Musician St. Vincent says she's put 300 hours into The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

ONE OF US

St. Vincent is known for her music, but she's branching by appearing in a a new film called The Nowhere Inn. During one of the scenes St. Vincent had to play a video game, and it just so turned out that she was given a Switch as a prop. That right there got her sucked into the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. You can check out what she had to say at the 6:08 mark above, or just read the blurb below.

"Fun fact...I needed a gaming console for that scene. One of our producers had the Switch and had Zelda, the new Zelda in it. That was my favorite game growing up, but I hadn't really gamed since then. I was doing it just for the movie, but then...I was like, 'no hold on guys, wait...I'm about to get this tree branch.' Now I'm obsessed with that game in particular. I've probably put 300 hours into it."

Nintendo Minute - The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild: 24 Hour Survival on Eventide Island

Got a minute?

Nintendo Minute is never a minute! Today we’re going back to the world of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to see if we can survive for 24 hours on the infamous Eventide Island. It’s pretty interesting to see what happens in a full 24-hour period at one location in the game. Let us know if you’ve tried this or if you’ve done the Eventide Island shrines. They’re pretty hard! As always, thanks so much for watching and we’ll see you next week.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild glitch teleports you directly to an enemy

Well that's handy

Another month, another glitch discovered in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This time around, players are working with a glitch that teleports them across the map to a waiting enemy. It doesn't seem to matter how far away the enemy is either. All the player has to do is enter “bullet time” while pressing Y at the same time as they pull out their bow. This should prove pretty useful in multiple enemy encounters!

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild speedrunners invent the 'All Dog Treasures' speedrun category

Keep those doggies fed!

Watch Breath of the Wild - All Dog Treasures in 1:35:51 from Vivoxe on www.twitch.tv

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild had a decent amount of dogs, which unfortunately, you can't pet. What you can do is feed them, and that's all speedrunners needed to find their next challenge.

The 'All Dog Treasures' speedrun category has speedrunners dashing around the map to feed every single dog as quickly as possible. No Ganon battles, no 100% completion tasks to worry about. It's all about making sure the dogs are well fed, and that's a speedrunning goal I can get behind!

Creature in the Well was inspired by Dark Souls and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, says dev team

Creature in the Well might be a pinball game at its heart, but it's also an adventure game filled with mystery and exploration. In an interview with Gamasutra, developer Bohdon Sayre talks about where the team drew inspiration from for the game's vibe, which you can read below.

Adam created an early concept about this mysterious town that was trapped in the middle of the desert. It was isolated, and although there were people still living there, it was very melancholic. We took that and evolved a mood that took inspirations from games like Dark Souls to create a setting that we liked.

One of the first scenes I roughed in was the start of the game, where the player walks through a barren desert to reach the back entrance of the Temple. It was inspired a lot by Zelda’s Lost Woods (in most recently Breath of the Wild) and the goal was to set players up for a mindset of exploration and hunting for secrets. All of the environments were really designed with that same mentality: making something asymmetrical and mysterious, building the setting in which the strange story takes place.

Check out some unboxing videos for the Zelda: Breath of the Wild "Zelda" Nendoroid

Another fantastic Nendoroid

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 'Zelda' Nendoroid has finally shipped out to customers in Japan, and many are eager to share their unboxing videos on the internet. Along with that, the reprint of the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 'Link' Nendoroid became available at the same time. You can check out a video below that shows both Nendoroids being unboxed.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild fan-made animation is a wonderful tribute to the game

Breathtaking

Would you love to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild again, but you don't have the time to do it? Watching this animation from Lee Jumi and Seon Seungyeon should more than do the trick, as it really encapsulates what the experience is all about. It's easy to tell a ton of work went into this, and a love for the source material is woven through. This really made me want to jump back into the game, and even had me tearing up a bit. I'd say that's two signs of this being a fantastic tribute!

Zelda: Breath of the Wild player shows a slick way to grab yourself a Sand Seal

Now that's pretty smart!

PSA: Fastest way to get Sand Seals is to bomb them. Much faster if you use Korok Leaf to launch bombs. from r/Breath_of_the_Wild

Looking for a quick-and-easy way to get yourself a Sand Seal in Zelda: Breath of the Wild? Redditor Lainerjob24 has come up with a unique solution that involves Link's bombs. If you want to take things a step further, you can throw in a Korok Leaf for some extra style points. Either option should be much easier than trying to snag one of these Sand Seals by just sneaking up on them.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild fan spends 2 years making real-life versions of the game's weapons

Don't mess with this guy!

There are Legend of Zelda fans, and then Legend of Zelda super fans. It's safe to say that Redditor Tomvdcr falls into the super fan category. Tomvdcr has spent the last two years recreating Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild weapons and items in real life, and his results are pretty impressive. Looks like the perfect armory for a serious cosplayer!

100% accidental Microsoft goof lists a random mobile game as The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild with HoloLens support

How does this even happen?!

Just to be 100% clear right off the bat, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is not getting Microsoft HoloLens support. Still, somehow, Microsoft's official website has a listing for just that, but the information under the Zelda title includes screens and a broken English rundown for some random mobile game. Check out the blurb for yourself below.

The new Adventure with The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild is coming!!! Introducing the Robber Run Again! Play as The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild and collect as much going and gems as you can on your way. Be careful to not kick and fall from different obstacles on you way, and from Police officer too. Like you play rise of the tomb raider. Collect Coins And Diamond In Game For Unlocking Additional Character In Game quantume break.

It looks like the developer of the game might have included some false information in their description, and Microsoft's site pulled data from online and ran a Breath of the Wild title/cover. Surprisingly, the listing has been up for over a day, which makes us wonder when they'll get around to fixing it!
