Why We're Worried About Breath Of The Wild 2


The first “Breath of the Wild” helped Nintendo sell over 1.5 million Switch consoles during its first week of release and won several Game of the Year Awards. One of the main concerns that fans have about “Breath Of The Wild 2” is if it can live up to the hype of its predecessor.

High Expectations

On the flip side, there is also the expectation that the sequel needs to improve on what the first game lacked, specifically in the diversity of enemy types. After watching the sequel trailer, a fan on Twitter joked that the title will be “Breath of The Wild: Still only 5 enemy types.”

Lack of Variety

Despite a first look trailer being released at E3 2019 and then another one at E3 2021, there is still no confirmed release date. There also isn’t an official title, with Nintendo continuing to call it "Sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild."

Unclear Info

Finally, fans hope that “Breath of the Wild 2” won’t continue Nintendo's recent trend of amiibo accessories having in-game extras that they have to pay for. Aside from the extra expense, customers were frustrated by the extreme upper hand the extras gave to those willing to pay.

Locked Upgrades

Many of the biggest complaints about the Switch are related to its relatively low image quality and frame rates compared to other modern devices. Since upgraded hardware has yet to be developed, this means that, graphically, the game is unlikely to be able to advance very far beyond its predecessor.
