The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 is one of the most anticipated games of the year... but a lot of details still aren't known. Either way, here is what we know right now.
Latest News - Zelda Uses Miis For NPCs
It was just revealed The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild actually uses an advanced form of the Mii characters for its NPCs.
New NPCs can actually be coded into the game and you can program them to look like famous characters, actors, or even your own Mii which you created.
This begs the question, will The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 use the same technology and therefore use advanced forms of Miis to craft its NPCs.
Right now we don't have any idea if this will be the case but it is an interesting point that could be implemented into the new game.
Many fans want to see a 2021 release date for the next Legend of Zelda game, but it's starting to look like it will be much longer of a wait.
While Nintendo hasn’t provided any updates on the progression of the sequel apart from revealing some artwork.
This suggests that a release is much further down the line than fans initially hoped for
This checks out, as there are rumours Nintendo will be launching a Switch ‘Pro’ this year, allegedly capable of running 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.
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.
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.
Possible Gameplay, Setting, And Story Changes
As of right now, we don't have any information on what gameplay and story changes we might see in The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild 2.
However fans have speculated that the game will still be set in Hyrule, but a changed version of the kingdom with the original form of Gannon returning, which was seemingly hinted at in the reveal trailer above.
