It would appear that while assets will be used in the sequel similar to how Majora's Mask was handled, development process will be all that will be shared between these two sequels.  Many wondered if this game would take place in a new land, alternate reality, or Hyrule as we know it.

The man behind the game himself has given us an answer, and it appears that it will take place in the same Hyrule we grew to love in the first game.

It will be interesting to see how they handle this, and I have mixed emotions.  On one hand I was looking forward to exploring a new land or reality similar to how Termina was handled.  On the other hand, Hyrule in BotW was so massive, there is a ton of untapped potential that can be used.  It took them so long to make the world that it would be a shame to not utilize it as to it's fullest.

So what do you guys think?  Are you happy about this, or does this leave you disappointed?  Also what kind of changes to the land could this new threat impose to keep the experience fresh?

The possibilities are endless and I cannot wait to see what you all have to say regarding this decision, and what how you think the revising of Hyrule will be handled.  I will say this, holiday 2020 or March 2021 is looking a lot more possible with this news.

Honestly, that's disappointing.

Because the same world again? But same world # same map only, they could expand and make the new part. All the previous direct sequel Zelda games before didn't have the completely same map. But yeah, we don't know yet

I love this. I loved the world of Breath of the Wild but it was not without flaws. Being in the same world means that they can just keep adding more great content to an already amazing game world. People complained that there weren't enough enemy types, now they can fix that. There were relatively few sidequests, and now they can make more. Most of the story took place in flashback sequences, and now they have a chance to craft a whole new story that your can interact with yourself.



So, Nintendo is doomed, again?

It was announced as a direct sequence to Breath of the Wild. Why wouldn't it be the same Hyrule?

Majora's Mask was a direct sequel to Ocarina of time and it was not the same world.  Wind Waker was a direct sequel to Ocarina of Time as well that took place in the adult timine, and it took place on the great sea.  Spirit Tracks was a direct sequel to Phantom Hourglass, which was a direct sequel to Wind Waker, and those all took place in different areas as well.

This would actually be the second direct sequel in Legend of Zelda history (a link between worlds being the first) to do this, so that is a pretty clear indication as to why people would wonder if it would take place in Hyrule or a neighboring region/reality.

Wouldn't it be the third, actually? I mean, the Link in The Legend of Zelda and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link are one and the same, after all. It's also the same world, just on a much larger map (You can find the area of the first game south of death mountain).

You see Hyrule Castle in the trailer it was a given its the same Hyrule the will likely be changes made anyway.



Here is something to consider.

I feel that Link will lose his sheikah slate, and all those abilities.

Imagine the exact same Breath of the Wild world, no changes, except without those abilities. Replace them with things like the hookshot and others. Just that alone will make the world feel different.

Now I'm not saying that is all they will do, but removing the slate abilities would change the game drastically.

Pretty much. I'm not just fine with this, I'm all for it. There was so much untapped potential in that Hyrule - there were two whole areas in Hebra and Faron that went by with mostly no meaningful content besides Shrines and Koroks -, that alone is worth a second trip.

But I think there's definitely gonna be loads of new content. It's the same place, but obviously we're going deeper in this time. And there are surely going to be new areas, too. Personally I'm not sure I'd be down for another open world in Zelda this soon, but there was a lot more to come from this Hyrule so this was the right choice in my opinion.



Might not be everyone's cuppa tea, but this is exactly what I want out of Breath of the Wild: more.

And when it is your fav game of all time, you'd sure want a LOT MORE :D
