The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild maintained strong positioning on the UK charts. As mentioned yesterday, it was the sixth best-selling individual game for the week of March 25, and the tenth best-seller on the all formats chart.

According to GamesIndustry, sales of Zelda experienced a 50 percent boost. The site attributes that to Switch stock, as “units begin to trickle their way back into retailers”.

One mini-game in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild tasks you with gliding as far as you can. Players are now trying to come up with inventive ways of extending their run and going for the world record.

In a new run, one person used Link’s paraglider to travel 7,616 meters across Hyrule. This was done in 22 minutes, as shown in the video below. It wasn’t easy, and some tricks were used – such as using bomb arrows and the wind as well as plenty of potions to restore Link’s stamina.


A couple of weeks ago, Nintendo produced the special Zelda: Breath of the Wild video series showcasing the game’s creation. Today, a special bonus episode went live. Members of the Zelda team discuss their favorite characters, locations, and shrines, and then share a special message. Check it out below.

IGN caught up with Zelda: Breath of the Wild director Hidemaro Fujibayashi, technical director Takuhiro Dohta, and art director Satoru Takizawa to discuss the game’s creation in greater depth. Some interesting comments were shared about the game’s development. Fujibayashi, Dohta, and Takizawa talked about starting out with a small team, the 2D prototype, making The Great Plateau first, and more.

Fans have come across a new Easter egg of sorts in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. By piecing together results from the first four Shrines, it would seem that the game has a hidden message. We’ve placed the image past the break just to be safe with spoilers.

Like other Zelda games, various mini-games are scattered throughout the world in Breath of the Wild. One of these provides 300 rupees for getting the best possible result. Head past the break for more.

GameStop has once again commented on the performance of Switch. Speaking with investors today, COO Tony Bartel spoke about how there is “incredibly strong” demand for the system.

On the software front, Switch is also doing well. Consumers appear to be buying lots of games, and Zelda: Breath of the Wild almost has a one-to-one attach rate.

Bartel said:

“The demand is incredibly strong for this. As soon as we get it into our stores, it’s out within hours. So we anticipate we’re going to be chasing supply this entire year.”

“The other thing is, every game that’s out there, to have over a five and a half attach rate to this, signifies that a lot of people are finding this a great platform and they’re picking up any games that they can. I mean, we have almost a one-to-one attach of Zelda.”


All sorts of crazy shenanigans can happen in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Tristan Cooper captured one such amazing moment, in which a Guardian and Stone Talus duke it out. As you’ll see below, the Guardian couldn’t stand up to its foe in the end.


Piggyback prepared three guides for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Two launched alongside the game, but the extra special one – the Deluxe Edition – was last planned for release at the end of next week. Unfortunately, it’s now been delayed slightly.

Piggyback wrote on Twitter that fans have been showing an “extraordinary” response to the final guide. The first print run has been doubled and a second printing is planned, resulting in a delay. April 11 is the new date.

A statement Piggyback shared on Twitter reads:

“A sincere thank you everyone who ordered the deluxe edition to the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild guide. The response from fans has been so extraordinary, we have doubled our first print run! Because these books are handcrafted, the increase will slightly delay production. To ensure every fan around the world gets to enjoy it at the same time, it was necessary to push back the release date slightly to 11 April. If you missed out on this first round, don’t worry! We have already begun planning a second printing of the deluxe edition. We can’t wait to share this beautifully crafted book with you and know you will find it an invaluable companion on your journey through Hyrule!”
