About this deal

You'll be able to relive the adventures of Breath of the Wild over and over again, with a special touch that only true fans can appreciate. While Piggyback aren’t exactly strangers to working with Nintendo, their last (and only) Zelda guide book was well over a decade ago with their work on The Wind Waker. These events bring together fans and sellers specialized in the world of video games, so you are likely to find what you are looking for. When it comes to the history of official Zelda guides, Nintendo’s usual go-to has long been Prima Games, who have published walkthroughs on the majority of titles in the franchise over the years. If you are one of those passionate players who long to have something more than just the game in your hands, we invite you to delve into this article where we will reveal all the secrets and surprises that this coveted version hides.

If the map wasn’t quite enough for you but you still want to remain cautious on how much more information you consume, once again you can just use the screenshots alone as a quick visual indicator and ignore the text, allowing more room to ease yourself in rather than hastily absorbing every instruction.There are also markers indicating shrines and “optional objectives,” which include things like Korok Seed locations, enemy outposts and sub-bosses — again, remaining vague on what each objective actually is on the map itself.

In the US, the Master Edition gets you a lovely Zelda-themed case for the Switch console, along with other collectables such as a map and a gold coin. When you put it like that, Link would probably consider slaying Ganon and saving the world the easy part. When activated, the Sheikah Eye symbol will glow a brilliant blue: steadily on in Static mode and pulsating in Animated mode.Many of this material is illustrated in such a way that it offers a small visual insight to the development process and reminds me of how the Skyward Sword concept art was presented in Hyrule Historia. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. Whichever version you go for, The Complete Official Guide is a worthy companion in your adventure across Hyrule. However, when a special game like Breath of the Wild comes along, admiringly defying all of the hand-holding norms of the industry — the tedious tutorials, endless hints and loquacious sidekicks (yes you, Fi) — and offers such a diverse and truly unforgiving world for players to get lost in, we have a rare example of a modern game where outside help is actually welcomed, and the idea of having a physical guide at hand finally feels justified once again. With this latest installment arguably considered the most ambitious Zelda title to date, such a guide needs a lot of care and attention.

The problem with most video game walkthroughs is that, though we may need some guidance through a tricky section, we can be put off by the idea that we may accidentally see more of the game’s content than we’d like; plot details, upcoming boss fights, or locations that will no longer be a first-hand surprise during gameplay should we observe the wrong screenshot or paragraph. While they released Breath of the Wild for the Switch and the Wii U, Master Editions were only for the Switch.I can honestly say that The Complete Official Guide enhanced my enjoyment of an already sublime game, and it’s been a blast flicking through while playing. As someone who prefers to play games without help and in an age where countless walkthroughs are available for free online, I generally find it difficult to recommend official guides as much as I admire the work put into them.

Fils-Aime said the Master Edition will be “extremely limited in quantity,” adding that “when it’s gone, it’s gone. Just a glance at the annotated screenshots can give you a nudge in the right direction; no need to completely spoil solutions until you need to! It’s very refreshing to see this approach as Zelda fans can finally receive the level of help required without the fear of encountering spoilers.The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is schedule to release as a launch title for Nintendo Switch on March 3. His pose is modeled after the official artwork from the game - a wide grin on his face and his signature weapon, Boulder Breaker, in his hands. Surprisingly, the item from Japan arrived on Jan 18, impeccably packaged and matching the description. Turning the page past the aforementioned maps at the start of each chapter will bring you to the step-by-step walkthrough, leading you into the real meat of the guide. Which to be fair might be the only collectors edition that I've ever purchased that's been worth it.
