I'd say any reuse of material due to it being a direct sequel would be counterbalanced by the added workload of HD tier vs Wii-tier development.

I simply can't see BOTW2 realistically arriving this year, not with the team's track record. I'd love to be wrong but I'm certain I won't be.

That development group has made:

New Super Mario Bros. U
Nintendo Land
Pikmin 3
Mario Kart 8
Super Mario Maker
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD
Wii Fit U
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
Splatoon 2
Super Mario Odyssey
New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe
Super Mario Maker 2
Animal Crossing: New Horizons

I hardly think they are new to HD assets.

I didn't say they weren't used to it, just that making a much more complex game naturally takes more work.

Anyway, we'll see; I'd saw off my right ear with a rusty knife to get BOTW2 this year, but I really can't see it happening. If I'm wrong, I'll gladly wear that in my sig for a month or something.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.
