He said that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, is coming up next year and might arrive with a new Switch Pro model. And to increase the hype around the sequel, Nintendo may announce a remaster of the original, with improved graphics, lighting, and some added features for a higher price.

Per Zack, it might end up being priced around $70 or close to it, since Nintendo won’t leave such an opportunity to gain more profit.

This is not something fully certain, albeit, the Japanese giant might opt for such a step going forward. Because somehow they know that many players will still buy a remastered Breath of the Wild despite the fact that the original is only five years old.

According to Zack, this is not a great approach whatsoever. Because ultimately it will indicate that there’s a lack of creativity to develop a new, original IP. Which is actually the case with many publishers these days. It will be intriguing to see if Nintendo will do a Breath of the Wild remaster or not.
