Nintendo offered one of the biggest surprises at E3 2019 after it announced The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, the sequel of the popular Nintendo title.
The game has already received a large amount of downloadable content, and additional DLC seemed like a great idea. The DLC released for the game was well-received, and many Nintendo Switch owners were looking forward to extra DLCs.
Eiji Aonuma, the producer of the series, has shared some information about the decision to make a standalone sequel to Breath of the Wild. The main motivation comes from the fact that the development team had a large number of ideas, and it seemed more reasonable to assemble them in the form of a sequel, instead of releasing a large number DLC packs.
Nintendo had too many DLC ideas and decided to create The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2
Since DLC rely on existing data, it is quite difficult to add complex content which could bring radical changes to the title. A sequel will allow the development team to play with new mechanics and to create an interesting story and gameplay experience. The director of the original title will be back for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, and according to the company, the developers were inspired by Red Dead Redemption 2.
The trailer for the upcoming sequel was quite impressive. It begins with Link and Zelda in the middle of a cave. While Link looks similar to the BotW version Zelda sports a shorter hair and a cape and hood combo which looks similar to the ones featured in the Hylian Armor Set.
The background music adds an air of mystery which is reminiscent of the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Other comparisons with this title can be made as Link and Zelda continue to explore the dungeon. The pair discovers a mummy which wears what seems to be a potent artifact on a hand. Several scenes are, and it seems that a new enemy threatens the world. Nintendo didn’t offer a release date for The Legends of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, but it is likely that more information will surface in the future.
