[The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild] Bokoblin Genocide Simulator
..is the new Legend of Zelda.
*record scratch noise*
Wait, no. Actually, this is it:
This new chapter in the Zelda series will expand the boundaries of Hyrule. Previous Zelda games have tried to convey the feeling that you're part of a huge, living world, but this game looks to be the first one to deliver on that promise. Just like A Link Between Worlds, this game will also challenge the tried-and-true conventions of the Zelda series.
After a long development process and several delays, the game has finally been released on March 3rd, 2017 worldwide on both Wii U and the Nintendo Switch. In terms of gameplay, both versions are identical, but the Switch version will feature better graphics, a more stable frame rate and a better draw distance.
A number of amiibo will be compatible with the game:
The Wolf Link amiibo, which originally came packaged with Twilight Princess HD, allows you to summon Wolf Link, who will accompany you on your adventure for a while. Wolf Link's health depends on the health you had when you cleared the Cave of Shadows in Twilight Princess HD.
The Zelda 30th anniversary amiibo allow you to get various items in the game.
Finally, five brand new amiibo will be released alongside Breath of the Wild. Their ingame functionality is currently not known.
A number of special editions for the game will also be released - however, only the Switch will get these. If you only own a Wii U, your only option is the standard edition.
The Special and Master editions are being sold in North America while the Limited edition is exclusive to Europe; however, since the Switch is region-free, you could import the other versions.
