RUMOR - Spanish voice actors for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 say their work is done (UPDATE)
Nintendo has hardly made a peep about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 since they revealed it, and fans are extremely eager to find out new details. While Nintendo remains quiet, it seems some people involved with the project may have let loose with a juicy tidbit.
The Spanish podcast "A Coffee With Nintendo" recently interviewed Marc Navarro and Nerea Alfonso, the voice actors for Revali and Zelda respectively. During the podcast, it seems that the two make mention of their work on the Spanish dub for the sequel being done. That's quickly followed up with a little clarification, with the duo saying they're not actually sure if they're allowed to share that information.
If that tidbit is indeed true, then Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 could be much further along than expected. Let's hope Nintendo comes out and shares an update that gives us firm details on when to expect the game's release.
UPDATE - Risu64 on Twitter listened to the podcast snippets to give things a little more context. Risu says the duo almost slip on mentioning a story detail about the second game, but then quickly backpedal by saying they're not sure if they worked on the second game or not. After that, we hear one voice actor say, "There's a lot of weird stuff surrounding Zelda in the first game, and also in the second game, which we haven't worked on [laughs]." That second statement makes it very clear that they've at least done some work for the sequel, as you couldn't say there is 'weird stuff' surrounding the second game unless you had some knowledge of it!
Furthermore, Twitter user ReyVGM says the duo stated that there's "a lot of paranoia surrounding the 1st and 2nd Zelda," which the two say they haven't worked on the second one, but in a tongue-in-cheek way. The paranoia the two were referencing pertains to contracts and NDAs.
UPDATE 2 - The team behind the podcast have released a statement on the speculation and discussion that has surfaced around the interview. Their team claims some of the discussion has been taken out of context. You can read their full statement below.
