Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Breath of the Wild 2 will take place in the same Hyrule.

If it is indeed the same map that'd be a colossal disappointment and I might not even buy it. 

Might as well have just been DLC if it's not even going to give us a new map to explore. Going from the sublime sense of constant discovery is BOTW to just retreating the same world I've already covered every inch of would be one of the biggest steps down in quality in gaming history. 



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

Yeah, because it will obviously be the exact same map with no changes or new content or additional areas.

Considering how lazy the DLC for BOTW was wouldn't be terribly hopeful they'd do much in terms of new areas. This really does sound like the sort of thing other companies would do as a DLC pack.

Considering what the trend lately is, they'd rather had cut up the BOTW DLC, added tons of color variations to items and then sold every piece for about (at least) 5$ real money.

Aren't you overreacting a bit from a quick line without context?

What's the precedent for Nintendo half-assing a main entry in the Zelda series?

There will plenty of new stuff I’m sure. Being the same Hyrule probably just means that Death Mountain is in the same place. Not that we’re going to find the Aonuma Shrine in exactly the same place.

I'm not saying it will definitely suck, just that this quote worries me as I want a new world to explore.

Given that (apart from MM, which I never could get into) BotW is my least favourite 3D Zelda, I'd be more happy to see them move along.

But then again, since BotW felt to me in the end more like a gigantic tech demo than finished game, maybe this is not a bad thing and they hopefully make a good story with plenty of proper dungeons in what is already nicely created world and that way fix at least some of many of BotW's problems.



Well, that's half the development time as Breath of the Wild right there.
