‘The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’ Sequel Listed by French Retailer
Seems international retailers are accidentally listing some games prematurely. Not too long ago, Austrian retailer GameWar had included the release date for Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory on their site. Now, a French wholesaler has listed the upcoming sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” alongside a collector’s edition. This is the same site that listed the Witcher III port for the Switch shortly before it was officially announced by Nintendo. So, there is a good chance we might be getting a trailer in the comings weeks for the sequel.
What may also support this release is that the site WTT also lists the Switch version of the previously mentioned Kingdom Hearts game. This was available on the Austrian site with the release date of November 13th. It could be a sign that the sequel to Breath of the Wild might be released for the holiday season around the same time. I do have to point out that Metroid Prime 4 is also listed, which could go against the theory.
This listing might also just be a placeholder, as there is no official title added. It is just listed as Breath of the Wild 2 and numbering sequels is uncommon for the franchise. We may get some kind of variation on the “Breath of the” concept once it is revealed by Nintendo. This is exciting though, as we haven’t heard anything about this game since its reveal during a Nintendo Direct last year.
