Well, with HWAOC being announced, I'm not getting KHMOM til probably December. I didn't know Nintendo was hiding a pocket money-nuke! holy balls
I mean, they had to have something for holidays. A HW sequel was always the sort of obvious mid-budget rainy day game they could bust out at any time. They may have been sitting on it for longer than we know.

It is surprising (& a bit disappointing) that it's only BOTW-era.
I'm not disappointed, but I'm asking myself just how long of a stretch can the story be? I presume Each Champion will have its adequate amount of time in the spotlight, meaning this game will focus more on the developement of each and every character (Link, Zelda, Mipha, Daruk, Rufo guy and Urbosa).

There's so many characters that didn't make it into HW1 that I was hoping for: Saria, Malon, Nabooru, Groose, Twinrova, Vaati, Demise, Linebeck, Majora's Wrath.
Either leave them for Hyrule Warriors 2 or expect them next year because it's Zelda's 35th anniversary. I'm sure this game will have DLC.

would we even get Sidon as playable?
Technically, Sidon is a child in this timeline, but I presume they can make him playable in a non canon way via, again DLC.

By the way, guys: remember this was just an introduction trailer, we'll get more info on TGS and the game releases in about two months. We don't know everything yet.

This seems to be their big Holiday video game, meaning that perhaps next

I'm suspecting there'll be foreshadowing/set-up for BotW2 that'll make up a significant chunk of the story. Additionally:

The Champions seem to have gotten themselves their very own pet baby guardian. It'll probably be playable & die its own horrible death. Or resurface alive & well in BotW2.

Say what now?

True, but I presume the foreshadowing will be veeeeeeery minimal.

I presume it could be this game's iteration of Hyrule Warriors Deluxe's Fairy mechanic.

Or resurface alive & well in BotW2.
Breath of the Wild had that mechanic where you could scan the Wolf!Link amiibo and use it as a companion. Perhaps BOTW2 could have a permanent companion?

Say what now?
lol I meant that BOTW2 could be 2021's Holiday game.

Wait so does the fact that this is a prequel mean that this is the first time Zelda is actually canonically playable?
Well, Hyrule Warriors Zelda is still a Zelda, so.

This makes me excited at the possibility of a Fire Emblem Warriors that takes place during the timeskip of Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
"FIRE EMBLEM Warriors", yuck

The story elements intrigue me, but the frame rate drops are so bad. Still a major problem in these games

Well they found a way to get "Paya" in the game.

Wait, I thought Paya was actually how Purah was supposed to look a hundred years ago.

Edit:

Per Siliconera, this isn't Paya, but rather, Impa at a younger age:


Makes sense that they'd base a younger Impa on her granddaughter.

I'm surprised there's been no further posts in this thread since Age of Calamity released.

Skyward Sword HD was announced for July. While a bit underwhelming feeling for the Zelda 35th anniversary compared to Mario's, I'm still glad SS is finally going to be in HD like its brethren. And with the fact they are letting it be playable with both motion controls AND button mapping (with the right stick guiding sword swings, called it!), I'm hoping that it lets the game get more recognition and love from those who shunned it before. It's actually one of my favorites plot, character, and dungeon/boss-wise.

Heck, I'm expecting some quality of life changes as well, like what Wind Waker and Twilight Princess got. They could fix the item pickup description from playing every time. They could give an option for Fi to be less intrusive. Maybe even add new bonus content like TP got with that extra dungeon. Who knows.

Am I miffed that Zelda didn't get a Collection like Mario got, while Mario is still getting 35th anniversary stuff a year later? A bit. Ocarina at least needed to be made playable somehow. And I am hungrily waiting for any Breath of the Wild 2 news. But it is what it is. Maybe there'll be more Zelda love later in the year?

This is gonna sound salty, but you can't compare their anniversaries because Nintendo did not achknowledge Zelda's anniversary. :>

Me and a friend have a theory:
Nintendo is gonna re-release Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess HD separately, and not in a bundle, and they're going to sell Joycons themed after them the same way they're doing with Skyward Sword HD and its themed Joycons. So:

• SSHD and SS themed Joycons
• WWHD and WW themed Joycons
• TPHD and TP themed Joycons

P.S. I hope those Joycons don't drift

Am I miffed that Zelda didn't get a Collection like Mario got, while Mario is still getting 35th anniversary stuff a year later?
It technically hasn't been a year since they started celebrating Mario's anniversary per se. It could be also because they're stretching the anniversary due to them recently opening Super Nintendo Land.

And let's be honest: Mario is Nintendo's Mickey.

Maybe there'll be more Zelda love later in the year?
I HOPE SO
