Nintendo made waves when it revealed in E3 2019 that a sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was already in the works. While we’ve yet to get a full glimpse of the game, fans already have their theories about it.
Not a lot has been revealed about the sequel yet, but basing on the reveal trailer alone, fans already know some of the things that could be coming to the game. In fact, there could be some features from the first game that won’t make it to the sequel.
Towers and Guardian Temples
Considering that Link has already explored Hyrule in the first game, it’s no longer proper to have him climbing towers to get the layout of the land again. In exchange for this, the developers will add a miasma to the world map that players will have to clear through before they move forward. This means the open-world elements will be limited this time around.
As for the Guardian Temples, it’s unlikely that Nintendo will bring these back as doing so means players will have to go through the puzzles and challenges again. These were a great part of the first game, but as they could be removed, Nintendo will need to add something to fill the void. The good thing is that dungeons are back in this Legend of Zelda game.
Guardians might be removed from the game as well, considering Calamity Ganon has already been dealt with. Nintendo needs to add something more menacing than these mechanical monsters.
Guardians weren’t just intimidating enemies in the game; they are also a central plot piece. They are the very reason why Hyrule lost to Calamity Ganon. Now that what’s controlling them is gone, it’s sensible that they’ll be as well. It’s going to be exciting to see how Nintendo plans to replace these robots.
In the first game, there was a total of 900 Korok Seeds to collect around Hyrule. While the job itself was taxing, it forced players to explore the map without them knowing it.
Players weren’t really fond of collecting all Korok Seeds, and Nintendo knows that. There’s a chance that these collectibles won’t be found in the sequel anymore. However, Nintendo could introduce new collectibles to find instead. Hopefully, it won’t reach 900 again.
Nintendo has been very quiet about the sequel to this Nintendo Switch classic, and hopefully, they get to reveal more details about it soon as fans are eager to see Link’s next adventure.
