What is The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild 2's Real Name? Nintendo Confirms Why They've Not Revealed It

After two years of waiting, we finally got an update on Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's sequel during Nintendo's E3 2021 conference. While we didn't get any direct gameplay footage, Nintendo revealed a brand new trailer and confirmation of a 2022 release date.

However, we still don't know what the game's actually called. While many have tentatively called it The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild 2, questions about the name emerged during an IGN interview that followed their presentation, and Bill Trinen gave us further insights.

What is The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild 2's Real Name? Nintendo Confirms Why They've Not Revealed It

Confirming there is a proper subtitle for this game, Trinen advised IGN's interviewer:

As for why we’re holding back on the name, you’ll just have to stay tuned because, obviously, Zelda names are kind of important. Those subtitles… they start to give little bits of hints about maybe what’s going to happen

Considering previous entries had names which referred to important items - Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask and Wind Waker being key examples - it's not hard to understand why they're keeping this secret. For now, Trinen confirms "We’re still calling it the sequel to Breath of the Wild". An imminent reveal seems unlikely, but we'll keep you informed once we know.
