The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Zelda Breath of the Wild Game of the Year

During their latest podcast, former Nintendo of America staffers Kit Ellis and Krysta Yang (known for the long-running Nintendo Minute show on Nintendo’s YouTube channel) shared insight into the Big N’s presence at The Game Awards 2017, including how there was some internal concerns that the company wouldn’t win the coveted Game of the Year prize.

2017 was a massive year for Nintendo. The Switch itself launched in March, and a bunch of big games released, including The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey. In the end, it was Zelda that won Game of the Year.

Zelda Breath of the Wild Urbosa statue

First 4 Figures is creating yet another statue based on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, with Urbosa getting the spotlight this time around. Pre-orders just opened on the company’s website today.

First 4 Figures says that Urbosa’s “dynamic pose makes her appear in mid-twirl, with her skirt and hair flowing free.” The design for the base has the Sheikah Eye symbol, which is consistent with the other statues in the First 4 Figures The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild lineup.

Sonic Frontiers Zelda Breath of the Wild

Sonic Frontiers has drawn some comparisons to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild since its initial reveal, but Sonic boss Takashi Iizuka has indicated that the two are “not similar at all”.

Iizuka’s comments came about during an interview with Shacknews. When asked if the team was inspired by Breath of the Wild, he said:

Original (10/3): The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is once again a featured title for Nintendo Switch Online, with a new set of icons now being made available.

Icons for the game were being offered previously during the summer. However, this time around, it looks like Nintendo has prepared a new set of designs.

Most of the time, a trailer is a sneak peek of an audiovisual work – a way in which companies can show us some nice bits from a game or a movie to convince us that they deserve our money. As soon as we get our hands on the final product, we usually don’t go back to trailers considering that they are just a small part of the whole.

However, there are moments in which a trailer can actually be remembered – when it is so well-made that people frequently go back to rewatch it! In the video below you can see my “analysis” while rewatching the Zelda: Breath of the Wild trailer from the Nintendo Switch Presentation in 2017. Feel free to share your own thoughts about the video in the comments.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild - Link on Horseback statue

First 4 Figures has revealed yet another statue based on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, this time featuring a pose of Link riding on horseback.

“His ensemble which includes his Champion’s Tunic and Hylian Trousers has been realistically textured in gorgeous detail, much like his steed and other elements of this intricate statue,” First 4 Figures says. “Link’s items such as the rucksack, Traveler’s Shield and most importantly, his Sheikah Slate, are also included in incredible detail.” Over on the base, it has stone symbols engraved along the side and vines wrapping around the stone.

We’ve put together a new list covering the top ten games we feel have the best graphics on Switch.

Switch often comes under fire for its specs and graphical capability as compared to other current-gen consoles. Obviously it is not capable of running games such as the recent Unreal Engine 5 Matrix demo, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t full of great looking games. Switch has its own library of beautiful-looking titles, and those that love playing to admire great graphics shouldn’t write off the console.

So what are the games that look amazing and can only be played on Switch? Well, we’ve got you covered with a list of the top ten that personally stand out to us. These are games that are exclusive to Switch, which means there will be a lot of Nintendo developed and published titles on here. Setting it up this way provides reasons to own the system and to play them on it specifically.

Nintendo Switch Online members can now spend their My Nintendo points on icons based on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

The designs will be refreshed on a weekly basis. The first wave, available until June 13, features Link in various poses plus other characters, backgrounds, and frames. Each one costs 5 or 10 Platinum Points via My Nintendo, and a Nintendo Switch Online membership is required in order to redeem them.

mipha statue zelda breath of the wild

First 4 Figures has unveiled another PVC collectible in its Zelda: Breath of the Wild line, with a new Mipha statue in production.

The statue is inspired by her official artwork on the game. “Mipha stands in a gentle pose with her hand gently pressed upon her chest; her other hand wielding the Lightscale Trident,” First 4 Figures says. The product being sold through the company’s website has bright LED functions for the base.

Here’s a rundown of everything that’s included in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – Mipha (Exclusive Edition):

turning red zelda earthbound pokemon

Domee Shi, the director of Pixar / Disney’s Turning Red movie, was able to find some inspiration from some notable Nintendo games like Pokemon.

Growing up, she played Pokemon and Zelda on devices such as the Game Boy Color and DS Lite. Shi was limited to handheld systems as her parents didn’t exactly approve of her hobby. But since they were portable, she could continue playing games by hiding them under her pillow longer than her parents allowed.
