Despite the anticipation for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s sequel, Nintendo has been useless silent in regards to the upcoming recreation since its announcement trailer in 2019. We know little in regards to the recreation apart from obscure inklings about its premise, which appears to contain Link and Zelda attempting to place down for good what we presume to be the useless husk of Ganon. And we do not even know if the sport might be titled Breath of the Wild 2 or if it will have a wholly new subtitle.But with Zelda’s 35th anniversary arising, we’re getting a sense that new particulars could also be coming quickly, so we have taken the time to replicate on the primary BotW to seek out 9 issues we would wish to see from the sequel. For all the most recent information in regards to the recreation, make sure you take a look at our BotW 2 hub. Otherwise, what do you wish to see in BotW 2? Let us know within the feedback beneath, and keep tuned to GameSpot for any future updates in regards to the recreation.Playable or Partner ZeldaCan we not have Zelda because the damsel in misery anymore? Wouldn’t it’s cool to combat alongside her in a extra cooperative expertise? Nintendo has typically been good about having adventures you may play alongside pals with video games like Luigi’s Mansion 3 and Kirby: Star Allies, so the thought of getting Zelda and Link aspect by aspect out within the open world seems like a dream come true. Although, on the flip aspect of the coin, it could trigger different mechanical points, as we might see triggering bullet-time as a nuisance for the opposite participant if not carried out correctly. Other concepts like having an AI-controlled Zelda observe you all through all the journey, a completely playable Zelda, and even the flexibility to regulate each characters concurrently, ala-Astral Chain, could be improbable to see within the sequel.We obtained a few of this fulfilled with Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, however we hope that Link and Zelda could have extra significant gameplay collectively within the sequel going ahead and never the prequel.Bring Back Traditional ItemsThe Gale Boomerang, Hookshot, Bombchus, and so many different conventional Zelda tools items could be thrilling additions in a BotW sequel. We appreciated the throwback weapons you possibly can use within the authentic BotW by scanning amiibo, just like the Biggoron Sword and Twilight Bow. However, the collection’ most time-honored instruments and gadgets could be a superb option to change issues up.An effective way for Nintendo to maintain development from feeling too linear could be to strategy utilizing instruments and gadgets because it did for A Link Between Worlds. In that recreation, all of the gadgets have been made out there to you from Ravio, and you possibly can hire them for 50-100 rupees apiece, so there was no have to get them from dungeons in a selected order.But what if Breath of the Wild 2 had this? You might hire all of the gadgets from the start should you grind sufficient rupees or take it at a slower tempo and go merchandise by merchandise. Admittedly, the presence of conventional Zelda gadgets may not mesh effectively in opposition to the physics-based gadgets of BotW. Incorporating them as freely as A Link Between Worlds could make this a very completely different expertise. Maybe they may additionally implement the weapon sturdiness system and make this stuff solely final for therefore lengthy. Who is aware of! But all we all know is that we would like a few of these outdated Zelda gadgets again!Nero’s Arm Mechanics (From Devil May Cry)While outright Devil May Cry combating mechanics in a mainline Zelda recreation could be an excessive amount of, this new seemingly arm-possessed Link in BotW 2 offers us some critical Nero vibes. We’re hoping the arm performs a component in including new abilities, like grappling talents for exploration, puzzle-solving, and fight, as a result of that might be outright superior. In the identical vein as some Zelda tools that ought to return, it might make an applicable religious successor to the hookshot.Bring Back Traditional DungeonsWe would not wish to substitute shrines, removed from it, however we’re hoping that the primary dungeons include extra of what made the unique Zelda dungeons so memorable. Maps, compasses, keys, distinctive bosses, and perhaps even tool-based puzzles might deliver again some appeal and familiarity to the expertise. While the Divine Beasts have been nice, they lacked the development and labyrinthian design that made conquering these traditional Zelda dungeons so satisfying. If there’s something to take from BotW’s Divine Beasts, it will be their open-ended nature to offer exploration throughout every dungeon’s advanced net of rooms a good higher sense of freedom.The BotW sequel could be an ideal alternative for traditional Zelda dungeon design to return. Nintendo might simply justify it within the recreation’s world with all of the Divine Beasts out of fee.More Emphasis On StoryWhile BotW was an impressive recreation mechanically, its story admittedly took a again seat, particularly towards the top. Because the sport was so targeted on the facility to chart your personal journey and do issues in any order, there was little room for the characters and story to develop. And because the reminiscences cutscenes have been elective, many gamers could have missed out on much more of the story’s context.Now that we’re on to the sequel, we’re hoping Nintendo decides to emphasise the story and its characters, permitting them to develop extra meaningfully all through the sport. This may make the story extra linear, but when the remainder of the sport remains to be open, we expect this would possibly not be an excessive amount of of a compromise, particularly whether it is good. Nintendo has confirmed that nice tales may be advised within the Zelda universe up to now with video games like Wind Waker and Skyward Sword. And with BotW particularly, there’s nonetheless a lot extra to discover with Zelda, Link, and Hyrule at giant. A sequel looks as if the perfect place to do this!New Explorable Areas Outside Of Hyrule (Or A Different Version)Hyrule in BotW is huge and a fantastic place to actually specific the sense of freedom the sport offers you. But should you’re exploring the identical areas within the sequel, what’s going to Nintendo do to clean up the expertise for individuals who poured a whole lot of hours into the unique? That sense of discovery could be gone. We’re hoping that BotW 2 has some Termina or Koholint Island space to discover if it is set in the identical Hyrule. Or on the very least, perhaps a Dark World Hyrule or some Lorule-like variant the place issues are largely the identical however barely completely different.Swimming UpgradesAs a lot as floor and air motion was an astounding feat in BotW, I really feel like swimming was one thing of an afterthought. It was clunky to maneuver shortly, and there wasn’t even a dive possibility. If Nintendo might enhance the general expertise of swimming and broaden water exploration within the sequel, that might be superior. We would not thoughts not totally diving underwater both; the time-honored Iron Boots technique would nonetheless be greater than sufficient to make issues attention-grabbing.Return The DarknutThere are loads of different enemies within the Zelda collection that ought to make a exhibiting within the BotW sequel, however our private want is the return of Darknuts. Lynel’s have been an incredible problem in BotW, however a very good quaint one-on-one duel in opposition to a kind of iron-clad knights is one thing that might deliver a tear to our eye. In each Twilight Princess and Wind Waker, they have been one in all our favourite enemies to combat.Let Us Pet Dogs!’Nuff stated, if we will not pet canine within the sequel, it is principally unplayable. Okay, perhaps not, however in all seriousness, the canine in BotW have been fairly darn cute, and the feed-for-treasure mechanic was cool, however simply allow us to pet the great bois. They deserve it.
