What about “Zelda: BotW 2?”

Back in 2019, Nintendo announced the development of a second part of its own mega game “Zelda: Breath of the Wild”. Since then, many have been eagerly waiting for news, but so far the developer has kept a low profile. Originally, 2022 was announced as the release year, but it has since been pushed back to spring 2023.

Apart from this vague date and a short trailer, there is not much information about the project yet. The storyline probably directly follows the first part; Link and Zelda could be busy rebuilding Hyrule, for example. According to rumors, they won’t have to deal with Link’s eternal adversary Ganondorf again, but instead a new villain is announced.

Even if “Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2” is not among the Nintendo Switch novelties, it promises to be a good year. atechbook will keep you up to date on the sequel and other interesting Switch games in the newsletter, among other things!
