All I care about with the next Zelda game is that I can have max stamina AND max hearts. That bugs me more than anything in the entire game. I was so happy when i heard the number of new shrines in the DLC, thinking that number matched the number needed to max out hearts to 30. BUT NO.

That's quite interesting, I'm completely opposite, I loathe modern game designs (which are so prevalent these days) that practically allow you to unlock all skills and max all stats - IMO, your character should be representation of your choices, and those are always limiting.

It's not about min/maxing my stats or getting OP or anything. It's more of a nagging on my OCD for say symmetry or looking complete. If I put 30 hearts, I have two full good rows, but missing a tiny stamina. If i have full stamina, missing a few hearts. Yes I can use food to put them both at full and max, but its just annoying.

Every other Zelda game had you have full two rows of hearts. This one you can't if you want full stamina.

I think the good news is that the bones of Breath of the Wild are so great that simply layering on new stories, characters, maps, and dungeons will probably be sufficient to turn out another masterpiece.

The bad news is that the novelty and the sense of discovery of Breath of the Wild will probably be difficulty to recreate in a sequel. We might have to wait another 20 years for something as momentous as BoTW.

That's the thing though, I can easily see how they can improve the formula established by BOTW to do a game that "more of the same but better", but such a game won't evoke as much of a wow factor as BOTW did cos it won't be as revolutionary. Not that a game needs to be revolutionary to be great, but I think that almost no matter what they do with the sequel, it will never receive quite the same sky-high acclaim as BOTW.

This is part of what makes the next Zelda interesting. Like Majora's Mask before it, the next Zelda will have the expectations built from being the follow-up to BoTW, let alone just being the next Zelda game in general. I guess, as some have said here, because of how BoTW was formatted, it allows more wiggle room for the next game to grow onto its own because there's an opportunity to explore deeper into the concepts BoTW built and add in new concepts that the devs have in mind at this time.



I really want the next Zelda do be an expansion upon the concepts and engine in Breath of the Wild. I more coherent story, but more importantly better dungeons and bosses.



Tbh, I don’t expect a 2D or old 3D titles coming anytime soon.

And talking about the story, I found the one in BotW the one I may like more than any other. I loved the lore and the characters. Also, it is a pretty sad story in my opinion.

I hope you are wrong about a 2D Zelda. LttP, the Oracle games and MC are some of my favorite Zelda games.

 

The story is great, but you have to work hard to piece it together. No, I am not talking about the memories as I thought it was a good way to tell a story. I mean the dialogue and journals that help piece the memories together forming a great story. I want the next Zelda to be a little easier for the player to put together.

... A third of the game in the past, preparing for war in a lush and colorful world and the remaining two thirds spent in a futuristic world ...

 

But, isn’t this kinda the Ocarina of Time progression template? With 3 dungeons in the past plus 5 in the future.

Ah, the Zelda’s and King’s diaries were frightening to me. The last page of the three files ended abruptly at the awakening of the calamity ganon.

Yes. The King's last line wrenched my heart.
