The Legend of Zelda - The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - Netflix
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is an action-adventure game developed and published by Nintendo. An entry in the longrunning The Legend of Zelda series, it was released for the Nintendo Switch and Wii U consoles on March 3, 2017. The story follows Link, who awakens from a hundred-year slumber to a mysterious voice that guides him to defeat Calamity Ganon before it can destroy the kingdom of Hyrule. The game is played in an open world environment. Players are given little instruction and can explore freely: common tasks include collecting multi-purpose items to aid in various objectives or solving puzzles and side-quests in order to obtain rewards. Breath of the Wild's world is unstructured, designed to reward experimentation and allows the story to be completed in a nonlinear fashion. Development of Breath of the Wild lasted five years. According to producer Eiji Aonuma, the team wanted to reinvent the series; thus they introduced new elements, such as a detailed physics engine, high-definition visuals, and voice acting. The game was planned for release in 2015 as a Wii U exclusive, but was delayed twice due to problems with the physics engine. Breath of the Wild was a launch game for the Switch as well as the final Nintendo game for the Wii U. Two downloadable content packs were released later in 2017. Breath of the Wild received acclaim for its open-ended gameplay and attention to detail; many critics called it a landmark in open-world game design, despite minor criticism for its technical performance at launch. It won numerous awards, including several Game of the Year awards, and many publications have called it one of the greatest video games of all time. It is the bestselling Zelda game, selling nearly ten million copies worldwide by March 2018.
The Legend of Zelda - Plot - Netflix
Breath of the Wild introduces a world marked by recurring conflict between the kingdom of Hyrule and the evil Calamity Ganon. Each time Ganon resurfaced, he was defeated by Princess Zelda, the descendant of the Goddess Hylia, with the help of her champion. Over time, Hyrule matured into an advanced civilization. Using their knowledge of Sheikah technology, they prepared for Ganon's inevitable return by creating four massive animalistic machines called Divine Beasts and an army of autonomous, mechanical weapons called Guardians. Upon Ganon's return, four great warriors were given the title of Champion and tasked with piloting one of the Divine Beasts to attack and weaken him, while the princess and her hero used the Guardians to protect them while the hero struck Ganon down with the Master Sword, allowing the princess to seal Ganon away. 10,000 years later, the kingdom of Hyrule had lost its technological greatness and reverted to a medieval state. Upon reading their ancestors' prophecies, they learned the signs of Ganon's return and recovered the Divine Beasts and Guardians after excavating land throughout the kingdom. Key members of Hyrule's various races—Daruk, a warrior of the mountainous Goron, Mipha, a princess of the aquatic Zora, Revali, the most skilled archer among the bird-like Rito, and Urbosa, the chief of the desert-dwelling Gerudo—were assembled to pilot the Divine Beasts as Zelda’s Champions, while Princess Zelda and Link, her appointed knight, attempted to stop the evil using the same strategy as their ancestors. However, Ganon appeared from beneath Hyrule Castle and possessed the Guardians and Divine Beasts, turning them against Hyrule. In the “Great Calamity” which followed, King Rhoam, the Champions, and everyone in the Castle were killed, the castle town was destroyed, and Link was gravely wounded defending Zelda. Zelda survived, and after having Link taken to safety and hiding the Master Sword, faced Ganon alone, using her magic to restrain him within the castle walls. 100 years later, an amnesiac Link awakens from within the Shrine of Resurrection. A mysterious female voice guides him to the now ruined Hyrule where he meets an old man who, after helping Link adjust to the ruined world, reveals himself to be the restless spirit of King Rhoam, the last King of Hyrule. The king explains to Link that Ganon has been sealed in Hyrule Castle for one hundred years, but has continued to strengthen, and the king pleads for Link to defeat him before he breaks free and destroys the world. Link visits the locations of the Divine Beasts, regaining his memories as the respective races of the former champions help him board the Divine Beasts to purge them of the monsters Ganon had created. The champions' spirits are released along with their Divine Beasts, and after offering their powers to Link, pilot them once again, preparing them to attack Ganon once Link storms Hyrule Castle. As Link travels the world, he also comes across key areas that he and Zelda traveled to in the past, eventually regaining all his memories. After obtaining the Master Sword from the Lost Woods, Link defeats Ganon with help from the Divine Beasts, but Ganon survives and manifests himself in his true form: an ethereal malicious monster called Dark Beast Ganon. Using Zelda’s Bow of Light, Link defeats Ganon and Zelda seals him away, restoring peace to Hyrule and allowing the spirits of King Rhoam and the champions to finally depart. In the epilogue, Zelda, while noting that Ganon is gone for the time being, realizes that Hyrule must be rebuilt and that she and Link must begin the process themselves. If the player fulfills certain conditions, they unlock an alternative ending.
