  • The Nier Automata PC release date has been confirmed

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is here and real and spectacular. "I didn't think I'd feel the Zelda magic this strongly ever again, but I couldn't be happier to be proven wrong". "It's everything I want from a game and one of the most rewarding experiences I've ever had". If you're one of those players who likes to go in prepared, then this is excellent news.

Buy as Sony point out, whatever you end up playing you're in for an unbelievable time - in what they rightly say has been a superb year for gaming so far.

At GDC 2017, game director Hidemaro Fujibayashi revealed a prototype version of Breath of the Wild that, at first glance, sure looks like the 1985 NES title that began the franchise.

The newest Zelda has an aesthetic link to the past.

Best Buy, due to limited supply, is going to be in-store only for the foreseeable future, and they provide the option to check available stores, which you can and should do.

"The game feels, in so many ways, like what Zelda has always strived to be", Kotaku's Jason Schreier writes in his review.

Russian Federation denies accidentally bombing SDF forces in northern Syria
US troops working with the coalition were within three miles of the airstrikes and were not endangered, said Army Lt. Stephen Townsend, commander of Combined Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve.

According to IGN, before he made a decision to fully test these concepts in the more complex systems of a 3D Zelda world, he first enlisted Breath of the Wild technical director Takuhiro Dohta to develop a 2D prototype that would include pieces of the game's physics and chemistry systems.

The second DLC pack will release during the holiday of this year and will include new challenges for players to complete along with a new dungeon for exploration and a new story.

Aside from being an amusing video in its own right, this footage proves that the classic Zelda experience is alive and well in Breath of the Wild.

Was Breath of the wild enough of an excuse for you to pick up the Nintendo Switch, or did you decide to wait for a few more games like I did?

It's hard to imagine a game in recent memory with more riding on it than The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild is praised for its art style and character design but the performance might lose its smoothness once in a while even in the Nintendo Switch. It's a handsome thing and though Link had his trusty steed Epona in other games there's something special about the idea of finding a horse in the wild and earning its trust.
