Always Iconoclass Nintendo Chose Latest Nintendo Direct To Announce No GameCube Zelda the rework, we’re sure they’re finished, nor any information about the upcoming Mario moviebut instead surprise-reveal official title Breath of the Wild 2 . It was The Legend Of Zelda: The Tears of the Kingdom. Except no, sorry about that, we’ll never be able to overcome the habit of naming him Breath of the Wild 2.

Let’s explain here: Kingdom tears (TotK) is direct continuation Wild Breath in some ways not Zelda the game is a direct continuation from 1987 Zelda II: The Link Adventure. Yes of course, major mask continued from The Ocarina of Timeand Ghostly hourglass received after Wind alarm clockbut TotK that’s something different. It is a game that was opened up with the bits left after completion OTWthat seemingly is based on same basemapwhich started as a DLC for the previous game. This is without a doubt, no matter how brilliant, a little more Wild Breath. That’s why it messes with our brains.

It took a few weeks for the title to be remembered… it didn’t. I bet it’s for you too. I bet your brain offers you “BotW2“Before trying to remember if it is”Tears“Or just “Tears”Then gets lost, wondering if it’s possible for the“ tears ”to be like rips… and then, yes, we can all agree, so as not to bother.

Come on, at least it should be The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Tears of the Kingdom. Sure, maybe they’d have to release it in a bigger box to get it all on the cover, but at least it would make some sense. And it’s not that Japan is against the long title. Say hello, Dragon Quest Swords: Masked Queen and Mirror Tower. Or you know The White Princess the Second ~ Yappari Itto ni Ittemo Soujyanakutemo OK-na Gotsugou Shugi Gakuen Renai Adventure.

And look, we are on my box I know we’re not alone in this.

Cholera, far more people discovered my boxrelates the sequel, searching Google for “BOTW” than anything that mentions tears or kingdoms. People will be so slow to turn it on!

It certainly doesn’t help either that when my eyes read “TOTK” the first thing I think about is “TikTok” and good god I don’t need to reluctantly stamp that term in my brain more than YouTube ads on my phone already do. .

Of course, it distracts us from more important issues, such as how we should organize international protests to make sure Nintendo does not allow the weapon to be broken after you stick it to the leaf this time. Can you imagine? Can you imagine they did not obey the unanimous agreement of the entire world population that it was a terrible mechanic and the worst aspect OTW? Yes. Of course you can. It’s Nintendo. I assume they will make them break more often, but this time each break will permanently reduce your endurance wheel.

It seems to me that this is also a good time to declare my absolute belief that BotW2 will be released to overlap with the end of the Switch era and the launch of Switch: Pro with XL-dom (as they clearly won’t ring that Switch 2“Will they be?) As we all know, something that happened twice before is evidence of a pattern as eternal as Link battling Ganon in any age, so likewise dusk princess put on GameCube on Wii i OTW I straddled my leg on the Wii U and Switch, I have no doubt it will happen again. But also, if it does not happen, no one will remember that I foresaw it with such certainty in an article about something else.

Meanwhile, let’s face it. His BotW2 in our hearts and it will always be so. I fear for those poor people in Nintendo Marketing who are crying tears of kingdom over our madness.
