More than five years of development and an arduous skill is what now continues taking away the dream to Eiji Aonuma, the current producer of the saga The Legend of Zelda. The surplus of Shigeru Miyamoto is very long, but the Japanese artist does not want it to be too much. Names like Ocarina of Time resonate in our heads constantly when it comes to citing the best works that this medium has ever given; But Aonuma wants The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to be one of those, that Nintendo Switch can elevate to the saga and to itself to the Olympus of that possibly has never been lowered.
Today we are amazed with the last great trailer of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild shown the first day of this month of December, a video that in a few minutes has allowed us to reach many conclusions and extract information apparently hidden or that Has gone unnoticed by future buyers of the most ambitious adventure Nintendo has ever developed.
Before we begin, it may be said that the following paragraphs may contain spoilers, information that many of you may not want to know in order to arrive completely virgins at the launch of the game. As for the date, we still can not say anything about it. We’d like to. It has been commented on several occasions that the title will come together with the launch of Nintendo Switch, but the Big N has never said that. Moreover, everything suggests that it will be delayed a few more months in order to be the game, with capital letters, that we all hope.
Hyrule will be huge in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, that’s obvious. Unlike what was shown in the first videos and that trailer that we saw in late 2014 with Miyamoto and Aonuma playing together (and assuring that the title would see the light in 2015 …), this time Hyrule is not only vast, Is also nourished. It has come to life and is no longer a vast, almost empty environment. The atmosphere is much more in line with what a great sandbox refers to without leaving that halo of solitude and constant danger that Link feels and lets read between the lines in his face.
The plot of this Breath of the Wild seems to be much more developed than ever, with a load of dialogue proper to an adventure game and not just the metaphor of the saga itself, where values and a goal are put on the table: Zelda. Here is something else; We will see characters of which we know practically nothing, hidden dungeons, hidden territories, tools unknown to all.
Maybe that’s what makes the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild great, and it’s Nintendo that when we embark on this adventure it’s something completely new and set new standards in the franchise. In this way, not only will Link be lost and baffled, not only will Link see for the first time those environments and this is the new way to face our destiny, but we, the players, will do it the same way.
