This could be the first time a subsequent mainline Zelda title is set in Hyrule again.

Unless you count Wind Waker but that was flooded Hyrule and doesn’t count.

Hyrule - Termina - Ocean - Hyrule - Skyloft - Hyrule - Hyrule?
Not counting the handheld games it's:

Hyrule, Hyrule, Hyrule, Hyrule, Termina, Hyrule (sea), Hyrule, Hyrule (before it became Hyrule), Hyrule, Hyrule (BotW2)

So yeeeah, not quite the first time. I count exactly one mainline game NOT set there (even if it hasn't always looked the same every time).

Would you want torch light darkness literally the whole game though? I don't.
Why in the world would the whole game be "torch light darkness"? Are we acting like this is the first time there's freaking underground environments in Zelda?

I nominate this thread for Nintendoomed thread of the year. Some assumptions and posts here are even sillier than people believing there wouldn't be any towns in Breath of the Wild.

Do you guys seriously think there arent going to be new locations? What the hell lol
I don't doubt that there will be new locations, I even suspected as much in that post with the terrain transformation. All I'm saying is that there is definitely something gone from utilizing the same map in terms of exploration. I had the same problem with A Link Between Worlds.

I'm sure it will be a great game but I'd be surprised if it captured that same sense of discovery I had when playing BotW for the first if it is the same general map. I hope I am proven wrong though.

I don’t understand how Zelda got 10 out 10s everywhere yet Nintendo can’t even bother doing voice work for the game you had to read literally everything fair enough it was excusable back then but it’s 2019 now even the cheaper budget open world games have voice work

Any other dev would get a shit ton of complaints for that but because it’s Nintendo oh it’s excusable

And now with this they will reuse the same map Ubisoft does this they rightly get called out for that shit
But Nintendo does this mmmm they will add a lot of new stuff it will be amazing 10 out 10

I'm fine with this being the majora of botw... But it must have some substantial implementations if it's not coming out next year? I mean botw is already two years old. I would think a 3ish year turn around wouldn't be unreasonable.

No date makes me think this could be early 2021? Which to me almost makes me want them to take more time and make it a true follow up? Idk, after botw I trust them to make the right call

I’m talking about 3D games...

Hyrule - Termina - Ocean - Hyrule - Skyloft - Hyrule

Termina is set in a parallel world, not Hyrule.

Hyrule is submerged below the waves in WW (sure some islands are from old Hyrule but it’s a puuuush to say this game is set in Hyrule).

Twilight is Hyrule sure.

Skyward Sword is set in a world before the kingdom of Hyrule has been founded. I’d say this game you could argue as having been set there but personally I wouldn’t agree.

Then breath of the Wild and now this game.

This game won’t get 10 out of 10s, trust me.

It’ll get 11 out of 10s.

Imagine being able to fly alongside the dragons.
Imagine soaring to the peak of Death Mountain.
Imagine skimming so closely to the ocean that the water becomes disturbed beneath you.
Imagine jumping from a ledge from the floating Hyrule castle, and being caught midair by your Loftwing by using your whistle.

Nintendo pls


More thoughts:

Imagine diving from your Loftwing onto a mounted flying enemy below, which triggers you hijacking said enemy and sending it's Rider on a fateful fall.

Imagine a super secret Epona upgrade that turns her into a Pegasus.

Imagine flying Lynels.
Yep, some of this stuff I wanted Skyward Sword to have. They would have to contrive some reason for it not to break exploration/climbing though, which is probably why SS had the separation between the sky and ground sections. If you could only fly in areas you've already explored, it would work. Like you have to clear twilight mist before being able to fly.

BotW did have voice acting and Link's lack of voice was brought up in reviews at the time. As far as reusing assets goes it depends on how they reuse them.

It looks like they’ll be adding an underground and maybe altering some of the terrain after what ever sleeping evil awakens based on the trailer.
