Zelda: Breath Of The Wild 2 Updates Will Have To “Wait A Bit Longer”

Back at E3 2019, Nintendo ended its Direct live stream with the surprise announcement that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild would receive a sequel. Since then, any information on the sequel has been kept tightly under wraps, as Nintendo isn’t ready yet to divulge any new details on the game. In a brief update regarding progress on Breath of the Wild 2, Legend of Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma asked fans to wait “a bit longer.”

“Regarding the sequel, in order to make the vast world you enjoyed exploring in the original game even more impressive, the team is working hard on its development so you’ll have to wait a bit longer before we can provide more updates,” Aonuma said at the beginning of the Hyrule Warriors reveal video.

Breath of the Wild had received downloadable content after it launched, and shortly after the reveal of the sequel, Aonuma explained that the development team simply had “too many ideas” for original content that would be better utilized in a standalone sequel.

“When we released the DLC for Breath of the Wild, we realized that this is a great way to add more elements to the same world. But when it comes down to technical things, DLC is pretty much data–you’re adding data to a preexisting title,” Aonuma said. “And so when we wanted to add bigger changes, DLC is not enough, and that’s why we thought maybe a sequel would be a good fit.”

“Initially we were thinking of just DLC ideas, but then we had a lot of ideas and we said, ‘This is too many ideas, let’s just make one new game and start from scratch.'”

Nintendo does have a Legend of Zelda spin-off arriving soon, in the form of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. Developed by Koei Tecmo, Age of Calamity is a prequel set 100 years before Breath of the Wild.

Much like other Koei Tecmo games that are inspired by Dynasty Warriors, players will be able to take control of Link, Zelda, and Hyrule champions Mipha, Revali, Daruk, and Urbosa as they face off against hordes of enemies that Calamity Ganon has unleashed.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity will launch exclusively for Nintendo Switch on November 20.
