Breath of The Wild Has Set A New Standard For The Series, More Open World Games Expected

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild has changed the way people look at the series. Its open world setting has brought a lot of new players, which have also been attracted by the game’s non-linear style.

Basically, Breath of The Wild was probably the best game to launch Nintendo Switch with, and it seems it might also have set a new standard for the series.

As a matter of fact, series producer Eiji Aonuma has claimed during a recent interview with Famitsu that we could see more Zelda open world games in the future.

I think that, in the future, open air games will be the standard for Zelda

Speaking of Breath of the Wild, the game has recently received patch 1.11. Unfortunately, Nintendo launched this update without giving any hints on what it does, so some users have started looking for improvements.

They’ve found out that the game is no more laggy in certain areas of Hyrule, but such information could only be rumor, since there’s not any confirmation by Nintendo.

Anyhow, YouTuber users ElAnalistaDeBits and NX Gamer have tested the game after the update and they’ve released an analysis video that actually confirms that patch 1.11 has helped improve stability and frame-rate.

Said videos can be found below.

However, one of the game’s missing features is swimming.

Link literally can’t swim, but don’t worry water lovers: there’s a way to “walk underwater“.

As shown by user Swiffy22, if you get hit by an enemy, you will find yourself walking underwater; it’s not actual swimming, but it’s better than nothing.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild is now available for Wii U and Nintendo Switch.
