Sequel to Breath of the Wild








A sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was announced during the Nintendo Direct at E3 2019. A short teaser trailer was released, though not much is known of the game itself. It is currently in development, with no release window.

In the Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity announcement video, Eiji Aonuma said:

"Regarding the [Breath of the Wild] sequel, in order to make the vast world you enjoyed exploring in the original game even more impressive, the team is working hard on its development, so you'll have to wait a bit longer before we can provide more updates."

— Eiji Aonuma, September 8, 2020

While this represents the first official mention of the Breath of the Wild sequel since the original announcement, no further details were provided.

In the most recent Nintendo Direct on Eiji Aonuma announced:

"I’m sure a lot of you saw me and thought there might be news about the sequel to the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild game.Unfortunately, we don’t have anything to share right now. We apologize. Development is proceeding smoothly, and we should be able to bring you some new information this year. For now, we’ll have to ask you to wait just a bit longer."

— Eiji Auonuma, February 17th, 2021

This implies that we will hopefully be getting more news and/or a new trailer for the Breath of the Wild sequel at E3 (which Nintendo will be participating in this year), a Nintendo Direct, or at another event this year.


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 trailer, 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.


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.
