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!

Cadence of Hyrule's inside cover is absolutely bare in Europe

I'm drawing a blank

Cadence of Hyrule's retail release is out, and some people in North America have already snagged their copies. As you can see in the image above, the inside cover for the game in North America has some nice artwork on display. Of course, this can be flipped around to be used as the exterior cover for those who'd like.

Over in Europe, the physical copies are a bit different. The inside cover for our European friends offers absolutely nothing. Just a blank, white pair of pages staring back at us. Seems a shame to not put something in there, especially for a Nintendo game. It's equally as odd that Europe got the shaft this time, as they usually have the better luck with inside cover art.

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.

Can't beat it!

It's not often that we get a digital-only Zelda game, but that's what Cadence of Hyrule has been...until today! The musical adventure has finally made its way to retail, and it packs in all the extra DLC. Get a recap on that content in the press release below.

A Moblin approaches. You ready your sword.

A Green Lizalfos hops closer from the rear. The Moblin raises its arm to take a swing at you from the front. The thumping soundtrack kicks into overdrive. The bass drops and you spring into action with a glorious Spin Attack. The battle has begun.

The Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda game for the Nintendo Switch system has a physical edition, which includes the base game along with all three DLC packs, and is now available for purchase at select retailers for a suggested price of $39.99.

Charge through heroic Hyrule battles featuring characters from the Legend of Zelda series while attacking enemies to the beat of classic songs inspired by the games. The physical edition includes the base game along with all three DLC packs, which expand on the game’s content, characters and songs:

· Pack #1 – This Character Pack DLC adds five additional characters to the game’s cast, such as Shadow Link and Shadow Zelda, as well as extra modes, including the All Character Mode with a 21-floor dungeon.

· Pack #2 – The Melody Pack DLC adds 39 remixes from three different artists, so you can choose to play through the rhythmic adventure to the beat of your own drum.

· Pack # 3 – The Symphony of the Mask DLC introduces an additional map and story featuring the mischief maker Skull Kid, well-known for his puckish tricks in The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. Mix up Skull Kid’s abilities by swapping out different masks and uncover the mysteries that await Skull Kid in these strange lands.

With all this included content, there’s enough rhythmic action to keep you and the cast of Hyrule grooving through many grand adventures. This physical version is a great gift for the Legend of Zelda fans in your life, too!
