Zelda news coming in new Nintendo Direct
A new report this week suggests that more Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 game details have been revealed. This includes details on how the map of the new game will function along with if Dungeons will be making a comeback. According to a report from Game Rant, the next Legend of Zelda game will use the same map as featured in Breath of the Wild. But while the map will remain the same, more explorable locations will be available, the most notable being the return of Dungeons.
Much of this information comes from YouTuber Tyler McVicker, who provided further insight into how gameplay will work in the Nintendo Switch sequel.
This included news regarding how Ganon will play a role in Link’s next adventure.
“Link has canonically already unlocked his map,” McVicker comments.
“You need to have a contextual story beat within there, and essentially that is that miasmic version of Ganon has overtaken the entire world.”
The report adds that players will not be able to explore the sections of the world that have been taken over by Ganon until they’ve been cleared.
Fans are certainly ready to learn more about Zelda Breath of the Wild 2, which remains shrouded in mystery.
There haven’t been any major updates from Nintendo on its next adventure featuring Link on Switch since 2019.
And fans are hoping that this situation will soon change via a new Nintendo Direct event hosted by the company.
A reliable leaker is claiming that the next Nintendo Direct is happening this week and will include some great news for fans.
The leaker that correctly predicted that E3 was getting cancelled has said a Nintendo Direct is happening this week, according to a post by KitGuru.
And the leaker has also claimed that this upcoming Nintendo Direct for March 2020 will feature a Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 update and Metroid news.
It remains to be seen what the Metroid game the leaker mentioned could be.
Will we, at last, be getting first official footage of Metroid Prime 4, which was announced way back in 2017?
Or could the Metroid game in-question be the rumoured Metroid Prime Trilogy compilation for the Switch or the rumoured Super Metroid Remake?
Other rumoured titles dropping this year include Pikmin 4, Mario Kart 9, Metroid Prime 4, more Wii U ports and a new Paper Mario game.
Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 isn’t expected to have a release date set during 2020, although it would make for the perfect counterweight against the release of the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
But if a recent comment made by Nintendo is anything to go by, the Japanese game giant isn’t worried about the impending market shakeup.
Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa had this to say on the subject, telling investors: “The Nintendo Switch business will soon enter its fourth year, and we believe it is just entering the middle of its life cycle.
“We are looking beyond the next fiscal year to consider how to move forward in the next fiscal year and ones to come.”
Adding: “[It’s] essential to continue our efforts to extend sales of already-released software for a longer period than before.”
Whatever does happen in the coming months, fans are likely to hear more about Zelda Breath of the Wild 2, even if it doesn’t launch this year.
