The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 is one of the most anticipated games of the year... but will it even release in 2020?
Latest News - Breath of Evil Leaked?
We may have just seen the new name for the Breath of the Wild sequel - titled Breath of Evil.
CLOSING THE SHOW - What a Nintendo Direct this would be
Nintendo Direct leaks are common, so take this leak with a pinch of salt - but it's one of the more believable ones we've seen.
Many fans want to see a 2020 release date for the next Legend of Zelda game, but it's starting to look like it will be much longer of a wait.
LEGENDARY - Breath of the Wild 2 may come to the alleged next-gen Switch
While Nintendo hasn’t provided any updates on the progression of the sequel apart from revealing some artwork.
While this suggests Nintendo is searching for talented individuals, it also means we are likely to see a release in 2021 - later than anticipated.
This checks out, as there are rumours Nintendo will be launching a Switch ‘Pro’ the very same year, allegedly capable of running at 60fps and in 4K.
The following trailer revealed the sequel to BOTW was in development.
It was released on 11 June 2019, during E3.
Zelda and Link pass through the mysterious dungeon on a massive elephant
There is some weight behind this theory, as Zelda’s clothing and new haircut suggest she will be going on an adventure instead of sitting safely on her throne.
Some fans have speculated that Zelda could be rescuing Link this time around, but there's no evidence to support this claim.
With an all new map, all new dungeons, and a potential all new tone, a playable Zelda would be a perfect extra change for the new game.
We still haven't gotten much at all on Zelda Breath of the Wild 2, but what we have gotten is some artwork.
DANGER- Expect all kinds of foes in the darker Zelda Breath of the Wild 2
We expect the game to look amazing on the Nintendo Switch, even while the rest of gaming moves on to next-gen consoles PS5 and Xbox Series X.
With some leaked job posts around the new game, we can expect some quality 3D level designers to put this artwork into action in-game, bringing it all to life.
We hope that Nintendo can 'switch' things up when it comes to the next instalment of Zelda.
