The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild it was one of the most successful games in the franchise; according to some it is even one of the best video games of all time. Given the overwhelmingly positive reception, many fans were thrilled when Nintendo announced The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 during E3 2019: according to a leaker, the title would still be scheduled for 2022.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 arriverà nel 2022

This leak comes from the insider note Samus Hunter on Twitter. According to her, Nintedo still hopes to release Breath of the Wild 2 this fall, without also ruling out the possibility of postponing the game until 2023. According to the leaker, the company’s top plans aren’t likely to make a final decision until April.

If Nintendo does end up postponing the launch, it is unlikely that we will hear any news about the game before next May. Of course at the moment there is no reliable information in this regard, but Samus Hunter has proved to be quite reliable in the past, so his prediction is not to be discarded a priori.

In any case, Nintendo seems to want to keep some secrecy regarding Breath of the Wild 2, which we remember is not even the real name of the game, given that the company has yet to reveal the official title. Lack of information is necessarily an indication of development problems however, and Nintendo may simply prefer to postpone official communications until it is truly ready to reveal them.

At least the E3 2021 trailer allowed us to get a brief taste of the gameplay of Breath of the Wild 2, showcasing enemies, environments and new mechanics. Most notable are Link’s new set of powers, including a telekinetic boost and the ability to pass through solid objects.
