    I just hope Nintendo stop making each Zelda entry canon. Its very boring to see Gorons and Zoras over and over. Each games could be its own entry with full creativity.

    The most perfect game. I hope the sequel is just as brilliant.

    I've played Zelda for years but I just recently for Christmas got the Switch and this new Zelda game. It is my favorite Zelda game ever! Nintendo has out done itself with the open game concept. The graphics are beyond impressive. Adding more content on the DLC' S is fantastic for more added game play. I can't wait for the sequel!

    I had high expectations for this game, but it has exceeded those expectations by a lot.

    1:36 And then the entire staff got together and considered what to change and what to leave unchanged....
    Shows a cucco swarm.... Because Zelda isn't Zelda without those pesky cucco's 😂

    This is by far the best game experience I've had in years - love the Switch and BOTW - my 6yrold kids love watching me play this too - its like a story that keeps unfolding. Nintendo did good.

    More stuff like this. Behind the scenes in how these games are made are great for people who want to learn how it works and possibly want to make their own games one day.

    So you decided to break the Zelda mold and make something new but true to Zelda's heart!
    The result: a worldwide acclaimed game as the best of the franchise so far, overwhelmingly beautiful and successful

    I don't like bow it could of being so much better... It does have its own unique style and feel to the game just felt some what disappointed I guess. Being such a big fan of wind waker and link to the past. And ocarina of time.. Was thrown off guard shame because I really wanted to love this version it does have amazing landscape it's great fun to explore didn't think much of the shrines.. Miss the dungeon levels.. Maybe nintendo will release the N64 & gamecube versions

    They should do this series with every major Nintendo game. Hearing the developers and their ideas to make the game is pretty awesome

    My favorite thing about BOTW that is commonly overlooked, is that combat is almost always an option. For a player like me who loves combat, i’m able to engage myself with as many enemies as i please. However, with a player like my mom who hates fighting, she’s able to avoid most enemies and focus on collecting items and exploring (which is her favorite part of the game). This game is truly beautiful and was clearly well thought-out and planned so that everyone, no matter age, race, or gender, can enjoy it in its entirety.

    This game is insane and I could be playing it anytime. I can't wait for the next realising BOTW2 !!!

    Dude at 3:40 remind of the husband who always gets beat up in Kung fu hustle. Other than that I wish Xbox had developers who gave a damn and a good time frame to work on games. We were in a drought ever since the Xbox one launched

    I don't know but. Zelda from other years had a lot of celtic culture, was not with futuristic elements. I can't feel the old atmosphere anymore. I think sometimes is very good to look for the past, sometimes innovate is not to do better.

    I don't understand how these people created the game. They're not revealing much about how it was made happen!

    Imagine if BotW was officially playable on PC, and how much more amazing the game would be with PC level graphics.

    I hope the idea at @3:32 makes it into BOTW2. I'd love to run through a raging battlefield as Link. It looks so well implemented in the demo they show off here.

    Breath of the Wild is right there with Ocarina as my favorite games of all time.
    There are plenty of other games that I love a lot, but no other games left me quite in awe the way those two games did/have ♥️

    I'm kinda sad that they didn't go through with the alien abduction/battle bit. Would've been a nice touch...
