Breath of the Wild 2: The game is presently under development for a spring 2023 release date, making it one of the most eagerly awaited Nintendo Switch exclusives.
In light of its predecessor, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Breath of the Wild 2 is expected to live up to lofty expectations.
What do we know about Breath of the Wild 2 so far?
We’re expecting a lot from a game that we don’t know a whole lot about at this point. Breath of the Wild 2 real name is still a mystery, and its release date is only set for somewhere in the spring of 2023 at this point.
Through this year, we hope to see a few upgrades to the game, especially in the summer. There is also Summer Game Fest, which is an all-digital event that has become a popular platform for significant announcements despite E3 2022 being cancelled. Breath of the Wild 2 news would undoubtedly be significant at this point.
We’ve learnt a lot about Breath of the Wild 2 from the trailers that have been released so far. Video of Link flying across Hyrule has us eagerly anticipating the game’s release next year.
We gathered all the information you need regarding Breath of the Wild 2, including its delay, what we’ve learned from trailers so far, and all the latest news and rumors, as we wait for more official information.
What can we expect from the sequel?
Breath of the Wild: The Legend of Zelda was originally scheduled for release in 2022. However, Nintendo has informed fans that the game is now expected to be released in spring 2023.
As of March 2022, series producer Eiji Aonuma stated:
“I’m happy to report that the release date for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild II has been moved ahead.
We previously stated that this game would be released in 2022. As a result, we’ve decided to push the release date back to Spring 2023.”
Allowing Nintendo to “create this game’s experience something extraordinary” will be the main benefit of the delay.
Breath of the Wild 2 gameplay mechanics may be revealed by Nintendo’s latest filing of three patents. The three patents have been filed with the World Intellectual Property Organization, according to GameReactor (WIPO).
In each patent, we can see a diagram of what could be Link’s powers in Breath of the Wild 2, and the connection is made between what’s presented in the patent and what we saw in the game’s E3 2021 trailer.
First, the capacity to “perform a specific action,” such as “a shooting action of firing a specified object,” is described in the first invention. With their arms spread and plummeting through the air, the figure depicted in the patent looks like Link at roughly the 25-second mark of the E3 trailer.
In accordance with a second patent, “a designated object selected in response to an operation input is caused to perform return movement to previously recorded positions and orientations, sequentially backward from the time of giving a start instruction based on the operation input” is explained.
That implies that Link might be able to alter the trajectory of an object by focusing on it. Possibly seen about 44 seconds in when Link appears to push back spiky chain balls that are sliding down a hill in the teaser trailer.
What is the release date of Breath of the Wild 2?
Producer Eiji Aonuma stated today in a video update that the untitled sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has been postponed till spring 2023. The game was originally scheduled to be released in 2022.
Breath of the Wild 2 will be Nintendo’s first sequel since the critically acclaimed role-playing game’s release in 2013. According to Aonuma, the game’s open-world incarnation of Hyrule will include new gameplay aspects and encounters as well as an expansion of the game’s terrestrial realm.
Nintendo still refers to Breath of the Wild 2 as “The Sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” but the game’s true title remains a mystery. Nintendo has plenty of time to tell more about Link’s next big journey now that the game is planned to debut next year.
