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.

Bloodstained officially announced for Switch, Wii U version cancelled
The team behind Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night has made it official: the game is heading to Switch. Additionally, plans for the Wii U version have been cancelled. News about a Switch version of Bloodstained first emerged earlier this month.
In a Kickstarter update, it’s noted that “the situation has drastically changed after the release of Nintendo Switch.” It made sense to include Wii U during the campaign as Switch wasn’t in the picture at all, but that’s no longer so. “This change made it difficult to receive the necessary support from the hardware maker, which has led us to drop the Wii U development and shift the development to Nintendo Switch,” the Kickstarter update reads.
Those who supported Bloodstained on Kickstarter can change their backer survey platform from Wii U to Switch or any other version. A refund should also be possible under most circumstances.

While Switch was in early development, Nintendo reached out to Cyanogen about a partnership. According to former Cyanogen CEO Kirt McMaster, the two sides would have worked together on a custom-made OS, which would have been based around Android. Nothing ever materialized as McMaster told Nintendo to “stick it.”
McMaster wrote on Twitter:
