The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is on sale now for the Wii U and Nintendo Switch.

The comparisons to some of the best open worlds in the genre are extremely relieving to anyone who was anxious Breath of the Wild might end up feeling like a Ubisoft Zelda game.

According to the publication site there is no map with a World Legend (you know like icons and graphs), which is quite a shame, because World Legends do help with measuring and pinpointing certain locations and special things.

"The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a landmark release for its franchise and Nintendo".

"Trying to figure out when to approach those difficulties is part of the strategy and fun of playing Breath of the Wild, so it was important that it be fun to die", stated Aonuma.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess hasn't aged well. That's the 2003 entry in the series that came out for the GameCube. But the best I have found in the United States is GameStop, which has TONS of options that includes game bundles, controller bundles and more.
