The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2’s official title is being kept a secret, and there’s a good reason why.
We first got a tease for ‘Breath of the Wild 2’ at E3 2019, nearly two years ago! Since then, fans have been hoping and praying that we’d finally get to see more of the highly anticipated sequel at any opportunity. This year’s E3 was the answer – we finally got a look at some gorgeous new gameplay.
Up to this point, we’ve been calling the sequel “Breath of the Wild 2”. I mean, it makes sense. After all, it is a sequel to 2017’s ‘Breath of the Wild’. But eagle-eyed fans might have noticed something a little bit different with the E3 2021 trailer.
It seems that the title on any videos related to the sequel has all been changed on the Nintendo YouTube channel.
What Does It Mean?
The new “Breath of the Wild 2” trailer was changed to “Sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild”. This suggests to us that the sequel won’t carry the number 2. According to an IGN interview with Bill Trinen, Nintendo of America’s Senior Director of Product Marketing, that certainly seems to be the case.
