The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was released on 2017 for the Nintendo Switch and Wii U console, and it was developed and published by Nintendo. It is known as an action-adventure game focused on the difficult journey of the main character, called Link. 

The game is similar to its first version Legend of Zelda (1986) and permits the player to walk freely in the open world, having diverse opportunities to explore the game as you want. It starts with Link waking up in a cave a hundred years after Calamity Ganon, the antagonist, captured princess Zelda and casted darkness to Hyrule’s world. 

The interesting fact where the game is based in is that players don’t have the fundamental answers. They don’t really know what happened a hundred years before neither does Link, who woke up without memories but with the hard task of being Zelda’s last hope. 

The Legend of Zelda was nominated as the Game Of The Year in the 2017 Game Awards, being a really impressive game and, in contrast to many others, this game says “yes” to anything you ask it for. Optional tasks besides the main ones, weapons and abilities improvement, climate changes, elixirs and meals to make, an open world to explore and monsters to fight. 

With this game, there is no way to get bored. It presents a boundless way to play and an engaging story, that gradually shows past events long forgotten by Link which also makes the players to think if Link and the princess had a romantic relationship before. 

But whatever the answer to all that happened in the past is, the only way to find it out is playing, getting to know The Legend of Zelda secrets.
