Despite the anticipation for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s sequel, Nintendo has been dead silent about the upcoming game since its announcement trailer in 2019. We know little about the game aside from vague inklings about its premise, which seems to involve Link and Zelda trying to put down for good what we presume to be the dead husk of Ganon. And we don’t even know if the game will be titled Breath of the Wild 2 or if it’ll have an entirely new subtitle.
But with Zelda’s 35th anniversary coming up, we’re getting a feeling that new details may be coming soon, so we’ve taken the time to reflect on the first BotW to find nine things we’d want to see from the sequel. For all the latest news about the game, be sure to check out our BotW 2 hub. Otherwise, what do you want to see in BotW 2? Let us know in the comments below, and stay tuned to GameSpot for any future updates about the game.
Playable or Partner Zelda
Can we not have Zelda as the damsel in distress anymore? Wouldn’t it be cool to fight alongside her in a more cooperative experience? Nintendo has generally been good about having adventures you can play alongside friends with games like Luigi’s Mansion 3 and Kirby: Star Allies, so the idea of having Zelda and Link side by side out in the open world sounds like a dream come true. Although, on the flip side of the coin, it may cause other mechanical issues, as we could see triggering bullet-time as a nuisance for the other player if not implemented properly. Other ideas like having an AI-controlled Zelda follow you throughout the entire adventure, a fully playable Zelda, or even the ability to control both characters simultaneously, ala-Astral Chain, would be fantastic to see in the sequel.
