Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 is Getting Made Because Nintendo Had Too Many DLC Plans

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is often considered by many to be one of the best open-world video games ever made and it only came out in 2017. After numerous delays, Breath of the Wild proved to be worth the wait and is considered by many to be the gold standard when it comes to open-world gaming these days. Fans figured that it would take years before we hear about a new Zelda game but Nintendo shocked everyone by revealing that a sequel is in development.

But why is Breath of the Wild 2 being made? Couldn't Nintendo just ass more DLC? Those are questions that fans had after they saw the trailer and series producer Eiji Ounuma has a fairly interesting answer for fans. When asked by Kotaku about the sequel, apparently it was done because there were too many new ideas for the game's DLC.

"When we released the DLC for Breath of the Wild, we realized that this is a great way to add more elements to the same world. But when it comes down to technical things, DLC is pretty much data--you're adding data to a preexisting title. And so when we wanted to add bigger changes, DLC is not enough, and that's why we thought maybe a sequel would be a good fit."

Funnily enough, this isn't the first time Nintendo made a sequel after too many DLC ideas. Super Mario Galaxy 2 was made after plans for the first game's expansion were scrapped, due to the number of ideas that the developers came up with. It's good seeing a lot of creative ideas being put to good measure and we can't wait for Breath of the Wild 2.

No release date for the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel was announced.
