My love for The Legend of Zelda series began waaaaaaay back in the day when I played the first entry in the series on the beloved NES. Ever since the franchise has held a place in my heart, so I was more than ready to take the latest game out for a spin! The Legend of Zelda is back, and it does so by introducing some considerable changes to the formula.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the 19th release in the beloved series, and the biggest game ever in this franchise. At the start of the game, Link awakens from a 100-year slumber with no memory. He listens to a female voice that wakes him up, and who sends him on a journey to save Hyrule. Calamity Ganon is set on breaking out of its prison inside of Hyrule Castle.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a big departure from the regular formula of the franchise, and it makes this the best game in the series. There is so much to do and so many ways to do it that the sky is the limit. Different players will approach puzzles in a different way, and the game won’t say “no you can’t do it like that” to you. With so much freedom, a ton of shrines to explore, many siquests to complete and lots of secrets to discover, you can spend well over 100 hours playing the latest release from Nintendo on your brand new Nintendo Switch. This is a must-buy for all Nintendo Switch owners and a game that will be on many GOTY lists.
