    Got some majoras vibes from the teaser, maybe because it’s not often there’s a direct sequel.
    Definitely has a darker feel, be very interesting to find out the settings, in the trailer, is the castle taking off somewhere? Or erupting somehow?
    Hopefully it's their big Xmas 2020 game.

    I find it a bit odd when people say there were no dungeons in BotW. The Divine Beats were the dungeons. I agree there could have been more, but there absolutely were proper traditional dungeons in the game.
    I get where your coming from, but even the divine beasts didn't feel as, for want of a better term, dugeony as I'd have liked. I can't articulate why very well, but they didnt *feel* the same to me. Fortunately as I'm not a professional writer I don't need to articulate myself better :p

    I'm personally happy they're gone. I wouldn't say no to one, but they're not as fun as the small scale puzzle solving in the shrines. Too much backtracking, which slows the gameplay down. It's what I hate about Ocarina, Wind Waker and Twilight Princess.

    Different strokes to different folks, and all, but I got bored of shrines quite quickly, to the point where I haven't completed over half of them as I just couldn't be bothered.

    Found the shrines pretty dull. And the dungeons I've done so far weren't that great imo. The weakest aspects of the game for me, and basically why I don't think it's an absolute classic. Pretty much everything else is wonderful though. Apart from the cooking. Fuck combining ingredients over and over.

    @MartyrSebastian249 I am sure that the little girl in Kakariko village visits a graveyard where her mother is buried.

    I hope the sequel will add a bit of darkness to the world.
    It's down to all the cultural marxism.

    Japan is awash with SJWs.

    So a game where the bad guy basically won, killed most of the heroes and enveloped the world in a hundred years of terror wasn't dark enough for you?

    I really liked the Shrines.

    I would hate to be forced into long Dungeon sequences, the Divine Beasts were probably my least favourite part of the game.

    Loved the open world with hidden areas/shrines tucked away. It made the world seem so much larger and it was great fun to roam about without an agenda.

    The only improvement would be to add a larger population. The world at times felt a little empty. Would love to see one with bigger cities and more interaction.

    I liked the shrines and divine beasts - personally, I would have liked 4/5 proper dungeons instead of the divine beasts but I wouldn’t want a dungeon to replace the shrines.

    You probably have a good 15 months at least.

    If I didn't have such a backlog, I'd start another play through, definitely my personal GOAT.

    Yes it was disappointing to not experience Hyrule City once it came back to life. Bit like Wind Waker when you couldn’t really get to explore it.

    Hoping this has Hyrule City in all its pomp and glory.

    This is not even mentioning the giant blood red moon, or the fact that most of the main characters you talk to are ghosts.

    They're ghosts BECAUSE THEY ALL DIED.

    Anyway, I liked the shrines. It was nice to have something bite-sized, though I don't think there's really needed to be quite so many of them. A few too many of the test of strength ones, for example.

    But I do hope they try something different for the new one. Even though I loved the first game, I don't really want just more of the same.

    Yes, but the overall tone of the game is not just determined by the post apocalyptic setting. That’s the main issue I had: I felt that most of the characters you meet in the game don’t reflect the world they live in, whimsical rather than fearful or distrustful. Visiting a town felt like an intrusion of the titular “wild” rather than an extension of it.
    I actually liked the tone of the game because for large parts of it you could just ignore all the setting and story and just be link and have fun. Most of the games have link losing his childhood as he is sent on a quest, but this just allowed you to piss around with the emergent gameplay and physics and gives him one. A majority of the puzzles, and korok seeds etc feel like a child's own adventure. It really struck a chord with me.

    Saying that, i wouldn't be adverse to a darker take on the world.

    I found it was a nice contrast to have a game set in a world trying to rebuild in something of a positive spirit after an apocalypse. Even if this one is a bit darker I'd like to keep some semblance of that.

    Loved BOTW but cooking was a bit of a chore. I wish they'd let me pick a recipe rather than have to manually add ingredients. In fact I found dipping in and out of menus pretty dull overall. Would rather weapon selection for example was a long button press / radial menu type system or similar.

    For me the only improvements I’d like to see are :

    - something that allows you to prolong or stop weapon degradation, spells or a fairy or whatever
    - batch cooking (for the love of god)
    - proper post completion playability, not just a save before the final boss
    - better horses/modes of transport

    I found BoTW to be a beautiful game but in some places, especially the mountains and rocks, the textures are horrendous so I'm looking forward to it looking quite a bit prettier.
