Chapter in this post:
Nintendo has next to the new console Nintendo Switch already announced some games for March 3, 2017, including The Legend of Zelda - Breath of the Wild. The game, which will be released for the Wii U in addition to the Nintendo Switch, rightly bears the title "Breath of the Wild" because it is an open world game, or "Open Air" as it is called by Nintendo. Of course it's about Link again, who has to save Hyrule and defeat monsters and solve puzzles. However, there are also a number of innovations.
The newest game in the Zelda series for the Wii U and the Nintendo Switch becomes an open world / open air game and the player should be free to decide when to work on which mission and where to travel. In addition, The Legend of Zelda - Breath of the Wild will use the largest card in the series. It is even said to be the largest card the Wii U can do. On Wikipedia it says: "The size of the game world should be comparable to the Japanese city of Kyoto" - that would then be 827,90 virtual square kilometers. The Legend of Zelda - Breath of the Wild will not be the only one among the open world and open air games for the Nintendo Switch; because even The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim comes out for the Nintendo Switch.
If you want to get a Nintendo Switch in March and not only play 1-2-Switch and wait for the Mario games (Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in April and Super Mario Odyssey for Christmas 2017), you can get that right at the time of the release buy a new Zelda game. However, if you are afraid of getting lost with Link in Hyrule, you can go to the publisher, which is well-known and popular among gamers piggy back counting. Its solution books for The Legend of Zelda - Breath of the Wild are already available for pre-order. There are three versions of the Piggyback play aid for Link's new adventure: Standard, Collector's Edition and Deluxe.
Of course, you can already pre-order the new Zelda game from Nintendo on Amazon. In contrast to the Nintendo Switch, it is even available. The Legend of Zelda - Breath of the Wild for the Wii U is even listed as a bestseller on Amazon. Like the version for the Nintendo Switch, this version will also be released on March 3, 2017 (or in your mailbox).
I first saw the standard version and the collector's edition of the strategy guide for The Legend of Zelda - Breath of the Wild on Amazon UK. I have just discovered the poorly equipped pages for the solution books on Amazon DE. But there is still no preview image, no prices, etc. If you put the items on your list and then want to buy them later with the Nintendo Switch or otherwise, then these are the links:
Nintendo has been presenting the game at major trade fairs since mid-2016 and some lucky people have been allowed to gamble it excessively since then. That at least conveys one or the other Nintendo Switch gameplay video on YouTube, well and preferably with a length of 90 minutes or more. Here I have picked out two impressive videos of the new Nintendo game with Link in Hyrule for you. In the first from IGN you can see all the items, how huge the game world is, how the day and night cycle works and so on. The second video focuses on taming horses.
On Saturday I went to Media Markt and GameStop to find out about Nintendo Switch, The Legend of Zelda - Breath of the Wild, Skyrim and so on. I also ordered a Nintendo Switch. But I couldn't be guaranteed whether I would be able to pick them up for the release on March 3, 2017. Since I deliberately want to skip the Wii (as well as Game Cube and Co), I will wait patiently for the Nintendo Switch; and looking to play The Legend of Zelda - Breath of the Wild. Until then there will be an SNES and one here Nintendo 64. Thanks to the Super Boy, I can do the SNES too The Legend of Zelda - Link's Awakening play with Link on the island of Cocolint;)
What do you think of the Nintendo Switch, of the new adventure for Link in Hyrule and of all the material that is already available more than two months before the release? Too many spoilers or good attunement? Do you get the Nintendo Switch and the new Zelda game or do you gamble it on the Wii? Feel free to leave a comment on the topic, I'm looking forward to your views :)
