The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the most anticipated titles that’s coming to the long list of games from Japanese videogame giant Nintendo. However, even though the hype is real for many fans of the hero in green, there are still so many ways wherein this brand new title to the series can go very wrong. While the trailers and early gameplay videos promote a lot of what players can experience within the game (and a lot of them do point to positive aspects), there are still some scenarios that can happen wherein the game can go south.
Reasons Why The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Can Become a Disaster When it is Released
First of all, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now known as the first LoZ game that is on an open-world map. While most Zelda games enabled Link to move around a pretty large map, this time around, he gets to explore a world wherein just about every part of the map is unlocked; well, except for the dungeons that do need some kind of special access before you can go in. While the new way wherein Link can explore Hyrule is great, there might be a smaller focus on dungeons this time around; and for many LoZ games, dungeons do play a vital role for the entire franchise.
It has been repeatedly said by Nintendo that Breath of the Wild will feature a kind of large dungeon structure for areas that can be explored. However, and so far, demos of the game won’t let players see that. Instead, there were 100 smaller shrines that have been advertised on the dot of the now finished open-world Hyrule map.
Another possible reason why the new LoZ title can go south is because of performance issues. Considering that the game will be released for the Wii U and the almost unknown Nintendo NX console, there is enough ample opportunity for performance issues to arise on both pieces of gaming hardware. For instance, the Nintendo Wii U might not be powerful enough to support various aspects of the game. Therefore, since the NX will be a beefier gaming console, it might be clear that there will be obvious comparisons between the performance of the title on the two machines.
Lastly, when it comes to Legend of Zelda games, especially The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, fans of the franchise are not too fond of gimmicks. They would like, as much as possible, to retain the dungeon exploring, puzzle solving, monster defeating, boss hunting, and secret uncovering type of gameplay that the series has been known to offer. Therefore, if this new title is going to be a success towards new and old fans, it should have the least amount of over-the-top gimmicks as possible.
