Zelda: Breath of the Wild was supposed to be Wii U's saving grace but the console's fall from it was simply irredeemable. But since it's also the new launch title for the Nintendo Switch, people are giving it the attention it sorely deserves. Of course, with a new open world title, progress is not possible without Nintendo feeling it necessary to leave a few things behind.
Zelda Things They Ditched In Breath Of The Wild
Breath of the Wild is more than just a Zelda title, it's the newest and most interesting take on the world of Hyrule. Nintendo assured that Breath of the Wild will be a refreshing great experience and even made changes to the game that derived from its Legend of Zelda predecessors. For example, they removed the chest music whenever Link opens a chest and trimming hedges in Hyrule won't be rewarded by Rupees anymore.
According to PVP live, they also ditched Link's signature green tunic in Breath of the Wild for a cooler welcoming blue. It's possible to get green clothes in the game but Link will be mostly in the blue one. Link's most trusted companion Epona is gone and will not make an appearance in Breath of the Wild. Link will still be able to travel on horseback but requires catching and taming the horse himself.
Breath Of The Wild Is New And Refreshing
The auto-jump on ledges in Ocarina of Time is also gone and players can now take their time jumping ledges in Breath of the Wild. Fighting enemies is also significantly harder in Breath of the Wild, aside from a boosted AI, the weapons break after significant abuse so it's best to leave the strong weapons for harder enemies.
Bombs can now be detonated remotely in Breath of the Wild. Possibly the most significant change in Zelda: Breath of the Wild, however, is Eiji Aonuma's decision to ditch the plain text dialogue for actual voice actors in the game. This will help players have a more immersive experience and a deeper connection to the characters and the narrative of Breath of the Wild.
