|The following is from Nintendo’s Breath of the Wild website:
Step into a world of adventure
Forget everything you know about The Legend of Zelda games. Step into a world of discovery, exploration and adventure in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, a boundary-breaking new game in the acclaimed series. Travel across fields, through forests and up mountain peaks as you discover what has become of the ruined kingdom of Hyrule in this stunning open-air adventure.
Explore the wilds of Hyrule any way you like
Climb up towers and mountain peaks in search of new destinations, then set your own path to get there and plunge into the wilderness. Along the way, you’ll battle towering enemies, hunt wild beasts and gather ingredients for the food and elixirs you’ll need to sustain you on your journey.
More than 100 Shrines of Trials to discover and explore
Shrines dot the landscape, waiting to be discovered in any order you want. Search for them, then solve the puzzles inside. Work your way through the traps and devices inside to earn special items and other rewards that will help you on your adventure.
Be prepared and properly equipped
With an entire world waiting to be explored, you’ll need a variety of outfits and gear to reach every corner. You may need to bundle up with warmer clothes or change into something better suited to the desert heat. Some clothing even has special effects that, for example, can make you faster and stealthier.
Battling enemies requires strategy
The world is filled with enemies of all shapes and sizes. Each one has its own attack method and weaponry, so you must think quickly and develop the right strategies to defeat them.
Tap into adventure with amiibo
Tap the Wolf Link amiibo to make Wolf Link appear in game. Wolf Link will attack enemies on his own and help you find items you’re searching for. A new series of The Legend of Zelda amiibo is also on the way.

The reviews are out for Breath of the Wild, and boy Nintendo must have spent a lot of money paying for all these perfect scores! /s
The first review and score for Breath of the Wild is now out, in EDGE #304. They gave the game…wait for it… … … a perfect 10! Warning: Perfect scores for The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild may result in extremely high levels of saltiness from crybabies that can’t accept Nintendo still makes…

Nintendo’s Bill Trinen made an appearance on the latest episode of IGN’s Nintendo Voice Chat, and was asked about Breath of the Wild’s DLC and the reaction to it. He had this to say: “It was tough, because we actually had a lot of debate in terms of do we announce it, how do we…

I usually don’t care about ESRB ratings and whatnot, but the description for Zelda is so great I had to post it. “This is an adventure game in which players assume the role of Link on a quest to stop a growing evil in the land of Hyrule. As players explore the open-world environment, they…
Game Informer has yet another video with Miyamoto and Aonuma, this time they talk about fan feedback with the Zelda series. As usual it’s only on their website for now.
