The Nintendo Direct at E3 2021 left us with a spectacular trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2. And, as expected, all fans of the title who were expecting new details about it have already been working on their theories based on every perceived detail.
However, one aspect that stands out is how the first trailer of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 that was shown at E3 2019 showed quite creepy scenes and a dark aesthetic (with a mummified figure resembling Ganondorf), so everything seemed to indicate that it would have a darker tone, similar to Twilight Princess.
However, this new trailer shown just a few days ago at E3 2021 showed quite the opposite, as a burst of light is introduced, and Link is seen (presumably) falling into an open expanse of sunny skies. So it doesn’t look like it will be shrouded in darkness, like Twilight Princess, but rather the opposite and will feature bright, open skies, like in Skyward Sword.
All the elements shown in this new trailer (new floating areas, the paravela, warm-coloured clouds, etc.) lead fans to believe that Breath of the Wild 2 will ultimately look more like Skyward Sword than Twilight Princess. However, there are still a lot of details to be revealed, so we’re bound to be in for more than one surprise between now and launch sometime in 2022. Will there really be a connection? What is certain is that it will have some interesting new features.
