Day #6 Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2??
I woke up to insane news this morning and I am so excited to share it with you all!
Last night, Nintendo had its E3 conference, which usually includes a bunch of announcements including new consoles, DLC and games. There was one announcement in particular that absolutely made my year.
I basically screeched when I saw the first ever teaser of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel! I was really hoping for a sequel and now it’s official!! Click here if you haven’t yet seen the teaser!
Of course I played Breath of the Wild and it was amazing. I am currently playing through the DLC on master mode and I may or may not have just had my butt kicked by Thunderblight Ganon, but it’s still loads of fun (the game, not having my butt kicked).
I have no idea how much time in total I have spent on the game – probably 50+ hours on normal mode alone, finishing the story, side quests and shrine quests. All I know is I have totally been invested since the beginning and almost 2 years later, I’m still loving it and dreading the day I finish master mode, because I don’t want the adventure to end. But now, the adventure will just continue in the sequel!
Breath of the Wild is a beautiful open world game with a great story that really made investment easy. I can’t explain how in awe I am every time I’m playing – the graphics, the scenery, thr characters; everything is just astounding.
I also love all the hidden secrets that there are to uncover. The shrines add a puzzle aspect to the game and I’m going to lie if I say I haven’t consulted Google a few times to figure some of the puzzles out. I didn’t find any of thr shrines impossible – some just require you to think out of the box a bit.
The combat is definitely one of my favourite things aboutvthe game. It’s really up to you how you want to aporoach a battle – you could either just go in and fight multiple monsters at once with various weapons ranging from spears, claymores and even the Master Sword, or you could decide to be more strategic and creative by using the objects around you (metal objects, bombs and even bee hives), as well as the runes on the Sheikah Slate to take out tons of monsters at once without even swinging a sword. You can also engage in long-range bow fights and battle on-horseback. The sky is the limit when it comes to the combat and that is what I love so much about it – there isn’t just one linear way of fighting or going about playing the game in general. You can really play thr game however you want. If you really wanted to, you could go fight Ganon at the beginning of the game – your chances of success would just be very slim (trust me, I tried). It is an RPG, so you need to collect stronger weapons and armour throughout the game in order to succeed faster and easier.
Breath of the Wild has been a big milestone for Nintendo and with the sequel now being in development, there’s no telling what they will accomplish next and what heights they will reach. It’s hard to believe that it can get better than the first Breath of the Wild, but I have high hopes for this sequel.
I can honestly not wait for it to come out and embark on an all new adventure!
Have a great day!
