We got our first look at Breath of the Wild being played on Nintendo Switch from the Tonight show the other day. While we didn't get any direct feed footage, Zelda fans don't need direct feed to make analyses an observations. For instance, a fan by the name of pixelpushing on Imgur pointed out the Switch version seems to have a massive draw distance increase compared to Wii U. Taking a look at the two screenshots above, you'll notice the Switch image on the right shows much more detail in the horizon than the Wii U version. This is impressive...

If you'd like to get your hands on some officially-licensed Breath of the Wild merchandise, you may want to consider these gold pocket watches. Manufactured by Taito, each watch measures 2.95" or 7.5cm in diameter. One variant includes a blue face with Link artwork, while one sports a black and gold face with a more traditional Zelda design. A chain is attached to each watch, although it is not pictured above...

If you happen to look for a nice additionfor your key ring while keeping up the hype towards Breath of the Wild, you are in luck, as Bandai has released a set of keychains in Japan which is available for pre-order at Shop NCSX. The set, which only costs $19.90 USD, includes 4 keychains and a prop of the Master Sword. The keychains include a "Z" emblem, a chibi Link with and without the hood, and a silhouette of Link drawing...

Straight from the Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, we're getting our first look at Breath of the Wild gameplay running on the Nintendo Switch in real time. The Switch reveal footage was added after filming as is customary for those kinds of productions, so it's impossible to know if it was Wii U or Switch gameplay. That doesn't matter now, as Fallon played Breath of the Wild using a Nintendo Switch. He doesn't play the game for very long, but it's enough. It should be noted that Nintendo of America's president Reggie Fils-Aimé is there as well...

It's a well known fact these days that before Twilight Princess became a thing, The Wind Waker 2 was very much in the works (Eiji Aonuma technically announced the game at a private GDC panel in 2004). We also know the current president of Nintendo (who was the President of Nintendo of America at the time) had told Eiji Aonuma and his team about the desires of the western audience for the future direction of Zelda, and how The Wind Waker 2 would not be received well. We assumed, naturally, that's where the story ended. Taking head to that advice, Twilight Princess was born...

With the release of a new trailer for Breath of the Wild and the game possibly coming in March, the Zelda community has been in an uproar lately. From different theories on when the game takes place, to wondering who the mysterious woman is in the trailer. Another thing to look forward to is the release from the new Zelda amiibo, honoring the anniversary of the beloved series. If you didn't get the chance to pre-order these figures, they are available for buying on Amazon...

For the past year now, the Zelda community has been in full celebration for the 30th anniversary of the series. Now, with the recent showing of the Game Awards 2016, everyone is much more anxiously awaiting the arrival of Breath of the Wild. Another thing to look forward to in 2017 is a new amiibo addition that will also be compatible with the new Zelda game. This new amiibo will be the Guardian, an enemy monster in Breath of the Wild... 

The four new Zelda 30th Anniversary amiibo are now available and Nintendo has announced just how they'll work in the upcoming Zelda title, Breath of the Wild. There is a random number of certain items received depending on which amiibo is scanned. But wait, there's more! There's even a chance of receiving a chest filled with a rare item, if you're lucky that is...

Pokémon Sun and Moon have had record breaking sales this past week as the newest addition to the Pokémon franchise. Both games dominate the 3DS eShop charts, as the first and second most downloaded software. But our beloved Zelda games are not absent from the sales list. In fact, there are quite a few notable titles to be found. First up, we have the very first Legend of Zelda taking the third spot, right behind Sun and Moon. Right below that at number four sits Zelda: Link's Awakening DX...

In the second trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild that was shown at The Game Awards 2016, Nintendo Treehouse staff were shown doing a trial shrine challenge, and their stamina bar was shown to be a bit different then what we've seen before...
