Zelda: Breath of the Wild may have come out over 3 years ago, but fans are still showing their love for this amazing installment in the franchise.
The latest tribute to the game comes from Redditor TheHyliann, who put together a real-life version of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's Great Flameblade. Obviously this one isn't imbued with fire, but it certainly looks that way! You can even hang it up on the wall mount to activate the lighting inside. All in all, the project took about a week to make, and it uses a cathode anode at low voltage to light things up.
While Genshin Impact shares many elements of Breath of the Wild such as cooking and shrines, other parts of the game stand out heavily as something pulled directly from Breath of the Wild. Here are our favorite picks of the most significant similarities.
Genshin Impact has turned a lot of heads with many calling it a Breath of the Wild clone. Resident Breath of the Wild expert RinHara5aki dissects and puts his thoughts into what he thinks of Mihoyo's latest release.

What do you do while you wait for Nintendo to show off more of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2? You create custom content for Zelda: Breath of the Wild, of course!
A modder has managed to take Skyview Temple from Zelda: Skyward Sword and transplant it into Zelda: Breath of the Wild. You can see how the dungeon turned out in the video above. It even features custom background and battle music in shrines, as well as HD textures!
The curated fun crafted by Nintendo in Zelda: Breath of the Wild ended for most players long ago, but the joy continues through exploration, glitches, and more. Yet another bug has been discovered, and this one makes the game go completely wonky.
All you have to do to make the game freak out is push a Hinox into a waterfall. You can do so by using Magnesis on a treasure chest or other item, and keep bumping into a Hinox with it to push it along. Eventually the Hinox will glitch through the waterfall, and the whole game goes wild. Physics are complete off, the camera allows for completely free movement, and much more. Check out the video to see the glitch in action!
Nintendo's Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act page is the go-to place to find out what's up with amiibo, and it has once again given us some information on what to expect in the near future.
First up, we have confirmation that the Dragon Quest 'Hero' amiibo is officially in production. That shouldn't surprise anyone who's been following the news on Smash Bros. Ultimate amiibo. Production has taken place in both July and August 2020.
Last week, we also noted that reprints for some Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild amiibo were in the works. We first saw that Mipha and Revali were getting another production run, but now we see that both Urbosa and Daruk are joining in as well. We should see them hit stores in the near future.
The King of Games is known for having some of the classiest gaming apparel out there, and they've always got something new in the works. Their latest item is a gorgeous-looking hoodie that pays tribute to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
The King of Games is working on a 100% cotton made hoodie that honors both The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, along with the Champions’ Ballad DLC. You can find each Champion’s dedicated logo on the back neckline of the hoodie, and the inside lining is directly tied to the carvings you see on Sheikah Towers.
The King of Games’ Breath of The Wild themed hoodie is priced at 12,575 yen (118.10 US dollars). You can check out more pics of the design here.
Nintendo loves to do all sorts of neat tweaks, tricks, and callbacks with the music in their games, but there's no doubt they really strut their stuff with the Legend of Zelda series. There have been countless examples of Nintendo sneaking in special musical nods in Zelda games, like the backwards Lorule Castle theme in A Link Between Worlds, and the reverse Zelda's Lullaby tribute in Skyward Sword's main theme. Now another secret has been found, and this one was tucked away in Breath of the Wild.
The image above shows off what Reddit user AVeryLittleStoat has discovered. It turns out that the Guardian Battle theme in Breath of the Wild is actually tied to Zelda's Lullaby from Ocarina of Time. The image indicates that the two tunes are an inversion of one another, meaning the notes flipped positions on the staff.
You can hear the two examples in the videos above. The first plays Breath of the Wild's version of Zelda's Lullaby, which comes in at the 20 second mark. The second song is the Guardian Battle, and it kicks off with the inverted three-note melody right off the bat. Without a doubt, the two tunes are linked...no pun intended.
Things go a level deeper when you dive into these tunes from a story perspective as well. Obviously Zelda's Lullaby is tied to Zelda, but the Guardian Battle theme is as well. Zelda was partially responsible for creation of the Guardians, but then they got corrupted by Calamity Ganon. Taking Zelda's Lullaby and inverting it for the Guardian theme makes perfect sense!
