Traversing Breath of the Wild’s Hyrule unveils somber narratives inferred through its ruins and decimated villages. But it’s not all sorrowful. Some of the game’s most bizarre tales are told through its strange NPCs and locales, and they’re amazing. It’s true there are eerie happenings and sidequests in other Zelda titles over the course of the franchise’s 30-year history. 2013’s A Link Between Worlds’ macabre villain turned some of Hyrule’s denizens into paintings. When Twilight Princess’ shadow beasts dropped from the sky and surrounded my Link in 2006, I got shivers every single time. Then there’s The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask which takes its dark themes and oddities to a whole other level. 12 Reasons to Play The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask This Winter will bring the remake of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask where Link must save… Read more Majora’s Mask takes the cake for being gloriously creepy and my penchant for weirdness is part of the reason why it’s my favorite The Legend of Zelda title. So when Breath of the Wild (sometimes) stepped into peculiar territory, I was enthralled. Advertisement There were many strange READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!

After intentionally giving myself a complete media blackout prior to the release of this game, I was completely blown away by this game. From the day that I bought it, I was not able to put the controller down. As I went along i was keeping log of a lot of the challenges that I came across as well as other aspects of the game. Since I have built a Legend of Zelda subsite to this domain, I decided to make a Breath of the Wild walkthrough. The main story and a lot of the side quests were fairly straight orward. They provide a challenge, but none really had me stumped to the point where I felt that It was a perfect topic for the walkthrough. In saying that I did include a FAQ section where I brought up some questions that people might have for common aspects of the game. If anyone feels they have something to add to the walkthrough, or has any corrections, please point them out. There is report tool at the bottom of every page that can be used to let me know how bad a job I really did :D. The Legend of Zelda: Breath…

You know times are strange when even Zelda games are getting season passes, and here we are. Nintendo announced today that Breath of the Wild will get several pieces of downloadable content throughout 2017. Advertisement The season pass will be $20 and come with two DLC packs. One will add a hard mode and a Cave of Trials (like Twilight Princess) while the other will add “a new dungeon and a new original story.” The whole package will also let Link wear a shirt with a Switch logo on it, for some reason. Here’s Nintendo: Advertisement Starting when the game launches on March 3, players will be able to purchase an Expansion Pass for $19.99, granting access to two new sets of downloadable content for the game when they become available later this year. Immediately upon pre-purchase or purchase of the Expansion Pass, three new treasure chests will appear in the game’s Great Plateau area. One of these treasure chests will contain a shirt with a Nintendo Switch logo that Link can wear during his adventure, exclusive to the Expansion Pass. The other READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!
Did you know that Mario’s last name is also Mario? He’s not alone. Apparently, it’s an ongoing gag spanning multiple games over at Nintendo HQ, where they jokingly give characters silly full names. Advertisement Game Informer recently sat down with game developer legend Shigeru Miyamoto and Breath of the Wild producer Eiji Aonuma to ask 51 rapid-fire questions, most of them kinda silly. It’s a treat to watch: I guess it makes sense for Link to have an odd last name: he’s not human, Nintendo says. Another fun fact: the original design document for Zelda apparently referred to the game as “Adventure Mario.” Bonus: Miyamoto and Aonuma’s answer to “what’s the secret to a happy life?” is real good: READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!
The debut trailer for the Nintendo Switch was packed with good-looking 20-somethings playing in fashionable apartments and rooftop parties. As a 40-something father, it didn’t feel like a product aimed my way. Nintendo’s Super Bowl ad fixes that feeling. Advertisement While many people remarked on the millennial festival that is the Nintendo Switch preview trailer, it’s something that’s been nagging me since the console’s October reveal. Though the company is often cast as the more family-friendly of the three major game console makers, the Switch preview trailer featured no children, no parents. After years of Wii and Wii U advertisements featuring a parade of gamers from toddlers to white-haired grandparents, the lack of age variety was quite noticeable. I know the games Nintendo teases in the preview trailer are games I want to play. It’s not like the company was suddenly chopping away at both ends of its demographic, but in a way it felt like that. The Switch was not a console the company wanted an aging gamer to imagine playing with his or her children. And so Nintendo’s Super Bowl ad, a first for the company, has READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!
