The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild: Expanded Edition guide revealed
When Zelda: Breath of the Wild originally launched last year, Nintendo teamed up with Piggyback for an official guide. The two sides are now working together on a new version.
Listings on retailer sites reveal The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild: Expanded Edition guide. The 512-page hardcover book covers everything in the main game plus the two DLC packs. A new concept art gallery is also included.
You can find a full overview of the guide below. Pre-orders are open on both Amazon and Amazon Canada. Based on the retailer’s information, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild: Expanded Edition guide launches on February 13.
Zelda: Breath of the Wild director still trying to find his trademark on the series
Zelda: Breath of the Wild producer Hidemaro Fujibayashi has actually been working on the franchise for quite awhile. He directed a few different entries, including Oracle of Ages/Seasons, Skyward Sword, and more.
Although Fujibayashi has greatly contributed to Zelda, he’s not quite sure what his lasting mark on the series will be. In his view, he’s still figuring that out.
Nintendo on researching games like Skyrim while making Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Zelda: Breath of the Wild wasn’t the only open-world game on Switch last year. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim also just so happened to launch on the system a few months ago.
When creating Breath of the Wild, Skyrim was one game Nintendo looked at to see what it would be like to make an open-world title. However, that doesn’t mean the developers wanted to take specific elements from that game. Instead it was practically used as research.
New photos from The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild: Master Works
In Japan, a brand new art book for Zelda: Breath of the Wild recently debuted. It’s packed full of concept art across more than 300 pages. Below, you’ll find new images from the book.
We’ll likely be getting the Zelda: Breath of the Wild art book eventually, but since we’re still waiting on the Zelda Encyclopedia (which finally arrives in April), it could be quite awhile before it heads west. For now, Play-Asia has the Japanese version in stock here.
Nintendo feels that Breath of the Wild’s freedom needs to be maintained in future Zelda games
Zelda: Breath of the Wild has no set way of getting through the game. Thanks to its freedom, players can tackle it in any way they see fit. Zelda’s freedom has allowed players to come up with all sorts of interesting ways of solving puzzles. In some cases, they’ve even found ways of skipping large sections of Shrines entirely.
Producer Hidemaro Fujibayashi told IGN in a new interview that this was “all according to plan.” Nintendo wanted players to be able to have “multiple answers, multiple ways, multiple ways of doing anything.”
Zelda: Breath of the Wild devs borrowed assets from Mario Kart 8 while working on the Master Cycle Zero
No one could have expected Nintendo to add a motorcycle in Zelda: Breath of the Wild. But in The Chammpions’ Ballad, Nintendo did just that. The reward at the end of the DLC is none other than the Master Cycle Zero.
In an interview with IGN, Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma discussed the development of the new motorcycle. You might be interested to know that Nintendo imported assets from Mario Kart 8 as a “test drive” of sorts.
Zelda: Breath of the Wild director comments on the reward for finding all Korok seeds
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has a massive amount of Korok seeds to collect. Attempting to do so requires a great deal of time, as several hundred are scattered across Hyrule.
There will be a reward waiting for you once you’ve found every last Korok Seed. The thing is, it’s not exactly helpful or valuable – it’s more comical in nature.

Nintendo on its approach to the Zelda timeline, understands fans’ appreciation for it
The Zelda timeline has always been something of great interest for fans of the series. On the other hand, Nintendo tends to be a bit timid when talking about it. Although the series has been around since the late 80’s, it wasn’t until just a few years ago that Nintendo published an official timeline in Hyrule Historia.
With the arrival of the latest Zelda game in March, fans are curious as to where Breath of the Wild officially stands. You won’t get much of a concrete answer out of Nintendo concerning timeline placement, but its developers are aware of interest from fans.
