讓我們在這裡非常清楚： 王國之淚 (托克) 是一個 直接的 續集 荒野之息 在某種程度上沒有 塞爾達 遊戲自 1987 年以來一直是直接續集 塞爾達 2：林克的冒險. 是的，當然， 馬修拉的面具 隨後從 時之笛， 和 幻影沙漏 撿起後 風杖， 但 托克 是別的東西。 這是一款使用完成後剩餘的部分公開創建的遊戲 BotW， 那 似乎 建立在 同一張底圖，開始作為前作的 DLC 開發。 這是，毫無疑問，無論多麼出色，還有更多 荒野之息. 這就是為什麼這會擾亂我們的大腦。
幾個星期過去了，讓標題沉入其中……它沒有。 我敢打賭它也不適合你。 我打賭你的大腦會為你提供“BotW2“在它開始努力記住它是否是之前”眼淚“ 要不就 “眼淚，”然後迷路了，想知道是否可能是“眼淚”，就像撕裂一樣……然後，是的，我們都同意不打擾。
來吧，它至少應該是 塞爾達傳說：曠野之息 – 王國之淚. 當然，他們可能不得不把它放在一個更大的盒子裡才能把它全部放在封面上，但至少它會有點道理。 而且日本並不反對長標題。 問好， 勇者鬥惡龍：蒙面女王與鏡之塔. 或者，你知道， 白公主二號～Yappari Itto ni Ittemo Soujyanakutemo OK-na Gotsugou Shugi Gakuen Renai Adventure.
And look, we at Kotaku know we’re not alone in this.
Heck, far more people have discovered Kotaku’s coverage of the sequel by searching Google for “BOTW” than anything mentioning tears or kingdoms. People are going to be so slow to turn on this!
It also certainly doesn’t help that when my eyes read “TOTK” the first thing I think of is “TikTok,” and good lord I don’t need that term being unwillingly stamped on my brain any more often than YouTube ads on my phone already do.
Of course, this is distracting us from more important matters, like how we should be organizing international protests to ensure Nintendo doesn’t bloody let weapons break after you tap them against a leaf this time around. Can you imagine? Can you imagine if they didn’t listen to the entire world population’s unanimous agreement that this was a terrible mechanic and the worst aspect of BotW? Yes. Of course you can. It’s Nintendo. I assume they’ll make them break more often, but this time each break permanently reduces your stamina wheel.
This also seems a good time to declare my absolute conviction that BotW2 will be released to overlap the end of the Switch era and the launch of the Switch: Pro of the XL-dom (because they clearly won’t call that a “Switch 2” will they?). As we all know, something happening twice previously is proof of a pattern as eternal as Link fighting Ganon in every era, so just as Twilight Princess overlapped the GameCube to the Wii, and BotW stood straddled with a leg in Wii U and Switch, there’s no doubt in my mind this will happen again. But also, when it doesn’t, no one will remember I predicted it with such certainty in an article about something else.
In the meantime, let’s not fool ourselves. It’s BotW2 in our hearts, and it always will be. I fear for those poor people in Nintendo’s marketing department, crying their kingdom tears at our folly.
