It’s all over, Crash Bandicoot has been hunted to extinction and Kratos lies dead with a Master Sword in his chest: Zelda has won E3. The guys over at Brandwatch have been tracking social media activity around the event and have confirmed what we all knew, Breath of the Wild is the most talked about game. And by some margin.

They looked at the games mentioned in the conferences from EA, Ubisoft, Microsoft, Sony, and Bethesda, as well as Nintendo’s Treehouse live presentation, and analysed the number of mentions each game got between Sunday and Tuesday, with Breath of the Wild far and away the most discussed title shown this year. We here at ZU are probably responsible for half of that, given all the info Nintendo has thrown at us was shared with you lovely people! Either way, Nintendo must be pleased with the response the game has gotten, but they all need to go away and finish it now so we can all play it. 2017 has never seemed further away.

        i see some Sites mad at Nintendo because certain issue

  • DimensionalRanger

    Considering my initial reaction to the game, this seems logical.

  • Greg Sanders

    This has easily been the most discussed, naturally grown excitement for a game on social media. The sheer amount of tweets alone that I’ve followed is really encouraging. Nintendo and Zelda are still a powerhouse in gaming, no one could argue that.

      This is why I really wish Nintendo would go back to doing live E3 floor presentations like Sony and Microsoft. They always have the best reveals and reactions!

    Don’t be so full of yourselves. There are plenty of other Zelda news sources. You’re not responsibly for half. Facebook and Twitter alone, without articles commenting, but from people watching the live streams, probably accounted for well more than half.

    But besides Zelda Universe there’s Zelda Informer, there’s Gamnesia, there’s Screenrant, there’s Gamerant, there’s the countless mainstream and semi-mainstream media articles like Forbes covering this…

    Don’t get me wrong. You’d done good coverage. But you’re not alone in it, not even close.

      I absolutely agree, there’s plenty of other great sites out there (I should know, I follow them on a daily basis to look for more Zelda coverage on the site!). I think Phil’s comment was meant to be tongue-in-cheek rather than a serious boasting, but apologies if it didn’t come across that way.

      Thank you for complimenting our coverage, it is appreciated! 🙂

    The thing is that all these blah blah must translate into sales, big sales… I hope BotW sell like hotcakes.
