Nintendo always saves the biggest surprises for last, huh? Although Nintendo filled its E3 2019 Direct with several surprise messages – like Dragon Quest's hero and Banjo & Kazooie joined Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as playable fighters – was the biggest disclosure right in the end. Nintendo pointed out that The Legend of Zelda: The Breath of the Wilds sequel is already in development and revealed a brand new trailer that drowned further details for the ghostly follow-up of the 2017 title.
When it comes to Breath of the Wild's sequel, we know very little. Nintendo does a very good job of keeping their games under wraps, so the names, history, attitude and characters of the followers are all still relatively unknown. The only thing we know for sure is that the game is made. This new trailer gave us some new details, and from there we can do some trained speculation about what we can expect.
The trailer starts with Link and Zelda explores a dungeon that looks like. Although Link rocked the same look as he did in Breath of the Wild, Zelda has replaced her wardrobe. Although her Breath of the Wild pants and blouse are still there, she has adopted a coat and hood that resembles one of the Link's berries in her Hylian Armor Set. She has also cut her hair and adopted a haircut that is much closer to the only link.
What is much more noticeable is the music being played. The use of synth creates a very spooky atmosphere compared to the Breath of the Wild's soft strings. The sound, although slightly different, has been used for a Legend of Zelda game before: Twilight Princess. The comparisons with Twilight Princess continue throughout the trailer, as Link and Zelda go deeper into the prison.
The duo meets a dark energy that seems to almost infect the area and the creatures around it and it comes from what seems to be mummified like the Calamity Ganon (at least it looks like a male Gerudo). The energy itself is channeled through Ganon. It actually comes from a glowing arm that squeezes the mummy's chest. The army is wrapped in golden jewelry, with patterns similar to Twila's twist symbols ̵
