With as much as they were allowed to share, GameXplain has brought us a glorious unboxing video. Sure, there’s still a bit of time before we can…

Hey, everyone. I come today to bring you another rockin’ entry in Zelda Informer’s weekly Caption Contest. After a small detour in honor of Valentine’s Day, the contest is continuing its focus on screenshots from the upcoming Breath of the Wild. The newest Zelda game is less than two weeks ago. Are you shaking with excitement yet? I know that Link’s excited, and sometimes excitement forces our hero to make strange faces.

Just as a heads up, this article contains heavy spoilers for The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. However, it is to your benefit to be familiar with the game’s story as I will not dive into every aspect of the plot and seek to summarize it. This is merely a literary analysis of the game, comparing it to a traditional writing method and established archetypes. The adventure of the hero is an old storytelling mechanic that dates back to…
