One of the most anticipated Switch games for a very long time. Players are foaming at the mouth in excitement to play Zelda Breath of the Wild 2. It’s not often that Legend of Zelda games get direct sequels. So when players found out that one of their most favourite Zelda games will be getting a Switch sequel. Well, needless to say there was a wave of joy across the Zelda fandom.
The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild was critically acclaimed, in fact many players bought the Switch solely to play the game. Thus, it’s no surprise just how excited players and critics are to get their hands on Zelda BOTW 2.
Zelda BOTW 2 Release Date
The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 doesn’t have an official release date just yet. But the recent Nintendo Direct at least narrowed it down somewhat.
We can expect a 2022 release. We can suspect it’ll be a November or Decvember 2022 release.
Zelda BOTW 2 Rumours and Theories
We’re quite certain that the official title won’t be Breath of the Wild 2. The Zelda series tends to have unique titles, not ‘direct sequel’ names (Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask are a prime example). Although, it’s worth noting that the title hasn’t been released because, Nintendo Treehouse’s Bill Trinen, said that it contains clues and possible spoilers to the story. Exciting though, right? But in the meantime, we’ll just call it BOTW 2.
However, when it comes to story, who knows what’s going on! There’s been some popular theories circulating the web
- Time Travel. The music at the start of the 2019 BotW 2 trailer sounds reversed, which led some to believe that this is a clue; perhaps the BotW 2 story starts by going back in time. Not to mention, the game series haven’t been averse to time travel plots.
- The two Links. This theory is strengthened by the 2021 BotW 2 trailer, as we see Link in the ‘normal’ Hyrule wearing his traditional clothing and hairstyle, while Link in the floating island realm is wearing a new set of clothes and loose hair. Did he just change his look, or is floating island Link actually Link from the past?
- Secret Zelda. Again, floating island Link could not be Link at all. The loose hair is not too long, and we already saw Zelda with shorter loose hair in the 2019 trailer. It’s not unlikely that BotW 2 will feature both Link and Zelda as playable characters.
Whatever happens, we’re certain it’ll be absolutely phenomenal. We’ll update you all as we go along. Can’t wait!
