Indiscretions on Nintendo Switch and the next chapter of The Legend of Zelda, or Breath of the Wild 2, have been taking place for some time. Now, however, through the pages of 4chan, then bouncing back to ResetEra, an absolutely unverifiable but extremely interesting rumor appears. The new game dedicated to the hero of Hyrule will be called The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Darkness. And will be released between the end of 2020 and the beginning of 2021 on Nintendo Switch Pro. Or, as defined in the rumor, “Switch 2”.
The name would suggest that this new chapter would aim at a much more obscure style. A thousand-year threat, according to the description given by the rumor, has awakened and only the powers of the Tri-force can stop it. The release on a new console would make it possible to have a much richer game on a visual level. With more particle effects and light. Furthermore, Nintendo Switch Pro would be an exclusively fixed console that would, therefore, close the circle together with Lite and the standard.
Furthermore, it is not the first time that the Legend of Zelda Breath of the Darkness (we use this name for now) is being speculated on a new Nintendo console. Fans have indeed noticed that Switch was released along with the first Breath of the Wild, while Lite will be released on the same day as Link’s Awakening. Pro should, therefore, go out with Breath of the Darkness, according to fan logic.
We underline that this is a rumor, not a reliable base, but in this case, it is even less than usual since the source is 4chan, known to be not very credible. In any case, it’s nice to speculate and try to imagine how the game could be. Tell us, do you like the idea of a “Breath of the Darkness” on Nintendo Switch Pro?
