Ah it's such a wonderful time that I live in to have 2 Zelda titles releasing. One this year & the other in probably about 2 would be my guesstimation.

I expect BotW2 will be 2021, since the engine, world, mechanics and models already exist to build off of unlike BotW which was completely from scratch. From what the trailer showed, I think the setting will just be BotW but with the world notably changed from the earthquake that occurs at the end of the trailer.

I do wonder though how they'll start Link off though. In theory, he would be pretty strong going in due to the events of BotW, so to put him back down to three hearts and no stamina gauge would be jarring without something happening to strip him of it. If the setting doesn't move, the shrines can't return because it wouldn't make sense for all 120 shrines to suddenly change their interiors.

What I want most from BotW2 right now is more and better dungeons, and a better story. Those were the two weakest parts of BotW for me.

Not interested in Yawn of the Wild 2 at all, but it's nice knowing that we have a remake of an actually good LoZ game on the way. Hasn't been any reason to be hyped over LoZ (well, aside from the ALTTP Randomizer) since A Link Between Worlds, so it's nice to actually have a reason to care again.

To expand on this, the producer has said that BotW2 will take place in Hyrule, so I expect that it will just be the same overworld but with changes made to it so that it doesn't just feel like a glorified BotW DLC.

Also, since it's being speculated a lot around the internet, how would people feel about this game featuring co-op or the ability to play as Zelda in a more expanded role than she has had in prior games that she could be played in?

Man, too much distaste for Breath of the Wild going on in here! That game was fantastic, and I'm so excited to see it getting a sequel of sorts. Seems to be in the vein of a Majora's Mask, too, which they've said that it'll be darker in tone than. I wonder how so? In that timeline, Link was dead.

That aside, the Link's Awakening release seems cool, so I'll definitely play that when it launches soon.

Also, Cadence of Hyrule is fucking dope! I've been watching gameplay of that and it's got the dopest fucking music I've ever heard.

I'd say you like it because Breath of the Wild is more geared towards western audiences. It's open world &, all the things that everyone else has wanted since the first Zelda game. Personally; I'm more of a fan of the way Zelda was, like with Link's Awakening & not the westernization of it as of late. Meh"

I'm not too interested in Skyrim with a LoZ skin myself (though that's not fair to Skyrim, at least Skyrim actually had puzzles in it, even if they weren't very complicated). Abandoning most of what made the LoZ series interesting to make it into an empty open world game with shallow, dull combat isn't something that I'm interested in investing in.

900 Korok Seeds isn't a really good trade off for dungeons, puzzles and item variety.

I'm not well versed on the timeline and story of LoZ, but you play as Link in MM, so how is he dead yet playable? Unsure

It's tough to decide how I feel about the Korok Seeds. Having so many made it so you would be guaranteed to stumble across a good number of them while doing other stuff so you could at least increase some of your inventory space, but at the same time there was no incentive to ever find all 900. However, making less of them would make finding them all less time consuming (maybe) but then you've got to spend more time trying to find them if you want more inventory space, which is a neat thing but nothing so great that I would ever care to go out of my way to obtain it if I had to really hunt for them because the world now only has 100 of them and so they're spread out thinner and rarer to stumble across.

OoT's spider hunting thing was neat, and there wasn't a grossly huge amount of them to find, but that world was also smaller so having less didn't make them feel sparse, which is what would happen lowering the Korok Seed numbers in BotW. I'd be fine with a Korok Seed mechanic not returning and having inventory space increases tied to something else, but if it did come back then I don't know how it could be improved without creating more problems. 900 is a flawed amount to complete, regardless of the final reward, but it also works to make sure you're not struggling to at least find a decent number of them. Maybe they should give you rewards for every certain amount of them that are worth the effort, with some being unbreaking weapons but nothing more powerful than the breakable stuff so it isn't OP. Make it more powerful when you start hitting very high numbers, so that you can't just get OP gear without needing to put in a lot of work.
