GameReviewPad contributors give their reactions to the E3 2016 gameplay of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Wii U/NX).
When Nintendo announced that a new The Legend of Zelda would be the only playable game at E3 2016 and no digital event, everyone was worried that Nintendo threw in the towel. The time came for the Treehouse to stream what is now The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. In short, this game blew my expectations.
First let’s talk about the controversy that started online from a “reliable source” saying players will have the ability the change Link’s gender. Once the rumor was squashed there was a small uproar over this. Without standing on a soapbox, I feel that is up to the developer for what they want to do and not have it shoehorned in because of backlash. Yes, I would love to play a game as Zelda, since the franchise is named after her. But, for now, playing Hyrule Warriors is your answer. For female Link, play Hyrule Warriors Legends as Linkle.
Even though the Treehouse spent all seven hours with the game, I only spent two and was sold on all new elements, not only for this game, but for the open world genre. It was stated that the E3 demo only showcased two percent of the game. With elements added that I’ve never seen done in other games, this is the first Zelda game I’m excited for. The only question for me is should I get it for the Wii U or NX?
