Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Confirmed to Have Alternate Ending
Fans of the infamous Legend of Zelda (LoZ) franchise have been chomping at the bits to get their hands on the new title ever since its reveal in 2016. LoZ: Breath of the Wild’s release is set to coincide with Nintendo’s latest console, Switch on March 3, 2017. If you weren’t already excited based on gameplay footage, new information has been confirmed that Breath of the Wild will have an alternate ending.
Alternate endings are nothing new to role playing games (RPGs). Popular game franchises such as Dragon Age, Fable, and The Witcher all have choices within their stories that result in different in-game outcomes. The LoZ franchise has never taken part in that aspect of immersion. All that is about to change as Breath of the Wild will have at least two different endings. The news comes from an interview with Producer and Director, Eiji Aonuma.
“There is an alternate ending if you meet certain criteria. If you do a few things, you may see a different ending.”
The choices and actions may not be as prominent or intricate as those of Dragon Age: Inquisition or The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (which has 36 different endings, not including the expansions), but it is an added bonus. Main story elements for Breath of the Wild are still not yet revealed, and we may have to wait until its release to get the full details. How much the endings differ are still yet to be known. Multiple endings give games a certain level of replay value. Making different decisions and taking on extra quests is rewarding to RPG gamers as it gives us a chance to play the game we already love, but get a new experience out of it each time.
You can pick up LoZ: Breath of the Wild on March 3, 2017 on Wii U and Nintendo Switch consoles. Does multiple endings give a game more value? Are you anxiously awaiting the new Legend of Zelda game?
