Breath of the Wild will be the first Zelda game with a version in Dutch
Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has appeared in a new Nintendo video to announce a Dutch version of Breath of the Wild. All text will be localized, but the voice acting will remain in English.
This marks the first time ever that a Zelda game has been localized into Dutch. Normally these players only have access to the games in English.
Thanks to DRPS for the tip.
Zelda: Breath of the Wild, 1-2-Switch receive ESRB ratings
With just two weeks to go, Nintendo’s first Switch titles have now been rated by the ESRB. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and 1-2-Switch both popped in the database today and are listed as E10+. We don’t usually cover ESRB descriptions, but we’re making an exception for Switch’s launch. And Zelda’s rating is… certainly interesting.
So first up, Zelda:

Original (2/15): The next part of Game Informer’s month-long Zelda: Breath of the Wild coverage is now online. Another piece of the magazine’s interview with Shigeru Miyamoto and Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma is shared. For today’s snippet, the two developers talk about storytelling and what we can expect from it in Breath of the Wild. We again get to hear Aonuma tease his “trick” that he used that he had been thinking about for roughly two decades.

Aonuma says you’ll feel a lot of different emotions when playing Zelda: Breath of the Wild
Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma answered another fan question about Breath of the Wild today, as shared by Nintendo of France. This time around, he was asked if the game will be more mature than the previous entries given what we’ve seen in the trailers thus far.
Aonuma responded with the following:
“Of course, when you watch the trailer, the game looks very serious. But that’s because we used serious and spectacular scenes in the edit; it’s what holds the viewers’ attention. But as wit every other Zelda, Breath of the Wild will make you feel a lot of different emotions; and as in every Zelda, there will be serious and dramatic moments as well as more amusing parts which I hope will make you laugh. In this game, you’ll be able to both laugh and be moved.”
