Development

Development of the twentieth game in The Legend of Zelda series began in 2017 after the production for Breath of the Wild ended.[2] During the E3 2019 Nintendo Direct it was announced that it would be a sequel to Breath of the Wild.[3] The idea of creating a direct sequel came from the fact that Eiji Aonuma, producer of Breath of the Wild, wanted to revisit the same Hyrule while incorporating a new story and gameplay mechanics.[1] Initially, new ideas were thought for DLC but evolved into a new game when too many were gathered.[4]

When asked about cooperative gameplay or Zelda being a playable character, Aonuma declined to answer.[5]
