The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Switch Review


Hi everyone! Mr. Panda here with a review of one of the biggest launch games in Nintendo history, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild! A dawn of a new day in Zelda history is upon us, and I’ve explored the open world to see what I can uncover. The experience really is something else, and I’m excited to share what has been quite a review to write. Here’s my spoiler-free review of Breath of the Wild for the Nintendo Switch!

Mr. Panda's Video Game Reviews

Open Your Eyes

The Legend of Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma introduced in 2013 a new project that would “rethink the conventions of Zelda.” Skyward Sword was a step in that direction, blurring the lines between dungeon and overworld. A Link Between Worlds further paved the way, allowing players to explore dungeons in any order by offering every item upfront. But that wasn’t enough. Aonuma desired to see a world that was open to you from the start – one with no single correct track. With The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the team at Nintendo has achieved creating a fully open world that is truly breathtaking.

The theme of Breath of the Wild (BotW) is discovery. As such, I will avoid delving into any specifics, keeping this spoiler-free. Rather, I will offer the gist of what brings this game and all of its moving parts to life.

Besides having different hats, they’ll also have different levels, and differing moves and we have all of that information: Continue reading More Details on the Japanese Ash-Pikachu Distribution for Sun & Moon
