The Legend of Zelda is making it's Wii U debut in style.
Forget everything you know about The Legend of Zelda games. Step into a world of discovery, exploration and adventure in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, a boundary-breaking new game in the acclaimed series. Travel across fields, through forests and to mountain peaks as you discover what has become of the ruined kingdom of Hyrule in this stunning open-air adventure.
Features: Explore the wilds of Hyrule any way you like - Climb up towers and mountain peaks in search of new destinations, then set your own path to get there and plunge into the wilderness. Along the way, you'll battle towering enemies, hunt wild beasts and gather ingredients for the food and elixirs you'll need to sustain you on your journey.
More than 100 Shrines of Trials to discover and explore - Shrines dot the landscape, waiting to be discovered in any order you want. Search for them in various ways, and solve a variety of puzzles inside. Work your way through the traps and devices inside to earn special items and other rewards that will help you on your adventure.
Be prepared and properly equipped - With an entire world waiting to be explored, you'll need a variety of outfits and gear to reach every corner. You may need to bundle up with warmer clothes or change into something better suited to the desert heat. Some clothing even has special effects that, for example, can make you faster and stealthier.
Battling enemies requires strategy - The world is inhabited with enemies of all shapes and sizes. Each one has its own attack method and weaponry, so you must think quickly and develop the right strategies to defeat them.

Read any review anywhere, this game is a MUST HAVE for any Nintendo owner. It has stunning visuals and amazing game mechanics. Completely open world, there are hundreds of game hours in this newest Zelda. Lots of side quests, different areas to explore, customization and a beautiful storyline.
I was entranced watching everything from the breeze shifting grass across open plains, to Link riding through treacherous swamps and battling against glowing mechanical beasts. Incredible.

This game is absolutely stunning and an absolute joy to play. Newcomers to the series will be greeted with a vast world to explore, a wealth of self-contained puzzles to crack, and a whole host of tools to tackle a wide variety of different combat situations. Veterans of the series will enjoy a brand new Zelda experience that, to the credit of Nintendo, somehow still feels like its predecessors. In a lot of ways, it feels as if this game brought Zelda back to its roots, and it certainly is a return to form. The game's difficulty is punishing, but it rewards tenacity, creativity, and exploration. If you have the patience to deal with defeat, re-evaluate your strategy, and sometimes outright think outside the box.

A Zelda game that's been at least 5 years in the making, Breath of the Wild has been on every Wii U owner's radar since the console launched. Breath of the Wild has a huge scope, an art style that looks to mimic Wind Waker's cel shaded look and a story that looks deeper than past Zelda titles. Definitely a must buy on the Wii U.

As a Legend of Zelda I can't wait for the next instalment to this series. Legend of Zelda is a series of games that is famous for it's music, puzzler and battle perspectives all put in one game and Breath of the Wild has not let us down in. It has (excuse the pun) taken my breath away. The new type of Zelda could change the perspective of this series for all eternity that we know. The world is so open and large and as we have seen by E3 and by the trailers that the plot will stay a mysterious secret until the revealing of the game this year in 2017. I await with eagerness of the revealing of this game by Nintendo!

The Legend of Zelda games are fantastic. The new Zelda for the Wii u will be the first Zelda game to be open world! The artistic style and graphics look stunning and Nintendo should be able to achieve something incredible with their new hardware. This game could be the best Zelda yet.
