The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Nintendo is continuing to promote Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe with a new “Switch My Way” commercial. Check out the advert below.

A sale is going on at Best Buy and Amazon right now for physical Nintendo Switch first-party titles. This includes Super Mario Party, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.

The sale is pretty substantial with these physical titles dropping 25% from their retail price of $59.99 to make each $44.99. Not a bad deal to consider, and we have all of the retailers currently offering these prices (with links) below.

Outside of today’s new trailer and footage, there are a couple of specific aspects we wanted to highlight from today’s Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity update at TGS Online 2020.

First, young Impa is officially confirmed for this game. This was more or less confirmed based on the first trailer, but now it’s official. She’ll have more than just a cameo though, as Impa will be fully playable. You can see her official art above.

As part of this month’s NPD report for the United States, we have some interesting information about the performance of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

The game again charted in the top ten having placed at #6. What’s more interesting is that the game has ranked among the top seven best-sellers on Switch for 42 consecutive months. Amazingly, it is as the 10th best-selling game on Nintendo platforms in US tracked history.


The Zelda series is known for many different aspects, but its emphasis on music is right up there. We’ve seen a number of interesting details emerge from the series’ various entries such as how the main theme for Skyward Sword is Zelda’s Lullaby when played backwards.

On the topic of Zelda’s Lullaby, that comes into play once again for Breath of the Wild. It turns out that the game’s Guardian Battle them is an inversion of that classic song.

As Reddit user aVeryLittleStoat explains:

The popularity of Zelda: Breath of the Wild really hasn’t waned since launching over three years ago. That’s especially true within the modding community, which has come out with a rather interesting project.

Modder named Waikuteru has completely recreated Luigi Circuit from Mario Kart Wii. It’s not just as simple as bringing in the track though, as it exists inside its own mini-game. Players ride the Master Cycle Zero and avoid obstacles as they head towards the finish line.

Here’s a look:

Back in 2017, Nintendo held a CEDEC session that delved into the development of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Although that took place a few years ago, some of the images shared during the presentation are making the rounds today.

What fans may not know is that during the presentation – which was not open the public – Nintendo offered a look at early footage from the game. It unfortunately seems that we won’t be able to see that footage, though we at least have a few off-screen screenshots.

Amazon has discounted a few Nintendo-published games for Switch. The digital versions of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Kirby Star Allies, and Octopath Traveler are all down to $39.99. Normally, they’re $59.99 a piece.

All of these games can be found on Amazon here. It’s unclear how long the sale will go on for, but it’s possible that it could be through the end of the week.

This week’s episode of Nintendo Minute has gone live. In today’s video, Kit and Krysta take on a challenge in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to see which is faster – running or riding a horse. Check out the full episode below.

Continuing on with its “Switch My Way” commercial series, Nintendo issued a new advert for Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Check it out below.
