As physical and digital copies of Game Informer’s Breath of the Wild issue are making their way to mailboxes and inboxes, the magazine is continuing its month-long look at the new Legend of Zelda game. While their coverage is (for the most part) careful about spoilers, it may be best to turn back now if you want to go into the game as fresh as possible.
In a recent video, Game Informer team members Kyle Hilliard and Ben Reeves sat down to give their impressions on the several hours they’ve played of the anticipated title. Outside of Nintendo, no one else has had such an extended look at Breath of the Wild and the two men eagerly share their exclusive experiences with the game. Coupled with their impressions is footage of combat so fresh you can smell the horse manure — or the singed sidelocks of a certain unfortunate Hylian hero.
Yes, it turns out Breath of the Wild may be as challenging as Zelda fans have hoped for so long. Neither Link nor his horses are safe in this wild Hyrule with Guardians, Bokoblins, and everything in between on their heels. Check out the video below to see what sort of challenges you’ll face when you pick up the game, and keep an eye out for future news in these next two weeks before Breath of the Wild launches!
