The Legend Of Zelda has always been one of the most enticing gaming franchises from Nintendo. This time, Nintendo Switch is bringing you Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild 2, which will continue the adventure of our favorite Link and Zelda, once again!


Apart from The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild 2, there is a rumor of Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword getting a remake for Nintendo Switch.

Breath Of The Wild 2 – Looking into The Title

If the title holds any truth to the game, it could be a sequel to Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild, which we have already received for Nintendo Switch. However, Nintendo usually revamps the characters and, much like Mario, likes to place them into new mechanisms and iterations than the standard. Therefore, we can guess that it might not exactly be Breath Of The Wild 2, but a placeholder.

Looking Into The Prequel:

If we talk about the possibility of holding the title ‘Breath Of The Wild 2,’ you would have to assume that it starts after the ending of the previous installment. In that game, we see Link and Zelda making a promise to go on a new adventure together. That might be how they will continue the story, and we will get a sequel after a long time.

Evaluating The LifeSpan Of Nintendo:

Evaluating The LifeSpan Of Nintendo

Whenever Nintendo launches a new Console, it has an average lifespan of around 5 years, at the least. We received the first console in March of 2017. According to that, we still have until 2022 before we get another Nintendo Console. However, there have been rumors about Nintendo Switch 2, as well.

Legend Of Zelda Release Gap:

Nintendo often releases a new Legend Of Zelda title (even if we include remakes) every 3-4 years. We will see some of the games faster to release if they are remakes like a 1 or 2 years gap is what we will see at best. If we go by this evaluation, then Breath Of The Wild 2 might be close to release.

If it didn’t get one in 2020, we would most likely get it in 2021. After all, we can all blame Pandemic for slowing down the production of almost everything in the world, including our favorite games.

Possibility Of Switch 2 Accompany:

As we close the gap of the ‘years’ before Nintendo waits to release another console, we might likely hear about Nintendo Switch 2 first. If that happens, then it is highly likely that the Legend Of Zelda’s sequel might release with the new gaming console for Nintendo. As it is just an improved version and not a completely new device, we can expect Nintendo to use the old tactics of introducing a new console with a new game.

Trailer Breakdown:

If we look at the trailer, you can see that Breath Of The Wild 2 is very much appearing on a Nintendo Switch’s screen. So, it is most-probably for Switch or the next Switch 2 variation. From the trailer, we can also see that our favorite characters won’t be a reimagination. The story will indeed pick off from where we left off in the prequel. However, there might be no link between the two.

Story Synopsis:

We can diagnose from the trailer that the two will go to investigate new spirit energy. It seems that this energy might have necromancy powers (the ability to reanimate the dead). Hence, the adventure might revolve around that. As we also see a glimpse of Hyrule, the threat might loom over there for our heroes to save it.

Zelda As A playable Character:

Through the trailer, you can notice that Zelda has received a change in hairstyle. It would seem that it is a deliberate action to make Zelda a more playable character similar to Link. After all, the gameplay and style of Breath Of The Wild were unique and you could expect them to surprise you by exploring Zelda.

We can expect it to be a new USP (Unique Selling Point) to ensure that the players will find an excuse to find the game enticing, even if it is to play their favorite princess Zelda as a character in the game.

Hyrule For The Map:

Series Producer Eiji Aonuma confirmed the sequel’s set up to Hyrule. If you notice it in the trailer, we see catacombs and the castle’s underground area in Hyrule. We received a fantastic treat of Hyrule in the previous Breath Of The Wild version. Series Producer Eiji Aonuma has revealed his wish and desire to explore that world. Therefore, the series might be limited to it. Although, we can expect some open-world elements here and there.

 Breath Of The Wild 2 Release Date:

As mentioned earlier, there hasn’t been any release date so far. Although it’s been a while since the trailer’s release, a lot is left to speculation. We can expect a lot. The sequel to Breath Of The Wild could receive a new name, as well. After all, that’s what we have seen with the Zelda series with Ocarina of Time and then Majora’s mask.

Breath Of The Wild 2 Release Date

The game is still most likely under development. Therefore, it can get released anywhere from March 2021 to early 2022. We are sure that you will be able to play it by then. If there is any other news about the development, you will learn about it. So far, a release date is still up for anticipation, at best.

Frequently Asked Questions:


Can Breath Of The Wild 2 Get Cancelled?

No, it’s doubtful that Breath Of The Wild will get canceled. After all, once Nintendo releases a game trailer, they will work more to ensure that it gets an initial release and that everyone gets to know it. Hence, you can Expect Breath of the wild 2 to stay around.


Can You Expect A Remastered Legend Of Zelda Game In 2021?

A remake or remastered game is highly unlikely. However, we know that Nintendo is releasing Super Mario World with Bowser’s Fury for its 35th Anniversary. Hence, you can expect various games like Twilight Princess, Hyrule Warriors: Age Of Calamity, or Wind Waker. But it is improbable. We may get the direct sequel to Breath Of The Wild.


Is Breath Of The Wild 2 Good For Zelda Games?

Well, we haven’t seen Nintendo releasing sequels like these in a long time. Many of them failed, but at the same time, Majora’s Mask was quite successful. Players are more receptive to the game. As the prequel left us wanting more, it can likely be a great game.


Is Ganondorf in Breath Of The Wild 2?

From the looks of it, the trailer showed us an undead character. It can most likely be the king of thieves Ganondorf making a return as an undead king of a formidable foe in Zelda’s next installment.



That’s everything we know about The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild 2 so far. As Nintendo’s 35th Anniversary in 2021, we can be up for many surprises and treats. So, it is better to keep in touch with the latest news. The game can’t be that far off from release or some form of an announcement! So, brace yourself!
