Voice acting is finally gracing a canon Zelda game with the next chapter in the franchise. Breath of the Wild makes use of it for some characters, but is still leaving Link as a silent protagonist. Make no mistake, not every person you meet will audibly speak works. Series producer Eiji Aonuma says voice acting will be used where he wants to make an impression. I’ve seen a lot of outcry regarding the lack of dual audio in Breath of the Wild. In…

HMK recently uploaded a video in which he speculates the presence of potential Sheikah defectors in Breath of the Wild. He noted a mysterious character present in the newest  Breath of the Wild trailer.

With this information, HMK speculates that the Sheikah could be warring in Breath of the…

A recent Breath of The Wild trailer analysis by YouTuber Gagz Gaming reveals a potential connection between several characters shown in the most recent trailer and the Hylian Royal Family. The analysis points out that in the trailer a blue scarf can be seen on the Goron character, the female Zora, and the bow-armed Bird Person.

Just like with other gigantic gaming fandoms, Zelda fans hate major spoilers for upcoming titles in their series. In actuality though, we don’t mind some of the minor ones that keep us informed. Well sadly Nintendo is not exactly in the same mindset as we are. Take for the fact that they apparently removed an Amazon UK listing for a Breath of the Wild strategy guide. Not too long ago, we reported that a Breath of the Wild strategy guide…

With the never-ending odyssey that has been The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s release and development schedule finally drawing to a close, we can now finally take a breath and start thinking about the next game in the Zelda series.

We now have what is probably one of the best comparisons to date, especially if you want to see some of the bigger improvements made between the Wii U and Switch versions of the game. This new comparison video shows that Breath of the Wild on Switch has a higher resolution, a longer draw distance, and improved textures. The difference is quite stunning, though naturally we have to consider that the Wii U footage itself is quite old. Still, this…
