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…

Greetings, Zelda fans! I’m back to kick off yet another entry in ZI’s weekly Caption Contest. With the road to Breath of the Wild at its final stretch, Nintendo has graced me with plenty of screenshots to get us all the way to release. Last week highlighted the drama we’re due to see in the upcoming game, and this week will focus on one of the hopefully many boss characters.

Hello, everyone! I know the Photoshop Contest has remained silent the past few weeks, but it’s now back and ready to go. The home stretch to Breath of the Wild‘s release is finally upon us. We just need to grit our teeth and clench our fists for another month and a half. And come March 3rd, we’ll have our hands on that sweet, sweet Zelda adventure we’ve been waiting for. I bet some of you are so firmly planted on…

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…

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.

This is a conversation that has long been in the making here at Zelda Informer. Breath of the Wild is releasing on March 3rd, 2017, simultaneously on both the Nintendo Switch and Wii U. We know the game at one point back in 2014 had some Wii U gamepad exclusive features that are no longer present in the game. We also know that Eiji Aonuma feels there are aspects of the Nintendo Switch they weren’t able to use this time…

It took us a handful of days, but we’ve finally completed our analysis of the Breath of the Wild trailer from the Nintendo Switch Event last week. This is the longest, fullest trailer yet so buckle up as it takes us just north of 20 minutes to go through it all. We did probably miss a few things – after all there is so much here that could be missed, and some of the analysis was done before new information…

No folks, we don’t know literally everything that happened to setup Breath of the Wild. For that, you’ll need to play the game and unlock all the memories. However, what we do know is the basic setup, with some additional information thanks to a new translation. As always, this does dabble into spoiler territory, but if you’ve made it this far you already know what you’re getting into. Here is the basic rundown: “Hylians pass stories of a destined time…

Happy Monday, everyone. I come to you today with another Zelda Informer Caption Contest. Well, a lot went down in the week between contests. The site made the jump to WordPress, a new Nintendo Direct told us all we needed to know about the Switch, and… oh, we were on the receiving end of one of the biggest waves of Breath of the Wild news we’ve ever seen. We got a release date, gameplay, trailers, and a heaping helping of…

There are still some key aspects about the Nintendo Switch we don’t know about. We have a price point and release date now with a slate of games, but we don’t have any idea of the systems power to really value everything out. We don’t know what if any third parties are bringing to the table beyond what is publicly announced, and we obviously have no idea if HD rumble and haptic feedback on the screen are really going to…
