Theory: The Story Behind Breath of the Wild 2

From the two trailers for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, there is huge speculation surrounding the history of this one. Several questions are pending and no one seems to want to answer them. So much so that even Nintendo refuses to reveal the official name of the next title in the franchise, because it could unveil the story on its own.

The timeline according to the official Nintendo encyclopedia: Hyrule Historia

First of the important things to know is that the saga The Legend of Zelda follows three very specific time curves. It all starts with Skyward sword, then breaks at Ocarina of Time in three segments. The first is where the hero fails and the Kingdom of Hyrule declines until a new hero is born. The second segment is when the young hero wins and the holy realm is sealed again. The last, meanwhile, is when the adult hero seals Ganondorf.

According to Eiji Aonuma, creator of the franchise, Breath of the Wild should not be placed anywhere in this over time as it will “spoil the imagination of the players”.

We want players to be able to continue having fun imagining this world even after completing the game, so this time we decided to avoid issuing any clarifications. I hope everyone can find their own answers, in their own way.

If I go from a hypothesis on all of this, I would just say that the game is at the end of this timeline, but it serves as a junction of the three split lines. Here’s why :

The Temple of Time – Ocarina of Time

In Breath of the Wild, you find the Temple of Time as soon as you leave the ruined Prelude Plateau. This is a clear indication that it is all happening much later in the future. So here we are dealing with the fracture of the timelines called ” The Legend of the Gods & The Hero of Time “.

Here, a Korok! – Wind Waker

Again, the game takes place long after Wind waker since you will find the famous Korok there, these creatures which made their entry in this title for the first time. We are touching here on the adult timeline, the one called ” The Hero of the Wind & The New World “.

Eventide Island – Link’s Awakening

Now let’s add the well-known Eventide Island or, if you prefer, the island Link wakes up on in Link’s Awakening. This is on the timeline where the hero fails, ie ” The Decline of Hyrule & The Last Hero “.

The Great Hylia Bridge – Twilight Princess

Of course, several areas of the game refer to locations seen in previous franchise titles. By the way, we can find the Temple of Time from Skyward Sword. Another example is the Grand Pont d’Hylia which overlooks Lake Hylia and has the same waterfalls in the same places as in the previous title. It demonstrates a connection here with the young hero’s timeline called ” The Dark World & Descendants of the Hero “.


Of course, all does not end here since there is also The Legend of Zelda: Age of Calamity, the game in the genre musou by Nintendo and Koei Tecmo which takes place 100 years before Breath of the Wild! At this time, you will also meet Purah, Impa’s older sister, as an adult. When you complete the game with its secret ending, you can see Purah successfully repairing Terrako, the miniature little guardian who made the time jump in an attempt to prevent the destruction of Hyrule.

So here we have a whole new split in the timeline that is created: the one where our heroes manage to contain the Ganon Scourge and the one where they fail. Will the next title which is baptized for the moment “the continuation of Breath of the Wild” be inspired by the jumps in time for its history? That remains to be seen.

But where will Breath of the Wild 2 be at the end? And what is its title?

For my part, I carried out some meticulous and scrupulous research in order to know more about the potential scenario of Breath of the Wild 2. Here is a house analysis which could prove to be of the most interesting.

First thing: Nintendo gives us Skyward Sword HD

As we all know, Nintendo doesn’t have to be just a “money-making box” – they have a great knack for cross-marketing.

A mummified Ganondorf? What about a plague hemorrhage?

In The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, you learn that the infamous Ganondorf Dragmire, King of the Gerudo, is in fact the famous Ganon, that evil spirit.

In The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Ganondorf is executed by the wise men after Link has been able to warn Princess Zelda of the assault he intends to bring against Hyrule Castle during that famous night in Ocarina of Time. Captured and thrown into the dungeon, he was finally executed a few years later (after Majora’s Mask), but the execution failed and the Prince of Thieves was sent to the Twilight World where, later, he will finally be killed by Link who will stab him with his Master Sword.

Two holes lie where the hand seemed to prevent a plague hemorrhage, the magic sword and the Master Sword?

Could it therefore be that our cronies found a certain catacomb in which Ganondorf lay after being executed by Link during Twilight Princess? Perhaps this could also explain why the hand that seems to stop the plague bleeding looks like Twili magic as well as Midna’s hand.
