He further added, “And while we maintained the distinct gameplay style of the Warriors series, with exciting ‘1 versus 1,000’ battles and a wide variety of playable characters, this will be the only game that lets you experience the world 100 years prior to the events of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild first-hand.” Moreover, in that video, he said that fans of the Zelda series will have to wait for a bit longer” for Nintendo to provide new updates on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2.
