With this formula, BigN takes the position of offering absolute freedom to players, the experience being above all focused on exploration. No overloaded map with tons of points of interest or towers to climb to synchronize your map, it is up to the player to apply markers on the map themselves and go there to find out what is hidden. Another strong point, everything visible can be visited by the player, a feature/philosophy taken up in Elden Ring, the latest from the From Software studio.

Declared game of the year 2017, it was certain that Zelda BOW (for friends) was going to have a sequel. At E3 2019, Nintendo confirms its existence: Zelda Breath of The Wild 2 will indeed land on Nintendo Switch. And then radio silence until June 2021, when the Japanese manufacturer broadcasts a brand new trailer during E3 2021, revealing in passing that Link’s adventures will also take place in the skies, like a certain Zelda Skyward Sword.
