Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 compared to Majora's Mask ? Nintendo responds

Even though we recently got a brand new trailer for the sequel of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, we still don't know much about the game and where it will fit in the official timeline...

This lack of information leads obviously to many speculations from the fans. One of the main ones would be that BOTW 2 is the new Majora's Mask.

The fact that BOTW 2 is the sequel of BOTW (just like Majora's Mask was with Ocarina of Time); and that both titles borrow a lot of assets from their predecessor (BOTW 2 seems to evolve in the same environment as BOTW, with similar weapons or enemies); are the two main reasons why people compare BOTW 2 so much with Majora's Mask.

To minimize rumours, Nintendo recently addressed them through an interview with IGN:

"I would say it’s an easy comparison or conclusion to jump to at this point in time, just given what’s been shown so far and given the nature of it being a direct sequel, [...] So I understand people making that conclusion, but at the same time – and I don’t want to delve too much into it – but this is its own game." - Bill Trinen, Senior Product Marketing Manager at Nintendo of America

According to Nintendo, the rumours are understandable but not totally accurate. What we have to do is to be patient... again.
