The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the newest installment in the Legend of Zelda series. With beautiful graphics and a brand new open world, the game is sure to be popular among the gaming community.

The game follows the main character, Link, as he explores through the fields of Hyrule, but trouble arises because the evil king, Ganondorf, has escaped to wreak havoc on the citizens. Link, along with Zelda, must try to seal the evils that Ganondorf has released.

The new game does have stunning graphics. The visuals of the game are light and airy and the environment is full of bright colors. The graphics seem full of life, so the game looks like everything flows together. Creators have captured the essence of the wild; they made sure to add a bunch of natural colors that make the environment look beautiful.

The game is also the first in the series to be open world, which definitely adds a new perspective for the series. The game is able to add the new open world setting and blend it seamlessly to the already great features of previous games. However, since it is an open world, it could be daunting for new players, especially since the story isn’t a linear one.

Speaking of the story, it seems like it’s not very creative this time around. Link and Zelda have to stop Ganondorf after he’s been sealed away so far. This isn’t very imaginative, so veteran players may be turned off by the story.

“The game is looking really good!” says Christian Guzman (11) who has been an avid player of the franchise. He goes on praising it by saying, “The game looks like it’ll be a great game because of how it will play differently compared to other ones in the franchise.” And I agree wholeheartedly; this game looks like it will be fantastic.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is shaping up to be one of the best games in the series. With amazing graphics and new features, it can easily be a best-seller. However, it could be held back because of its simple story and because of the open world aspects which could cause some trouble to novice players. Breath of the Wild earns 4/5 Triforces, so go out and invest in it now.
