Spoilerific Zelda: Breath of the Wild guide seemingly pulled from Amazon
Posted on 53 minutes ago by Matt(@OnePunchMaz) in News, Switch, Wii U | 3 Comments | 0 Likes
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.

Dark Horse will soon be coming out with a special Link figurine that was created based on his appearance in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It’s 11 inches high, and features a sculpted base.
The figurine won’t be ready for Breath of the Wild’s launch, though it won’t be too long before it’s out. Best Buy, which is taking pre-orders, has it down for March 20.

Aonuma says Zelda: Breath of the Wild doesn’t have an option for dual audio
A few days ago, we heard that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild might feature dual audio based on a comment from a Nintendo representative. Sadly though, producer Eiji Aonuma has confirmed himself that you won’t be able to easily change languages in the game. There is no option to simply turn on the Japanese voice acting rather than the English voices.
Aonuma told IGN Portugal:
“In the case of the Nintendo Switch, if you change the language of the system, you can change the game to Japanese, but that will change everything to Japanese. Unfortunately, it is not possible to play with English text, for example, and Japanese voices.”
