Nintendo is set to release a new game in the Legend of Zelda series entitled The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Along with the new game, Nintendo is arranging to release its new console the Nintendo Switch on March 3.
Breath of the Wild is going to be an open world adventure, which means the players will be able to walk through the lands of Hyrule with an updated setting including volcanoes, abandoned temples, and grasslands. Players will also be able to interact with characters seen in previous Zelda games.
Another new feature in the game gives food or weaponry of instead of “rupees”, a currency in the game, or hearts. Like the other games the gamer can jump and move around the map, and Epona, Link’s horse, will be a companion for the player throughout the game.
Although some concepts from pervious games are included, Nindindo has made an effort to include new features. One feature, called the “Sheikah Slate” is a new updated map that the player receives at the start of the game.
When the game is released, it will be on two consoles, the Nintendo Wii U and a brand new Nintendo console named the Nintendo Switch. Buyers can also get other games like Splatoon, Minecraft, Dragon Quest XI, Mario Kart 8, and more for the Nintendo Switch.
Switch is not like an ordinary console; it can plug into the T.V. or be used as handheld tablet with the screen showing the game between the Joy-Con controller.
Joy-Con controllers can attach to the tablet on the sides for handheld, or for the T.V. you can attach the controllers to the side of a box that will connect to the console. To turn it from handheld to a T.V. game console, simply detach the tablet from the controllers which are clipped on the side. Then slide the tablet into the slot and the image will appear on the television screen, the plug the Joy-Con controllers into a box connected to the console and it’s ready to play.
“It is pretty cool and not something you can do with PS4 or Xbox One,” said reviewers of the game console Lewis Painter and Chris Martin.
The set price for the tablet is $299. Although pricing is relatively high, it is projected to be the best console Nintendo has ever released.
