Ever the icons, Nintendo chose the latest Nintendo Direct to announce the lack of a GameCube Zelda We’re sure they’re already over, no info about the future Mario Moviebut instead A surprise reveals the official title of Breath of the Wild 2 . she was The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Except, no, sorry about this, we will never be able to get rid of the habit of calling her Breath of the Wild 2.
Let’s be very clear here: Kingdom tears (tutk) he is directly sequel to Breath of the wild in no way Zelda The game has been a live sequel since 1987 Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. Yes, of course, Majora mask followed by ocarina of timeAnd the phantom hourglass picked up after Wind Wickerbut tutk another thing. This is a publicly created game from the remaining parts upon completion OTWwhich – which Seemingly builds on Same base map, which started development as a DLC for the previous game. This, no doubt, no matter how cool, some more Breath of the wild. That’s why this messes with our brains.
With a couple of weeks to allow the title to sink… it didn’t. I bet it doesn’t suit you either. I bet your mind gives you”BotW2“Before you start to struggle to remember whether”Tearsor just “tears”and then gets lost wondering if it could be ‘tears’ as in rips…and then, yes, we can all agree not to bother.

Come on, it should have been at least The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Tears of the Kingdom. Sure, they’d probably have to edit it out in a bigger box to fit everything on the cover, but at least it would make some kind of sense. And it’s not as if Japan is loathing the long title. say hello, Dragon Quest Swords: The Masked Queen and the Tower of Mirrors. Or, you know, The Second White Princess ~ Yappari Itto ni Ittemo Soujyanakutemo OK-na Gotsugou Shugi Gakuen Renai Adventure.
And look, we’re in my box I know we are not alone in this.
Die, far DISCOVER MORE PEOPLE my boxCovering the sequel by searching Google for “BOTW” more than anything mentioning Tears or Kingdoms. People will be too slow to turn this on!
It also certainly doesn’t help that when my eyes read “TOTK,” the first thing I think of is “TikTok,” and I don’t need that term inadvertently stamped in my mind any more than YouTube ads on the phone already.
Of course, this distracts us from more important matters, such as how we should organize international protests to ensure that Nintendo does not allow weapons to break after clicking against a sheet of paper this time. Can you imagine? Can you imagine if they hadn’t listened to the world population’s unanimous agreement that this was a terrible mechanic and the worst aspect of OTW? yes. Certainly you can. It’s Nintendo. I suppose it would make it break more often, but this time every break permanently lowers the wheel of stamina.
This also seems like a good time to state my absolute conviction of that BotW2 It will be released to overlap with the end of the Switch era and the launch of Switch: Pro of the XL-dom (because they obviously won’t connect who – which A” switch 2“Will they?). As we all know, something happening twice earlier is evidence of an eternal pattern like Link Fight Ganon in every era, just like Twilight Princess GameCube overlapped with Wii, and OTW I stood tangled up with a leg in the Wii U and Switch, no doubt this would happen again. But also, when it doesn’t, no one will remember that I predicted it with such certainty in an article about something else.
In the meantime, let’s not kid ourselves. it’s a BotW2 In our hearts, and always will be. I fear for those poor people in Nintendo’s marketing department, crying their kingdom’s tears over our folly.
