"The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is an action-adventure video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch and Wii U video game consoles. It is the 19th release in the main The Legend of Zelda series. The story is set in Hyrule and follows amnesiac protagonist Link, who awakens from a 100-year slumber to a mysterious voice that guides him to defeat Calamity Ganon.
The title's gameplay and mechanics constitute a departure from the series' conventions, featuring an open-world environment, a detailed physics engine, high-definition visuals, voice acting, and the ability to play through the game's dungeons in any order."
So basically, I suppose you can say it's Zelda meets Skyrim, or Fallout. And as far as I know, this is the final Nintendo-produced game for the Wii U. Not sure how the Switch version handles, but I have seen the fps drop on certain places. Like if there's a ton of grass and such.
Anyway. First thing I'll say is it's nothing like any previous Zelda game. For example, you can jump anytime you want. The game also doesn't tell you about a lot of things either. I'm not speeding through the game, probably not as far as most other people despite maybe having several hours in. There is some stuff that you have to do first, otherwise after that, you're free to do anything. Even go right to the last boss. There is amiibo support, though for the most part, it's random ingredients. I think there's some equipment too, but not sure how random that is. You can even get a horse as well. They can only be used once every 24 hours. The Wolf Link one, however, will let Wolf Link fight at your side. If I recall, there's an optional dungeon on Twilight Princess where you can power him up. Or something like that, it's been too long since I read that. yo dawg, I heard you liked Link...
Honestly, I do find it interesting, though maybe a few things I find annoying. lol Not really sure what else to say without it being a spoiler. I'll make the next post list the current recipes I currently know.
