For those of us that picked up Breath of the Wild for Switch, we’re familiar with the numerous control schemes on offer. There’s using the JoyCon grip that comes bundled in with the system, the excellent Pro controller that I’ve been using without exception thus far, or if you prefer the Koizumi Lounge Position™, there’s the separated JoyCon option.
Players of the Wii U version though, are largely limited to the gamepad or Pro controller. This is despite what the box may indicate. Eagle-eyed redditors have spotted that the case for the Wii U option lists numerous compatible control schemes, including Wii-mote and nunchuck, a Wii Classic controller, and even a single Wii-mote on it’s own!
There’s clearly been some sort of balls up somewhere along the line, as none of these options are actually compatible with the game. There’s no clickable sticks for a start, so Link would be out of luck if he fancied stealthing up on a Bokoblin camp for example.
Whoever was in charge of the sleeve design was clearly too excited by the awesome artwork on the front to pay attention to what they should and shouldn’t be adding on the back!
