As announced the other day, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is on the cover of Game Informer this month, which means the game is getting month-long online coverage on the magazine’s website. There will be various features, covering the following topics:
- how the game truly re-examines the Zelda formula
- plenty of details about the new dungeons
- what’s in store for the future of 2D Zelda games
- Eiji Aonuma’s favorite Zelda games
- and more…
In this post, we’re going to gather all the “minor” features, that don’t really need a separate post, but also links to the separate post for the major features, so you can have everything in one place!

Feature #7: Storytelling in Zelda games, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild’s “trick”
The 7th online feature is a video interview with Shigeru Miyamoto and Eiji Aonuma, where the pair discuss storytelling in the Legend of Zelda games. To be more precise, the interview goes over how some of their previous comments about storytelling in games have been “miscontrued”, what they learned from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, and the team’s approach to storytelling in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Feature #8: Missing Zelda tropes
Feature #9: Balancing fan feedback
In this online feature, Eiji Aonuma and Shigeru Miyamoto talk about how they balance fan feedback (giving them what they want), and providing new and unexpected gameplay experiences. The interview also goes over how Nintendo deals with focus testing, and more.
