Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 release date news: 2020 launch boost for Nintendo Switch?
Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 is arguably the biggest Nintendo Switch game on the horizon, with fans currently waiting for the next big BoTW 2 update. The last time Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 surfaced was during its surprise E3 2019 reveal. At the end of the Nintendo Direct held during the major gaming expo the first ever Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 trailer was revealed.
This showed Link and Zelda exploring a Hyrule looking much worse for wear, with it appearing Breath of the Wild 2 will have a darker tone than BoTW.
It’s possible that Breath of the Wild 2 could be the Majora’s Mask to Breath of the Wild’s Ocarina of Time in terms of tone and feel.
It remains to be seen when Nintendo will next update Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 fans with new footage or a release date announcement.
It’s possible that news could come at the Game Awards next week, with the original Breath of the Wild featuring at three previous TGA events.

Given Breath of the Wild’s past history with the Geoff Keighley fronted event, BoTW 2 could potentially next surface at this year’s Game Awards.
And ahead of the event taking place next week Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 fans may have been given an update on the game’s release date.
While most retailers currently have Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 as having a ‘to be announced’ release date, one store has listed a date.
Online retailer Base.com is currently taking pre-orders for Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 and have listed a date for when it’s “due for release”.
Base.com has listed Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 as having a release date in 2020, specifically on December 30.
It remains to be seen if Breath of the Wild 2 launches then, with the date likely to be a placeholder for when the next Zelda game will be out.

But it is interesting Base are listing BoTW 2 as having a release date during 2020 when other shops aren’t nailing their colours to the mast on that front.
It remains to be seen when Breath of the Wild 2 will get launched, and whether Nintendo reveals more on BoTW 2 this year.
As mentioned earlier, it’s possible Breath of the Wild 2 could feature at the upcoming Game Awards 2019 event.
For fans in the UK, they’ll be able to tune in to all the announcements from the event in LA from the early hours of Friday December 13.
It’s rumoured that some other big Nintendo announcements could also be taking place during the Game Awards 2019.
Nintendo are still yet to announce the fifth and final DLC character for the first Smash Bros Ultimate Fighters Pass.
And there’s a good reason why the fifth DLC character for Smash could be announced at The Game Awards 2019.
Last year’s event was where the first Smash Bros DLC character – Joker from Persona 5 – was revealed.
Nintendo are also rumoured to have two unannounced Metroid games in the works in addition to Metroid Prime 4.
One of these titles is a Metroid Prime HD Trilogy compilation, the other is a remake of classic SNES title Super Metroid.
It’s believed this will be in a similar vein to the Game Boy remake of Samus Returns.
