As of now, not much is known about the Zelda: Breath of the Wild Amiibo coming out for the Nintendo Switch. 

Earlier this year we were able to see the Link Wolf in action at E3, which showed the player porting Link Wolf from their Twilight Princess game into Breath of the Wild for WiiU. We were able to see Link and Wolf Link playing together which is truly awesome. The video showed Wolf Link more as a pet that could help during combat and retrieve objects, (think of dog meat in fallout 4). Based on the Wolf Link compatibility, I would say it’s safe to assume the new Zelda: Breath of the Wild Amiibo should have just as useful functions.

Link (Archer) Amiibo:

Avg. Price $15.99

Going for 15.99 at most retailers, I’m going to assume that when activated you’re able to get either the arrows, or the bow and the arrows. Well, let’s all hope so because that would be pretty cool. Either way the Amiibo itself looks really well made.

Zelda Amiibo:

Avg. Price $15.99

It has been hinted that Zelda, a.k.a Sheik, may be a playable character in Breath of the Wild. From the looks of it, it is assumed this Amiibo will spawn Zelda in-game. It is unsure if she will be playable or possibly just used as a vanity pet similar to Wolf Link. I will gladly take any help she can give me in-game.

Link (Rider):

Avg. Price $15.99

I’m curious about this one, since taming horses is not only an aspect of the game, but the horse itself can actually aid in combat. The Link Rider Amiibo may possibily give you your first horse free, or give you a hooded version of Link. Personally if this Amiibo only spawns a horse I may not pick it up. Unless this hourse is somehow significantly more powerful than the other horses found in-game.

Guardian Amiibo:

Avg. Price $19.99

If you saw the video where Link got obliterated by that death laser, then you definitely should be excited about this “little” guy. I’m hoping this Amiibo can be used as a tank and sniper hybrid. Either way, the guardian Amiibo is one of the more unique ones available. You can even manipulate the arms as they are bendable.

Bokoblin Amiibo:

Avg. Price $15.99

I’m not sure I’m going to want a figure of an enemy that is not only going to torment me in game, but also looks like it’s mocking my ability to play. I have tiny trump hands dangit! Stop mocking my play style you bokogoblin you!

Wolf Link:

Avg. Price $19.99

If you’ve played Twilight Princess and finished The Cave of Shadows, than you can port Wolf Link over to Breath of the Wild as a companion pet for help with combat, hunting, gathering, etc. This Amiibo was originally exclusively released as a bundle with Twilight Princess, but if you search around you can find the Amiibo for sale separately. 

What is your take on the Zelda: Breath of the Wild Amiibos? Which ones will you buy? And what do you think they might add in-game? You can talk to us through Twitter @NinSwitchNet or Facebook.

If you have not heard yet, Zelda: Breath of the Wild is set to render at 900p rather than 1080p. However, you don’t need to worry, this is a very minor variance and Zelda still shines with the gorgeous art style.

Earlier today Nintendo sent IGN the specs for the difference between Zelda being played on the Wii U and the Switch. Take a look at the key differences below:

  • Both are set to launch on March 3rd, 2017.
  • Both have a framerate of 30FPS.
  • Both versions offer the same exact content.
  • In TV mode, the Switch will render Zelda: Breath of the Wild at 900p (down from the rumored 1080p), and the Wii U will render the game at 720p.
  • The Nintendo Switch version has higher-quality sounds meaning the game world will sound more realistic.
  • The Wii U physical game will require 3gb of available memory on the system.
  • Button layouts will be different for both system (Duh).
  • A special Edition and Master Edition of the Wii U version are NOT available. Another great reason to get the Nintendo Switch version.

Why did Nintendo choose to release Zelda: Breath of the Wild with a 900p resolution? As of right now, no one really knows. Perhaps this allows the title to run smoother on the Switch. It really does not matter that much, and all of the gameplay we are seeing looks stunning. Unless you are going to be playing on a massive movie theatre style HD screen, you’re really not going to notice the drop in resolution.

Besides, art style trumps graphics any day. For example, ICO was, released on September 24, 2001, and the game still looks amazing. ICO still looks amazing because it has a very intriguing art style. Games like these hold up because they do not have to rely on graphics, they instead rely on story, music, gameplay, and atmosphere to create a world that keeps pulling you back in.

What are your thoughts on Zelda: Breath of the Wild being released with a 900p resolution on the Nintendo Switch? Overall, there is not much to be disappointed in, and the Switch is showing first hand how much more powerful it is than the WiiU.

Here we are 10 days before the Nintendo Switch presentation and we are getting a rumor that Zelda Breath of the Wild will indeed be a launch title for the Nintendo Switch.

This report comes from Laura Kate Dale who originally reported Zelda Breath of the Wild would not make the Nintendo Switch launch due to delays in localization. Here is what she stated on Twitter:

 

Laura Kate seems to be pretty sure stating Zelda is “100%” going to be available at launch in the U.S. Honestly, I always believed Zelda would make it as a launch title so I can’t necessarily argue with this report. Yes, this is only a rumor at this point but we can put an end to this rumor on January 12th. What are your thoughts on this rumor? Do you think Zelda will make it as a launch title or be delayed?

Nintendo release some Zelda Breath of the Wild new footage at the Game Awards which took place last night. Here’s a recap of all the footage.

If anyone else was stuck working all last night then you missed the Game Awards just like I did… it sucks. Never fear though, I have created this recap to focus on the footage we all wanted to see. We all know everyone wanted to watch the game awards just to see this amazing Zelda breath of the Wild new footage. Here is a look at the teaser trailer Nintendo put together for us.

 

There has been all kinds of speculation rising up over this trailer. Several times throughout the trailer a female character is teased. This female happens to look A LOT like who we all know to be Zelda! Is it possible we will have the opportunity to play as Zelda? Or perhaps she plays alongside link throughout the story? At this point it is all speculation so we won’t know for sure till we get a further announcement, but Nintendo needs to stop teasing us like this. There is only so much hype I can take right now.

As if the teaser trailer was not enough, we even got some brand new gameplay footage from some Nintendo reps:

This showcased a new are we have yet to seen and it looks amazing! I love the fact they showed us a small little boss fight, and some stealthy approaches. I am a HUGE fan of being stealthy and sneaking up on enemies. I will be taking full advantage of some sneaky tactics in Zelda Breath of the Wild. I’ve had this gameplay on repeat for the last hour, and I can not get enough of it. I am ready to get my hands on Zelda Breath of the Wild for the Nintendo Switch. What do you guys think of the brand new footage? Let us know in the comments.
