Wasn’t everyone of those a different engine though? BotW 2 is the same engine as BotW, so it should get out much quicker then previous Zelda’s
Same engine and same map too.
Well same map is not for sure. Just because the first teaser showed the same landscape with hyrule castle does not mean we get the same map.
In fact this would be very not-Nintendo to reuse the same map. I guess the waking of Ganondorf will transform the landscape in some way, could make it apocalyptical.
But we will see. The trailer of BotW also played a lot with us by showing a Hyrule before it was ruined but we never got to visit that.
