The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This was a game that has held the attention and anticipation of many Legend of Zelda fans. When first announced in 2014, at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, it was expected to challenge many of the well-known mechanics and gameplay features of recent games.
While other games in the Zelda franchise had to be played with all the dungeons completed in a specific order, the newly announced game was returning back to its roots with the open adventure feel of their very first game, The Legend of Zelda.
Think the Skyrim games meets Legend of Zelda. They wanted an open-world feel and the adventure of the game completely in the hands of the player. This game was expected to come out in the late summer of 2015.
However, in March of 2015, it was announced that the game would be postponed until 2016. It was said that the development of the game shouldn’t be rushed and the developers wanted to make the game to its fullest potential. Thus the makers delayed the game a year to make the game a better experience for all players.
This caused much grief for the Nintendo fans following the development of the game. But they all agreed that the game deserved to be fully developed.
In April of 2016, the creators announced that the game’s release would be postponed again due to problems with the physics engine in the game. It was also postponed due to the release of the new gaming console, the Nintendo Switch.
It was announced that the game would be released for both the switch and the Wii U. This was also the time that the game’s official title was released. That title, as we all know, is The Breath of the Wild.
The game is officially being released on March third of 2017. make sure to set your preorder and be ready at your local gaming store to pick yourself up a copy of this new game!
