A Hilarious Honest Trailer Arrives for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild (VIDEO)
Smosh Games has done it again. The American comedy duo has unleashed their “Honest Trailer” treatment upon Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild, and everything you love (or hate) about the action-RPG is fair play. Though BOTW has been the recipient of record-breaking review scores since its release, Smosh has still managed to find plenty of ammunition with which to drag Link down from his lofty pedestal and hurl him into a pile of (already broken) pots. Check out the Honest Trailer below to find out which NPC gets referred to as Benjamin Button.
Despite the obvious intent of the trailer – “We’re funny and we enjoy watching Link get his butt kicked” – the first thing Smosh does is rather understandably poke fun at the significant amount of hardware issues the Nintendo Switch has run into since it launched earlier this month. The trailer then goes on to commend BOTW for dropping some of the series’ formulaic features, such as the linear gameplay and the “7 hour tutorial.”
“-In favor of the massive open world, that treats you like you might have played a video game before in your life.”
This is right about the time when Smosh begins to draw parallels between BOTW and other games. Even without outright naming the games, it’s pretty obvious which titles they are referring to.
- “Getting lost for hours on your way from one objective to the next” – Fallout
- “Skyrim your way up towering mountains-“
- “-then hang glide off them like you’re playing Just Cause!“
- “Complete innumerable side quests” – Final Fantasy
- “With tons of punishing systems, and brutal foes that will one-shot you without a second thought” – Dark Souls
- “Forcing you to use your cooking skills to prepare for fights like you’re playing the Witcher, and horde weapons like you work for the Knife Channel”
The Breath of The Wild Honest Trailer is pretty hilarious, and I would personally give five stars to any outlet that refers to Zelda as “Princess Renaissance Faire Accent.”
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild is currently available for the Nintendo Switch and Wii U.
