Nintendo drops Zelda: Breath of the Wild Making of bonus session

- Takuhiro Dohta, technical director on Zelda: Breath of the Wild, speaking about his favorite shrine in the game.

So it was with a certain amount of trepidation that I picked up "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild", Nintendo's newest masterpiece, which takes about 60 hours to complete. And I'm told that Hyrule Castle, the one final part of the game I haven't played yet, is also something of a letdown in that regard, rather than one hugely challenging final dungeon to navigate. I suppose I'm about as good a cook in Zelda as I am in real life.

Below, you'll find galleries and solutions for every single shrine in Faron.

The shrines in Breath of the Wild aren't just about being compelling brain teasers. The latest cool snippet from the game takes us back to a past Zelda game, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

Interestingly enough, though, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild isn't the only Nintendo product that gets caught in Smosh Games' crosshairs, as the Honest Trailer also makes fun of the Switch.

"This title features a huge range of sounds, from the small environmental sounds to the dynamic music when a big boss suddenly appears, so I hope you will all pay close attention to the details that went into the sound for this game as you play". I've thrown away Royal items left and right at this point, leaving elemental weapons in chests in Shrines because I already had two additional copies of them. It's great learning what really inspires the creators of this game to include certain gameplay elements and aspects.

Members of the Breath of the Wild development team have recorded a new video in which they talk about the game, its characters and more.
