Trivia

This is the first Zelda game where the main storyline doesn't involve a fixed linear sequence until the end. The only mandatory quests are 'Follow the Sheikah Slate', 'The Isolated Plateau' and 'Destroy Ganon', the other 12 main quests are entirely optional. After doing the former two quests in the beginning, the player could theoretically proceed with the last one and finish the game, and although that is extremely hard, there are several videos on youtube of players who pulled it off.

Very possibly the best game ever made
7 March 2017 | by samuelsnyder-33369See all my reviews

Wow. This game may not be perfect, but it's damn near it. Possibly the best launch title for a game system ever. But if you're not quite sold on the Switch, I would get a Wii U, some games, and BOTW. Everything about this game is the most perfect it could've been. Screw XBONE, PS4, and PC. You don't have BOTW
