Furthermore, Aonuma mentions that there will be new gameplay elements. Which ones are in detail, he did not call. But a Findiger Tloz fan has taken care of a little more detail in the trailer and discovering a potentially decisive detail that indicates a new gameplay element.

What is that for a light ? Maybe it could be the light ball around Princess Zelda, the link is now serving on his travels as a Ki companion. Already in the boss fight of the first part, Princess Zelda appeared as a mysterious light ball and spoke to link, which is an indication of this ability. In a clip, the user shows how Zelda in Breath of the Wild transitions from this light ball into their awakened form.
In addition, the light ball seems to merge in any form with the master sword, as seen in the subsequent scene. So it would be possible that Princess Zelda accompanied in the second BOTW part of link on his travels to repair the master sword.

Possible connection to Skyward Sword
What else could be? Another user speculates that the light ball rather about a flame that occurred in Skyward Sword. Due to the flame, the master sword was forged, which is why it may be possible to ensure the same flame for repairing the destroyed master’s die. A compound see the commenters through the sky islands that should give it in BOTW 2.

However, if the light ball should be Princess Zelda, the question remains open whether she will be a playable character in BotW 2. It would be conceivable that Zelda only acts as a companion in light ball form and can not be controlled even.
But as in all, what has not yet been officially confirmed, we should enjoy these theories with caution. For everything else we already know of BOTW 2, there is our master sword overview.
