My Thoughts on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Hello WordPress! Today I’m going to share with you how I feel about the new Zelda game, so without further adieu, let’s get right into it.

When I first saw the initial trailer, I was in awe by how gorgeous the game looked and by how alive the world seemed to feel. The trailer was beyond fantastic. Good job Nintendo!

Then, I watched the entire Nintendo Treehouse Live stream, and I soon became beyond excited for the next generation of Zelda. In Breath of the Wild, you traverse a massive world, collecting items and completing dungeons. With the materials you manage to collect, you are able to cook food, and presumably craft weapons and armor. The difficulty didn’t seem high at first, but upon closer inspection, the game could sport a sort of Xenoblade Chronicles X style of gameplay in the sense of you being in a giant world with super powerful creatures right from the start. You will have to advance a far bit into the game so you can go back and take down the more powerful enemies you skipped by on your first run. Defeating enemies could become rewarding if more powerful enemies give you more rare items when defeated. The open world is great, and the new resource management style of play seems to mesh well with the Zelda franchize. All in all, I am officially hyped!
