How far Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s influence goes

Posted on February 6, 2022 by in News, Switch

Since its launch in 2017, everyone expected The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to be influential in the gaming industry. The title received a rare level of praise and brought a new life to the “open-world” genre.

Breath of the Wild is almost five years old and we can already witness how it has influenced some games in different ways. In today’s video, I try to pinpoint the new things that the title brought to the table and how it inspired other developers. You can check the video down below.

For those that missed our previous video, you can check it out here – we talked about how Mario 64 and Banjo-Kazooie laid the groundwork for 3D platformers. We’ll also mention that we looked back on what we feel is Nintendo’s greatest acquisition ever in Monolith Soft, the developer of the Xenoblade series – give it a look here. Last but not least, with the recent release of Pokemon Legends: Arceus, you may want to catch up on our recap here.
