We’re just over a week away from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and what better way to wait for Zelda than to play more Zelda?! Right now, you can redeem your My Nintendo points to earn digital copies of several classic Zelda adventures on both the Wii U and the 3DS. Various amounts of coins will net you 30% off several titles, and as an extra bonus, Nintendo put up some orchestral covers from the Symphony of…

With The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild just around the corner, one can begin to wonder just how open and distinct the supposed open world really is. For a trend many people see as tired in today’s landscape, the move from a very linear and enclosed world, as seen in Skyward Sword, to a modern, real open world is a large one for the series to take. Over the years, many games have been at the forefront of revolutionizing the…

The first official Nintendo Switch unboxing is finally here. Hosted by two of our favorite Nintendo Treehouse hosts, Kit and Krysta, we get a small glimpse into what is awaiting many of us in just one short week. We get a very humorous and entertaining discussion during the unboxing, while also staying very informative and answering questions most people have about Nintendo’s new console. So, if you’re curious on what all will come packaged in with your Nintendo Switch, look no…

Howdy, Zelda fans. I hope you’re ready for yet another ZI Photoshop Contest. The wait for Breath of the Wild is nearly over, and this fact is none more evident given Nintendo’s willingness to drop screenshot after screenshot of the new game. One of the most recent images that caught my eye featured a new dragon enemy that Link may encounter flying over Hyrule. This screenshot called to mind the many dragons that we’ve seen in the Zelda series over…

With only 6 days until Breath of the Wild releases, the reviews are already pouring in. The first review of the game by Edge Magazine released today, rating Breath of the Wild at a solid 10/10, praising the sense of adventure, the exploration, the story (which, according to them, is 20 hours worth of content), and finally the combat. They summarized their review as such: “The result, for all the longevity of its series and the familiarity of the open world…

As always, things can’t actually go too perfect. This week, we had video outages, computer crashes, and the like. However, it all worked out in the end… kind of! Aside from that, we hit on a few topics this week. For a majority of the podcast, we discussed Breath of the Wild, as you probably guessed. Of course, we also hit on a few tangents, but that is to be expected! Despite the minor setbacks, we had a pretty long…

Warning: These may contain SPOILERS. Zelda Informer is not liable if you yell at us for spoilers. You have been warned! With the Nintendo Switch and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild a little over a week away, Nintendo is keeping the hype up with a recent batch of 26 screenshots, all uploaded in beautiful 1080p. However, capturing 1080p screenshots isn’t possible for players as the maximum resolution is 1600 x 900. They could be upscaled from their original resolution,…

Nintendo Everything recently uploaded two video showcasing how you set up the Switch for the first time, as well as a look through the System Settings. When setting up the Switch, all the usual questions are asked, such as what time zone you’re in and what region you live in (though I will note that the system was confirmed a long while ago to not be region-locked like previous consoles). However, when you come across your profile creation, you’re allowed…

For those interested in how Breath of the Wild will run in handheld mode, GameXplain has you covered. The channel has just uploaded a comparison, and has noted that during docked play, there is some clipping. This seems to be missing in the handheld mode, however. They run each mode individually, then side by side so players can get a more accurate representation. GameXplain also notes that during docked play, Breath of the Wild runs at 900p, while handheld play runs at 720p. I’ve never…

Warning: Spoilers! The embargo for Breath of the Wild videos has been lifted, and media outlets are allowed to upload around 15 minutes worth of footage. Impressions are also being thrown in to some videos, giving us pre-review of sorts. Above is a giant playlist full of Breath of the Wild footage, all uploaded in the last 24 hours. We get to see some Korok puzzles, new items, unfamiliar areas, the “blood moon,” dying Link’s clothes, some NPCs, and more. It’s safe to…
