The latest entry in the Zelda series, The Legend of Zelda; Breath of the Wild, was recently released for the WiiU and the Nintendo Switch, the company’s newest console. Breath of the Wild has a pretty interesting story. Link, the main protagonist, wakes up from 100 years of stasis, and enters the world of the ruined kingdom of Hyrule, deprived of his memory. He soon finds out that Hyrule was attacked by Calamity Ganon, a pure evil. Zelda, the princess of Hyrule, has been holding Ganon back for the past 100 years alone, and Link needs to defeat it. There are many ways to go about the story, and all are fun. While playing the game, I found myself getting easily distracted from the main story, as the world is gigantic. The only other Zelda games that had a giant world are The Wind waker and Twilight Princess, but in The Wind waker, the majority of the world is just ocean, and the Twilight Princess world was pretty barren and limited based on where you are in the story. In this game, the entire world has interesting secrets to be found. Not even joking on this one: you can go fight the final boss right after the tutorial! This is the first game that I have never felt any sort of boredom playing. Overall, The Legend of Zelda; Breath of the Wild is not just the best Zelda game I’ve ever played, but the best video game I’ve ever played. If you like adventure, mysterious story, fantasy, action and humor, get this game as soon as possible. The Legend of Zelda is a fantastic series, and this game shows that better than anything else.
