1. Again this is you pushing the it's nostalgia logic and dismissing the game's own merits to argue your point you're making a sweeping assumption about a large chunk of people who played the game despite you admitting it's a good game with out it which is the whole point to begin with and why the game was brought up the game doesn't feel like an expansion because it's a good game on its own merits nostalgia being a thing for you and some others doesn't change this.

You also keep harping on about how long BOTW takes place after the original and I'll tell you again for the final time that is not going to stop what ever changes they planned.

2. This part is not really going to fly sorry trying to limit debates for a start the negative comments have mainly come from one person so you making it seem like a load of people is an exaggeration secondly we're on the internet and many of us use multiple places for gaming outlooks, if we went only be VGC we'd think that that Switch was going to flop but the wider view on the net was of positive reception which ended up being more of the case and translated into the platform's success. If you only stick to VGC than that's fine don't however expect others to do the same for the sake of your argument.

Ironically you claim that you don't recall seeing people being put off by another better looking Zelda game but then bring up LA's Remake where the thread and ND had people complaining about the graphics in comparison to BOTW and that highlights my point and that was on VGC as well.

3. Now let me tell you why I think it's a good comparison. He was talking about the map yes and ALBW showed that different applications on the same map lead to a different type of experience and great game that stands on its own merits with out nostalgia so yes in this case ALBW is a good example because BOTW would be approached in the same way, you can keep saying nostalgia but that alone can not carry the game for the 30 or so hours you play through it no amount of nostalgia can do that if the game has the concerns that curl is bringing up the game has to stand on it's merits.

The reason Nintendo chose that map was also not because of nostalgia but because the testing template for the central mechanic was of an area in ALLTP resulting in Miyamoto telling the team to just base the new game off ALTTP. All you've seen of BOTW is a cavern like area that wasn't in the original and Hyrule Castle being lifted both would be significant changes to things already.

Heyy guys! I made an account on here just to talk about this game... Okay so ya of course its gonna take place in the same hyrule, its actually a direct sequel. Buttt i dont think hyrule will play a huge part like botw. i think its mostly going to be under ground... An sadly i dont think zelda will be playable :( maybe in dlc hopefully...i just Hope its nnot like typical nintendo where the princess gets captured and we dont see her until the end...

I'm also under the impression that BOTW2 will mainly take place in brand new locations, so I don't think people need to be worried about retreading familiar ground too much. We saw what appears to be an underground cave, so that was my guess too.
There could also be some 'Dark World' element involved that would spice up those old familiar locations into something fresh.

I really hope Zelda is playable... But I have 0 expectations of it. Because Nintendo.

Dark world?!?!?!?

So THAT’S where Ganon has been hiding!

I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

I think this is the right decision. The world they built for BOTW is truly amazing and I feel it has still a lot of untapped potential.
Now they need to build more actual dungeons.



It is a concern, but it could be perfectly fine:
Fill world up with new enemies
Fill world up with caves / dungeons
Update locations like Tarrytown and Hyrule castle and the divine beasts

To me the world is big enough that I will hav3 forgotten most of it...in fact I think BOTW is too big and I hope there are more options for faster travel. Anyway I’ll reserve judgement until we see way more of the game.

There are so many shrines and towers that you can fast travel to, anything else would practically start to overlap IMO.  It is not like RDR2 where fast travel is almost non existent outside of a few isolated and very specific exceptions.

Yea, and even getting rid of shrines, the towers and glider combo are an easy and fast enough fast travel to anywhere in the game. 



Do you guys think maybe this time, Ganon will be capable of intelligible speech, or will he still be a screaming nightmare creature? I was kinda sad that Calamity Ganon didn't greet Link with an epic villain monologue like in past games.

I would assume he is intelligible. I feel like the two big complaints for BotW, were the lackluster final villain and no proper dungeons. I feel those two will be addressed in the sequel.

Will Ganondorf stay scary mummy like or will he get as fan art is having fun doing "rehydrated" like in the movie the Mummy. I dont' care either way. I do like the Mummy look and hope that hints at new enemies. Fill the world with some redeads, death hands, poes, white wolfos, ect. The more scary, dead like creatures.

The underbelly of Hyrule comes to life in Botw2
