Nintendo surprised many with an underwhelming E3 showcase but managed to excite fans with the announcement of a new installment in the iconic Metroid franchise and fresh glimpses of the highly-anticipated sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The latter finally received a release timeframe set for 2022, along with previews of its intriguing gameplay features and environments. Despite the buzz surrounding these revelations, a major question still lingers over the game: what will it be officially called?

Since its unveiling at E3 2019, the game has been commonly referred to as “the follow-up to Breath of the Wild” or simply “Breath of the Wild 2” in casual discussions, yet neither of these are its true title. Nintendo has maintained a veil of secrecy around the actual name of the game, and while that secrecy persists, they have provided a rationale for this decision.

“The reason behind withholding the title will be revealed in due time, as the name is crucial in the world of Zelda,” remarked Bill Trinen of Nintendo Treehouse in an interview with IGN. “These titles… they often carry subtle hints about the game’s content.”

This notion is not unfounded; Zelda titles often contain allusions to pivotal story elements and significant artifacts, from the Twilight Princess to the Ocarina of Time, implying that the concealed title holds substantial importance, hence the decision to keep it under wraps. Nonetheless, for the time being, Nintendo is content with enthusiasts continuing to refer to it as “Breath of the Wild 2.”

“The moniker [Breath of the Wild 2] serves as a placeholder, and it’s natural for the community to seek an abbreviated identifier. We are sticking with calling it the sequel to Breath of the Wild,” mentioned Trinen.

js.src = “//”;
fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);

setTimeout(loadFB, 0);
document.body.addEventListener(‘bimberLoadFbSdk’, loadFB);
