1. Larger Dungeons

Most of the Dungeons in Legend of Zelda’s Breath of the Wild were shorter and consisted of three-room puzzles, which were off-putting for many players as the game required much more brains than brawn; fans are expecting much more action from Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild 2.

According to players, dungeons need to have more variety in gameplay, and it would be creative to incorporate a lot of traditional and classical features of old Zelda games. A lot of people think that it would be exciting to add a few mazes in dungeons. The addition of a larger dungeon with much more combat could make this RPG game more engaging.

Fans would certainly love a Zelda game that traverses far beyond Hyrule for a change. They often wonder about what can be found beyond the horizons of Hyrule. Land could be seen beyond the border, which is yet to be explored. Since the Breath of the Wild 2’s trailer got released, more people are expecting to finally see what’s beyond Hyrule in Zelda Breath of the Wild 2.

A new land including more characters and areas would surely be more creative and exciting. Throughout the franchise, players were only able to explore Hyrule, which may have gotten repetitive; exploring a new land might just breathe a new life into the franchise that is much needed.

Another upcoming game with an amazing open world is Forspoken. It has all the magical aspects and a beautiful world like BOTW. Learn more about it here: Forspoken: Story, Release Date, Gameplay & Platforms!

3. Deeper Plot

Players would love the new Zelda game to be much more enriched when it comes to story and character development. Many Zelda games lack proper character development for many characters, including Princess Zelda.

It would also be interesting to see a new Zelda game that is well-developed plot-wise. If the game got a treatment equal to Majora mask and Ocarina of Time, fans would certainly be hyped up.

4. Playable Zelda

It has been a long-life dream for many players to experience playing Zelda in the franchise. In the trailer for Breath of the Wild 2, Both Zelda and Link can be seen traveling together on horses. Since Zelda is out there in the field, this might be just the opportunity to add her as a playable character for the first time in the franchise.

Fans think that it would be interesting to swap Zelda and Link during various missions. Zelda assisting Link against various bosses should be an interesting development as well. From the reveal trailer, it certainly seems that Zelda would have a much more significant role in the game, even if she ended up as a non-playable character.

5. Repairable Weapons

Players would certainly love this feature in Breath of the Wild 2. It was tedious and bothersome for a weapon to break after use in Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild. While there were abundant weapons to be found in the game, it was heartbreaking and painful to see your beloved weapon break into pieces with no way to repair it.

Breath of the Wild 2 should try to introduce more interesting weapons in the game with creative designs. With also a method to fix those weapons, players are certainly willing to traverse miles to get materials to repair these weapons. 

6. Rebuilding Hyrule

Hyrule was left in shambles after the events of Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild. It would be interesting if the developers allowed them to work on restoring it. Re-populating towns and making Hyrule better than ever could become an interesting part of the gameplay.

Town customization could also be a great addition to the game. With the customization features, players could redecorate a town to their liking. They could probably do so by gathering resources to build many new buildings and facilities.

7. More Areas

A lot of people are hyped for Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild 2, and some new areas look very interesting in the trailer. They are excited to venture out into these new areas and have a blast.

Fans could see new lands to explore in the trailer, including vast open grasslands, mountains, Caverns, and Castles. Breath of the Wild nailed it when it came to creating an amazing, creative vast open world, and it would certainly be exciting to have a much larger world in Breath of the Wild 2.

8. Large Enemy Variety

Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild has a decent variety of enemies, but considering the large open world, players would have certainly loved more anime variety. Fans are expecting a much larger enemy variety in Breath of the Wild 2.

It is expected that many of the old enemies would reoccur in Breath of the Wild 2. However, the addition of new enemies might make the game seem more refreshed. 

9. Underground Explorations

A lot of people expressed their desire to have underground exploration in Breath of the Wild 2. Breath of the Wild had an amazing open world that can further be improved with the addition of underground exploration.

The Underground areas would certainly give players much more to explore and beat many new bosses for exciting gameplay. Moreover, it might also give fans opportunities to mine for new materials.

Swimming in Legend of Zelda breath of the Wild 2 was often tedious due to poor mobility. Moreover, it lacked a lot of depth and creativity. There was not much in the game when it came to underwater exploration.

Fans want a dive option in the Breath of the Wild 2. With the dive ability, players would be able to traverse areas underwater. Exploring the underwater world would certainly improve the experience of many players.

With that we wrap up with the list of things that fans want from Breath of the Wild 2! The first game was amazing and we’re sure that the sequel will be equally amazing.
