Breath of the Wild 2: Five features the Nintendo sequel needs

Here are five features we want to see in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2.

Breath of the Wild 2 is Nintendo’s biggest upcoming release. Sure, Paper Mario is close too and I’m hyped for it but let’s be real, we know which one is going to be the moneymaker for Nintendo.

While the excitement for the next Legend of Zelda game is huge, there’s not a lot we know on it outside the fact that originally it was supposed to be DLC until they realized there was so much that they wanted to do that it became an entirely new game. Even the trailers have led to much speculation without confirming a thing. Luckily, our minds like to fill in blanks so I have a couple of ideas of what I’d, personally, like to see in the sequel. I save the most controversial for last.


There’s a thing that always plagued me with Breath of the Wild, especially as I’ve started the game way more times than I’ve beaten it. It’s the clothing Link gets in the very beginning. You get some “well-worn” clothing and the descriptions for both items state that they fit comfortably; but, the legs of the pants and the sleeves of the shirt are a bit too short.

Here’s why it bugs me. They repeat (even the Wiki and the strat guide swear by this) that the Slumber of Restoration that Link was placed in and wakes up from at the beginning of Breath of Wild prevents the person in it from any and all aging. So why does Link wake up in only his underpants with the only clothing laying nearby, clothing that looks like Link slightly outgrew?

This means that either:

A) The machine didn’t work entirely correct and Link was still aging just slowly.

B) As the Temple of Time was nearby, there was some sort of time-travel shenanigans in play as in Ocarina of Time.

C) Someone else donated old clothing.

Any of these three could equal fascinating story beats that I’d love to see explored via flashbacks. Primarily the second one which, in my eyes, is the most likely because of the fact that Sean Chiplock, the voice of Falco lookalike Revali, mentioned he had already recorded his lines for the sequel despite, spoiler alert, the characters being long gone by the end of the game… mostly.

Speaking of the Champions…
