ZELDA BREATH OF THE WILD IS THE NEXT GENERATION OF NINTENDO
This was my third time playing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and my first on the Nintendo Switch. When I first played the game at E3 last year, I was in absolute awe. It was my game of the show and it’s honestly been top of mind ever since. It felt like a world that I wanted to get lost in. It felt so familiar, yet brand new. I wouldn’t say it felt like it was what Ocarina of Time was to the Legend of Zelda, but it definitely felt like the next generation of what many Nintendo fans had come to know and love over the last 20+ years.
Throughout my 20 minute demo, I was able to play the game in both portable mode and using the Pro controller on a TV. In all honesty, the Pro controller felt great, but it didn’t feel like I’d need to spend $99 on the controller. The game felt great using the Nintendo Switch tablet in portable mode. In-fact, I realised that this is the way I’ll be playing this game. It looks absolutely stunning in TV mode, but it looks just as incredible on the Nintendo Switch tablet. It is this game that will make people realise just how amazing this console is. Whether you see the Nintendo Switch as a portable or home console, it doesn’t matter. The fact that you can take the first truly open-world Zelda game on the go without losing any visual fidelity.
