Nintendo always has the biggest surprises in store, right? Although Nintendo filled out its E3 2019 Direct with several surprise announcements – such as Dragon Quest's The Hero and Banjo & Kazooie, which joined Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as playable fighters – the biggest revelation came to an end. Nintendo reiterated that the sequel to "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" is already under development, and unveiled a brand new trailer teasing further details for the scary sequel to the 2017 title.
When it comes to breath of the wilderness, we know very little. Nintendo does a very good job of keeping its games under wraps, so the name, story, setting, and characters of the sequel are still relatively unknown. Really, the only thing we know for sure is that the game is being made. However, this new trailer has given us some new details, and from there we can make some well-founded speculations about what to expect.
The trailer begins with Link and Zelda exploring a cave that looks like a dungeon. Although Link has the same look as in Breath of the Wild, Zelda has changed her wardrobe. Although Breath of the Wild's pants and blouse are still there, she chose a cape and hood similar to Link's in his Hylian armor set. She has also cut her hair and taken a haircut that is much closer to Link's.
What is far more conspicuous is the music being played. The use of synth creates a much scary atmosphere compared to the soft strings of Breath of the Wild. Although the sound is slightly different, he has already been used for a Legend of Zelda game: Twilight Princess. The comparisons with Twilight Princess continue throughout the trailer as Link and Zelda plunge deeper into the dungeon.
The duo encounters a dark energy that seems to almost infect the area and the creatures around it, and seems to come from what appears to be the mummified corpse of Calamity Ganon (at least it looks like a male gerudo) , However, the energy itself is only channeled through Ganon. It actually comes from a glowing arm that clings to the breast of the mummy. The arm is wrapped in gold jewelry with motifs very similar to Twilly's twisted symbols ̵

We then see a sequence of fast-paced scenes. The first shows how Link seems to be trying to channel and use the energy that lights up the glowing arm. The next sees the dark energy racing into the ceiling. This is followed by a shot of Link and Zelda touching each other before opening a crypt. Then we see Zelda's hand grabbed by the glowing arm and (maybe) a look back at Calamity Ganon, who first encounters the shady creature that belongs to that arm. The presence of Link and Zelda then seems to awaken something in the grave as the ground begins to crumble and the mummified corpse turns to face her and open her eyes with vehement hatred. The trailer ends with Hyrule Castle rising from the ground and a splash of glowing blue energy – which is similar to the magic used by the Twili (especially Midna, Zant, and the other powerful leaders).
What It Could Mean
Of course, all comparisons to Twilight Princess could not mean anything. Some people complained that Breath of the Wild was simply not dark enough in the story. A similar complaint was made to The Wind Waker and Nintendo responded with Twilight Princess. The sequel to Breath of the Wild might just look like Twilight Princess, as Nintendo only makes an adaptation similar to the mid-2000s. That said, it's a relatively plausible theory to speculate that Twili and Twilight Realm will be included in the sequel to Breath of the Wild. Early drafts of the original story of Breath of the Wild refer to the involvement of aliens . Obviously this has been shortened. However, the Twili are a bit alien to the people of Hyrule. The dimension they live in could also be on another planet, and the last time they came to Hyrule (the events of Twilight Princess) it was an invasive force.
The events of Twilight Princess are also mentioned directly in Breath's Wilderness. When Link is hired as the next hero of Hyrule and receives the master sword, Zelda refers to the previous heroes of the country. "[Link, you] has proved worthy of the blessing of the goddess of Hylia," says Zelda. "Going to heaven, drifting in time or immersed in the glowing twilight … The sacred blade is forever bound to the soul of the hero." If Twilight Princess is canonical before the events of Breath of the Wild, then the Twilight Realm exists in the timeline of this Zelda game. Zelda's decision to look left and join him on his next adventure could be a co-op element. If you do not cooperate, this time at least Zelda is playable. It would be pretty cool to finally play as the princess who wears the title of franchise.
