The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, arguably one of the most anticipated games of 2017, is just around the corner. I don’t know about you guys, but I haven’t been this hyped for an upcoming game in a VERY long time. The Legend of Zelda has be an extremely successful title from Nintendo since the first installation of the series with the NES. This game will be no different. In fact, I’m fairly confident that Breath of the Wild will be their most successful LOZ title to date.
The fact that this game will be on two separate consoles, the Nintendo Switch and Wii-U, alone makes it a worthy contender. Not only that, but it’s also taking a fresh stance on the series. There hasn’t been a single 3D LOZ game that has been open world, at least to this size. Wind Waker, the Legend of Zelda’s Gamecube title and later HD remastered Wii-U title, was also open world but to a much smaller scale. It is nowhere near as huge.
Another completely new aspect of the game is voice acting. Never before have we ever had proper voice acting for a Legend of Zelda title. The immersion will be out of this world, especially for a Zelda Game. With these promising aspects, I can’t wait to see what Nintendo has whipped up for us this time with our hero Link.
