Zelda: BotW2 'Near Completion' Rumours Were Fuelled by Mistranslation - Status Remains Unknown

Is it done? Is it coming? Is it still far away? GIVE US SOMETHING, NINTENDO!

The Nintendo Switch is pretty synonymous with its pilot release - The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Winning TGA's Game of the Year award and multiple other accolades, the open world role-playing game is exactly what people expected and more, with the ability to immerse themselves in the vast and aesthetically pleasing world of Hyrule.

Even though the sequel was announced 2019, we've yet to hear any updates from Nintendo or any other sources - until now.

In a recent interview with Spanish podcast 'A Coffee with Nintendo', voice actors Marc Navarro and Nerea Alfonso implied that the Spanish localisation for the game has been completed. As localisation usually occurs at the latter end of the game development process, several publications interpreted this as an indication that the game was near completion.

However, the podcast has since taken to Twitter to clarify that this information was inaccurate and taken out of context. You can read the full statement below:

While the short-lived rumour certainly stirred some excitement within the gaming community, it looks like we might have to wait for an official reveal before preparing our wallets.

Either way, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 is widely expected to be as much of a hit - if not more so - than its predecessor; if the first title is anything to go by, we are certainly in for a treat once it's eventually announced. FINGERS CROSSED.
