A strong line of DLC was provided for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, even though Zelda isn't usually known for its strong relationship with DLC. Fans were treated to vast new combat challenges through downloadable expansions and were able to upgrade their Master Sword.
Even though Nintendo made sure Breath of the Wild didn't overstay its welcome, it ended its DLC support at the end of the game's lifetime. Still, the circumstances of the IP make one wonder whether one more expansion is possible.
The Zelda fans are anticipating Breath of the Wild 2 with bated breath since Nintendo confirmed in 2019 that it would release a direct sequel. This kind of sequel is rare in Nintendo's flagship action-adventure franchise, but the first game was such a success that it only makes sense.
After Zelda: Breath of the Wild concludes, Hyrule has been reassured of its safety. Calamity Ganon is defeated, and Link and Zelda have been reunited. Unlike many Zelda games, Breath of the Wild doesn't spend much time with Link and Zelda, but by the game's end, they have been fully reunited.
Although a BotW2 prologue would be great for Breath of the Wild, a two-player DLC would be even better. During the prologue, players can switch between Link and Zelda, with each character solving Hylian problems and rebuilding Hyrule's cities and towns with their unique skills.
Breath of the Wild's ending reveals that Link and Zelda will travel together to undo the destruction brought about by Calamity Ganon, a rare sight for Zelda fans. By allowing two players to play the adventure together, you would be able to experience those unique circumstances.
There is a long-standing fan hope for the series that a two-player BotW2 prologue with playable Zelda may be the best compromise. In Breath of the Wild 2, there's still a chance fans will be able to play as Princess Zelda, but Nintendo's history of avoiding this possibility doesn't inspire much confidence.
Nintendo has surprised fans a few times recently by bringing back old games, so it doesn't seem very likely that it will add a new DLC to Breath of the Wild since it was released five years ago. A massive update was made to Super Mario Party's online multiplayer last year, two and a half years after the game was released.
Despite not confirming anything for Breath of the Wild, these late updates do at least open the door to a surprise update. Nintendo certainly has good reasons to make another final DLC for Breath of the Wild as well. After all, it isn't just one of the best-selling Switch titles, it's one of the best-selling video games ever.
If there aren't any further delays, Breath of the Wild 2 is still nine months away. All things considered, Nintendo still has plenty of time to come up with a surprise. For the Nintendo Switch, the sequel to Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be released in spring 2023.
