I play BOTW on Switch and it was/is amazing I got all 4 divine beasts and calamity Ganon! I still have to do the shrines though but I’m obsessed with this incredibly amazing game and I guys deserve lots of credit from everyone who bought the game and from me! Well done! It’s an game that I can’t forget!!

You can still get it if you find all the Shrines, or get certain Amiibo. I personally dyed the Hylian Tunic green and thinks it actually looks even better than either of those options.

I’m watching this to get a sense of how long I’m gonna have to wait for the sequel. Someone thought maybe end of 2020 but that seems way to early. End of 2021 or mid 22 sounds closer. 😰 anyways, I’ve been reminded that I want to try playing the game in French, maybe I should do that while I wait

This video was interesting to know how the people who create a videogame do the game, and my favourite game in this case XD.
Edit: like if you think making videogames are more harder than defeating Ganon whit a stick.

BOTW is that type of game you play when you have a bad day and just want to dissapear into another world, love it and cant wait for the sequel🤗
Harumaki - 5 days ago
That's my feeling with all the Zelda games, they are just pure magic. Specially my loved and favorite one, Majora's Mask. A masterpiece.

I actually did what he said... I'm from a spanish speaking country, but I have my Switch in english, and I played the game in italian with english subtitles, because at the time I was learning italian. It was a great experience.

So *takes out my Hello Kitty calculator* if they begun the creation of Botw in 2013 to sell it in 2017 that makes like 4 years of development and since they announced the developement this year (2019) it means that it will probably be released in 2023 because 2019 + (2017-2013) = 2023

best zelda game ever.
they are all great, but this one is very special. its the elements of nature, where nobody thought of that gave oppertunities in gameplay.
there was no music wich makes you felt one with nature, brilliant.

I'm pretty sure Botw 2 is gonna take less longer to develop, since they're using the same game engine
Boboloboloo - 13 days ago
Same engine plus (probably) most of the assets (npc models, weapons, etc) plus some new ones. Honestly, having a general design for the overworld is probably gonna take a year off the development time alone
fergy19872002 - 13 days ago
I have played ever Zelda ever made, this is by far the best Zelda game. Am very excited to see what BOTW 2 expands on in the original format. waiting on bated breath for the next instalment. Thank you for continuing the game on switch

@Gamentor ah, I see
Gamentor - 12 days ago
Probably not. They've got a lot of stuff from the first game to work with like -an already made engine -a detailed world to use as a base for the sequel's -already created basic game mechanics -likely, a good amount of leftover assets, given all the weird directions they tried to go in the conceptualization of the first one -a lot of feedback from the first game Also, given the trailer, they've likely already picked a direction to take the new game in. Though, they are probably still very early in development as they are speaking in rather uncertain terms about it. I personally expect/hope the game will take about 2 and half years to make and will release in late 2021 or early 2022.
Flávio - 13 days ago
Oh my I really wish Nintendo could make this version of Link (2:51) available as DLC. I'd love to play truth this more mature and "realistic" version of Link.

only thing I don't like about the game is its short unconventional "dungeons" if you can even call them that. they took less then an hour to finish. 1:17 like that. I miss the thrill of hearing that sound and wondering what I just got.

Well they can re-use assets this time so it won't be quite as excruciating. The game will probably take like 2 years instead of 5.

It's sad that Treehouse couldn't pull together actual good voice acting in English. Aonuma and Fujibayashi's vision deserved much better than that!

The game that killed Zelda for me, espeically after I heard the next one will be like this. Congrats Nintendo you lost a player that's been playing since 1986.

6:12 Is literally my favorite thing to do.
Because if you get a metal boomerang (Lizal/large) and throw it with the right timing, it'll smack into your enemy's face and then BLAST them away!
This game was true genius in action.

All the Zeldas are amazing - I'm plaing Minish Cap right now and had to buy a used Gameboy Advance to do it but I love Zelda that much that I went for it - Minish Cap was the only Zelda game I had not played - I think Breath of the Wild is the most epic game I've played - I'm also going (on recommendation) to play Bloodborne and Witcher 3 on my PS4 soon enough - I know I'm spoiled :)

Nintendo beats every other game company there ever was. PlayStation and Xbox doesn't compete with nintendo. They wanted more people to buy it and instead of being lazy they put together a wonderful game where anyone from everywhere can play it. They even went the extra mile to get a voice actor for each language. Great job nintendo for making the best game i have ever owned.

I think the best thing of breathe of the wild is the music. It has this beautiful, vast, skin shivering beauty to it. Like the orchestral to an age old adventure film.

Nintendo, have you considered making a phone that's mainly a gaming platform? It could be something similar to the Switch that relies heavily on bluetooth peripherals. Basically, for all of the calling functionality, bluetooth peripherals would be used. Then, when it's time to game, the full device could be used much like the Switch is now. It's just a thought. I think you can enter this domain as phones are already regularly priced at $800.00 USD. ^_^V

Honestly can’t play any other open world games now cause botw’s creativeness and openness is completely unmatched
This game has become my favorite gaming experience and one of the greatest experiences I have had in general. It was motivating enough for me to have over 330 hours on it with 100% completion in master mode. Thank you Nintendo for the overbearing dedication put into this Zelda entry.
