For the uninitiated, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is an action-adventure video game which saw a release in March for the Nintendo Switch and Wii U. It is the latest addition to The Legend of Zelda franchise. As such, players still take control of series protagonist Link. The game was initially set to be available for the Wii U. However, due to delays, it later became a launch title for the Nintendo Switch, on top of being the last Nintendo-produced game for the Wii U.
In terms of extra content, the game features a DLC called The Master Trials. This brings in new gameplay modes, as well as new items and other features. Notably, it also includes a higher difficulty level that players can choose should they opt for a more challenging approach to gameplay. Another DLC, called The Champions’ Ballad, will reportedly become available in late 2017.
Notably, Breath of the Wild boasts of an open-world format. With this, it breaks away from the typical format of The Legend of Zelda titles. With its updated gameplay and massive amounts of new features, Breath of the Wild has received critical acclaim following its release.
