The recently released The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild trailer had further cemented its connection with The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.
The latest game in The Legend of Zelda series is going to have an open-world environment this time, allowing players to explore the dungeons in any order they please. This is a departure from the previously more linear scenarios in the series.
The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild Trailer: Connections with Twilight Princess
Long time fans of the series would be able to immediately spot the connections between the two from the trailer alone. Nintendo has already hinted the connection before, and the signs found in the video confirms it.
Upon closer inspection, the fountain in the background is the same with the Twilight Princess, albeit it is already in ruins this time based on what happened in the plot.
The bird-man enemy also has a semblance to the ones etched in the walls in Hyrule Castle Town from Twilight Princess.
Fans speculate that the timeline for the game took place close to the timeline of the Twilight Princess.
After awaking from a deep slumber, Link has found out that the kingdom of Hyrule is now in ruins. A mysterious voice serves as his only guide, and he eventually learned from an old man that a hundred years prior to the current timeline, the kingdom was destroyed by Calamity Ganon.
Calamity Ganon is currently sealed inside Hyrule Castle, but its chances of breaking free are high as it grows more powerful each day. It is up to Link to stop him before he breaks free.
As posted in The Christian Times, the game is expected to be released next year. The Nintendo Switch version was also confirmed in The Tonight Show, when host Jimmy Fallon had played the demo version of the game, as covered in the Nintendo Wire website.
Based on what’s seen in The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild Trailer, the latest game in the series looks quite promising
