Story

As it is a sequel to Breath of the Wild, this game focuses on Link and Zelda uncovering the mysteries of ancient Hyrule. In the original teaser, they are seen in an underground area, possibly beneath Hyrule Castle, where they find a corpse, which reanimates itself, causing the land around the castle to rise out of the ground. This body can be seen brandishing a Gerudo insignia on a golden medal, as well as having long red hair. It is speculated that the corpse is Ganondorf.

In the second video, it starts off with the screen covering with Malice. Then it shows Link skydiving through the air, with multiple islands below him floating. It next shows him back at Hyrule, fighting a Stone Talus with a Bokoblin camp on top. Then it shows Link fighting monsters with a possible new rune, then going through a floating island. The video concludes with Hyrule Castle floating out of the ground.

Graphics

This game largely uses assets from Breath of the Wild, as seen in the initial trailer. The art-styles are identical from what has been shown so far.
