So, when do you folks expect BOTW 2? Late 2020? Early 2021?

I'm hoping for late 2020, but expecting early or even late 2021.



Things to note from the trailer first take:

- Zelda's choice of mount doesn't resemble the usual buffaloes in BOTW possible it's a new addition
- Obvious implied darker theme similar to MM
- Hyrule Castle is lifted into the air in the trailer could this mean more air exploration and the return of the Loftwing
- Link's core mechanic is going to be something to do with his arm, what ever that ethereal arm holding who is assumed to be the main antagonist is in place surely gets passed on to Link as it's seen in a scene appearing to save him.
- The possible villain looks resembles three main villains Ganondorf, Yugo or the demon himself Demise but could still be a new villain.
- Looks like the dark beast Ganon finds a host to inhabit as opposed to running around freely in BOTW.
- Link looks to still have the Master Sword.
- The villain (vessel) has the similar eyes to the moon in Majora's Mask.
- It's hard to notice but the murals on the wall depict a demon like figure attacking or killing what appears to be another figure who appears to be more regal like a king while two warriors of soldiers appear to want to take the demon on, one has a sword the other a bow.

Sorry had to get that out of my system. With that I’d almost forget to be hyped for Link’s Awakening, which includes a friggin dungeon maker, first.

Yup, pretty much this. 

Now does this mean the sheika tablet will become useless ? Probably for some story reason.

I'm actually expecting the castle to get transported into a new land of sorts where Link has to rely on this new found ability.

I'll have to see some gameplay and get some idea of what the game will be like mechanically before I can get hyped, but I am very glad to see them stick with BOTW's style. I'm liking the darker vibe too.

2021 release at the earliest though; if there's one thing we've learned about the Zelda team it's that they take their time.



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

Help, I can't handle all this Zelda hype! We've got Cadence of Hyrule out in two days, Link's Awakening Remake moved up to SEPTEMBER(!), and a fucking BOTW sequel announced! I don't remember the last time we got this much good Zelda news at once!

Based on the footage, it looks like it has been in development for a little while already. Looks like a Majora's Mask style sequel, reusing the assets of the first game, which means we could see a much faster development time. Holiday 2021 should be pretty easy for them to accomplish.
