Daily Briefs (Apr. 4): Famitsu previews (inc. Zelda: Breath of the Wild) / TAS

Today’s Daily Briefs: latest batch of previews from Famitsu magazine (including one for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild), but also…

  • Tool Assisted Speedrun


This week, the following will be showcased in Famitsu magazine:

  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Wii U, Nintendo Switch), with a 20 page article including 10 page of interview with the developers (including Eiji Aonuma himself), a B3 size poster (with the illustration used on the cover of the March 3rd issue at the front, and the E3 2017 illustration on the back), and a lot more.

An interesting tidbit from the interview: Eiji Aonuma confirms that the “open-air” style of The Legend of Zelda will be the standard for future The Legend of Zelda games.

This most likely applies to the mainline entries on “console”, since after all, it’s unlikely that Nintendo would be able to create an open-world Zelda game on a regular basis. Besides, Eiji Aonuma previously hinted at/confirmed we would see games from the “handheld team” in the future.

  • Monster Hunter XX (Nintendo 3DS), with strategy guide for the Lao-Shan Lung and the Barufaruku, but also an interview of the developers.

The latest issue of Famitsu magazine will be released on Thursday in Japan (Wednesday afternoon in Europe/North America, for the digital edition at least).
