A couple of days ago, a listing for Piggyback’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild guide appeared on Amazon UK – not really a remarkable occurrence by itself, if not for the fact that the description of the guide revealed quite a bit about the game, including the total number of shrines. It seems like Nintendo caught wind of this, as the listing for the guide has now disappeared from Amazon UK, resulting in a 404 error. A search turns up nothing either.

Strategy guides accidentally revealing details from a game is nothing new, though most of the time the revealing text is just edited or deleted. It’s definitely unusual for the entire listing to be (temporarily) deleted. It remains to be seen how Amazon UK will handle pre-orders for the guide while it was still available.

Zelda PodSmashers has put together another video comparison for Zelda: Breath of the Wild based on the game’s latest trailer. Switch footage from that video is put up against clips from Wii U. Watch it in full below.

Thanks to Stephan for the tip.

Epona, Link’s trusty horse who has appeared in various Zelda games, will be returning in Breath of the Wild. Producer Eiji Aonuma shared the news with IGN Portugal. However, he wasn’t willing to reveal specific details about Epona’s appearance, including where to find her.

Aside from Epona, various horses can be found throughout the world in Breath of the Wild. Horses you encounter will need to be tamed. Each one also has unique stats, including strength, speed, stamina, temperament, and bond. Horses can be named as well.
