Step into a world of discovery, exploration and adventure in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, a boundary-breaking new game in the acclaimed series. Travel across fields, through forests and up mountain peaks as you discover what has become of the ruined kingdom of Hyrule in this stunning open-air adventure."

I thought a dedicated thread would be a good idea so the Switch thread doesn't get buried with Zelda posts. Please try to be vague with your progress reports or use spoiler tags. One of the best parts of the game is discovery.

Repost from Switch thread:

I just defeated the first major boss in the main quest line. It was pretty intense and the dungeon was huge!

This game is definitely in my top 5 of all time and I've been gaming for over 30 years. There is just so much to do and I find new clever little things every day! I'd share some of them but I don't want to ruin even something small for anyone.

Come across this and I thought would be nice to share it here. This is a really good video that almost perfectly explain how and why this game is a new benchmark. Making it not just the best Zelda game ever made, also the best game made over these years especially as of late. For those who try to compare especially to games like Skyrim, this is for you.

Good video and I agree with his point of view.

Anyone know a good place to find flint? I have a few but I need more to have something built at the Zora weapon shop.

Does it play well on the Wii or is the controller a kludge?

Nintendo Life reviewed the Wii U version and gave it a 10/10. They didn't say anything bad about the controller.

I've been playing it on the wii u since launch. Visually identical on large screen (yes there are differences but they are REALLY subtle). Wii u gamepad vs switch tablet, much prettier on switch tablet though in my opinion the wii u gamepad is more comfortable. Game loads just a tad slower here and there, nothing dragging though. Both game have framerate dips... in pretty much the same areas.

Finally left the Great Plateau this morning (I'm only allowed to play when my six-year-old daughter is watching, hence the slowness), and it's gobsmacking how big the game is! Can't wait to get stuck into some more shrines. Or find some weapons that don't keep flipping breaking!
