Whenever Nintendo releases a Zelda game for their consoles, it’s a big deal because of how big the Zelda franchise is. The good news is that if you thoroughly enjoyed The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you’ll be very pleased to learn that Nintendo has confirmed that a sequel to the game is in the works.
Details about the game are pretty scarce at this point in time. Nintendo has only launched a teaser trailer that confirms that the game is in the works, but they did not provide any other information. We expect that more details will be revealed later on in time, but it’s good to know that a sequel is in development.
Last month to everyone’s surprise, Nintendo announced a new Labo kit that basically introduced virtual reality (VR) features to the Switch. Given that the last time Nintendo attempted anything VR was with the Virtual Boy, it did come out of the blue. For those who need more reason to pick up the Labo kit, Nintendo has announced some updates for their existing games.
If you own The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and/or Super Mario Odyssey, Nintendo has announced that they will be updating both games where they will now support VR on the Labo kit. With Super Mario Odyssey, the update is expected to add three new mini-missions where users will be able to collect musical notes and coins, while Breath of the Wild will give users the ability to active the Toy-Con VR Goggles.
A record more than 200 people were injured this fiscal year starting last April while interacting with deer in a park in the ancient capital of Nara, western Japan.
Nara Park is a popular tourist destination in which visitors can feed and take pictures with deer that roam freely through the area. The animals are protected as designated national treasures.
It’s safe to say the The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the more successful and popular video games in recent years. The game has not only become the best-selling Zelda title of all time, over in Japan, it appears to have also become the best-selling 3D Zelda game, surpassing the Ocarina of Time.
It's easy to see why The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the best games around. It builds on the Zelda franchise and also introduces an open world concept to the game, something that it seemed to lack previously. It also introduced new graphics and new gameplay features, such as the ability to ride a bike.
For those who have yet to unlock the Master Cycle in the game, not to worry because you'll now get a chance to ride it in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Yup, you read that right, it seems that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe players can now look forward to riding the Master Cycle in the game as it has recently been released as a new and free update.
Now that both the DLCs for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild have been released, we suppose it feels like there's really not much left to do in the game. Sure, some gamers could go back and try to complete every little quest and puzzle that they might have skipped along the way, but there is some good news for players in China and Korea.
In the latest update to the game, Nintendo has added support for Chinese (traditional) and Chinese (simplified) and Korean. What this means is that instead of the text being in English, those who speak/read Chinese or Korean now have the option of playing the game in their native language.
Recently Nintendo had bragged that the Switch is the fastest-selling console ever in the US, and now it looks like more stats of the console have been released, this time telling us what are the most played titles on the console so far. Unsurprisingly it looks like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has managed to take the top spot.
Given that the game has received near-perfect reviews and won gaming awards, along with the fact that it was one of the console's launch titles, it doesn't really come as a surprise to see it at the top of the list. Coming in second place is Super Mario Odyssey, which once again isn't too surprising considering the long and storied reputation of the Mario franchise.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of 2017's best games and with it, we saw Nintendo do things to the Zelda franchise which they have never done before, such as introducing DLCs. The game's second DLC, Champion's Ballad, was released not too long ago and for those wondering about the future of the franchise, wonder no more.
In a recent interview with Famitsu (via Japanese Nintendo; via Nintendo Life), Zelda's producer Eiji Aonuma confirmed that with the release of the second DLC, the game is now "complete" and it marks the end of Breath of the Wild. This means that gamers probably shouldn't expect anymore DLCs or new content for the game in general.
