The Nintendo Direct on June 15 brought us a spectacular trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2. And, unsurprisingly, it didn’t take long for theories of all kinds to emerge around it.
One of them was that we could control zelda in the game. This is mainly due to the fact that at all times the protagonist appears on his back and with longer hair, although that does not mean that that mane is Zelda’s. In fact most likely one more time only Link can be controlled. However, that hasn’t stopped fans from sharing wild theories of all kinds.
One of them is the one we bring you today. As reported by GamesRadar, Barrett Courtney, a Zelda fan and writer of Kinda Funny, has theorized that the upcoming sequel to Breath of the Wild will feature Gannon as the main character instead of Link and that the game will detail his journey to becoming the villain fans know today. in day.
These are the details that have been shared:
- He points out a scene of the player’s character falling through the air during last week’s E3 trailer, citing that the character’s face is not visible and his right arm appears to be corrupted in some way, possibly from the dark magic that transformed Ganon into the demon he is today.
- Courtney continues by stating that “in this game we will know the downfall of the Ganondorf man and save him from the evil that has ruled him for generations. And in doing so, We will break the cycle started by the Herald of Death
- The Herald of Death was the main antagonist in 2011’s The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, which will receive an HD remaster on Nintendo Switch next month. Courtney claims this is no accident, and believes it was chosen over more popular installments (such as Twilight Princess, Ocarina of Time, and The Wind Waker) because the director Hidemaro Fujibayashi wanted players to know the whole backstory before the next Zelda game was released. He also notes that Nintendo hasn’t announced the full title of Breath of the Wild 2 because could spoil the story of the game
- Although Barrett Courtney’s theory of Breath of the Wild 2 is nothing more than fan speculation, it would certainly be interesting to play as Ganon during his days as a well-meaning hero who fell from grace, and the aspect of avoiding his turn to the side. Dark could open up the series to some new story possibilities down the road.
Obviously, this is just a theory and there is no real indication that it will happen, so it must be taken as such. To really know what the sequel to Breath of the Wild has in store for us, there will be no choice but to wait and see what Nintendo surprises us with next year, which is when this long-awaited title is scheduled to be released.
