                                So happy this great effort payed off, 15 million copies sold and Nintendon't really do sales, so you know they made billions.
                                Good for them and now with millions of new Zelda fans the future is looking even better.

                                        I know I'm late but I have always loved this series. Breath of the wilds is just breathtaking in terms of it's open world and how fluent the movement and combat is I would rate this game a 10/10.

                                            This game is the most amazing game I have ever played hands down. However, there is room for improvement. The weapon durability is a huge issue. The next BOTW sequel should fix this. I liked the idea of weapon breaking, making you get a new weapon. But weapons need to last longer. Weapons breaking after defeating one enemy or breaking after one fight with red Bokoblins needs to be fixed. And the rain mechanic needs to be addressed as well. I loved the weather changes in this game, but it needs to rain less, and not right when I start to climb a mountain. I also want to pet dogs and stabled horses. That would be wonderful as well. And dungeons, I mean real dungeons. I miss dungeons so much. And after playing the remastered Link’s Awakening I realized how much I missed dungeons. Please, please bring back dungeons. Big fan of BOTW, great game regardless of these issues. Can’t wait to play BOTW 2.

Instead, Nintendo piddled with yesterday's tech, and played it safe with consoles that would fatten their wallets. and let's not forget the time honored tradition of repackaging a plumber game and asking people to buy it 20 times.
                                                                              Yeah, Nintendo. You all are big risk takers, and leading the industry with innovative ideas...

                                                                              • Goblinlight104

(hint, about 200 HOURS) Also, please make a wind waker remake for switch. And, OOT, Twilight Princess, and like, all of them. Please Nintendo. I would buy all of them!

                                                                                  • cin cin

After seeing some videos it got me to buy a Nintendo Switch just to play this. So glad I did. It is truly immersive and very entertaining. Thank you so much.

I would throw my money at that so hard.
