With Legend of Zelda Amiibo figures perpetually sold out and fetching prohibitively high prices on eBay, many fans are turning to bootlegged “Amiibo cards” instead. Many sellers of these cards see themselves not as mere pirates, but as modern-day Robin Hoods, providing fans with the in-game content that Nintendo won’t…
On this week’s Kotaku Splitscreen, Jason and I were joined by our boss Stephen Totilo to talk about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild with full spoilers. We started with the final boss fight.
Over the decades, there have been so many great action games. But which one do people in Japan like best? This poll might shed light on that question.
Of all the weapons in Breath of the Wild, the Guardian gear must be the hardest for a prop-maker to recreate properly. Yet here we are, with a replica Guardian Sword, blue glow and all.
Speedrunning is all about going fast, which can mean shattering world records or performing wild feats. But for many players, speedrunning is less about spectacle and more about self-improvement.
On the surface, Zelda: Breath of the Wild doesn’t have much in common with the new sci-fi thriller Prey. While the games are different in a lot of ways, both are well-made simulations that reward experimentation and exploration. And both give you fun ways to climb around.
You can take a lot of nice photos in Breath of the Wild, but really, what can you do with them? Share them with friends, I guess, but they don’t really care, they’ve seen your horse 100 times before. NV/Haru had a better idea: turn them into a book.
In addition to the big DLC news, Nintendo also released a patch for Zelda: Breath of the Wild today that added something fans have been asking for since the last big trailer: the option for owners of the Western version of the game to play with a Japanese vocal track.
First announced back in February, Nintendo has just detailed what exactly we’ll be getting with the first batch of DLC that’s being offered for Breath of the Wild in the Summer. From new armour to a fancy “smart map”, it all sounds pretty great.
Hi, my name is Mark. This weekend I finished Zelda. I love leaf.
Here is a fun thing to do next time you’re running around Zelda with nothing to do: try and make the big guys kill each other.
It was only a matter of time before Breath of the NES caught the eye of Nintendo and got pegged with a takedown notice. According to its creator, however, the game will live on.

Wondering how the Switch is doing around the world? What about the new Zelda? Nintendo announced their global sales figures in a newly released financial statement.
Conquering a game’s challenges over and over again can make you feel invincible. With a new world record in sight, one Breath of the Wild speedrunner decided to get flashy with the final boss. Too bad Ganon was having none of it.
As we’ve seen, you can play Breath of the Wild on a PC using an emulator. It’s not exactly optimal, but there’s a tiny bright side to the struggle: you can open a busted treasure chest that on both Switch and Wii U is inaccessible.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild does not dole out rewards predictably. Often you’ll spend an afternoon figuring out some elaborate puzzle, only to walk away with some rupees or a weapon you didn’t need. Other times the reward will be just as “useless,” but more special than any pile of loot could be.

The fastest speedruns in Breath of the Wild are slightly over forty minutes. Link wakes up, rushes to Ganon, and saves the world in the blink of an eye.
