There is some weight behind this theory, as Zelda’s clothing and new haircut in the recent trailer imply that she will be going on an adventure, rather than sitting safely on her throne in Hyrule.
The trailer for BOTW 2 shows Link and Zelda journeying together through a dungeon on the back of a giant elephant-looking creature.
The underground cavern is filled with ancient murals, treasure and…oh yeah, a mummified corpse that appears to rise from the dead.

Co-op & playable Zelda
Series producer Eiji Aonuma won’t confirm the idea of playing as Zelda or the inclusion of co-op in the sequel to Breath of the Wild, but his answers in recent interviews have left plenty of room for interpretation.
