Hyrule Encyclopedia Reveals Oldest Legend Of Zelda NES Screenshot From Early Build Of Game


It seems that the Original The Legend Of Zelda on the NES was planned to be much different to what we know and love today. A Screenshot from an early build of the game, which can be seen in the newly released Hyrule Encyclopedia in Japan (Not out yet in the west I’m afraid) shows us what looks to be a dungeon select screen in first-person view. The final product however, did not utilize either of these features so it would be plausible that the image was came from a really early build of the game at the very beginning of the development stage. Zeldapower.com tweeted about it on their Twitter account and provided a lovely picture of it which you can see below.

(Opinion) Mike Scorpio On Zelda: Breath Of The Wild


WARNING! This Post May Contain Minor Spoilers!

I have been trying to find the words to describe this game and the time to write them. Alas, I have finally managed to find both and will now take my time to express my thoughts about The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild. I was never a fan of the name to start with and when the game was announced, I did feel a little disappointed that Nintendo’s biggest Zelda Game to date was named like a Discovery Channel Program. Name aside I still had high hopes for this game and the long wait that all of us Zelda fans have endured had me bordering fanatical obsession, constantly scouring the Internet for news that would shed more details about what was to be the best game ever coming to the Wii U (and the Switch).

(Random) Hyrule Historia Paperback Version Found At Kindergarten Fair


A Paperback version of the Legend Of Zelda: Hyrule Historia has been found at a Kindergarten fair by a member of the Nintendo Force Team who have courteously taking a photo of it and tweeted it for all the world to see. After looking online, this paperback version is only available via the Scholastic Book Fair and can’t be bought by any other retail outlets (not counting ebay). It can cost around $20 but these days you can pick up the Hardback version for a few dollars more. There is also no telling if it includes the Skyward Sword Manga short on the final pages like the hardback version does.

[Update] The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Gets the Version 1.1.1 Treatment


Not to be left out, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the latest Switch available game to have a downloadable patch released this week.

 

The update is of course version 1.1.1 and consists of adjustments that have been made to make for a pleasant gaming experience and for players wanting to download the patch, can of course do so whilst playing, or whilst the console is in Sleep Mode as that is proven to download 15% faster.  (Update is also available for the Wii U version of Breath of the Wild.)
