Arguably the most anticipated upcoming Nintendo Switch release is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2.

We still don’t know much about it and even the name of the title remains a mystery. Around the time of E3 last year, Bill Trinen mentioned how Nintendo was “holding back” on the name to avoid revealing too much.

With this in mind, veteran video game journalist Paul Gale – who runs his own website, appeared in Nintendo Power and worked with many other video game outlets over the years – has shared a new blog post titled: “Rumour: Botw sequel’s name is (was) The Legend of Zelda: Breath of Duality”.

Gale’s “intel” typically comes from friends he’s made within the games industry “over the past 12 years”. His latest post is slightly different, as it does not come from a “direct source”, but is one that he felt was still worth sharing as a rumour. Here’s the rundown:

“…the sequel to BotW and its main hook is right in the name, which establishes on the “Breath” familiarity from the 2017 hit and giving a nod to the fact that you can play as more than the aforementioned title’s Link (including various, polar themes), hence “Duality”.

“Duality between character abilities, on land and floating regions, past and present, darkness and light, etc. (The individual did note that this name was seen a considerable amount of time ago, supposedly, and could have been one of many template titles.”

“…If real, it does make sense as to why Nintendo and Mr. Eiji Aonuma have been so hush-hush on the title. If fake or not final-yet-close to what the actual name ends up being, this still makes for an interesting topic to discuss.”

As noted by Gale, what was seen by the source could have potentially been one of many template titles at an earlier point during Breath of the Wild 2’s development.

YouTuber Nintendo Prime also mentioned on his recent live chat show how he’s spoken to Gale about the source:

“If you guys are fishing for who his source is, it’s not gonna happen…I’m not gonna tell you who his source is, he can confirm in the chat – me and him [Paul Gale] had a private conversation, I’m well aware of how he got this information…me and Paul have a trust, I’m not going to break that trust just to reveal sources…all I can tell you is it’s someone who is fairly reliable.”

Here’s what Bill Trinen had to say during an interview with IGN last year when he was asked about Breath of the Wild 2’s name:

“As for why we’re holding back on the name, you’ll just have to stay tuned because, obviously, Zelda names are kind of important… Those subtitles… they start to give little bits of hints about maybe what’s going to happen.”

What do you make of all this? Any idea what Breath of the Wild 2 might be called when it’s eventually released? Leave your own thoughts and theories down below.
