December is typically a slow month for video game releases, but now there is some very exciting new games for PS4 and PS5 that you should look out for. The big headliner is Cyberpunk 2077, which is now finally getting released after so many delays. Other very promising games include Immortals: Fall of Rome, Dragon Quest XI S Supplementary Edition, and several other RPGs. However, one game that really isn’t getting the attention it deserves is The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. While it is definitely not as exciting or fun as the other games on this list, it does have its own unique charm.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a role-playing game where Link, the main playable character, goes through various portions of Hyrule while solving puzzles along the way. It is much like any other Zelda game where Link has to save the Princess Zelda who has been kidnapped by Ganon. Link starts off with his trusty green tunic, which helps him stay invisible and allows him to move quickly. You can switch between the human form and beast form with the click of your finger and Link’s inventory menu is accessed with the left trigger, just like in any other Zelda game. This makes the game play much smoother and faster.
Just a few days before, I was lucky enough to score an early copy of the newest release of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the PC. This amazing new game promises to be just as fun and exciting as the other games on the previous consoles and current PCs. For those that do not know, Zelda: Breath of the Wild originally launched for the Nintendo Wii back in 2021 before being ported to the Xbox 360 and then to the PSP. This portable version is currently targeting a spring 2021 release on the Nintendo Wii U.
The latest version is a huge improvement over the previous games. I really enjoy the adventure gameplay and am looking forward to getting this new game. The publishers really need to make this a positive experience for Zelda fans that are eager to play this latest release. If the gameplay is too similar to other adventure games or the heroine is too weak compared to previous characters, then it will fail to attract many fans. Many gamers also have trouble creating their own Link to help fight Ganon and rescue the princess.
There are also rumors that the next Zelda game will be released for Nintendo 3DS later this year or in 2021. If this is true, then the publisher is certainly trying to cash in on the success of the Wii Fit. With Wii Fit, the game requires the player to use more of their body weight than usual in order to play the game and it is selling very well. The New Zelda will surely be published by the same company but it won’t be as successful. It’s possible that we may see the publisher move it to a new platform such as the PS3 or Xbox where it may have a better chance at success.
There is no definite release date for the New Zelda yet but it should be before the end of this year. If you are really interested, you can purchase the Wii console right now from any major electronics retailer in your area, if you don’t want to wait for the release date. Also, visit the official site to read some behind-the-scenes information on the newest game. I’m pretty sure you will enjoy the exciting gameplay and the exciting story line.
