Latest Updates

Thanks to updates at Amazon Japan, we’ve gotten a slew of new images from Breath of the Wild. We already showed off some new Switch screenshots and a map, so this time around we have some screenshots from the Wii U version of the game. Some of them depict things we saw last E3, while others are newer. The game looks absolutely stunning, even on the Wii U. I can’t wait to hop into the game myself and grab a…

So in the Master and Special editions of Breath of the Wild, gamers will be getting a parchment that is double sided. One of those sides contains a map of Hyrule, though we never got a great look at it until now. Thanks to Amazon Japan, we now have a close up view of the map. What can you discern from it? Well… a lot. All the names handwritten in are visible clearly, and it looks like you can make…

Thanks to an update to Amazon Japan, we now have a fresh batch of Nintendo Switch specific Breath of the Wild screenshots. These are some of the highest quality screenshots of the game we have had yet and are at a resolution that confirms them to be Switch related. Have a gander and let us know what you think in the comments below.

Yes, you can tame wild horses in Breath of the Wild. What about Link’s faithful stead, Epona? Well, they have stayed essentially silent on that front until now. Eiji Aonuma said Epona is in the game, but wouldn’t elaborate beyond that. Is she a wild horse you must tame? Is she locked up somewhere? What sort of stats does she have? We’ll have to play the game to find out. Here is how Eiji Aonuma put it: “As for Epona,…

Watch out world, Golf is heading to a console near you on March 3rd. According to Eiji Aonuma in an interview with IGN Portugal, Breath of the Wild contains a mini-game that is essentially Golf, using the Stasis Rune ability. What gets described is essentially one aspect of the run ability which we’ve already seen, but can now understandably be applied to this new mini game. Here are the quotes as translated by google translate: “There is a new item…

Breath of the Wild is the final game being made for the Wii U. Reggie Fils-Aime didn’t outright say it was the final game, but he did say it was the only game in development for the system. That knowledge equipped, we have reached a finality. Sure, we have one more day to ponder the Wii U – March 3rd, but let’s be honest, we’ll all be thinking more about the new game and Switch that day than about the…

Depending on the games you would have played in your lives, you may or may not be familiar with the concept of alternate endings. Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal/HeartGold/SoulSilver is a prime example, as the ending of the game is different depending on what conditions you’ve met during the course of the game. You’ll see a different ending, for example, if you’ve beaten all 16 gyms and Red as opposed to just the Johto portion. In a recent interview with IGN Portugal, Aonuma confirmed that The…

We took a one week hiatus as we dealt with the incoming and ever-flowing aftermath of the Nintendo Switch event last week, but we’re back with a two hour special where Alfred and Nate (yours truly) go over our reactions to Breath of the Wild and what we have learned since the 12th, plus some overall reactions to the Nintendo Switch on the whole, ending with the reasoning we both have a Nintendo Switch pre-ordered.

Do you think Eiji Aonuma mispoke during E3 last year when he said you can go to the last boss right away after you’re off the Great Plateau? Well, here we are with the game finished and he is making the exact same claim, stating it’s probably a bad idea and you’ll probably die, though obviously probably is a bit of a strong statement, as it means you can beat him if you’re skilled enough. He went on to clarify…

Breath of the Wild offers a lot freedom in how you play. Even with your horse, you can many of them and name them whatever you like, where as in the past it was always a single horse you could sometimes name. However, that horse in the past was always known as Epona, with the ability to change that name. Just like the hero has always been known as Link, with your ability to change that name literally from the…
