Just two days until launch!

The cover of the latest issue of Famitsu highlights Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, which is launching for Nintendo Switch this Friday (November 20th). 18 pages in the magazine are dedicated to the game, among which includes an interview with Eiji Aonuma and the Koei Tecmo Games dev team. Currently only available in Japanese, we'll be sure to update you as soon as any notable information is translated.

In the mean time, you can check out this full-page advert that highlights both Age of Calamity and Breath of the Wild. Two great games in what soon will be a trilogy!

Zelda: Breath of the Wild fan makes a life-sized replica of the Great Frost Blade

So cool...

I made a life size replica of the Great Flame Blade and now the Great Frost Blade from r/Breath_of_the_Wild

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 not that long ago. This time around, he's shifted his focus to the Great Frost Blade. As you can see in the video above, he absolutely nailed the look and feel of the blade. It's about as close to the in-game version as you can get!

New Zelda Breath of the Wild mod incorporates Age of Calamity content to make Hyrule look restored


A user by the name of banan039 has modified The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in such a way that appears as though the land of Hyrule was never destroyed within the game. Rather than ruins and destroyed buildings, there are flourishing villages. This mod incorporates the buildings seen in the upcoming game Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. So for players that just wanted to see what these villages could look like without fighting dozens of monsters at a time, please refer to the video above!

Zelda: Breath of the Wild mod makes every enemy a Golden Lynel

A golden opportunity

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild surprised a lot of players with its difficulty. Most Zelda games aren't known for being super difficult, and while Breath of the Wild isn't surmountable by any means, it certainly provided more challenge than any Zelda game in recent memory. Still, that's not enough some players who are looking for more.

That's led us to the video above, which showcases a mod meant to make Breath of the Wild that much more difficult. The most challenging enemy in the game is considered to be the Golden Lynel, which you only spot a few times on your adventure. With this mod you'll end up seeing them all the time, as every single enemy has been replaced by a Golden Lynel. Everywhere you turn, climb, sail, and drop...a Golden Lynel could be waiting!

Father builds a Zelda: Breath of the Wild playhouse for his kids

Now let's see a life-sized one!

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild gives fans an amazing virtual playground to explore, but wouldn't it be nice if some of that fun could be brought into the real world? That's what one father decided to do by creating a real-life playhouse styled after a home in Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Obviously this took a ton of work, but you can see how it all came together in the video above. The end result is pretty much spot-on, just scaled down for kids. I'm not going to lie...I'm really jealous!

Did you know that the Divine Beast themes in Zelda: Breath of the Wild hide morse code S.O.S. signals?

Another secret hidden in plain sight

Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the gift that keeps on giving. There's so many little features tucked away inside the game it's insane, and some people are just discovering elements today.

Today's feature is one we actually covered in the past, but we lost the original post due to a hardware failure. Couple that with the recent re-discovery of this by some people, and I think we have a good enough reason to share a second time.

In Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the Champions were in desperate need of help in their battle, but they unfortunately didn't make it. While they may no longer be part of the living world, their spirit lives on, and their call for help from the Divine Beasts echoes out 100 years later.

In the video above, you can hear a compilation of the tunes that accompany each Divine Beast. Hiding in the background of the audio is a very distinct sound. Believe it or not, Nintendo incorporated Morse code for S.O.S. into the themes. It's very faint, but once you hear it, it's hard to ignore. In the video above, one of the best places to hear the very quiet tune is in the zero to three second mark. Listen very closely, perhaps with headphones, and you'll no doubt hear the distinct pattern.

If you need a reference for what Morse code sounds like, you can hear the regular version of the pattern here.

Mod allows you to play Zelda: Breath of the Wild using the Ring Fit Adventure Ring-Con

Hope you're ready for a workout

As the years roll on, people continue to find new ways to enjoy The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The latest twist on the gameplay involves using a different controller altogether.

A new mod allows you to use Ring Fit Adventure's Ring-Con to play Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and as you might expect, it gives you one hell of a workout. From battling enemies to climbing towers, get ready to sweat your ass off!

Ring Fit Adventure surpasses The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's physical Switch sales in Japan

Time for a crossover!

While The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild broke franchise sales figures all over the world, including Japan, the series still isn't that popular in its nation of origin. That's why today's sales data update shouldn't be too surprising, but it's still impressive.

The latest week of sales data for Japan shows that Ring Fit Adventure has managed to sell 1,668,843 units. This means it has surpassed total physical sales of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on Switch, which sits at 1,662,966. Now obviously Breath of the Wild has sold a decent amount of digital sales, which would bump that figure up. You could even toss in sales of the Wii U version of the game as well if you want. All that said, Ring Fit Adventure's achievement, especially in the face of stock shortages, shows the long tail and serious success of the game.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild fan makes a life-size replica of the Great Flameblade

This thing is FIRE!

I made a life size replica of the great flame blade ! from r/Breath_of_the_Wild

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.
