Zelda Breath of the Wild Sequel Is in Development

Nintendo has revealed that they’re working on a sequel to Zelda: Breath of the Wild; dark and mysterious teaser trailer included. It features what might be the corpse of Calamity Ganon coming back to life, Link and Zelda exploring some kind of tomb or dungeon, and possible hints of the Twili. There’s no release date or any other information right now. I doubt that’ll stop the hype from slowly starting to gather up steam.

Well, Nintendo certainly ended their E3 2019 presentation with a bang, didn’t they? Sure, they announced some interesting games coming to the Switch in the foreseeable future, like Luigi\’s Mansion 3 and a new Animal Crossing. However, they saved the best for last, and dropped a real bombshell, right at the very end: the sequel to Legend of Zelda: Breath of the wild is currently in development. I mean, of course it is, but still, that’s some fun news right there.

The announcement was preceded by a short, but very impactful, teaser trailer. The video features Link and Zelda (now with shorter hair), venturing into some sort of creepy dungeon, along with some creepy music and what seems to be a choir played backwards. We see a corpse of what may or may not be Calamity Ganon, and some sort of glowing arm (which might hint at Twili) channeling a dark energy through him. A few fast cuts later, the corpse opens its eyes, and Castle Hyrule starts to rise from the ground. It’s pretty dark in tone and atmosphere, I’m digging it.

So, yeah. A sequel to Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is in the works, and that’s all we know. Everything else is just pure conjecture. Some are even naming the game Breath of the Wild 2, but I’m not so sure that’s gonna be the title. We’ll have to wait and see. In the meantime, if you’re playing Zelda BOTW and are having trouble figuring stuff out, check out our long list of Breath of the Wild guides, including the likes of Breath of the Wild Shrine Locations and Zelda BoTW Final Trial – Monk Maz Koshia Boss Fight.
