At Nintendo’s Switch Showcase, more details were revealed regarding the controller set-ups, launch titles, et cetera. However, like preceding years’ E3 expos, ‘The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’ turned alot of heads.
The game is part of a ever-expanding library of Nintendo’s long-running Zelda series. Although most games in the series have followed the formula, ‘Breath of the Wild’ is insistent on innovation. The game, previously linear and confined is now open for players to explore. The open-world genre is definitely expanding, although not always to the games’ benefit, but this action adventure series was begging for an open-world overhaul. The game is also taking a page from great open-world-advernture games like ‘The Elders Scrolls V’ and including many mechanics that fit well within the genre, such as collectible loot, hunger system, wildlife AI, a modular story, and more.
More on ‘The Legend of Zelda: The Breath of the Wild’ soon on aisyd Games.
