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…

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…

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…

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…

With another major news cycle behind us for Breath of the Wild, it’s time to talk about how we feel about the game now. To those who have spoken with me personally, it’s no secret that the trailer for this game at the end of Thursday’s Switch event to me is the best Zelda trailer we have had in at least a decade, if not ever. It invoked all the feelings I could possibly want for this game and then…

  Needless to say, there is a lot we could talk about with Breath of the Wild. However, today of all days is the day many, if not most, of us decided to pre-order the game for Nintendo Switch, possibly thanks to the Special Edition and Master Edition. These are versions of Breath of the Wild that come with extra goodies for an extra price. One of those versions, the Master Edition, seems to be intentionally limited – as Reggie…

Before we get in to today’s debate, I want to note that technically we did miss a day, but I’m not counting it as the skipping was intentional. Due to our lack of posts on January 8th, I really didn’t want to see back to back Daily Debates. Hopefully this was just a one off issue that won’t become a common reoccourance. Anyways, today I wanted folks to debate about music in Zelda games, specifically in regards to Breath of…

Next week is Switchmas and we are bound to get another major influx of Breath of the Wild news. As we enter what we presume to be the home stretch leading up to release, it’s fair to wonder how much information is too much before a game releases, especially Zelda games. For me personally, the more the merrier. For others, they may want as little information as possible. This may come down to the enjoyment levels and preferred way to…

The Zelda series has had many various art styles over the years. Some of these styles live on in the sprite world, while others dabble through a 2.5D top down style, and naturally the more discussed art directions taken in full console 3D Zelda games. It’s interesting considering this because if you follow sales trends, it’s very clear which art direction is most popular, but does that mean it’s everyone’s preferred style. Right now, my favorite is the yet to…

It seems so simple, but how many times have we actually sat back and thought about it? Maybe it’s strictly design. Maybe it’s because of the story… or simply how bad-ass he looks in certain attire. Heck, it could just be a game mechanic that turns you on to him. There are many iterations of Link throughout the history of the Zelda series. Which of those Link’s is your favorite? This is a tough choice for me. Based purely on…
