Nintendo: Breath of the Wild 2’s name is a secret because subtitles “start to give little bits of hints about maybe what’s going to happen”

IGN did an E3 2021 interview with Nintendo Treehouse’s Bill Trinen and Nate Bihldorff, where they revealed why the official name for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2. The pair suggested that there is going to be a subtitle for the game, but they’re just not ready to reveal what it is yet.

Trinen said that “as for why we’re holding back on the name, you’ll just have to stay tuned because, obviously, Zelda names are kind of important. Those subtitles…they start to give little bits of hints about maybe what’s going to happen”. In the meantime, Trinen says that “[Breath of the Wild 2] is going to be shorthand and it’s natural for people to want to find a shorthand way to frame it. We’re still calling it the sequel to Breath of the Wild”.



  1. I figured this was the case. The subtitle probably references a story element that they’re not yet comfortable announcing. The trailer we got today was short and mainly showed off gameplay elements. The title should be announced hand-in-hand with the reveal of why the title matters.

  2. The drop of the water in reverse, may indicate time reversal? May take some elements of the Infinity Stone’s time stone? Hyrule warriors is all about time travel, and this could be the case as well?

  3. I’m okay with the name not being revealed yet; I’m still trying to process what we saw of the game earlier. It was both just enough, and not enough to get a better idea of what’s happening.

  4. Get to explore above the clouds. Fi was speaking through the MS in BotW. We got a mummified Ganondorf. We also have possibly the most powerful version of Ganon yet. The Legend of Zelda: Revival of Demise!? shrug

  5. Has anybody thought of the character shown being Zelda and not Link? The body looks that of a female, plus the long hair. They never show the face on the long hair scenes.

    1. We know its link because his hand is all weird. In the teaser 1 we see something absorbed into links hand. Body shape is also masculine

  6. Sorry Zelda Fanbase, I can’t give title, come back when it’s a little more…mmmm…developed!

  7. Plot Twist! The Dev Team haven’t made the story for the game yet and they are making it now, which is why they don’t have a title!
    Lol imagine if that was the case, since story always come last in development for a Zelda game.
