We all remember how painful tracking down amiibo were when they first came out back in 2014. It took me over a year to find a Ness figure, and I looked pretty much every time I walked by EB Games. Fast forward to the present date, and while securing the new Breath of the Wild amiibo hasn’t quite been as much of a challenge, its still been a challenge nonetheless. However, to all of our friends in Europe: if you…

IGN got their hands on one of those new First 4 Figures for Breath of the Wild depicting Archer Link standing 10 inches tall and made out of PVC. That bad boy looks absolutely stunning in their unboxing video and is available to purchase over at Best Buy. However, what is more interesting than the actual unboxing itself is that the included pamphlet unveils two yet to be announced Zelda figures for Breath of the Wild, including a Rider Link…

Just like with other gigantic gaming fandoms, Zelda fans hate major spoilers for upcoming titles in their series. In actuality though, we don’t mind some of the minor ones that keep us informed. Well sadly Nintendo is not exactly in the same mindset as we are. Take for the fact that they apparently removed an Amazon UK listing for a Breath of the Wild strategy guide. Not too long ago, we reported that a Breath of the Wild strategy guide…

No matter what else comes out in March, it will be known as Breath of the Wild month. No matter where you go and what you do online, there’s no escaping the newest Zelda title. First 4 Figures is aware of that and are releasing a brand new Zelda figurine on March 20th that will surely be gone as soon as it’s available. And now pre-orders for this figurine are starting to happen. This 10-inch Breath of the Wild Link…

Up until now, you’ve only been able to get the Wolf Link amiibo by purchasing the Twilight Princess HD Bundle… which isn’t hard to get, but only adds extra costs to anyone who prefers to own copies of Twilight Princess HD digitally. Also, collectors are forced to spend an awful lot just to get the amiibo. However, right now you can get the amiibo as a standalone figure over at GameStop for $15.99. Will you be picking one up?

It seems everything Breath of the Wild these days but the game itself is completely sold out everywhere, but the good news is that you still have a chance to nab all the amiibo for the game now that GameStop and Best Buy have them both up for pre-order online. Here’s a list of amiibo with Links to pre-order at either outlet: Link (Rider) – GameStop, Best Buy Link (Archer) – GameStop, Best Buy Zelda – GameStop, Best Buy Bokoblin…

It’s a common misnomer these days that Breath of the Wild gets all of its inspiration from other open world games like Skyrim. I have seen laundry list after laundry list of people saying this is what Breath of the Wild does that Skyrim also did. It’s an almost understandable point, because Skyrim is an open world fantasy style RPG that is extremely popular despite releasing 5 years ago. It is what many consider to be the gold standard, though…

So we reported last week that Breath of the Wild would support dual audio, as in listening to Japanese voice actors while seeing English text. This was according to several reports coming from Nintendo reps on the Switch event floors. Serious producer Eiji Aonuma was asked point blank about this feature by IGN Portugal, where the entire idea was shot down instantly: “In the case of the Nintendo Switch, if you change the language of the system, you can change…

The unfortunate thing about trying to compare screenshots across versions is that were dealing with a dynamic day and night system, meaning having screenshots that are during the exact same parts of each day is difficult right now, especially with the game not out in the wild. That being said, we have a collection of comparisons for you to dissect and see if you can spot the differences. I can certainly see a few things, but can you? Which version…

The collectors guide for Breath of the Wild is up for pre-order on Amazon UK, but more important than the fact our UK fans can nab a copy is the extra details included to describe the product – stuff that is available on the back of the guide. It goes without saying that there are content spoilers ahead, though no story details. COLLECTOR’S EDITION BONUS: Premium hardcover, large-size map poster and dedicated 16-page retrospective celebrating thirty years of Zelda games….
