Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 fans have been delivered a new update on the upcoming Nintendo Switch exclusive.
Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 is one of the surprise announcements of this year, with the BoTW sequel getting a shock reveal during E3 2019.
All that fans have to go on is a short teaser trailer, which showed Link and Zelda exploring a Hyrule that looks worse for wear.
The Breath of the Wild 2 trailer gave the impression that the new Zelda game will be darker than the original BoTW.
Could it be that Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 will be the Majora’s Mask to the original’s Ocarina of Time?
That remains to be seen, but as fans wait for more details on Breath of the Wild 2 the developers have spoken out about it.
The Breath of the Wild 2 dev team have said that they’re on the lookout for new ‘terrain designers’.
Satoshi Takizawa, the art director for Breath of the Wild 2, said: “We want to borrow the power of more people to deliver new experiences that exceed the previous work”.
In a post online Inverse speculated that this could be a sign that Breath of the Wild 2 may have an entirely new map.
They said: “A complete overhaul of the sequel’s setting seems extremely likely, especially with the addition of new staff.
“That means Legend of Zelda fans might not be returning to Hyrule at all.”
Inverse also highlighted a fan theory which suggested that BoTW 2’s main villain could be Zant from Wii and Gamecube title Twilight Princess.
In other Breath of the Wild 2 news, a rival title that caused quite a stir when it was initially revealed has resurfaced.
Last month upcoming PS4 game Genshin Impact was unveiled during the ChinaJoy Convention.
However, there were some fans who felt the new PS4 game borrowed too heavily from Breath of the Wild.
One fan in particular smashed their PS4 at the event in protest to the similarities.
At the time Niko Partners analyst Daniel Ahmad tweeted: “When Mihoyo unveiled Genshin Impact for PS4, many noted the game was inspired by BOTW.
“Some fans of BOTW are upset that Sony is promoting this game because of the similarities + they think it’s shameless of Sony.
“This man smashed his PS4 at ChinaJoy in protest.”
And now the miHoYo-developed title has once again made an appearance, getting showcased during Tokyo Game Show 2019.
Off-screen gameplay posted on YouTube shows a number of similar features to BoTW 2.
One such mechanic is using airflows generated by fire to be catapulted into the air and then glide to cover large distances.
The lock-on system as well as the enemy designs and Shrine-like areas also seen reminiscent of Breath of the Wild.
