath of the Wild 2, here is an interview with the voice actors voice actors for Zelda and Revali in the Spanish dub It caused some controversy when Breath of the Wild was mentioned on a Spanish podcast called A Coffee with Nintendo Fans were led to believe that BOTW 2 is further along in development than originally thought after reading an interview suggesting the voice actors have finished their work on the game. In the end, however, it was revealed that the voice actors were joking and that any context was lost due to translation issues. As a matter of fact, it hasn’t even been confirmed that they are working on a We don’t know what the future of Breath of the Wild 2 is like now that we don’t know the status of it. Breath of the Wild 2 rumors are circulating It’s been a while since anything solid about the game has been released, and rumors seem to pop up when no news has been released.
Tyler McVicker has come forward with a rumor. In March 2020, McVicker (who has a YouTube channel dedicated to Valve rumors) teased out some unconfirmed Zelda sequel information (via NintendoLife) during a stream he hosted. The same Hyrule layout is returning, but new features such as a “miasma”-like corruption system and dungeons will be added to the map to add depth and detail, taken from Red Dead Redemption 2 and an The DLC that never was In an interview with Kotaku, Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma explained that there were originally plans for more DLC content for BOTW after the Master Trials and Champion’s Ballad add-ons that released In the beginning, Anouma and his colleagues were just thinking of DLC ideas. It then occurred to us, “This is too many ideas, let’s just make one new game a start from scratch.” BOTW 2 will take a darker direction for the series. To be honest, we’re not sure much about it yet. It seems, however, that there are rumors everywhere. There has been a lot of speculation, hopes, and hot takes regarding what the next mainline Zelda title might include due to the sudden trailer release. Eiji Aonuma, Zelda series producer, told IGN that the game will have a darker tone than Breath of the Wild, and it will even be “a little bit darker” than Majora’s Mask (via Nintendo Life). This is certainly supported by the trailer, which shows Ganondorf’s corpse being resurrected by a disembodied hand and hints of Twilight Princess, which created an atmospheric shadow realm in response to the Legend of Zelda’s more bright and cheery aesthetic You can download Wind Waker if you prefer.
There is a lot to learn about the Twilight realm The glowing blue hand in the trailer is a sign that there will be more of the Twili in the game – shadow people descended from Hylians who tried to acquire Twisted shapes swirl around the hand, which reminds me of Twilight architecture, while the swirling magic could be a nod to the portals in which Twili invaded Hyrule in 2006’s Legend of Zelda. As we know, BOTW’s dev team originally toyed with the idea of an alien invasion, and seeing shadow creatures teleport out of the sky could have been what they had planned for this time. There’s a clue in the audio illustrating just how far some Zelda fans will go, u/ReroFunk (via Inverse) has created a pretty convincing theory regarding Twilight Princess villain Zant, a Twili who served Ganondorf. When you listen to the trailer’s audio in reverse, you can hear certain notes that seem to echo the music played during your final confrontation with Zant – who, though defeated, insists he will return with As well, u/ReroFunk suggests we may see the return of the demon king Demise in the next Zelda.
The original form of Ganondorf, Death, appears in Skyward Sword and is revealed as the final boss. When you think about it, the below still from the Zelda trailer looks very similar to Demise. A lot of dungeons (and an extended map) Rumors about the Breath of the Wild sequel have us thinking we could be in for a treat with a new map that’s different from anything we’ve seen in the Zelda series. Nintendo is also looking for people to design some dungeons and hidden bosses for the game according to a couple of new job postings – so far, so good. Who will be in the spotlight this time around? Zelda? In the world of fan theories, the Hyrule princess holds a special role. Link is shown with a short hairstyle in the trailer, and she is dressed in a manner similar to his own adventurer’s gear – leading some to speculate that she may even be playable. In the past, the game’s developers have seemed pretty dismissive of the idea of a female Link – unfortunately – but we may see sections of the game where you play as Zelda, or at least when she’s playing a bigger
