Bill Trinen of the Nintendo Treehouse couldn’t reveal anything new about the game itself, but told IGN a lot about what The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 is. One topic in particular is about comparisons with Majora’s masks, and whether the game really is its own.
Trinen understands why this is happening for the time being. He told IGN: “Given the content I’ve shown so far and the nature of being a direct sequel, I think jumping at this point is a simple comparison or conclusion, so I understand that people are drawing that conclusion. But at the same time-and I don’t want to dig too deep into it-but this is a game of its own. “He also compares how Majora’s mask reused some of his predecessors. Does not seem to be perfectly fair. So it will be a little more clear where the game stands on its own and what makes it so unique.
Finally, Trinen also said, ” [this sequel] It is built on the Breath of the Wild. Breath of the Wild was a very vast game with so many layers of linking abilities and layers to gameplay … I think this would be quite a lot of layers to it. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 will be released on Nintendo Switch next year.
