Last month, we shared some awesome gameplay footage from Zelda: Breath of the Wild. While mysteriously silent, the teaser was chock-full of beautiful imagery and scenic level design. When we first wrote about the game, Nintendo’s epic launch title wasn’t even out yet, but that didn’t stop us from raising our expectations and shelling out some cash for a preorder. Now, after holding it in our hands this past week, we can rest easy knowing that we had every right to hype this thing up. Watch the trailer for yourself, and it’ll make sense to hear that we share our love of Breath of the Wild with gamers everywhere.
Upon launch day, the new Zelda adventure moved a staggering 1.5 million units around the world. That’s a hell of a lot of copies for a video game playable on a brand spanking new console. It’s a good thing the new title came out when it did too, as Nintendo Switch seems to be lacking many gaming options during this first month of availability. That’s not an entirely bad thing however, as it really forces players to sit with Breath of the Wild, which if we’re being honest here, deserves your full undivided attention. If you’re one of the few who have yet to get a taste of Zelda on the Switch, go do yourselves a favour and pick up a copy right now. Meanwhile, if you’ve already beaten the game, follow us after the jump for some good news.
Okay, so you’ve completed Breath of the Wild, and are still itching to get back into the world of Hyrule. We know, we are too. Unfortunately for us, we’ll have to wait some time until an official sequel hits retailers. This reality makes plenty of sense too, given how much work goes into making a video game. In fact, you can see the entire development process and understand for yourselves. Nintendo has blessed us with a docuseries profiling the creation of Breath of the Wild. The experience comes in three separate parts, and you can check it out below, via YouTube.
