Rain can be an inconvenience for Link while climbing in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. But for one of the game’s enemies, it’s actually deadly.

You’ll notice that a Fire Keese’s flames will go out when rain starts to pour. A few seconds later, it’ll perish right on the spot.

Here’s a quick look:

In the official Zelda: Breath of the Wild guide, two of the game’s most important developers left messages for readers. Series producer Eiji Aonuma and director Hidemaro Fujibayashi both reflected on creating the massive title.

Aonuma’s message was particularly interesting. In it, he spoke about the developing process of “creating while playing”. Aonuma also touched on not being completely satisfied with development due to “a desire to keep evolving and growing.”

As for Fujibayashi, he touched on the difficulties of trying to rethink Zelda’s conventions. He also said that the team has “on occasion observed things happen in the field that not even we, who created the game, could have imagined.”

We thought it might be interesting to share both of these messages from Aonuma and Fujibayashi. Read the full transcriptions below.

On the latest episode of Fragments of Silicon, Tantalus CEO Tom Crago stopped by for a chat. A majority of the conversation centered around The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, of which the studio was largely responsible for.

Crago went in-depth about developing Twilight Princess HD. That includes how Tantalus landed the job, Nintendo’s involvement and working with series producer Eiji Aonuma, coming up with the new Wolf Link amiibo and Cave of Shadows functionality, how long it took to come together plus the amount of people involved, and more.

Read on below for Crago’s comments about working on Zelda: Twilight Princess HD.

YouTuber nesis has come up with a bizarre, yet interesting way of messing around with a Guardian in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Believe it or not, it’s possible to ride a Guardian through the sky.

The steps themselves are pretty simple. Actually following through on the process may be a bit tricky, however. You’ll need to get a Guardian on to a raft, and then mess around with it a bit to make it move and fly up into the sky.

Shovel Knight: Official Design Works is an upcoming book from Yacht Club Games and Udon Entertainment. It’ll feature key art, character concepts, enemy designs, sprite sheets, unused ideas, and a tribute art gallery along with creator commentary and an exclusive interview.

For those interested in the cover, we now have that above via an Amazon listing. Speaking of which, the retailer is currently taking pre-orders which are at a $7 discount. Reservations are also now live on Amazon Canada and Amazon UK.

The March 2017 NPD report was highlighted by strong sales for both Switch and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Both are off to very strong starts in the United States.

Additional data regarding March sales in the U.S. are in from NPD. We’re able to see the best-selling games across Switch, Wii U, and 3DS for the month. Continue on below for the full results.

The latest episode of the Play Nintendo Show, featuring Zelda: Breath of the Wild, has gone live. Andrew and Izzy paraglide into the game’s vast world, explore Hyrule, and try out some cooking. Check out the full episode below.
