The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild features an alternate ending

Coming from an IGN interview with Eiji Aonuma... (Google translate)

"There is an alternate ending if you meet certain criteria. If you do a few things, you may see a different ending."

I have played all the Zelda titles, but I can't remember an alternate ending in any of them. Am I forgetting something, or is this a first?

Anecdotal evidence shows Switch preorders swiftly selling out in Japan

We showed you the Switch preorder lines in Japan a bit earlier today. Now we have some encouraging news on how preorders themselves went. Amazon pre-orders went up at 9am in Japan, and the total allocation was gone in just 5-10 minutes. As for brick-and-mortar retailers, it seems that most, but not all stores, sold out of their launch allotments in just 15 minutes. Could the Switch be the perfect console/handheld hybrid for Japan.

Hollow Knight cancelled for Wii U, moving to Switch

We’ve had a long conversation with Nintendo and given their recent reveals, we can now announce: Hollow Knight is making the switch to Nintendo’s new portable/home/hybrid platform!

That’s both sad and happy news for us. Though we can confirm the Switch as a release platform, we also have to confirm that Hollow Knight will no longer make its way to the Wii U. That’s not a step we’ve taken lightly. Our Wii U release has recently been hampered by several technical challenges and though we’d love to see Hollow Knight on our favourite console, we feel the quality difference would end up such that Wii U players will be experiencing a lesser version of the game.

We’re aiming to release the Switch version of Hollow Knight not too long after the platform’s launch.
