Nintendo, Never Iconoclast, Picks Most Recent Nintendo Direct to Not Announce GameCube zelda remake we’re sure they’ve already finished, no info about the upcoming mario Moviesbut instead The official title of Surprise Breath of the Wild 2 , it was The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Except, no, sorry about that, we’ll never get out of the habit of calling it Breath of the Wild 2,

Let’s be completely clear here: State’s Tears ,tricks) is one Prima facie sequel of breath of the wild not in a way zelda The Game Has Been A Direct Sequel Since 1987 Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, yes sure, Majora’s Mask followed by Ocarina of TimeAnd phantom hourglass picked up after wind WakerBut tricks there are a few. It’s a game that was built openly from the bits left over when it ended otwHe it seems builds on same base map, which began development as DLC for the previous game. It is beyond any doubt, no matter how splendid, something else breath of the wild, So it is messing with our mind.

It took a couple of weeks to let the title sink in… it didn’t. I’m sure it’s not for you either. I’m sure your mind provides you”botw2“Before it starts struggling to remember if it”tears” or just “tears“Then gets lost wondering if it could be “tears” as if in a rag… and then, yes, we can all agree not to bother.

Come on, it should have been at least The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Tears of the Kingdom, Sure, they may have to drop it in a bigger box to fit it on the cover, but at least it will make some kind of sense. And it’s not like Japan is up against a long title. say hello, Dragon Quest Swords: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors, or, you know, White Princess the Second ~ Yapari Itto ni Ittemo Soujyanakutemo Ok-na Gotsugau Shugi Gakuen Renai Adventure,

And look, we at Kotaku know we’re not alone in this.

Heck, far more people have discovered Kotaku’s coverage of the sequel by searching Google for “BOTW” than anything mentioning tears or kingdoms. People are going to be so slow to turn on this!

It also certainly doesn’t help that when my eyes read “TOTK” the first thing I think of is “TikTok,” and good lord I don’t need that term being unwillingly stamped on my brain any more often than YouTube ads on my phone already do.

Of course, this is distracting us from more important matters, like how we should be organizing international protests to ensure Nintendo doesn’t bloody let weapons break after you tap them against a leaf this time around. Can you imagine? Can you imagine if they didn’t listen to the entire world population’s unanimous agreement that this was a terrible mechanic and the worst aspect of BotW? Yes. Of course you can. It’s Nintendo. I assume they’ll make them break more often, but this time each break permanently reduces your stamina wheel.

This also seems a good time to declare my absolute conviction that BotW2 will be released to overlap the end of the Switch era and the launch of the Switch: Pro of the XL-dom (because they clearly won’t call that a “Switch 2” will they?). As we all know, something happening twice previously is proof of a pattern as eternal as Link fighting Ganon in every era, so just as Twilight Princess overlapped the GameCube to the Wii, and BotW stood straddled with a leg in Wii U and Switch, there’s no doubt in my mind this will happen again. But also, when it doesn’t, no one will remember I predicted it with such certainty in an article about something else.

In the meantime, let’s not fool ourselves. It’s BotW2 in our hearts, and it always will be. I fear for those poor people in Nintendo’s marketing department, crying their kingdom tears at our folly.
