Nintendo says Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 is "progressing smoothly," more news coming this year

We'll have to hang in there a bit longer

While we didn't get as much news about Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 as we had hoped, we did get a glimmer of hope for later this year. Nintendo's Eiji Aonuma confirmed that development on the game is progressing smoothly, and Nintendo hopes to share more details later on in 2021.

Oh Eiji Aonuma you filthy tease.
Guess I’ll replay BOTW again this year, not that I mind.

Wasn't expecting any update on BoTW 2 today but hey it's reassuring that will finally get something this year after the horrible drought in news from last year.

That was a really crappy way of leading into the SS:HD reveal. I can’t understand why they wouldn’t just dive straight into the trailer and have Aonuma talk about it afterwards and then finish on the update on BotW 2. He even said what we were all thinking so the expectation wasn’t lost on them. Ah well, not the worst thing in the world but still, made the disappointment of no BotW 2 showing sting a bit more than it needed to.

Well what else was he suppose to do? I mean he knows that people want him to talk about BOTW 2 and so to cheer them up, he had to reveal the port in some form. And really that's the first thing that comes to mind more than the port.

As I said, announce Skyward Sword without any preamble and then talk about what’s going on with BotW 2 after the trailer and SS chat. It’s not a big deal, the news is the same either way; it just felt like an odd way to go about it and if anything took some of the wind out of the sails of the excitement around SS:HD.

Yeah I agree they should have done the trailer first, then Aonuma.
My heart skipped a beat when he appeared haha.

I will wait for BOTW2 as long as he needs.

Just hearing "it'll come out this year" would've been nice. But I'm glad to know we'll find out more this year. Sounds like we really could get a special BOTW2 Direct.

Zelda is associated with the color green. Green is associated with Ireland. Ireland is associated with St. Patrick. St. Patrick is associated with St. Patrick's Day. St. Patrick's Day is on 17th March. That’s when we'll have a Zelda Direct.

But seriously, there's a rumour that Nintendo will have announcements for the next 4 weeks.


That would fall exactly on 17th March after yesterday's Direct. It would give Nintendo an opportunity to talk about all things Zelda in more detail, 35th anniversary, Skyward Sword, Age of Calamity DLC, other possible Zelda events and products and maybe, just maybe, a new trailer for Breath of the Wild 2.

Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 at E3 2021 or later at TGA 2021?

this image of Link is how i feel now about Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild 2.
