Spanish voice actors for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 have said their work on the game is done, perhaps indicating that the game is a significant way through its development cycle.
Reported by Gamereactor, Marc Navarro (Revali) and Nerea Alfonso (Zelda) told the hosts of the Un Café Con Nintendo podcast that they had finished their work on the still-undated sequel, before questioning whether they should have revealed that information.
As pointed out by VGC, localized voice acting is often one of the final tasks for game audio design departments. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the game as a whole is close to complete, but it may indicate that Breath of the Wild 2 is a significant way through production.
That idea’s supported by the fact that Nintendo began hiring for a new Zelda project back in 2018 – if those job listings referred to Breath of the Wild 2, it implies the game has been in production for some time.
Nintendo’s been very quiet about the sequel since its announcement at E3 2019, but we know the team has been drawing inspiration from Red Dead Redemption 2, and that producer Eiji Aonuma won’t deny that it could have a co-op mechanic, or that you could play as Zelda herself.
There’s far more we don’t know about the game – but here’s everything we’ve learned about Breath of the Wild 2 so far.
