      This (and Terraria coming at a close second) gave me some of the most immersive and fulfilling gaming experiences out of anything I've played so far. Hyped for BOTW 2

          Love this game a lot, at the time of making this comment I still have yet to play it. Although Cemu is looking really promising! Nintendo has a really good vibe that I just cant figure out why they are so different! Good work Nintendo!

              Wow, the subtitles in this video are really mediocre guys... Like they translate the main ideas of what people are saying, but they're missing a lot of the nuance...

              Still really interesting to get a glimpse at the behind the scenes for BOTW, but I think videos as interesting as this deserve a better quality control on the subtitles

                  Is this the same orchestra that made the instrumental version of World of Light?

                    Wow a development team that actually cares about making their game fun, and making sure it hits the fans every expectation, and not looking for every way they can suck the players pockets dry

                              8:35 My family can't play the best game of all times (zelda) because Nintendo does not include portuguese language support. We are such a small people in the world, just 260 million speakers. That's sad!

                                                  I play BOTW on Switch and it was/is amazing I got all 4 divine beasts and calamity Ganon! I still have to do the shrines though but I’m obsessed with this incredibly amazing game and I guys deserve lots of credit from everyone who bought the game and from me! Well done! It’s an game that I can’t forget!!

                                                            You can still get it if you find all the Shrines, or get certain Amiibo. I personally dyed the Hylian Tunic green and thinks it actually looks even better than either of those options.

                                                                I’m watching this to get a sense of how long I’m gonna have to wait for the sequel. Someone thought maybe end of 2020 but that seems way to early. End of 2021 or mid 22 sounds closer. 😰 anyways, I’ve been reminded that I want to try playing the game in French, maybe I should do that while I wait
