Feels a bit cheap of Nintendo to bait fans by teasing story development that wasn't in Breath of the Wild behind a shallow Warriors game. I'm not sure how much they can really say anyway, since people who played BoTW know the eventual consequences of those 100 years and I really don't trust Koei to be able to fill in the blanks in any kind of meaningful way. I'll pass.

There is so much lore in the world of Botw that weren't really explained or said in the main story. This is so exciting to know they worked closely with the Zelda team and this was Aonuma's idea to make this game. So i'm sure it means they wanted to give out more story, which i think is a good sign for the sequel since maybe they learned from their mistakes of just going on the surface with Botw.

But yea, i'm expecting something more story focused and of big quality. They will def give more background or else there would be no point of Zelda team getting so involved. Zelda Botw 2 should be late spring 2021 at best now.

Well they did say they were working close with the Zelda team on this one. 



It's more Breath of the Wild. Which is good.
But it's a Warriors game. Which is bad.
It's also what the second part of the BotW DLC should have shown. Which is dirty.

I think I'm gonna pass. Hyrule Warriors was fun for about 10 hours. Then it became as boring and repetitive as it can get. Unless they apply significant changes to the formula to prevent those problems, I have no interest in this game.



Well there goes my last hope of having BotW2 as a holiday game this year. This does look very cool and it'll be my first Warriors game ever. I do hope there's something actually developed by Nintendo for the November/December slot.



Signature goes here!

You son of a bitch.

And there's another random game just announced with no direct like Paper Mario was.

A new Hyrule Warriors is a good idea considering how popular the first 1 turned out to be. It will be interesting to see how the BOTW engine holds up to Warriors-style gameplay with hundred of characters on screen. It'll also be interesting to see how much of the BOTW formula is brought over. The first game and Fire Emblem Warriors did pretty good jobs in terms of using their source series to give the games enough of a twist to stand out from the usual Dynasty Warriors fare.

And we're looking at a Halo Reach/Torna Country situation since the ending is already known.



Loving the art style so far, pretty hyped for this overall and will be pre-ordering ASAP. Nintendo just went from 0 to 60 in the past week with the 3D All-Stars and this game, along with Animal Crossing and the evergreen library the Switch already has they will continue to fly of shelves. I think people are going to be surprised with the overall sales performance of this game, BotW has made the Zelda series even bigger than it already was (it has outsold Odyssey...).



Nintendo with the Switch:

Huh, i almost started a theory thread about how alot of "debunked" leaks were actually true. B4 odyssey released a leaker claimed there was a new game coming where bowser was the main character. Then when odyssey released it turns out u played as bowser for a while. Memba how a leaker claimed in botw2 u were gonna play as zelda. Bet u they were unknowingly referencing this game.
